New song: Ride the Wave

RIDE THE WAVE! Let's rock, everybody! This hard rock anthem is produced by the amazing Arden Snow, who not only arranged, mixed and mastered the song, he played guitars on it. This type of music is a new venture for Arden and myself and it was a heck of a lot of fun! I would like to thank my friends Robert Quigley and Scott Jordan for a few lyrical edits, and my wife, Lora, for the lyrics in the bridge.

Hey John once again wow thank you so much for the great review of "Gothic Blue" Greatly appreciated and much needed. haha I was very nervous about even putting it up for review as I'm afraid one of the philistines might trash it and that would break my heart...Thank so much my friend.

Enjoyed Far from home again and Just another Weekend!
Song comes alive when the warm bass comes in, and your vocalist has a happy go lucky sound! The whole song has a friendly carribean influence!
So simple and effective melody.
Nice one John!
5 stars no bother!

Ride the wave would be a great background song for a surfing movie!
They need songs like this fir big sporting events!
Drums at the beginning set the tone for a solid, hard hitting song!
Again, five stars well earned young man!
What are you onto now?

I have a song on video here called, "Sunset" where the Lyric has no chorus, but is a story in the mould of Pete Seger, Gordon Lightfoot and Leonard! (Not that I am in their league of course)
Look it up!
I have not released it as yet, but need it somewhere I can get a link to share it.
Again, enjoy!
Good to talk!

Wow, thank you, Scott! That's exactly what I'm hoping with this song...to make people shout and sing! Shaun (Arden Snow) did a knockout job with it. He really made it rock! He's a regular Todd Rundgren...does everything! I have an idea that we should do as The Rising Tide: an album called, "The Blue Wave," to excite people with some really ear catching songs.
