Ricky “Escape Artist” – Listen

No, not that Ricky – this Ricky is Ricky Schmidt of San Diego, so if anything he’s a westender.    he released his new album ‘Palm Trees‘ a couple of weeks ago and ‘Escape Artist‘ is the first single from it.

It rocks out, but it’s really about finding the way to the “happy place“, in this case quite a loud “happy place“.  Ricky explains: “This song is about needing to step away from the world and allow yourself time away from everything. We all need breaks and especially during a time like the one we are currently all in.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
