“Every now and then, something truly unique and great comes along in the world of music,” (The American Rag) and right now, that something is the golden voice of Rory Partin.
In anticipation of his forthcoming album, Rory Partin brings his signature blue-eyed soul and All-Star big band arrangements to his new single "Everbody's Got Somebody But Me"
Partin has reached out to his faithful fans to create his upcoming album, the follow up to 2006’s The Very Thought of You. His fan-funded new album is slated for release in Spring 2014.
A multi-instrumentalist (vocals, piano, guitar, trumpet, harmonica, Irish Tin Whistle) Partin had his first taste of the big time singing back-up for five-time Grammy winner Larnelle Harris. After over three years touring internationally with Harris, Partin returned to the states and settled in Nashville, eventually leading Rory Partin & His All-Star Big Band at events such as George W. Bush’s Inaugural Ball and The National Symphony Ball at The Kennedy Center. Relocating to Los Angeles, Partin has redefined himself as a solo artist, a powerhouse of blue-eyed soul, poised to take his place among artists like Michael Bublé and Harry Connick, Jr. Backed by an 18 piece big band, Partin has gained a reputation as a heartfelt and emotional performer, “singing from a place deep inside that screams to be heard.” This is evidenced in his live shows and recordings, such as “Georgia On My Mind” (originally made famous by Ray Charles, one of Partin’s major inspirations.)
