The single will be released on October 14th.
Today Patton Daye Slater Productions announced the forthcoming release of the haunting new single “Liquid Courage,” a song from the upcoming musical theatre concept album Love & Southern D!scomfort. “Liquid Courage” features music and lyrics by Bobby Daye, lyrics by Monica L. Patton, and vocals by Broadway veteran Ramona Keller (Smokey Joe’s Café, BKLYN The Musical, Caroline, Or Change).
Love & Southern D!scomfort, a musical set in present-day Louisiana, weaves a captivating tale about the Dejoies, an old-money family torn apart by greed, addiction, undiagnosed mental illness, and a long-buried family secret. The story’s protagonist, Wilhelmina Dejoie (Keller), sings “Liquid Courage” when she finally “hits bottom” after a lifetime of self-medicating.
“We’ve all been in that place where we don’t want to face reality or feel the pain of our life,” vocalist Ramona Keller said. “This song reflects those moments when you want something to help escape it all.”
