Gee Watts’ ‘Church’ is your Pitch Music Awards song of the day


This year, the 2014
Pitch Music Awards Showcase is split over two nights: This Saturday, July 19, at the Riot Room and Friday, July 25, at Knuckleheads Saloon (lineup details and tickets here.) The PMA Awards Show is at the Uptown Theater, held this year on Sunday, August 3, and hosted by World Air Guitar Champion Eric “Mean” Melin and Mills Record Co.’s Judy Mills (tickets here).

To count down to the awards ceremony – and help introduce you to this year’s picks – we’re debuting a “song of the day” each weekday until the show from one of this year’s batch of nominees.

Gee Watts’ star seems continually on the rise around these parts, especially since the release of his long-awaited full-length 199x (say ninteen-ninety-never) in April. One of the first tracks we ever heard off 199x was “Church,” a searing nouveau-soul track produced by Arkutec and featuring guest rapper Stik Figa (a Topeka native and another PMA nominee). The beat feels old school in a good way, a little homage to MF DOOM matched with Watts’ own steady, clear-headed flow.
