RIDGE is a collection of 'HEAVY' rock songs that I had been playing about with for a few months. The title, 'RIDGE" and the lyric content of the song, 'UP ON THE RIDGE', is based on a short story I wrote while at University many years ago. The other 3 are my usual observations of 21st Century society and it's penchant for running closer to inevitable self-destruction. Which is a thing I thought we had left behind in the last century! This EP is also the first release in many years that there is another party involved. Okay, maybe not on a musical front, but definitely on the creative one. The background to the CD insert and online picture is a painting which was gratiously gifted to me by the artist, Di Perry. She posted a photo of it on FaceBook which I commented on, telling her how much I liked it. 3 days later it was on my studio wall. I was originally looking at using a pic I took of a fiery sunset over a corrie up in the north of Scotland, but I opted for the painting instead.
'RIDGE 2' is underway! I have written a few sets of lyrics and started on the basic tracks. Looking at maybe a release around early spring next year - 2020.
