THE SCENIC SOUND TO RELEASE SOPHOMORE
STUDIO Album "Like a Fire"
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
PRESS RELEASE - MARCH 9, 2016
On March 21, the Scenic Sound will be releasing ‘Like A Fire,’ the endeavour’s second studio release. The Scenic Sound is primarily the vehicle of singer-songwriter Tim Stead, though he is joined live by a touring band. ‘Like A Fire’ comes on the heels of a 130-performance tour across Canada in support of the previous album, ‘Standing Still.’
‘You & I,’ the first single from the release, was made available on February 29 in the form a lyrical music video on YouTube. A karaoke version of the video is live, too, and the single is available on iTunes right now. The full album, set to drop on March 21, will be available on all major digital distribution platforms and streaming services. (iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, and the like.)
‘Like A Fire’ consists of six new tunes from The Scenic Sound, all of which reveal an inspirational and infectiously catchy landscape in which Stead muses about love, hope, and passion. “We want to create something important,” he says. “Something that people feel like singing and believing.”
Fans can connect with the Scenic Sound online via their social media and main website, all of which can be found below. Fans can sign up for the mail list and receive five free song downloads as well.

With a sincere sound that blends Soul, Pop, Indie, Rock and R&B, The Scenic Sound take an authentic approach to music that is driven by genuine emotions and gentle melodies.
This approach truly reveals the passion, skill and heart of the band. Led by Toronto singer/song-writer Tim Stead, The Scenic Sound released the first album Standing Still in 2014 to enthusiastic support from new fans for the rhythmic & catchy hooks that were written into the fabric of the debut record.
As true confirmation that the music Tim writes is resonating with equal-strength to listeners, The Scenic Sound’s following continues to grow alongside Tim’s own determination, creativity and passion. Inspired by the love and support for the release of Standing Still – The Scenic Sound went on a 130-performance tour across Canada supporting the stunning songs. After touring, Tim went immediately back into writing, recording and discovering new ways to create uplifting, inspiring melodies that offer a truly-sincere & melodic alternative to much of what is experienced in today’s modern-music.
The honest and humble approach to writing has led to creative breakthroughs, new songs and some of the very best music that The Scenic Sound has recorded so far. Produced by the talented Murray Daigle (Serena Ryder, Neverest), The Scenic Sound has a full-album planned for release in March 2016, entitled Like A Fire. With new, exciting material from Like A Fire, and a deep love for creating more new music, The Scenic Sound is aiming to make 2016 a highlight-year and capture your heart with songs, emotions, moods and atmospheres that strike a connection deep within each and every one of us.
