Rock Era Magazine Review
I WONDER by Rich Chambers
The single resurrects vintage rock ‘n’ roll soul to the present and modernises it along with the country vibes, resulting in fast-tempo, stunning harmonies that force you to dance. I find “I Wonder” can be called “the easy abstain” as it only has a few lines. Simple music composition consists of only some basic chords, yet the result is amazing! It was fun to make with the five friends—Rich Chambers, Todd Foxcroft, Jeff Warren, Sean Gemmill, and Jim Gemmill—and it’s undoubtedly fun to listen to, and that means something, right?
There isn’t a single thing I don’t like about it. The vocals are energetic and fresh, and each sound element, whether it’s the guitar hooks, drum beats, or harmonica rhythms, is in the right place. Even the lyrics, as I previously stated, I do not find them to be simply words strung together; rather, they have triggered moments of wonder about some decisions that have been made. It’s sonically pleasing, and the music video was a wonderful treat for the eyes, with such a magnificent view, and getting to enjoy both music and a nature view fulfils a meaning to me.

Rich Chambers States that ‘High School Can’t Last Forever’ in his Timeless New Single
Imagine Green Day met up with Buddy Holly and had a jam, and you’ll be on the same lines as Rich Chambers. Residing in an ambitious indie-rock attire with elements of garage rock thrown in for extra flavor, “High School Can’t Last Forever” is bathed with a timeless soundscape that feels up to the times yet nostalgic over yesteryear.
Sharing his thoughts on the release, Rich Chambers explains: “High school often seems to represent that moment in our lives where anything is possible. It is our launching pad to life, so to speak. From that point, we all start to make decisions (or don’t make decisions) that ultimately start each of us off down our own unique life path. “High School Can’t Last Forever” is a song that tackles this defining moment in our lives.
“It begs the notion that those who follow dreams or take chances to go after something often live without regret, whereas, those who are never willing to take a chance or squash their dreams (for whatever reason) often live with regret and find themselves looking back to life’s launching pad (high school), wishing they could launch again. It does this to the backbeat of an under three minute, timeless, rock ‘n’ roll soundtrack.”
The track flows as a wave of optimism, bursting with colour, nostalgic 60’s riffs, and a goldenly catchy tune.
Chambers uses his recent release as a flag-post for a season of glistening tunes and light-heartedness. Sizzling in his retro sound, Chambers style brings 60’s surf-rock into the modern era, something we need now more than ever.
Being no stranger to electric tunes, Chambers has been writing and performing music that ripples of the same golden energy.
As soon as the track hits the sound waves, we are pulled into the sonic soundscape of a beach, effortless and vibrant – similar to the likings of The Beach Boys.
“Summer Looks So Good On You’ is a feel-good song that celebrates the proverbial promises of love, hope and happiness that a beautiful summer day often seems to provide us!” Chambers’ explains.
The track came about whilst Chambers was driving home during a heatwave. In the midst of the traffic and humidity, the artists became transcended to the wide Californian coastal roads, his imagination fuelled by Lisa Loeb’s track, Summer.
After his sudden burst of gumption, Chambers rushed home and wrote the entire song in 30 minutes; “this is not the norm for me as most of my songs take a lot longer, but when I am as inspired as I was that day, the song kind of came out”.
Summer Looks So Good On You is a vibrantly magnetic tune, layered in an electric guitar riff and retro harmonies. Chambers’ work deserves to be shared for it’s imaginative, time-travelling drift to a warmer time.

"Sorry Isn't Good Enough 2nd Press Release: June 8, 2021
YMX Review of "Sorry Isn't Good Enough"
A Song So Many Of Us Have Lived From Rich Chambers
Chambers follows up the success of the “socially charged rocker” ‘I’m So Tired’ with ‘Sorry Isn’t Good Enough’, a track steeped in influences from Rock, Country, Dylan, troubadour-esque Folk and Adult Contemporary sensibilities reminiscent of Tom Petty or Springsteen.
In discussing the song Chambers writes “I really wanted to tap into that extreme remorse that comes with a love…sabotaged because of our own actions”. It’s very interesting that Chambers should pick such a universal subject matter but what is more interesting is his decision to try to tackle in a way that is both convention, trope and genre breaking as he decided to immerse an ambiguous story, within the lyrical content, as a sort of ‘fill in the blanks’ for the listener to lay their own interpretation upon the catchy, relatable, genre crossing melodies and musical arrangements.
Rich Chambers is yet another example of the vast swathes of independent talent emerging amongst the new, undiscovered plains and promised lands that the age of information has wrought upon our societies, standing on the shoulders of five album releases. But if Chambers continues to release music like “Sorry Isn’t Good Enough”, he won’t remain independent for long.
Rich Chambers' socially conscious rocker, "I'm So Tired," has been gaining momentum on both the airwaves and the web. The single is breaking through on the US college radio circuit as well as making headway on independent radio throughout Europe and North America. It is also receiving stellar reviews on music sites and blogs around the globe. The true strength of this three-minute rocker is its powerful use of a relatable, infectious melody and rhythm that hammers home a message of social unrest and fatigue. "On January 6th, 2021, I couldn't believe I was witnessing an angry mob storming Capitol Hill in Washington, DC," says Chambers. "I was appalled and found myself absolutely fed up and tired with all the social unrest I was seeing. I knew then and there that I had to say something." This was the genesis of "I'm So Tired," and its message, coupled with a riveting video, is resonating. Born and raised in Vancouver, Canada, Chambers picked up the guitar at age 10 and wrote his first song at the age of 14. With multiple influences that range from Buddy Holly, the Beatles, Johnny Cash, to Green Day, and countless others, Chambers has released five full albums and achieved significant success worldwide with his music, including his standout 2020 'Santa's Rockin' Band' Christmas album. His latest single "I'm So Tired" (and its accompanying video) is an intelligently compelling commentary of today's social unrest. Who says Rock n' Roll can't be meaningful? Rich Chambers certainly doesn't!
Rich Chambers unveils his highly relatable single, "I'm So Tired"
February 21, 2021
After this past year of pure insanity, we think Rich Chambers’ latest rocking track sums it up best, “I’m So Tired”. Do yourselves a favor and read along with us as we break down our thoughts on the song, in addition to a background on the artist as well.
Following the Capital Hill Riots on January 6th of this year, Rich Chambers decided enough was enough and made the decision to create this overly relatable track, “I’m So Tired”. Taking influences from some of the greats such as Buddy Holly, The Beatles, Green Day, and more, Chambers has added his own bits of signature sound within the mix, and the end result was fantastic.
Following up his successful Christmas album, Santa’s Rockin Band, the release of this latest single actually came a bit earlier than expected. Considering the situations we find ourselves in though, Chambers felt the urge to release it after just writing and recording it days prior. A music video followed it to help amplify the message, and the rest was history. We’re thankful he did because sometimes talking about it doesn’t help, but a powerful statement song can really get the point across.
At just three total minutes in runtime, we’re confident that the point he’s trying to make will come across quite nicely. While he could’ve gone another route and delivered a 10+ minute ballad detailing each moment from the day, we feel that a short and succinct track like this that is very much in your face was the right choice for the overall tone.
In sound, it absolutely slays within its instrumentation and impressiveness. Having listened to Santa’s Rockin Band, directly after our multiple run throughs of “I’m So Tired”, it became clear fairly quickly that Chambers is a man of many talents. Taking away the context of the song for just a moment and treating it as an instrumental, it’s just as impressive. It features all the elements of what we like in our class rock sounding music, includes his commanding vocals, and ultimately gets the point across within its rugged sound.
Truly, there isn’t really too much else to say at this point, minus the fact that we highly urge and recommend you to give not only this single a listen, but the rest of his work a spin as well. It takes serious amounts of triumph to try to boil down the atrocities happening in our world to a single song, however as mentioned we’re thrilled that the way this song was crafted seems to have been the best way to do so. Whatever you do though, turn it loud, and enjoy!
