News: DEEP DARK RIVER (Vesperia's Morgan Rider) Premieres "The Golden Bough" via PureGrainAudio



Best known for his vocals and bass playing in Canada's much loved Vesperia, Morgan Rider is proud to reveal is his first single "The Golden Bough" viaPureGrainAudio.com from his upcoming debut self-titled album for his new side project DEEP DARK RIVER. The solo endeavour combines all the humble qualities of blues, folk and classical into a well-balanced, artfully crafted musical reflection on life, hope and old-fashioned storytelling while delivering a uniquely fresh and uplifting listening experience. 

Rider comments: 

"The song has been the most organic and charged song I've ever written. It talks about the very real issues we are facing in 2018 in the wake of yet another avoidable tragedy.

Echoing a sentiment of a contemporary of mine: John Lennon. The man preached universal love and unity for people of all walks of life, only to have his own life taken one December night by a man armed with a firearm. How many more people have to lose their lives, how many families will have to put their loved ones into the ground before this crushing reality begins to even create a whisper of change? How long will it be before we realize that we are alone in an incalculably vast darkness; that we only have each other and the other sentient creatures on this planet for warmth and company. 

The Golden Bough is about stripping away all the petty differences we visualize over our appearances, geographies and beliefs. To brace ourselves for the storm, we need to stand beside each other and remove the crowns we have fashioned for ourselves and for one another; to see what we truly are."


"The Golden Bough" is available for purchase and stream on BandcampiTunes, and Spotify.

Show Dates:
March 9 - Whitby, ON - Melanie Pringles 
March 11 - Bowmanville, ON - Manantler Craft Brewery
