Kameron Marlowe’s Sophomore Album ‘Keepin’ The Lights On’, Out Now


Available now: The deeply personal 16-track album tackles universally relatable themes like determination and perseverance while highlighting the difficulties and anxieties that come with the grind of chasing your dreams

NASHVILLE, TN. / LONDON, U.K. – (May 31, 2024) – Hailed as “one of our greatest living Country singers” (MusicRow), Kameron Marlowe returns with further evidence of this praise in his  sophomore album Keepin’ The Lights On, available everywhere today (May 31). The 16-track collection cements Marlowe as a true force in today’s Country music landscape as a triple-threat singer, songwriter and performer blazing his own path, marked by his distinctively soulful and “formidable” (Billboard) vocals. The album comes just days after his “steamy, well-produced twist of a ballad” (Country Central) “Strangers” hit Country radio airwaves, nabbing 36 first-week stations, a career high for Marlowe.

“I am so proud of this album and how natural it felt piecing it all together,” shares Marlowe. “Getting more honest and sharing things I battle with was something I had to really find courage to feel comfortable doing, but seeing the way my fans relate to my music made it all worthwhile. ‘Keepin’ The Lights On’ is an ode to my dad’s commitment to providing for my family and the life lessons he taught along the way.”

Produced by Dann Huff with writing credits from Kendell Marvel, Dallas Wilson, Mitchell Tenpenny, Wyatt McCubbin and more, Keepin’ The Lights On invites listeners deep into Marlowe’s world – from childhood to modern day – offering a transparent showcase of growth, maturity and most importantly, a lifetime of fulfilling promises. Focused on heart-gripping lyrics that explore life’s struggles, the collectiondives deep into the human experience, touching on themes of mental health, battling feelings of inadequacy and the relentless pursuit of success. Showcasing his versatility as an artist, Marlowe offers a blend of moments drenched in honky-tonk rhythm and melody laced with a dusty aura of solid Country gold.


The album kicks off with the 90s infused honky-tonk banger “911” before his rip-roaring vocals hit the gas in “Nothin’ Slowing Us Down.” “Never Really Know” touches on the reality of addiction and the hidden struggles people face, while “I Can Run,” accompanied by an all-new music video, is a celebration of rebuilding one’s sense of self.  In “Quit You,” he makes an explicit connection between the song that started it all, “Giving You Up,” and his current state of mind. The heart-wrenching “Strangers” with Ella Langley stands tall as the album’s lead single, while the waltz-infused rhythm of “High Hopes” feels the sting, yet the bright side of love lost. To Marlowe, if his second album is a statement of purpose, the culmination comes with the title track, “Keepin’ The Lights On.” He appreciatively revisits the unconditional sacrifices that his parents made during his childhood, as he promises himself to push past the doubts and fears that accompany chasing one’s dream. The track list plays like a perfect setlist from start to finish as Marlowe wears his heart on his sleeve, revealing vulnerability in a way he’s never done before.

The ACM New Male Artist of the Year nominee recently wrapped his Strangers Tour with special guest Tucker Wetmore and will soon take his new album to some of the country’s hottest fairs and festivals. With nearly one billion career streams and recognition from MusicRow, the Grand OleOpry, CMT, Amazon, Pandora, and more, Marlowe’s career continues to heat up like never before. Keep up with Marlowe on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and TikTok and visit KameronMarlowe.com for tour dates and more information.

Raised in Kannapolis, N.C, Marlowe’s musical journey began in church choirs and high school bands. After leaving college to support his family, he gained traction online and moved to Music City. His self-written viral hit “Giving You Up,” born from personal heartache, catapulted him into the spotlight before striking a deal with Sony Music Nashville.

He’s known for delivering high impact performances, with all the energy of a true rock show.

And now, his evolution unfolds further on his 16-track output, Keepin’ The Lights On, out now, while his red-hot single, “Strangers” with Ella Langley spins at Country radio. The scope and maturity of the album establish him as a true force in today’s Country music—a triple-threat singer, songwriter, and performer blazing his own path, marked by his distinctively soulful and resonant vocals. It’s a journey that delves deep into the human experience, touching on themes of mental health, battling feelings of inadequacy and the relentless pursuit of success. Marlowe lays it all on the line, revealing vulnerability in a way he’s never done before. Rooted in unapologetic risk, fueled by vulnerability, and thoughtfully presented in concept like a perfect setlist from start to finish, Marlowe achieves connection through a ride of uniqueness that swerves the normal comfort zone. His sophomore album, developed from over 200 shows in the last two years, is the culmination of Marlowe’s steadfast dedication, and fans will soon see first-hand his tireless commitment to his craft, not only on the road, but also in the studio. “If I can continue to be this personal in my writing, I feel like it will connect to people in a deeper way,” he shares. “That’s all I want to do. And when you go deeper with yourself, you can connect deeper with other people.”
