Marc Berger is a published songwriter and recording artist who has performed at Austin's South by Southwest music festival and been named an Emerging Artist at the Kerrville Folk Festival. He has opened shows for Bob Dylan and other national acts. His antinuclear anthem "The Last One" has been quoted in the NY Times, featured on the CBS Evening News and performed by Richie Havens at rallies throughout Europe, Great Britain and the United States. Marc's new concept album, RIDE, was inspired by his longstanding love affair with the American West - it's landscape and mythology. John Ford had done it in film, Frederick Remington in painting and sculpture, A.B. Guthrie in fiction. RIDE now presents ten cinematic recordings aimed at capturing the vastness and romance of the West, while exploring it's deep roots in the American psyche and relevance to the modern world. From the haunting message and beat of "Twister", to the soul shaking experience of taming a wild horse in "Take it on the Chin," to the sexy, mind blowing, middle-of-nowhere encounter of 'Time Waits For No Man', RIDE takes you on a sensuous, exhilarating Western musical odyssey.
