The Bacon Brothers Unveil New Single

Accompanying Video Directed By Kevin Bacon (Watch Video Here)


Kevin, Michael and the band work remotely from their home studios.

The Bacon Brothers are pleased to announce the release of their new single, "She-Zee-Zee (Easy On My Eyes)" and accompanying video. The track was written by Kevin Bacon and produced by The Bacon Brothers. The video featuring Kyra Sedgwick, was directed by Kevin. Both single and video are out today and available everywhere.

When discussing the new single, Kevin says, “I wrote "She-Zee-Zee (Easy On My Eyes)" months ago so it’s really a coincidence that the subject of the video is so timely right now while everyone is isolated and away from loved ones. I've always been a fan of the phrase 'easy on my eyes', I had a little riff and a loop I liked. Wrote it on a screened in porch. I seemed to remember that in Ojai, California there is a thing called “The Pink Moment” where people sit on a mountain and watch the sunset."

Michael Bacon adds, "Ironically, the recording side of the music business has been moving toward stay-at-home recording studios, isolated individual performances, and massive file sharing since way before the crisis. We're all used to contributing this way and making it sound like we're all hanging out in a big studio together. That being said, I miss the live gigs, the bus, the crew, the lousy food, the goofy meet and greets, and playing all together on a stage in a new town we've never been to before.  I'm so glad we banked a bunch of new music like "She-Zee-Zee" and are ready to do more from our little rabbit hutch studios."

The brothers are currently putting the finishing touches on their new album which will coincide with the annual summer tour. The band feels strongly that music is a healer and with new songs and an emotionally charged live show, they hope to bring joy and happiness to their fans.

Fiercely devoted to making music, even from an early age (they cite such influences as the Rolling Stones, the Beatles, Motown, Led Zeppelin, Philly soul, and James Taylor, with mentions from Michael of Pete Seeger, Jimmy Rogers, Chet Atkins, and the Jim Kweskin Jug Band, and additional kudos to Michael from Kevin for his input), the two siblings share a singular body of work that’s found them spending more than 20 years of working the road and paying their dues, resulting in nine albums – Forosoco (1997,) Getting There (1999,) Can’t Complain (2001,) Live: The No Food Jokes Tour (2003,) White Knuckles (2005,) New Year’s Day (2009,) Philadelphia Road (2011,) 36 Cents (2014,) and the eponymous, The Bacon Brothers (2018) -- spanning rock, soul, folk and Americana. Never content to be typecast, they’re fiercely devoted to the cause of making music, undeterred by fame, fortune or the pitfalls that frequently obstruct the path to success.

As far as their day jobs are concerned, Kevin Bacon is an award-winning actor with 80 films and dozens of television and stage credits to his name, resulting in numerous Emmy and Screen Actors Guild nominations cited in his resume. He's recently been promoting his Spotify podcast The Last Degree of Kevin Bacon as well as his #IStayHomeFor campaign on social media. Older brother Michael is an Emmy-winning composer, who recently scored the documentary That Way Madness Lies. Other recent works include the audiobook: You Don't Look Your Age...And Other Fairytales and the HBO documentary RX: Early Detection with Sandra Lee which premiered at Sundance last year.

Still, while it’s clear that Michael and Kevin don’t view the band as simply a sideline, their commitment is clear. Indeed, the high points have been many. Kevin points to a recent opening slot at The Grand Ole Opry, supporting The Band at Carnegie Hall, surveying the Texas landscape in the midst of a lightning storm, rocking the Stone Pony on the Jersey Shore and performing at the legendary Cain’s Ballroom in Tulsa. For Michael, it’s been all about making their mark overseas, touring in Germany and Japan, and the fascination he feels performing for overseas audiences.

So while casual observers may be awed by their Hollywood credentials, critics have been quick to note that the brothers - Michael on vocals, guitar and cello and Kevin on vocals, guitar and percussion -Paul Guzzone (bass, backing vocals), Joe Mennonna (keyboards, accordion), Tim Quick (lead guitar, mandolin and backing vocals) and Frank Vilardi (drums) -- eschew any hint of glitz and glamour in favor of an ethic gleaned.
