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!
