Biography

In January 2006, songwriting partners, Andreas Stavropoulos and Rob Farley conceptualized a limitless rock band known as Six Hour Ride. Named for a transcontinental flight between the North American coasts, the band mixes styles varying from raw inner city sounds to unique and emotional melodies. Backed by a tremendously talented pocket, Kyle Nail (drummer, percussion) and Chris McCarthy (bass, cello), Six Hour Ride brings a traditional and real feeling to alternative rock n’ roll, something that has been missing in the current music industry.

Six Hour Ride have showcased, throughout the west coast, that they are remarkably talented musicians, songwriters, and businessmen (they look and act the part). Currently, the group has self released their debut album, 'Paint' and are touring the west coast self sufficiently, building a prominent fan base along the way. On June 16, 2007 they have been booked for AHL Productions/KROQ'S Socal Rock Revolution featuring acts such as Lit, Unwritten Law and Zebrahead. The festival will be followed by stops in Seattle and Oregon.

Six Hour Ride managed to book themselves and maintain a professional connection with the Whisky A Go Go (ref. Celina Denkins, National Talent Buyer/Senior Booking Agent - (310) 652-4202) and AHL Productions (714) 600-4767, among others within just a few months of forming.

‘Paint’ has proved itself to be an album that is pleasing to the ear and eclectic throughout it’s spin. The songs touch on real subjects and emotions that hold a presence in all of our lives. It is available on iTunes and can be purchased online at cdbaby.com and through the band’s website.

Presently, Six Hour Ride is touring the west coast and searching for the right managment groups to take them to a level where everyone can hear their music. It is only a matter of time before this alternative rock n’ roll band makes its move to take the music industry out of their current slump. The charasmatic line up make the band humble, understandable and enjoyable.

They can be best represented online through their website and their Myspace profile.

Lyrics

A Time In December

Written By: Six Hour Ride

They call him one bipolar trainwreck of a man
Silent & cerebral with a trigger-happy hand
He wants to leave this city
A city they call L.A.
He wants to go where paint trucks crash to make a beautiful mistake
Where everybody's thinking that they know the songs
& they don't know the words but they hum along
He wants to go rediscover potential
...want to surrender

I remember a time in December
When all the paint trucks used to run together
...want to surrender

Call him schizophrenic Jesus dancing in the town parade
He's preaching on a soapbox to join the masquerade
Well everybody follows & they sing along
No one knows each other, singing different songs
He wants to go rediscover potential
Want to surrender...

I remember a time in December
When all the paint trucks used to run together
...I want to surrender
to a time in December
Paint trucks was all he knew, no show

There's too much pressure
On knowing just how to perform
There's so much anger
He wants to surrender the show

I remember a time in December
When all the paint trucks used to run together
...I want to surrender
to a time in December
Paint trucks was all he knew

I remember a time in December
When all the paint trucks used to run together
...I want to surrender
to a time in December
Paint trucks was all he knew, no show

Bad Habit

Written By: Six Hour Ride

I got a bad habit of talking too much
Of saying what I mean but saying too much
Maybe it's me & I should hang up the phone tonight
I got a bad habit of not being mean sometimes

Maybe I wear my heart out on my sleeve
When I should hold it deep inside of me
Maybe it's the first fight
Baby it's the last time
If I don't feel right I feel like
I got a bad habit

I got a bad habit of judging everyone
Thinking that I'm right & telling everyone
& I burn the candle at both ends to learn
I got a bad habit of looking when my head turns

Maybe I wear my heart out on my sleeve
When I should hold it deep inside of me
Maybe it's the first fight
Baby it's the last time
If I don't feel right I feel like
I got a bad habit

I feel so bad

Maybe I wear my heart out on my sleeve
When I should hold it deep inside of me
Maybe it's the first fight
Baby it's the last time
If I don't feel right I feel like
I got a bad habit

Love

Written By: Six Hour Ride

Single mother with four young sons
Spends her whole life teaching them
How to treat a woman
Goes out to an empty bar looking for the one

Another kid in California
Falls in love, she's leaving town
But how can he pass it up?
She's someone special

Love... What do I do to get it right?
Love... What do I gotta do?

A lonely woman finally tells her man
I don't think I could ever see you again
& I miss you so much
Why can't you get it right?

A young boy's father shows up one day
He asked his son, "What did your mother say?"
"Have you had enough?"
"Can we make it right?"
What do I do to get it right?

Love... What do I do to get it right?
Love... What do I gotta do?

& every time you step outside
You're showing all the holes inside
& all the things you cannot hide
When all you need is love
& every time you're feeling down
Don't you keep quiet now stay loud
In everything you do be proud
When all you need is love

Love... What do I do to get it right?
Love... What do I gotta do?
