In a dark world, there are few things that unite us and raise our spirits more than music. Not many people understand this as fully as Myke Gray and the guitar guru/songwriter/producer offers us his new track, ‘I Get Up’, just when we need it the most.[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nf1oF-T9NM4&w=560&h=315]
The former Skin, Jagged Edge, Red White & Blues and UFO maestro has shaken things up and his constantly fertile imagination has given birth to this fantastically good time rock ‘n’ roll tune that is bound to make you grin from ear to ear.
Accompanied by a hugely enjoyable video in which Gray plays all the band members, the track sees him unleashing his inner Glam Rocker and is like a mash up of the very best of The Sweet and Motley Crue.
It’s utterly irresistible, a massively addictive and brilliant bit of hard rock candy. Whilst the guitarwork is as sparkling as ever, it’s his vocals that really stand out, perfectly suited to the material and a true treat to hear him come to the fore after letting some of the world class singers he’s worked with take the limelight at the mic.
A man who has crafted some of the UKs best rock songs in the past thirty years, his songwriting is always impeccable and hopefully this project gets the support to give it real legs. The best party in town crammed into three and a half perfect minutes, your invitation awaits.
