UK Country Artist Tim Prottey-Jones partners with Stephanie Quayle on new track "Until I Do"

MUMBAI: As founder member of Decca/Universal UK recording artists The Wandering Hearts, Tim Prottey-Jones received his Opry debut in 2018. During the bucket-list trip to America, he shared stages with the likes of Chris Stapleton, Marty Stuart & John Prine in such prestigious venues as The Ryman Auditorium, The Bluebird Cafe & Graceland. The band toured extensively throughout the UK, supporting such iconic artists as Tom Petty, Stevie Nicks, and Eric Clapton in a string of Hyde Park shows.

Since leaving the band in 2019, Tim has been laying down the concrete foundations for a solo career, writing and recording a collection of sparkling modern country tracks. His first two solo singles, ‘Bite the Bullet’ & ‘Good Life’ were released to critical acclaim and received their exclusive first plays on The Country Music Show with Bob Harris on BBC Radio 2.

Hot on the heels of ‘Good Life’, comes Tim’s brand new single, ‘Until I Do’, featuring CMT’s “Next Women of Country” inductee, Stephanie Quayle. For some time, Tim had wanted to record a duet that would help build a bridge between the USA and UK and when longtime friend Jeff Cohen played ‘Until I Do’, he knew on first listen that it had to be this song. Penned by top Nashville songwriter Jeff, alongside Grammy nominated Jamie Floyd & Steven McMorran, the heartfelt lyrics describe a feeling of longing for a future love.

“For me, the song paints a picture of a search for a love that may never be realised. But what is worse? Searching and never finding that special person or not even trying to find the one? There’s a hope to the lyrics that I believe will speak to the listener as it did with me. It’s that voice in your head that says, “if you don’t try, you’ll never know” and sometimes, that’s exactly what we need to hear. As people, as musicians, as lovers.” - Tim Prottey-Jones

Top of Tim’s list of artists he’d love to duet with was Stephanie Quayle and as fate would have it, he discovered that Jeff already knew her well. He reached out and to Tim’s surprise Stephanie instantly said yes! Named “An Artist You Need To Know” by Rolling Stone Country, Stephanie has featured as a performer and guest on The Kelly Clarkson Show, has been hosted by the Grand Ole Opry numerous times, and has shared stages with the likes of Willie Nelson, Bonnie Raitt, Aaron Watson, and LOCASH. The Big Sky Music Group recording artist has had a massive presence at country radio garnering over 100 million audience impressions and ranking Top 10 in Current Female Airplay with standout singles ‘Whatcha Drinkin 'Bout’ and ‘Selfish’ in the last few years. Together their vocals blend with seamless authenticity for ‘Until I Do’ while the modern production on the track remains rooted in a nostalgic country sound.

“Tim and Stephanie are the perfect voices to bring this song into the world. They really capture the emotion we were hoping for when we wrote it” - Jeff Cohen

Teaming up with the Grand Ole Opry darling saw the inevitable 2020 way of collaboration. Due to ongoing travel restrictions in the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic Tim and Stephanie recorded remotely from separate continents. Yet this distance did not stand in the way of the magic they have captured with their performance.

"Tim is an incredible artist and human and when he reached out about the opportunity to collaborate on his song ‘Until I Do’, it was an honour to be a part of it. We recorded all parts of this song across the pond from each other which was wild and magical. In a time where we all feel so separated, it's amazing we were still able to bring this all together…even from thousands of miles away. I can’t wait to get back to the UK once travel is a bit safer and for us to get to play this song together!” - Stephanie Quayle
