From Escape Music:

Stranded is back with new album New Dawn this time with the brainchild, Producer and multi instrumentalists Lewis Nitikman, a talented musician from Winnipeg in Canada. Lewis moved to Vancouver when he was 14 and eventually started to produce numerous albums in Canada and was a staff writer for a number of major publishing companies.

Lewis was actually in the band “Stonebolt” and replaced John Webster on keyboards in 1981, he featured on their 4th album “Juvenile American Princess”. Speaking of Stonebolt the “New Dawn” recording features none other than Ray Roper on guitars and backing vocals. If that isn’t enough the singer is Troy Reid, a man with a well- known set of pipes that graced albums by Canadian favourites “Agent” and, later, “Stranded” first album “Long Way To Heaven”.

The tracks on “New Dawn” were actually penned some years ago by Lewis along with many co-writers which he met along the way.  One of these is the talented John Reilly (Boy on a dolphin) as well as Daryl Burgess and Corey Abrahms. The end tweaks and the mixing was carried out by Bill Buckingham and it must be said that he has done a great job.

New Dawn contains 11 tracks of West Coast / AOR that suits the voice of Troy Reid admirably and they are fine pieces of music that are so easy to listen to. These are all ideal for radio airplay, the opener “Not enough sorry” is testament to this as it is a wonderful tune with a fantastic keyboard sound and, of course, Troy’s unmistakable vocals.

An album to look forward to indeed and finally a few words from Lewis himself “These songs were written during a particularly tumultuous time in my life and I’m very pleased that they are getting this opportunity to be heard”.

Troy Reid: Lead Vocals (Agent)

    • This is what I was saying today - there's already been a handful in the last few months - didn't a handful of people get in a panic about the Cuban one? Was it Cuba? Who knows, who cares? The most blatantly obvious effect covid has had on people is that it's turned them into panic-stricken fucking morons. Is this how the rest of our lives look? We jump at every single shadow now that ever emerges from the dark? It's an absolutely pathetic way to "live."  Remember when a couple of years ago the world revolved around inspirational sayings like, "Don't let what can go wrong hold you back. Focus on what can go right." They used to word it a lot better than that, but the idea is the same. But the world's the opposite now. Flipped on it's head. A couple of cases of something we're all vaccinated against pop up somewhere and everyone spirals into a panic again? Even though the overwhelming odds are that this will be absolutely nothing again, first port of call is just full blown panic again? What a fucking world, ay.  And this is one of my greatest concerns about the whole stupid fucking thing. In NSW we are 95% vaccinated but every single case that is detected is treated as if we're in March 2020. Even with a 95% vaccination rate, how the virus is viewed and feared has not changed a single percent, in the government and media, since March 2020. And I think this is a problem. We're all vaccinated against it so why isn't it let go, like a flu or whatever else people are vaccinated against, so we can build some kind of resistance to it? Get this herd immunity thing under way? If we're not doing it now, what's the point of any of it? This is the preference, to live in stupid fear for the rest of our lives?  I don't know. I don't know anything about anything, but if we're all vaccinated and we just let the covid thing spread anywhere and everywhere, doesn't that just lessen the effect of any new strains and all this melodrama? But if we keep jumping at every single case like it's terminal cancer, how the fuck do we ever try to move on towards a life worth living?   
    • yep that's exactly what it says on the Web page. Probably takes them about a few hours of tinkering ... adding the odd name etc. not bad work for $7500 
    • It is funny and you are correct the woke police would not allow this behavior on TV or anywhere else any more. Of course who wouldn't want to lay hands on Kirstie Ally?  Those years weren't bad, but I am a bit older and these years are my favorite and equally as un PC.  
    • Well that was certainly a nice tune. Big fan of the production, that bass is rattling my fillings.
    • He has a soft spot for the cheesy promotional tracks.    
    • We didn't really get "cable" TV here until about the early 90's. I have great memories of SNL from that era. I've always followed it since then.  
    • Even if she did, I don't think I'd slide it in.
    • Does anybody remember when SNL was actually funny? I was in the 7th grade and I'd record it every week, Ive looked for a long time for many of the truly funny skits from this time, and now ive started to find some, bet they couldnt get away with this again.
