New Album, Slow Motion Movie Scene Out June 22 
 

LISTEN TO "SEROTONIN" HERE

ON TOUR THIS SUMMER 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - MAY 04, 2023 -  Nashville-based indie pop rock artist and singer-songwriter Mickey Commodore is proud to announce the release of their deeply personal new single, "Serotonin." The song, inspired by the artist's own experience of losing happiness to depression, arrives just in time for Mental Health Awareness Month, shedding light on mental health struggles and the importance of seeking help.

 

"Serotonin" was penned during one of the most challenging periods of Mickey's life, following the loss of their second job within a year due to the ongoing pandemic. The song serves as an open letter to the serotonin leaving their brain, capturing the raw emotions of that dark time. Mickey's path to recovery began when they reached out to Music Health Alliance, an organization dedicated to helping musicians access health insurance, medical care, and financial assistance. Through Music Health Alliance's invaluable support, Mickey connected with a therapist and received a grant for therapy sessions, setting him on a journey of healing and self-discovery.

 

In an effort to raise awareness about mental health and give back to the organization that played a crucial role in their recovery, Mickey has designed a limited edition t-shirt available for purchase on their website, mickeycommodore.com. All proceeds from the t-shirt sales will be donated to Music Health Alliance, supporting their mission to assist others in the music industry facing similar challenges.

 

The latest single is a powerful reminder of the importance of mental health and the life-changing impact of seeking help. By sharing his story and supporting Music Health Alliance, Mickey hopes to encourage open conversations about mental health and inspire those who are struggling to reach out for the support they need.  For more information about Mickey Commodore, the new single "Serotonin," and the limited edition t-shirt supporting Music Health Alliance, please visit mickeycommodore.com.  OR you can donate directly to Music Health Alliance via their website HERE.
 

In March, Mickey premiered the album’s first single, the charming indie pop gem “Found”.  In April, the second single, a heartbreak rock anthem called "Are We In Love?"

This summer, Mickey Commodore will do a “Release Residency” every Wednesday in June at The 5 Spot in Nashville, TN before heading out on the road to Baton Rouge, New Orleans, Birmingham, Austin, Atlanta, New York and Chicago.  

Mickey’s Slow Motion Movie Scene spans pop, rock, singer-songwriter and a little “we can’t quite put our finger on it” all under the banner of anti-establishment and pro-community.  Self produced and co-produced (on 5 songs) by Jordan Lehning (Andrew Combs, Caitlin Rose, Joshua Hedley, Rodney Crowell), engineered and mixed by Jarrad K (Ruston Kelly, Lucie Silvas, Kate Nash, Betty Who) the album confronts as well as provides comic relief, documenting Mickey’s pandemic highs and lows, mostly lows. The LP’s 10 original tracks (all written by Mickey aka Jason Martin, two songs co-written by his wife Kree Harrison) are as much about making fun of the status quo and rebelling against it, as they are about the complications of love and relationships and the ongoing struggle of staying mentally healthy/self love and care.  

 

Growing up in the swamps of south Louisiana, Mickey discovered the legends of his musician father’s era - Led Zeppelin, James Taylor, Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Ray Charles and the underground songwriters of the same era - Dan Fogelberg, Guy Clark, Jerry Jeff Walker - were an integral part to developing Mickey’s sound over the years.  Jason Martin has released several albums since 2011, but after an ongoing battle of distribution companies confusing his music with other people named Jason Martin, Jason decided to change it up with this new batch of music, which is completely different than anything he’s ever done before.  Mickey Commodore is what some people call your “porn name”, the pet you grew up with and the street you grew up on.  “It’s so stupid,but it’s a pretty good band name!”  says Jason.
