about - Southbound75, Tampa, FL
In a rare meeting backstage at Cincinnati's Music Hall, music legend, Prince asked singer/songwriter, Mark Lorenzo, “Do you believe the cream will rise to the top?...” After responding that he did, Prince continued, “...Then you have nothing to worry about.”
In 2018 Mark Lorenzo and Southbound75 signed with Godog Management with a plan to release new music later this year. Godog was founded by Warner Brothers Records Alumni to create an all encompassing music company that supports it's artists with radio promotion and publicity. "Not Ready to Say I'm Sorry Yet" is the first release from the joint venture.
The story took a big jump when Radio Promotion legend, Bill Scull heard his song, "Little Breakdown" at an ASCAP demo review session. Scull, who has worked in the industry for years with Clive Davis, singled him out, signed Mark to his EO label, and sent him out to record his label's first CD.
Scull said, “The thing I learned from Clive is that the song is king…and Lorenzo has those songs.”
His talent also caught the attention of publisher Jan Seedman (who discovered Nickelback for Road Runner Records), “Mark knows how to come up with a melody... the songs just don't get tired - ever.”
The band is now in the studio with Bill McDermott (BILLBOARD #1 PRODUCER HOT SINGLES SALES as well as artists on Curb Records, Broken Bow and Warner Bros.) putting the finishing touches on their new CD. Then, Mark and the guys are looking forward to getting back to what they do best – playing live and meeting people. The band is constantly touring the midwest, east coast and their current home state of Florida. All of the musicians in Southbound75 are seasoned professionals who put on a high-energy live show.
Mark's songs have been used on TV shows, sports programming, DVDs, Cartoons and more such as; “ESPN College Football;” “Shark” (CBS); “90210” (CW); “Threshold” (CBS); “Girlfriends” (CW) and “3lbs” on (CBS).
The band is endorsed by many sponsors including, Red Monkey Hats and Accessories, Bosphorus Cymbals & American Crew – "Official Supplier to Men"
