"Heart on a Trip" is a new single by Tony "Shoshyn" Gilmore. It took us quite a while for us to release this song because the ﬁrst demo was recorded with the late Frank Alstin who wrote many hits for TSOP including "Who can I run to when I need Love" for The Jones Girls and later covered by Xscape. Frank had left me a message in the box of the 2" master tape stating that this song is deﬁnitely a hit. But the note was not discovered until a year after his death. 15 years later the song was sent to entertainment manager Andrea Jackson who responded very quickly and said this song is perfect for Tony Gilmore.
A native of Philadelphia “Shoshyn” (pronounced Show Shine) grew up immersed in the rich power of music. Tony became a member of the group "KOOL AND THE GANG" Singing lead and background vocals alongside James “JT “Taylor for over ten years.
Already a formidable presence in the music industry, Shoshyn has written songs with George Benson, superstar Joe and Clive Davis. “Heart on a Trip” is the song that was tailored just for “Shoshyn”, where he celebrates how love can take your emotions for a front seat rollercoaster ride with your arms up in the air while screaming for satisfaction.
