Briston Maroney has come a long way since his American Idol days four years ago when he was just 15 years old. Now Nashville-based, the singer-songwriter released his debut EP, Big Shot, in 2017 and has recently followed that up with the 5-track EP, Carnival. Our Song of the Day, “Under My Skin,” comes off the latter and sees Maroney rock out Jack White-style.
"'Under My Skin' was our attempted musical tribute to my early-teen obsession with Zepplin and the Doors, and a song that ended up substantially less badass than them," says Maroney. "That being said, it's still one of my favorites to play live and hopefully will mean something to other kids who didn't really wanna play football in high school but did it anyway.”
The song comes with a compelling video shot in Amelia Island, Florida by Drew Bauml with direction from Joey Brodnax. Watch it below.
