‘Lay It On Me’ is an earnest slow burn of a song that builds to a rousing, anthemic guitar solo and finale.  Bobby Mahoney and the Seventh Son deliver a heartfelt performance that nods to their New Jersey forebears like Bruce Springsteen and Southside Johnny while forging their own 21st Century sound. The video features the band performing in front of a bright green background that some industrious fan will use to chromakey in additional imagery. The song is from their forthcoming E.P. on Telegraph Hill Records, ‘We Go On’.

Speaking of the emotional new single frontman Bobby Mahoney says, “It’s ultimately about recognizing our own boundaries, and how much each of us can take on at once without being burnt out, burned, or burnt alive.”

The band is currently Bobby Mahoney (Guitar, Vocals), Andrew Saul (Guitar, Vocals), Jon Chang-Soon (Bass, Vocals), and James McIntosh (Drums). The foursome released a string of singles including ‘Should Have Called You Up (Last Night)’, ‘Nothing for Nothing’ and ‘Roaring Twenties (Live)’, as well as ‘Lay It On Me’ which is available everywhere now.

The band will be playing shows on the East Coast of the U.S. throughout April and May 2022.
