The singer/songwriter is close to completing his new EP.
The recent release of singer/songwriter Keaton Simons’ new single “The Way it Goes” has attracted some major attention -- including love from David Duchovny, The Script, Tea Leoni, Paul Reiser, Lance Bass, Greg Grunberg, Josh Kelley, and American Idol alums Chris Daughtry, Paul McDonald and Didi Benami -- and it's all for a good cause.
Proceeds from the song -- a sexy, soulful, dark piece co-written by Simons and producer John Nathaniel -- will benefit Natural Child and Rancho Cucamonga Animal Care and Adoption Center. Simons is the voice of The Natural Child audiobook, written by Jan Baron Hunt, and a lifelong lover of animals.
Mastered by Tom Coyne, winner of three Grammy Awards for Adele, Taylor Swift and Sam Smith’s albums, the song also showcases the world music and blues influences that inform Simons' sonic landscape. The California native wraps his pensive vocals ably around the lyrics, “While you're hiding, I'm here dying, that's just the way it goes” against a moody swirl of drums and guitars.
