Old Dominion's Tursi plans solo disc

Tuesday, July 9, 2024 – Brad Tursi of Old Dominion will release his first ever solo project, "Parallel Love," July 19 on Sony Music Nashville.

"This process was purely creative. I wasn't even sure I'd release a project, but when I played it for my team, they all reacted really positively," said Tursi. "It felt like everything aligned to finally share it."

"This may be a little departure from what you are used to from me (don't worry, I'm NOT leaving OD!!), but I hope you take the ride with me! I'm very proud if it<" Tursi said on X.

"Parallel Love" is a collection of songs written over the past 10 years that are reflective. Created and released with the band's full support, the project features co-writes with Stephen Wilson Jr., Dan Isbell, Jessi Alexander, and Matt Jenkins. Tursi produced the entire project with Ben West and Marc Scibilia co-producing select tracks.

Tursi was once a member of the Washington, D.C. rock band Army of Me and joined Old Dominion in 2012.

The hyper positive lead single "Make it Sweet" sets the stage with an ode to the brighter side of everything. Most tracks are upbeat but, ironically, there is not an official party anthem or even a drinking song. The closest they get is "American Style," which is laden with standard innocent imagery ...
CD review - Happy Endings Right off the bat, the title of Old Dominion's album "Happy Endings" is far better than "Meat and Candy," its prior effort. ("Meat" in an album title? Really?)
