NO SLOWING DOWN FOR “SLOWER” SINGER, FILMORE

Monday, August 5, 2019 - 12:15pm

Fresh off his scorching hot set at Windy City Smokeout in Chicago, country singer/songwriter Filmore finds himself with a certified hit on his hands via his single “Slower,” his first for label Curb Records. With each passing day, the addictive song with its ultra-satisfying banjo backbeat, has already surpassed 26 million on-demand streams-and-climbing and is earning its place as ‘the song of the summer’ according to NBC’s “TODAY.” 
 
Growing up in Wildwood, Missouri, Filmore would come home from school and, as he told Rolling Stone, listen to everything from salsa music his Colombian mother would play while cooking dinner, to his dad’s Eighties favorites like John Mellencamp and Def Leppard. 


"I grew up listening to all types of music - my parents music, the internet, and the radio stations in my hometown. From high school to college and then Nashville, my music influences just kept growing, and continue to," shares Filmore. "I found my musical sound by being completely true to myself. The moto I’ve built my career and music upon is 'anything but typical.' I’ve been in Nashville seven years, and in the last couple it feels like I’ve hit a groove musically and on the road.”
 
“Slower” was written by Filmore, alongside Steven Dale Jones and Justin Ebach, and produced by Ebach. 
 
This Friday's (Aug. 9) release of an acoustic version of “Slower” follows last month’s additional release of new song “Livin Easy,” and recent previous track “Other Girl,” the latter two off his forthcoming full studio album set for release later this year.
 
Filmore is also grabbing the attention of some of country music’s hottest artists. This fall, he will tour alongside Lauren Alaina on her That Girl Was Me Tour and also share the stage in August with Dan +Shay, following a July date with the duo. 
 
And thanks to the demand from fans, Filmore will soon set off on his The Slower Tour which includes high profile stops in New York, Las Vegas and Nashville with special guests Alana Springsteen and Niko Moon on select dates.
