Nashville (by-way-of St. Louis and L.A.) country artist Stephen Martines brings a modern vibe to traditional country music, which is showcased on his recent heartfelt third single Sounds Like Whiskey.
Martines is not only a singer-songwriter/musician, but an actor as well. He’s appeared in TV shows like Vampire Diaries, Supernatural, The Closer, and Burn Notice. While he may have several acting credits under his belt, Martines’ passion for music also shines through.
His move to Nashville stoked his creative fires and has led to a run of singles that includes Sounds Like Whiskey.
The track is a reflective, yet mellow ballad that spotlights Martines’ soulful, longing vocals amid classic mellifluous guitar strum and a steady drum pace. A rock guitar line soars in the end third of the song, giving it a lively kick.
