Gunhill Road Releases Special Tribute Song in Advance of World Radio Day 2024. Gunhill Road – the enduring band that has been making multi-genre rock and pop music spanning more than five decades, has released a brand new song and video titled “Over The Radio Waves” just in time for World Radio Day 2024 (February 13). The song is a heartfelt tribute to the continuing influence of radio around the world and calls for broadcasters and listeners alike “to all stand together” in celebrating the 13th annual edition of the United Nations/UNESCO-designated international day. Gunhill Road has developed a unique niche in recent years along with tens of thousands of internet followers powered in large part to the attention and airplay given it by talk radio as a result of the group addressing topics of news and social concern in a highly musical and creative way.
“I Got a Line in New York City” is another exciting advance track from GUNHILL ROAD’s forthcoming fifth album. The song is a genre-bending combination of jazz, rock and blues with a Broadway flair. Further energized by its provocative music video, “I Got a Line in New York City” is slightly abstract and even mystical – while, simultaneously, heart-tugging and down-to-earth. The engaging narrative puts a new twist on the classic story of a young person with dreams of making it on the stage facing the cold, harsh reality of the big time. The visual images that bring stunning dimension to the video were created by human artists tapping into the assistance of leading-edge generative AI.
I Know You're Real
This animal welfare anthem is performed by Michael Harrison, the legendary radio personality, and Gunhill Road member, who also penned the lyrics.
I Know You're Real
Though similar to the spoken version, this spirited rendition is sung by our member, Brian Koonin; also a recording, Broadway, and concert performer.
Gunhill Road pays tribute to the victims of 9-11 commemorating the 22nd anniversary of the tragic attack. “My Friend is Going Away” appears on the “What Year Is THIS!” album.” The video takes the emotional song to a new dimension. It is a sad but hopeful look back at that unforgettable day with a strong element of love, hope and renewal for the future.
