Album: Ride the One
Release Date: May 20, 2016
Toronto, ON based blues artist, Paul Reddick has released his debut album with Stony Plain Records, Ride the One on May 20, 2016. The album is produced by Colin Cripps and recorded at Union Sound Company in Toronto.
Ride the One features 11 original tracks and includes a backing band that features a special guest; Steve Marriner of MonkeyJunk on guitar, keyboards and backing vocals.
The album has the perfect mixture of Blues and Roots, and would please any listener that enjoys these genres. The second track, “Celebrate” spoke to me, as the lyrics are quite inspirational, which is something I usually enjoy. With lyrics such as, “Celebrate yourself, yourself, celebrate your voice, your voice, celebrate your luck, your luck, celebrate and rejoice”. I found myself singing along to this anthem like track.
“Living in another World” is the most upbeat song on the album, and that in itself pulled me in, the beat will get your feet tapping and the lyrics will have you singing along in no time.
