It's only rock 'n roll, but we like it! This is Wild Ride's 6th album. It's a mixture of upbeat rock 'n roll, urban style rock, a Polish rock ballad, a traditional Māori song (played rock 'n roll style), as well as a couple of instrumentals.
This is Wild Ride's 6th album, and is the first one to incorporate songs in the traditional languages of the husband and wife duo. Marek is from Poland, singing lead on a Polish rock cover song, and Kerri is from New Zealand, singing a traditional Māori song, rock 'n roll style, (with a little help from some Māori friends - Ngā Ānahera Māori). Along with some kicking rock 'n roll tunes, and a couple of instrumentals, it's a well-rounded album showing their diversity. They hope to spread harmony around the world, and open up acceptance of other cultures.
Wild Ride is the self-titled album of Wild Ride. It's their 5th album, and features "Can't Wait Anymore" influenced by their tour with Richie Ramone (of The Ramones), and their self-titled song, "Wild Ride."
Wild Ride is an award winning rock 'n roll power duo, based in Los Angeles, California. Their music has been compared to Velvet Underground, Joan Jett, and The Ramones, however, they really have their own unique sound. Their self-titled album "Wild Ride" is their fifth album. They had seven entries in the 58th Grammy's, and have submitted their latest "Wild Ride" album to the 59th Grammy's. Their music is influenced by rock 'n roll with a twist of punk, and they have a positive message. Wild Ride has played over 300 shows and have toured the U.S. and Europe.

This album was entered into the 58th Grammy's, for Best Rock Album, and Song of the Year, (Kitchen Rocker). It also won Best Hard Rock album, Dec. 2015 at The Akademia Music Awards. It's upbeat, driving music, with a rock 'n roll vibe.
This album features a cover song, "I'm Crying," by The Animals, and five original Wild Ride tunes, European Invasion, Squeaky Wheel, Kitchen Rocker, Angels, and One Direction. It's fun and upbeat, typical Wild Ride rock 'n roll style.
Wild Ride play rock 'n roll with a mixture of roots rock. So expect to hear some rockin' tracks, some folk rock, excellent guitar riffs by Marek Lisiak, drums by Kerri Berry, & a little harmonica. A great mix of rock songs and easy listening tunes.
This is Wild Ride's first full-length album. (They have two previous EP's, "No Exit", and "Tribute to Johnny Perez"). From the first track, 1962, (of which Kerri Berry dreamed the lyrics & melody), to Something Special, (inspired by a friend who was having a "nothing special" get together), Wild Ride takes you on a musical journey, full of twists & turns. From Cherry Bomb, (cover of The Runaways song), to Fire & Rain, (James Taylor cover), you will be on a wild ride, with different tempo's and musical styles, yet the whole album blends together with a totally cool vibe. It's a rock 'n roll album, with some folk-rock mixed in, amazing lead guitar, and the vocal harmonies of Marek Lisiak & Kerri Berry. This album also features some previously released singles; California (re-mixed), Running Man (re-recorded) and Lighting up the Moon, (re-mixed), which is the song inspired by their visits to Dale, who they visited every week for three months while he was in the hospital, to sing to him to cheer him up :-).... Wild Ride appreciates all the love and support from their family, friends & fans all around the world!
Personal note from Kerri Berry (Wild Ride drummer): I feel like Wild Ride music is like this; (if you can imagine this); one night The Rolling Stones went out on the town and bumped into ABBA and they all went and jammed together, then Jimi Hendrix and Bob Dylan stopped by, The Bee Gees came in at the last minute, and it all got recorded!
A tribute to our friend, Johnny Perez, drummer of Sir Douglas Quintet. This includes our recording of his original song, "The Breakfast Song."
Wild Ride's original music has a flavor of good old rock and roll, so it blends well with the genre of 60's & 70's rock. This 5-song EP is a tribute to our late friend, Johnny Perez, drummer of Sir Douglas Quintet. It features an original song written by Johnny Perez & Brittany "BB" Scott, "The Breakfast Song." It was written in recent years, before he passed away in Sept. 2012. We met him at his studio, Topanga Skyline Studio, in December, 2010, and he asked us if we'd like to record some of his original music. We chose "The Breakfast Song." Also on the EP is Wild Ride's original song, Looking out My Window, and two Sir Douglas Quintet covers; Mendocino and She's About A Mover. Last, but by no means least, Wild Ride covers Chuck Berry's "Johnny B. Goode."
