NASHVILLE— Howling Music’s David Grow has co-written and produced a new single and music video featuring

My Love Screams

, which Grow also co-directed, has quickly become a massive viral hit, attracting nearly 2 million views on YouTube in ten days.

Grow, whose company Howling Music produces music for commercials, has achieved a rarity in the music world by balancing success in the advertising and recording industries. His credits in the former realm include Nike, BMW, Chevy, Mini Cooper and Kia. As a songwriter and record producer, Grow’s credits include projects for Blind Boys of Alabama, Jim Brickman, Michael W. Smith and Josh Thompson. He recently also composed the score for the current documentary Free Throw, directed by Wong, Doody, Crandall, Weiner creative Court Crandall.

My Love Screams

marks a reunion for Grow and Giraud, as last year, Grow produced Giraud on Jim Brickman’s 2010 radio hit

. Giraud achieved national recognition when he placed fifth in the eighth season of

Idol

and was a favorite of judges Paula Abdul, Randy Jackson and Simon Cowell. He has since appeared on an

Idol

“Results” show and completed a national tour. When Grow was selected to produce the debut album for Lindsey Sky, he thought of Giraud as a natural choice to sing a duet with the newcomer.

Balancing the worlds of advertising and artist development has always been a goal of Howling Music, according to Grow. “We're passionate about making great music,” he says. “It's very fun to be able to do that across multiple mediums.”

The song will make its radio debut on January 16th.
