Alberta-based singer-songwriter Jeff Catto’s newest single, “Drinking Buddies”, is available everywhere today.
On the track, Catto teams up with Steve Newsome to celebrate new friends raising a glass after a long week at work.
Catto got help writing the track from friend and songwriter Terry Fernihough. Catto knew before they even started writing that he “wanted to write a song that everyone could sing along with, one that anyone could relate to.” He says “Terry really helped bring the idea to completion. He’s one of my favourite co-writers.”
Steve Newsome, who lends his vocals to the new single, recently released his own song “Simple Things”. “’Drinking Buddies’ is a great tune that Jeff invited me to join him on,” Newsome says. “It’s a song about a couple of guys who get together after a tough week to enjoy some beverages and blow off some steam.”
Catto goes on to share that “when folks hear ‘Drinking Buddies’, I hope they find happiness. I hope they hear their next summer anthem.”
With the help of Fernihough and Newsome, Catto has absolutely nailed the feeling he was going for on the single. The pounding drums are sure to get you stomping your feet, the chorus is a real earworm that you won’t be able to get out of your head after just one listen, and Catto and Newsome’s back-and forths on the track solidify “Drinking Buddies” has a certified anthem. You can really feel the energy and charisma these two artists have on the track.
Catto recently returned to the country music scene after about a year away. He explains that it’s the best decision he ever made. “I released 4 singles within the year including my Christmas single and have 3 other songs I’ve written at radio, cut by other artists,” he says. “My latest single ‘Friend’ has been played across Canada, had international success and just went over 100k streaming on Spotify alone. We also made the move from Ontario to Alberta! It’s been a big year.”
