Pittsburgh Veteran Musician Releases New Single From Year-Long Album Reveal

The track is the sixth release from veteran musician John Vento’s year-long “Brick By Brick” album reveal.

It doesn’t happen very often, but sometimes good songs just come together in short order. This track (“New Mexico Way”) from John Vento’s “Brick By Brick” project is an example of such magic. John had a concept for an upbeat rock-n-roll tune, and of course the perfect guy to create such a thing is David Granati. David and John were on the same wave length from the jump on “New Mexico Way”.

As Vento says, “David and I have created a ton of music together but we’ve never had something fall into place so quickly and organically. Everything David played just sounded and felt great, capturing the exact vibe that I wanted.”

Once producer, multi-instrumentalist, David Granati laid done the initial tracks, Vento pulled out some cool lyric notes from collaborator Matt Wohlfarth.

“New Mexico Way” is a song about leaving your problems behind in search of a new beginning. In this song Vento sings about a specific destination (New Mexico, USA), where he searches for an old friend in hopes of finding peace and tranquility.. “Where God comes to play.”

“New Mexico Way”

Gotta get back New Mexico Way
Nothing to do even less to say
Searching for a friend
So far away

Saddled up with my
Hopes and dreams
Blown away by some tumbleweeds
Hoping we can reconnect again
Some day

Gotta get back, gotta get back
New Mexico Way

Gonna’ live off the grid
Just like them old cowboys did
Leave this rat race behind

Up in the mountain air
Wild and free thinkin’ clear
This is where God Comes to play

Gotta get back, gotta get back
New Mexico Way

There’s a cowboy in my soul
Ridin’ hard breakin’ rules
Like rock-n-roll

I’ll see the sun rise at first light
Watch the moon shine late at night
As the stars, heal a broken heart

Gotta get back, gotta get back
New Mexico way
Gotta get back, gotta get back
New Mexico way

Gotta get back, gotta get back
New Mexico way
