Biography

A well known Portland daily newspaper columnist once described Ric Seaberg this way: "In a kinder and gentler world, he would have been a rock star."

Ric was front man and lead vocalist for a band that was part of the unique Northwest Rock scene in late 60s & early 70s (that laid the foundation for what became grunge). The Morning Reign played in most large cities and small towns across the Northwest and opened for acts ranging from The Doors to The Guess Who, Buddy Miles to Peter and Gordon, Box Tops to Cream, the Animals to Spencer Davis Group. Morning
Reign recorded at Capitol Records in Los Angeles.

Ric's music is versatile ranging from blues to country ballads, biting humor to love songs, reggae to flat out rock 'n roll. There are few who can match his wordsmithing talents (for example, he once rhymed maharaj with garage in a song), his lyrics are distinctive and memorable.

Ric's songs "Didn't Say I Love You Right" and "We Talk About Cars" both appear on NPR's "Car Talk" compilation cds, available at www.cartalk.com.

"The Noise Pollution's Gone", from Ric's CD "Santa Monica", is the official song of Noise Free America. Learn more at www.noisefree.org

Ric lives in Portland with his wife and step-son. All his recordings feature the guitar genius of Portland axe-god Tim Ellis.

Hear Me!

Hear Me
Copyright Ric Seaberg 2006

Please remove your ear buds......take off your stocking cap
Put your hair in a pony tail...I wanna tell you where I’m at
Remember when we were sweethearts
Things just aren’t the same
Upon further reflection
You don’t come when I call your name so

Hear Me! Sayin’ I love you baby!
Hear Me! Callin’ you out to play!
Hear Me! Cuz if you don’t hear me,
You won’t believe I want you to stay,so

Hear Me! Down at the intersection
Hear Me! Through all the noise in town
Hear Me! Cuz if you don’t hear me,
You won’t believe I want you around
You gotta hear me!

I will kiss you in the rain
Make you laugh and make your bed
Hook your old computer
Up to the internet!

Maybe you can’t hear me.....with all that stuff in your head
Economics, war and crime....on the front of The New York Times but

Hear Me! Sayin’ I love you baby!
Hear Me! Callin’ you out to play!
Hear Me! Cuz if you don’t hear me,
You won’t believe I want you to stay,so

Hear Me! When you are bungee jumpin’
Hear Me! Get off your cell phone then
Hear Me! Cuz if you can hear me,
Then you will know I want you again

Hear Me! Over the sounds of silence
Hear Me! Over the din of life
Hear Me! cheerin’ you on cuz you still belong with me tonight
You gotta hear me!
