"July Cruise "A Song About You" Single Premiere"

Tatiana McConnico is a American singer and songwriter better known by her stage name as July Cruise. She’s ready to bring soulful pop back into the music scene in a much more electrifying way with her debut single “A Song About You” that’s scheduled for release on digital retailers on July 23, 2013 via Opus Label. This debut single brings a beat to which you can dance yet infectious lyrics to sing along to. Catchy and effective, ready to conquer the top 40.

Her inspirations in music since childhood have been Fiona Apple, No Doubt, Diana Ross and The Supremes. But July hasn’t sat around just hoping she could share her talents with the world. She has appeared on shows such as “Star Search” and “American Idol” and sang at WBLS’s 20th Anniversary Celebration, where Alicia Keyes and Angie Stone also performed. At the American Idol audition, Randy Jackson referred to the singer/songwriter as “the best voice in Birmingham“. In addition to making it to the top 40 on American Idol, July also performed on Showtime at the Apollo, The Jenny Show, and Madison Square Garden. - Ultimate Music


"'Idol' Alum July Cruise Celebrates her independence on 'A Song About You'"

After making the top 40 of "American Idol" back in 2007, soul singer July Cruise is back on the music scene. She premiered her debut single, "A Song About You," on Tuesday via Opus Label. On the jubilant pop track, she channels her inner dancefloor diva.

Cruise - born Tatiana McConnico - auditioned for "American Idol" back in 2007 where she finished in the top 40. After a few gigs at spots like The Apollo and Madison Square Garden, she signed with Opus Label. Her first single with the label, "A Song About You," sees Cruise issue her declaration of independence from an awful ex-boyfriend.

On "A Song About You," July gets her Carly Simon "You're So Vain" moment, dedicating her dazzling dance track to a dud lover. Like Simon, Cruise calls out her ex's vain attitude, singing, "Just 'cuz I wrote a song about you don't mean I give a damn about you." Her soulful voice gives added weight to bold lines like "July don't cry." Cruise doesn't cry, but she does get even with this unapologetic club kiss-off.

Cruise's "A Song About You" was released to iTunes on Tuesday, July 23.

""A Song About You" by July Cruise"

So this is how it is right, just for today – we’re cutting loose like it is a Friday, because to be honest if we feel like a bop, we will bop and we won’t be leaving it just until the end of the working week to dictate that we can pop on our dancing shoes.

Anyway, since we have this new party time dance floor filler “A Song About You” from July Cruise to serve up the stomping club beats, how could we possibly not do anything but bump our booty to it!

July Cruise is infact the alias of Tatiana McConnico, who’s briefly had a brush in the past as an American Idol alumi, and whilst never giving up on the dream of performing and sharing her music of course, has now turned herself around into July Cruise debuting an über bubbly pop tune whose bouncy club inducing groove is a fun soundtrack to break out and dance too. - EQ Music Blog

Bio

A native of Atlanta, Georgia, July Cruise’s soulful sound and upbeat tracks are reminiscent of Donna Summer in her prime. July’s exciting and cutting edge stage performance is evocative of a young Tina Turner.

July’s first single “A Song About You” was released July 23rd, 2013 on Opus Label and is generating a great amount of buzz in Los Angeles, Atlanta, and all over the internet. Ultimate Music called it "Catchy and effective, ready to conquer the top 40." July Cruise is one of 2013’s best new underground artists.

"Summer Storm" is the second single which is set to drop October 15th, 2013. The song features Clifton Williams aka CLIFTUN. CLIFTUN's unorthodox and experimental approach to rap sets his music apart from any of your typical hip hop players. The avant garde rap slayer finds inspiration in art, pop culture, news and everyday life to tell undeniably gripping, witty, and hard hitting stories that will leave you wanting more and more of his pulse pounding flow.
