Buzz is Building For The Debut Album By The Rides


The Rides, the new all-star blues-rock group featuring legendary songwriter Stephen Stills, guitar slinger Kenny Wayne Shepherd and venerable Electric Flag keyboardist Barry Goldberg are building quite a buzz with radio airplay of their first single, “Don’t Want Lies” exploding in Los Angeles–currently Top 10 at tastemaker radio station KCSN (88.3) (as well as exciting listeners on Spotify). This is resulting in significant preorders at Amazon (currently # 5 on the blues preorder chart) and iTunes (purchasing links below).  In addition, the album’s momentum has been propelled by exclusive song streams debuting on, Wall Street Journal and Huffington Post with a 4th set to debut on on August 7th.

Says Kenny Wayne Shepherd, “Writing and recording with Stephen and Barry has been a most enjoyable experience for all of us. I believe the chemistry is obvious in our performances.”

The multi-generational outfit’s debut album, Can’t Get Enough, is set for CD, digital, and vinyl release August 27 on 429 Records. Featuring four co-written originals, a handful of covers, and a vintage, previously unrecorded Stills gem, Can’t Get Enough was inspired by–and is an homage to–the now-classic 1968 album Super Session, which featured Stills on guitar on one side, and the late Mike Bloomfield on the other (Bloomfield had founded Electric Flag with Goldberg, who also played on Super Session, as did Blood, Sweat & Tears keyboardist Al Kooper).  The Rides will embark on a world tour beginning in September (See dates below).

Cuts Like A Diamond features a myriad of songs that can only be categorized as “classic Little River Band.” The first single, “The Lost And The Lonely,” released in July 2013, is a poignant ode to the sacrifice made by the military men and women of the world.  Other highlights include the funky, free-wheelin’ groove of “You Dream I’ll Drive,” and “Love Is,” the album’s closer.

Fronted by 34 year-LRB veteran Wayne Nelson, (lead vocals, bass), Little River Band now features an energized line up of: Richard Herring and Greg Hind on guitars and vocals; keyboardist/ vocalist Chris Marion; and drummer Ryan Ricks.

The band was formed in 1975 in Melbourne, Australia with several members that had previously played in successful Aussie bands. They soon became the darlings of American radio programmers, and from 1976 through the early 90s, the hits that just kept coming. Among them: “It’s a Long Way There,” “Help Is on Its Way,” “Happy Anniversary,” “Reminiscing,” “Lady,” Lonesome Loser,” “Cool Change,” “The Night Owls,” and others. In the end, the group scored 13 Top 30 Hits and has sold over 30 million records.

Cuts Like A Diamond and the group’s new alliance with Frontiers Records, marks a turning point in the history of a group whose hits remained a staple on radio stations around the world. Recalls Nelson: “Frontiers approached us 2012 and wanted a CD of new material from Little River Band. They wanted a west coast 1980s sound, just like what the band used to do. At the same time, we also knew we had to embrace the new LRB and the more contemporary sound we had been moving into. In the end, I think we accomplished both. We are very excited. From start to finish, we know this is a quality project.

The Little River Band is currently on tour. For more information on venues, dates and times, please visit
