New Music | Dead Professional - Don't Be Cruel


[V]irginian singer-songwriter John Harouff is a hard working musician. He’s lent his talent to the likes of The Union of a Man and Woman and was a member of Man Forever, along with being one half of the duo known as The Cinnamon Band. He’s now out on his own under the fantastic moniker Dead Professional and has a brand new single, “Don’t Be Cruel,” that we very much wanted to share with you fine people. The comparisons to Nick Lowe (aka the Jesus of Cool) are pretty spot on, and deservedly so. Harouff pulls off that slick swagger of a rock n’ roller scorned by a woman but too damn cool to care.

“Don’t Be Cruel” is an instantly likeable, sidewalk-strutting tune meant for playing nice and loud. I think it’s a safe bet Dead Professional will be on many summertime playlists this year.
