Sea of Clouds
'Sea of Clouds is a satisfying mix of soul and innovation.' - Buzzine 'In a time when music can come across as contrived and forced, the serene, genuine quality and exquisite execution of Sea of Clouds provides loyal listeners with Martin Rivas' best album to date. Tracks alternate between simple acoustic guitar riffs, soft piano melodies, and the explosive percussions of long-time friend and drummer Craig Meyer, bringing warmth, telling stories, and breathing life into the songs, while still maintaining the classic rock and reminiscent element that Rivas fans have grown to admire.' - NYC Artists Scene 'All great art has a sense of duality, and Martin Rivas' music is a perfect portrayal of that. Within a sad song there is a glimmer of optimism and trancendence, hidden beneath joyful, carefree notes lies a sense of struggle and triumph. On the surface the songs are all uplifting and sweet to one's ears, but if one digs deeper, they will find many more layers to each story. Martin Rivas' music takes the listener on a journey that feels new and familiar, a most enjoyable ride.' - Artist/Sculptor Cindy Sibilsky.
