10/20/2017 Young Mister to release "Soft Rock" Oct 27th

When asked to put together some songs that reflected his intimate solo performance in BMG's Los Angeles office the past spring, Fiore drew from a few ideas he’d been toying with in the months prior and wrote two new songs, completing the task in two months time. The short collection of minimally produced ballads appropriately titled Soft Rock is more stripped down than the self-titled debut album released last year.

The lead single, Infinite Space, was inspired by a podcast that discussed the possibilities of extraterrestrial life. Fiore says “One contributor stated that he believed life existed elsewhere but was heartbroken by the fact that we may never get to see their faces. This struck a chord in me, as the true nerd in me is also saddened at the thought of never meeting aliens. I’ve often felt like a loner growing up, as if no one truly understood me, so I tied the sentiment from the podcast into the idea that maybe the only beings that I could ever truly identify with are living somewhere in a galaxy far, far away—too far to ever reach.” This track features backing vocals from Christie Dupree of the bands Eisley and Merriment.

The EP highlights Fiore’s signature “energetic yet considered songwriting” (Popmatters) where he crafts songs that are “gentle, sincere, and built with a strong hook” (Consequence of Sound). Produced by Fiore, Soft Rock was recorded in assorted studios in Charleston, SC, Nashville, TN, and Asheville, NC by Dan McCurry, Taylor Bray, Matt Lohan, and Fiore himself, and mixed in Brooklyn, NY by Charles Newman (The Magnetic Fields, The Bones of J.R. Jones).
