Freedom To Glide

Freedom To Glide

F2g is the coming together of musicians Pete Riley and Andy Nixon. Both Pete and Andy have for many years played together in the Pink Floyd tribute band Dark Side of the Wall, an award winning Midlands based band that has toured the UK from Whitehaven to the Isle of Wight – ‘That’s how we both met.’

Unbeknown to them at that time, on the 13th March 2010 the seed was sown for what would become Freedom To Glide.

The tribute band were playing a concert in Manchester and after the band had sound checked Pete was chatting to Andy about a song ‘Hypnotized’ that he was recording. The song needed some acoustic guitar so he asked Andy if he’d be interested in taking a listen and maybe laying down the guitar. A week later, the track came back not only with guitar, but drums, bass and backing vocals! ‘It was just awesome. The song had now taken a totally new direction. Andy’s input had changed everything, musically we just simply clicked – Thinking back, it was one of those eureka moments.’

Soon after ‘Hypnotized’, Pete sent Andy a keyboard intro with all sorts of military radio chatter and sound effects and the simple statement – ‘it’s a song about WW1 soldiers falling like rain on the battlefield, fancy a crack at this one too?’ The reply came back ‘Roger that…’
