HUGH MOFFATT 'Only Along For The Ride' CD
Drumfire are authorised by Hugh Moffatt to be the sole UK seller of his latest CD album 'Only Along For The Ride'
12 original songs, Along for the Ride, the new CD includes songs from every phase of Moffatt’s writing career. Simply recorded with Moffatt’s acoustic rhythm guitar and often adding Wade McCurdy’s bass and harmonies, and sometimes with violin, viola, mandolin, or acoustic guitar leads, this release again demonstrates Moffatt’s status as one of the most heartfelt, musical, and original of the Nashville song artists. From the folky “Juniper Canyon”, to the Southern rock influenced “Rock Bottom”, to the jazz ballad, “Cloudy”, and the anthem title song, Only Along for the Ride ranges widely in style and theme while maintaining a unifying rootsy acoustic sound. This collection will thoroughly satisfy Moffatt’s longtime fans and is a worthy introduction for new audiences.
This is the first album released by Moffatt since his 2006 Christian concept album, Songs from the Back of the Church, and is his tenth album release overall starting with Loving You in 1987. In addition, Moffatt has had dozens of his songs recorded by major artists in pop, country, bluegrass, gospel, and traditional music around the world. He is also librettist for four operas.
