Free Viewing- Music Clip "Adelaide" Produced by Duncan Toombs
"I'm continually fascinated by the story of those I meet, and the bigger story of this great country of ours. I like to share my passion through my words & music; light a spark, drop them in right at the scene. They're the ones I write my songs for."
- Doug McIntyre BRAND NEW ALBUM "Riding Free" OUT NOW !!!
[Produced by Golden Guitar Producer of the Year- Matt Fell]
DOUG'S COMMENTS ON THE ALBUM & THE TITLE TRACK This great country of ours never fails to provide me with songs. "Riding Free" was really born a few years ago in Tamworth during yarns with a mate, who loves to get away after working at his demanding job as a paramedic, and head out west on his red Ducati. He savours the landscape, the solitude, and rolling out the swag under the moon on the banks of the Darling. But he always looks forward to returning home to his wife. He's travelled around the world, but nothing beats this wide, free land that is home. PRODUCER MATT FELLand I had a great time working together to achieve a feel of those wide open spaces. As I wrote each of the "newies" I found it hard to decide on a name for the album. Then out of the blue came the song "Riding Free". I thought it said it all. I just love the magic that happens when writing! I hope listeners feel like they're sitting on that motor bike, out on a lonely highway and riding free! - Doug
