Through All These Years
Dimly lit by the lights of Las Vegas sixty miles away, lies a part of the desert floor known as 'The Heart Of The New Old West.' It is there you will find the emerging Singer/Songwriter/Guitarist....Rick Scanlan. After many years of writing and performing solo, and in duos and bands from rock genre's to country, Rick has honed his music to this NEW CULTIVATED STYLE OF COUNTRY. Finally, here comes his first CD with a collection of his own songs about life's journey, and he leaves you feeling like you were along for the ride. Listen to 'Backroads' (track 2) and you'll see 'he's a little bit country, and a little bit rock 'n' roll.' Listen to the title track (track 3) and you will feel his passion. Part sailor, part biker, with a dusting of desert cowboy, best describes this new talent who sounds a little bit like Gordon Lightfoot combined with Neil Diamond, and just a dash of Kenny Rogers. But it's easy to see the writing influences of the Eagles, Keith Whitley and Jimmy Buffett. This is not typical 'tear in your beer' Country...this is Country music for folks that come into town a bit more often.
