Although they’ve consistently made newcomer waves in the Country genre with their individual song releases, Photo Finish Records’ breakout duo LAKEVIEW are ready to take it up a notch with their brand-new SMALL TOWN FAMOUS EP – out June 25.

Serving as their debut project release, the SMALL TOWN FAMOUS EP highlights all the standout aspects of the duo’s signature sound through a curated collection of five LAKEVIEW originals – all co-written and co-produced by the pair (made up of Jesse Denaro + Luke Healy) alongside a handful of creative collaborators. Wanting to shine a light on their personal favorite tunes from their catalog, the SMALL TOWN FAMOUS EP not only features some brand-new summertime staples, but also highlights a couple of the songs that helped establish LAKEVIEW as one of Sounds Like Nashville’s Artists to Watch for 2021 – including their debut anthem, “Poor Me,” and fan-favorite singalong, “She Drove Me To The Bar.”

“We are so dang excited to share this EP with everyone,” Denaro explains. “With everything that has happened over the past year, this project has been a long time coming, but it feels so great to finally release some new music and give fans another chance to learn a little more about us with each of these songs. This EP is essentially a collection of the songs we’re most proud of, so when it’s all said and done, we just hope everyone enjoys it as much as we do – and that they sit back, crack a cold one, and turn that volume up.”

In celebration, LAKEVIEW are also sharing a sneak peek of what fans can expect from the new music off the project with the release of the Rock & Roll infused anthem “Hits Different” – available across all streaming platforms and digital retailers today (6/4). Written by Denaro, Healy, Quint Collins and Jake Rose, the hard-charging track raises a glass to small town living, spotlighting some of the best parts of planting your roots outside of the city – because everything from fishing and skinny dipping in a no-name creek to just sipping reasonably priced beer at your local dive just “Hits Different.”
“This song is the perfect combination of our backgrounds, both as songwriters and musicians,” says Healy. “From the wall of guitars to the slamming tones of the drums, I love how intense and heavy this song feels – in the best way possible. I think our Rock & Roll roots definitely influence each of our songs, but this time, we really let them come out to play. For me, something about this track truly hits different, and I hope everyone who hears it feels the same way.”

Although they’re fresh off their headlining run on Tin Roof’s NASHVILLE HITS THE ROOF concert series, which kicked off on April 30 in Birmingham, AL and wrapped on May 22 in Iowa City, IA, hitting eight different states with 11 shows in total, LAKEVIEW are readying to get back on the road this summer. With upcoming stops in the cities that helped mold them into the artists they are today, LAKEVIEW will first bring their new music to centerstage at Nashville’s High Watt this Wednesday (6/9), marking their debut full-band performance in Music City, as they serve as direct support for After Midtown.

Just weeks later, the duo will head back to where it all began for a hometown show in Pittsburgh, PA, headlining the Allegheny Summer Concert Series on July 16. Fans can check out more information on that performance HERE.
