Willie Lock’s new song “My Brother” is out today, October 15th, on all streaming platforms. Learn more about the brand new track below.
“My Brother” is a solo-write by local NYC artist Willie Lock. Lock shared that he wrote the song “after hearing the news that a close friend had passed. It is my tribute to a great person, and the most personal song I have ever released”.
While so personal to Lock, “My Brother” is also incredibly relatable to anyone that has ever lost someone close to them too soon. It’s about someone you grew up with and shared so many early memories with that helped shape your life. It is a beautiful tribute to a dear friend and you can feel the power of their friendship through Lock’s delivery.
“I’m talking about you and me // Bud lights on the eighteenth tee // And shots of whiskey in Tennessee // Best Friends in the seventh grade // To best man at your wedding day // We said we’d always be there for eachother // Even though we ain’t related // and even though you didn’t make it // You’ll always be // You’ll always be my brother”
The song follows his last release back in February, “Bad Things”, a song about that person that you know isn’t good for you, yet you keep going back to them.
Lock has played several shows in New York City and across Long Island. For our local followers, you may know him as the frontman for Mean Machine or one half of Sunrise Highway. He has plays often plays at local venues like The Inn (Long Beach), Salt Shack (Babylon), Dublin Deck (Patchogue), Dockers (The Hampton) and Red Lion, Rockwood Music Hall, and The Delancey in NYC.
Recently, Lock announced that would be hosting a new series, ‘Songwriter Sunday’ with the Queensfolk collective in Astoria at Sek’end Sun – a writers’ round happening once a month which features New York-based songwriters. He is looking to start more writing rounds around NYC as well.
