about

" Archived Ballads," is another Southern Raiders Band album that is loaded with meaningful ballads and hopefully have songs that you can relate to. Our producer shelved SRB tunes through the years and Ironically, when these tune were put together as an album format they fit together perfectly and that was discovered incidentally…Cool. This album contains love ballads all the way to a couple of songs that has a 50’s, “Big Band,” sound that came from a fan who once asked if we could play any of that type music. I thought, from a southern rock perspective, that was an interesting request so we wrote a couple due to that request, and yes it even includes the famous, ”Bop-She-Wop,” type harmonies and we start this album out with the tune... Since we liked the outcome of that one song we also wrote another blues type song in that realm of style called, “Ain't good enough,” and is also on this album. Turned out to be really cool songs to play live. Then concerning serious issues, we also have a tune we wrote about our planet and some of the problems we are having that everyone should really be concerned about, the song, ”Turn this thing around,” touches base with some of this most important issue. This is just a few of the songs you will find on this interesting album of Southern Raider Band music. As you will hear this album is very versatile and we hope you enjoy the our, “Archived Ballads.” So we hope if you decide to add this album to your music collection that you’ll know you have actual collected some of the, literal, SRB archived music. Take a listen and if you like it buy we would certainly appreciate it and if you are interested in learning more about the Southern Raiders Band let us know we more than welcome you don’t shy away say HI.
