Strider's 6th solo 'FRESH TRACKS' album takes his
West Coast/Austin/Nashville influences to amazing new heights of singer-songwriter brilliance. A true story of an American immigrant. Scandinavia bound. Songs of love, hope and disillusionment, heartache and joy. Helped by Sweden's rising star producer, Amir Aly, the album's breakout hit single "Apple Pie Song" is a slice of pure pop perfection. Indeed, every one of these 'Fresh Tracks' is a sonic delight."
