Some people daydream about their perfect musical line-up… legendary Stephen Stills, guitarist Kenny Wayne Shepherd and keyboard extraordinaire Barry Goldberg turned their blues-rock dream band into reality! That’s the Rides, a super group with a mile long resume, from Rock n Roll Hall of Fame inductions to Grammy wins, whose 2013 debut, Can’t Get Enough, landed them in the Top 40 on the Billboard 200 and garnered them a nomination for Best Rock Blues Album at the 2014 Blues Music Awards.
On May 8th, they’ll release their sophomore album, Pierced Arrow,on 429 Records (which Elmore got the behind-the-scenes scoop on). In support of the new release, the Rides are heading out on tour again, starting early May and ending in June.
