Splitstep To Release “The Shoulder” Ft. Ashlei Brianne On February 7

Colorado-based acoustic, rock duo, Splitstep, prepare to launch their brand new single “The Shoulder” before the release of their debut album, Kaleidoscope.

Their newest single, “The Shoulder,” delivers a beaming sound of acoustic harmonies coming together with their mellow, gentle choruses, breathtaking musical builds and authentic lyricism. Anticipate a music video release following the track soon after!

Members Matt Golub (guitarist/singer/songwriter) and Daniel Carrillo (drummer) work together to create a musical collective with a group of musicians and vocalists joining them in blending together a range of original music. Collectively, they produced Splitstep’s debut album Kaleidoscope, available later this year.

Singer Ashlei Brianne joins Splitstep in “The Shoulder” to effortlessly unite their distinct vocals in this raw and wholehearted song. It also features Andy Sydow on piano, Kevin MacKinnon on bass and Daniel Carrillo on drums.

Speaking on the single release, Matt Golub said, “It has been a couple years since my last long-term relationship, and through my experiences with dating, I’ve learned that something special doesn’t come unless you are willing to be vulnerable.”

He finishes, “Just as I struggle with being vulnerable, so too do many of the women that I have dated… Unfortunately, the struggle to be mutually vulnerable can hinder a budding relationship. That is what The Shoulder is about.”
