Johnny Gates has released his atmospheric new single ‘Brooklyn Nights’, a guitar-driven journey tinged with Americana. Johnny’s emotive vocal is the perfect vehicle for his narrative-led songwriting. Plucked guitars and expansive production add to an already layered track.
“‘Brooklyn Nights’ is actually the first song that I wrote all by myself. It’s about a girl that I used to go to New York City with when I was younger… we would always stroll around Brooklyn together and dream up stories about our future, about us living together. We pictured it all happening, but it never did. And now, I can’t go back there without thinking about her. So I wrote this song about just that… Connecting a place to a person.” Johnny Gates
