    NEW YORK, NY, March 16, 2015 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Sha-La Music, Inc. announces the release of the new Turn Around and Go Digital Single by Roots Rocker/Recording Artist DownTown Mystic on March 23rd. The 3 song Single will be digitally distributed by The Orchard and available pre-release to Radio exclusively on AirPlay Direct.

Turn Around and Go marks DownTown Mystic's first release since the DownTown Mystic album in late 2013. That album spent 40 consecutive weeks on the Americana Radio Airplay Charts, with the single Way To Know crossing over and going to #1 on the Roots Music Report AltRock Song Chart. Prior to releasing the DownTown Mystic album, Sha-La released 3 digital singles that garnered airplay on over 10,000 radio stations worldwide. A full length DownTown Mystic album called Rock'n'Roll Romantic is planned for release later this year.

DownTown Mystic is the indie project of writer & producer Robert Allen that features top musicians, including a few that play with major Rock'n'Roll Icons Bruce Springsteen and Ian Hunter. Robert says, "Playing with different musicians is particularly interesting to me and I always learn something from them. I've been very lucky to have the opportunity to create an ensemble of great musicians that I could play with and get their take on my songs."

Turn Around and Go features Tommy Mastro (The Discontent) on drums and PJ Farley (Ra, Trixter) on bass with Singer/Songwriter Bruce Engler supplying harmony vocals. Robert comments, "Tommy is one of the best rock drummers I've ever seen and PJ is just as impressive on bass. Both are from different bands and styles, but very current. They rock the groove with a great modern feel that has this old school vibe at the same time. I can hear Bruno Mars singing and knocking it out."

Besides Turn Around and Go, the digital single also includes Believe in Nothing and Backdoor, a previously unreleased live track. Believe in Nothing is the final track that Robert wrote and recorded with modern rockers The Discontent, and Backdoor was recorded live with The Sidney Green Street Band, featuring Steve Holley, Paul Page, Lance Doss and Justin "JJ" Jordan. All of these musicians have been part of the ensemble that has played on the last 2 DownTown Mystic albums.

In between album releases DownTown Mystic continues building a successful sync licensing career with music placed on TV shows, most notably The Voice on NBC and American Pickers on The History Channel, as well a host of shows on the WB, MTV, USA, CNN, Discovery, National Geographic, TLC, WE TV, GACTV and Destination America. Last year DownTown Mystic had 2 tracks featured in a web video ad for Dr. Pepper and 8-time Female Wrestling Champ/Country Singer, Mickie James. This year DownTown Mystic music will be heard on the big screen and on Clear Channel Radio stations.
