JONNY BOY DROPS THE WAVE
6/28/24

Nightly frontman Jonny Capeci, aka Jonny Boy, has dropped his debut solo EP, THE WAVE.

The seven-track project, which includes buzzing singles "angel face" and "cry for me," showcases Jonny's evolution as a solo artist.

The EP is highlighted by a visualizer for the intro track "LIFE WILL BE BEAUTIFUL IF YOU LET IT," providing fans with a glimpse into Jonny's storytelling prowess and setting the tone for the entire project.

Mixed by Grammy-nominated mixer Jeff Braun, THE WAVE promises a captivating auditory experience.

Jonny Boy has not only been busy with Nightly, who recently concluded a headline tour across the U.S. and are now focusing on their forthcoming album, but also as a sought-after songwriter. His credits include collaborations with Kane Brown—including “The One (Pero No Como Yo)” with Carin LeónValley, 24K Golden and G Herbo, with his recent placement of Brown's "Country Classic" on the Twisters soundtrack.

Managed by Neon Coast's Nikki Boon and Martha Earls, and represented by UTA's Matthew Morgan and Emily LaRose, Jonny Boy continues to push artistic boundaries with THE WAVE, solidifying his status as a dynamic force. Stream THE WAVE here and peep the vid below.

Can't Hardly Wait The Musical is directed by Kate Sullivan and written by Sinead Daly with arrangements and orchestrations by Jesse Vargas.

“The teen rom-com narrative of Can’t Hardly Wait is relatable, fun, and heart-warming," Primary Wave CCO Natalia Nastaskin said. "We are thrilled to work with Kate, Sinead, Jesse and the Lively McCabe team and bring our vast catalog of hits to power the soundtrack of this timeless story."

The project will be overseen by Michael Barra and Allison Bressi on behalf of Lively McCabe Entertainment and Nastaskin and Ramon Villa from Primary Wave. Production plans and the remainder of the creative team will be announced at a later date. Find more information here.
