ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
-----------------------------------------------------------

*** Including the International Number 1 Radio Hit "Made in Mexico and other radio hits

-----------------------------------------------------------


‘Out of the Blue’, an album produced in Nashville by Gary Carter, is a collection of 11 songs all co-written by Marty himself. Songs such as Mexican vacation and Made in Mexico reveal the artist‘s Latin music influence while his island upbringing was the inspiration behind Paceville.
The title track along with the ballads Baby, you’ve changed my life and A lonely star uncover Marty’s more romantic side with Call Colorado being the most laid-back song on the album, a deep contrast from the track I’m available, which is a real country rocker with a touch of humor. The beauty of freedom is celebrated in So good to be free while the joy of redemption is delivered in the spiritual song Blinded.
The track Teasin’ kind of woman completes this album with its raw honky-tonk sound.
This is indeed a unique collection of songs that Marty is so excited to share with you all.


Musicians featured on this album are as follows:

Guitars: Danny Parks (George Jones, Brooks & Dunn, Toby Keith)
Bass: Eric Normand (Toby Keith)
Keyboards: Kevin Adams (Lee Ann Womack)
Pedal Steel & Dobro: Gary Carter (Randy Travis, Faith Hill)
Fiddle: Hoot Hester (Hank Williams Jr., Alabama, Conway Twitty)

Biography

Being born in a musical family, singer-songwriter Marty Rivers was drawn into music from a very early age by listening attentively to his grandfather playing the guitar and immersing himself in his father’s record collection. At the age of 13, young Marty took part in a singing contest in his native island of Malta and won with the Conway Twitty classic ‘It’s only make Believe’ despite being the only non-adult participant. It was around this time that Marty formed his first band and started performing in various bars and venues all over. It was the beginning of a long road that has nonetheless brought him success and helped him develop into the artist he is today.
Although his passion for country music has been within him since childhood, he has ventured into other musical genres which developed in him a sense of versatility that is so evident in his music today, both as a songwriter and also as a performer. The first collection of original songs was released in Marty’s debut self-titled album ‘Marty Rivers’ with two of its tracks charting high on various European Country Music charts.
In 2008, Marty released the album ‘Out of the Blue’, produced in Nashville by Gary Carter who worked with world known artists such as Randy Travis and Faith Hill. This was another set of songs all written by Marty himself along with Joe Spiteri, songs that reflect the various musical influences that left such a blueprint on Marty’s music. Various tracks from the album were released as radio singles, all of them charting high on various charts including the song ‘Made in Mexico’ which went to number 1 on J. Ramgatie Country music International Top 40, the spiritual ‘Blinded’ an American Gospel top 10 hit and ‘Call Colorado’, voted as a top song during the 2008 Music Row Songwriters Festival in Nashville.

In November 2010, the self-penned gospel song ‘The Lord is coming soon’, originally recorded on Marty’s first album, reached the number 1 spot on the God’s Country International Music charts and number 3 on the American Gospel Music charts.That same year, Marty teamed up again with Joe and started working on some new material for a new album which was then recorded in Nashville with a group of top class musicians, and like his previous album was produced by Gary Carter. ‘Midnight Sky’ the latest offering from Marty is a set of 12 songs that once again show the versatility in Marty’s music. The first radio single, ‘Run angel Run’, from this new album did very well as it already hit the number 8 spot on the Hotdisc European Country Top 40. With a new collection of songs that he really believes in, Marty is looking forward to much more success in the near future.

Simpy Wonderful!
I must say that I love every single track on this CD. There's something about Marty that makes him different from the rest. His music literally grows on you! Great singer and a really gifted songwriter. Should be up there with the majors.

Out of the Blue and into my heart!!!!
I came across Marty a while back on My Space. The first track I listened to in his player was "I'm Available" and I was instantly blown away over a super rocking song. I wanted Marty and the label to quickly release the CD so I could hear the rest. Over the last several months I purchased CD's by artists that I have come to enjoy but I must say that Marty's "Out of the Blue" CD quickly became one of my favorites. I've listened to the CD several times and I know I will never tire of it. Each song is so picturesque and would make for some awesome movie soundtracks. Like Gay, I too am reminded of Marty Robbins when I listen to Marty Rivers but I also sense a little Conway Twitty and Roy Orbison, yet he's uniquely himself. Every song on this CD is great and Blinded is so beautiful, it brought a tear to my eye. All I know is the beautiful island Republic of Malta has blessed the world with a wonderful talented artist and an ever sweet human being!!
