Oscar Urbina set to release new project entitled ‘Molly Pitcher’
South Florida artist Oscar Urbina announced the name and release date of his new mixtape on Wednesday. The project, Molly Pitcher, will be the first of a two-part series which dives deep into the mind, heart, and soul of Urbina. The mixtape is set to be released on July 12.
Urbina explained the concept for the upcoming project in the press release statement below.
PRESS RELEASE STATEMENT:
“As Oscar Urbina was studying for his Florida State exam for Social Science, he came across the story of a woman named “Mary Ludwig”. Some to this day wonder if she was a real historical figure or just a folk tale. Her story takes place during the American Revolution, during the battle of Monmouth.
During the battle the weather conditions were extreme, soldiers fought in the battlefield while it was brutally hot causing heat exhaustion. Mary took the initiative to bring pitchers of water from a spring for the soldiers so they can hydrate in the middle of the fight. She was deemed a hero for such a small act – bringing water!
And that’s when it hit Oscar Urbina, to be a hero you don’t need to do the epic heroic acts that you see in the movies by your favorite Marvel or DC superheroes. But to be a hero you need to do the little things in life that leave an impacting memory in others, and in this project series, Oscar Urbina hopes to do this with his transparency. So for her small heroic acts “Mary Ludwig” was given a nickname that will now embody the heart and name of Oscar Urbina’s project series, Molly Pitcher.”
