Rising Canadian talent Rich Chambers injects a whole load of 60s nostalgia and soft rock influences into his newest retrospective single, ‘High School Can’t Last Forever’. Having grown up with a rich and cultured musical background, Chambers takes his inspiration from icons ranging from Buddy Holly to Greenday and everything else in between.
For this new offering, Rich Chambers shows off his impressive strumming skills on this hearty, full-bodied anthem, delivering powerful rock n’ roll vocals and endearing lyrics which immediately cast your mind back to a simpler time. Based on the complexities of youth and the decisions we make which shape the rest of our futures, ‘High School Can’t Last Forever’ is a modern coming-of-age single that sits nicely amongst previously released hits from Rich Chambers’ discography.
Speaking on the meaning behind the single, Rich Chambers shares:
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.”
Following on the heels of his successful 2020 Christmas album, Chambers has been consistently and methodically releasing new original music throughout 2021. His socially conscious rocker, “I’m So Tired,” came out in January, accompanied by a hard-hitting video brimming with thought provoking social commentary (the video has been getting lots of film festival accolades). This was followed in the spring with his mid-tempo, love gone wrong, “Sorry Isn’t Good Enough.” His summertime release is “Summer Looks So Good On You,” a Beach Boys meets Katrina and the Waves fun and sing-alongable offering. Keep an eye and an ear out for Rich Chambers’ next releases.
