New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Chart-topping songwriter and Grammy-nominated frontman David Nail has spent the last decade leaving his unique mark on modern country music. Now he begins a new chapter with the announcement of his new project called David Nail and The Well Ravens and their debut EP. The project will be Nail's first independent release following the break-up with his longtime major label. It finds the charismatic singer reaching a new creative peak with a record that matches his adept melodic chops - as heard on #1 hits like "Whatever She's Got" and "Let It Rain" - with atmospheric rock & roll guitars, lush keyboards, drum loops, and rule-breaking arrangements.

Today he released the lead single off the EP titled "Heavy." He spoke about the new project with Rolling Stone Country yesterday who described "atmospheric rock sounds that wouldn't be out of place on a late-Nineties Oasis album."

Set to release this fall, the 7-track EP straddles the boundary between country storytelling, indie rock instrumentation, pop hooks, and the southern twang of Nail's voice. Now free from the major label restraints, Nail and The Well Ravens has allowed David to turn a new page, uncover new ground, and expand his sound inspired not only by his country roots, but also the guitar-heavy stomp of Oasis, the reverb-heavy wash of Ryan Adams, the rhythmic punch of the Black Keys, and the anthemic swell of Kings of Leon. Billed not as a solo album, but as a collaboration, he enlisted help from two longtime partners; multi-instrumentalist Andrew Petroff and producer Jason Hall.

The result is Nail's most sonically adventurous work to date, as well as his first release as an independent artist. With one foot planted in the organic sound of his country past and the other pointing toward newer territory, he shows off the full range of his abilities. He's a country crooner one moment, an indie rocker the next, and a diversely compelling frontman throughout. Most importantly, he's an artist following his muse, making music without rules or regulations.
