The folk pop scene is something new and exciting to the 21st Century.
It opens arms to bands like 50 Mile Ride, originally from Reading, Pennsylvania, USA.
A fresh faced band making their way through the music industry, dominated by pop hits.
It is strange to believe that a band so young are influenced by some of the great singer song-writers, like Eric Clapton and John Lennon.
The band are currently number two in the Reverbnation chart for folk music, creating their own music and sound.
Original lyrics and raw sounds, they’re a band hoping to expand and stretch themselves, to ensure they make an impact.
There are 11 tracks available to stream on their Facebook and Reverbnation page.
It’s fresh sounding music, that lifts you up.
The acoustic guitar is refreshing, but the vocals are whiny.
Certain songs are a once in a life time listen, but then something changes and all of a sudden you’re hitting repeat on the other four or five songs.
50 Mile Ride aren’t a band who are going to storm straight through to the charts, but their music is enjoyable.
It’s a group of lads loving what they do, and it is expressed in the way they play and create their music.
It’s original and that is what many other bands need to take from this.
Be original, and create something different!
With radio appearances and an increasing number of followers on their social networking pages, the band are gradually building a fan base for themselves.
