Songwriter Wayne Gathright was recently honored at the 2014 Austin Songwriters Symposium, with his song ‘Pass Around the Bomb’. The song was recognized as a ‘Publisher Pick’ and was played for the conference. The song is beginning to gather air play at independent radio stations around the country.

The song ‘Pass Around the Bomb’ is sung by vocalist Rick Petersen, who has a vocal styling reminiscent of Paul McCartney of the Beatles. The vocals work well with the song crafting of Gathright, a respected recording engineer, producer, and studio musician in Austin Texas. He was influenced early on by the production quality of the Beatles and producer George Martin. Lyrically, the song is about a group of school kids playing a dangerous game called ‘Pass Around the Bomb’. Each child in the song represents a different country, with of course, ‘Sammy Boy’ being Uncle Sam of the United States. Underlying the exterior of the song is a serious statement about the unfettered spread of nuclear weapons. welcomes other artists to submit bios and other material to be considered in the new ‘Featured Artist’ section of the website.
