‘Featured Artist,’ Max Gomez, “Rule The World”

July 6th, 2012  |  by Nels Thoreson   |  Published in Songs of the Day

Today’s “Featured Artist and Song of the Day” showcases Taos, New Mexico’s own, Max Gomez, with his song, “Rule The World,” which is currently an unreleased song from the talented singer/songwriter.  Gomez got his start at an early age as he began working as a musician at age 15.  He played his own stuff, as well as country and blues staples, enjoying the likes of blues legends Robert Johnson and Big Bill Broonzy, while strumming the tunes of Johnny Cash, Townes Van Zandt and Kris Kristofferson.  Through his new record label, New West Records, Gomez said, “I’m influenced by the old stuff.  To me, that’s the best music.”

His song, “Rule The World,” is just a preview of what is to come, for Gomez is set to release his debut album, through New West Records, late this summer.  When talking about his writing process, Gomez said, “I try to be more of a disguised lyricist.  The songs I write are not real straightforward. You have to decode them. I like when the listener has to create their own story, rather than be told what’s happening.”  With this song as an indicator, music fans are in store for something special with his upcoming album.  The Troubadour’s Road will be sure to relay further details of the album when it becomes available.  Gomez is definitely one to continue to keep an eye out for as he takes the next step of his musical journey.

These words find their place in his song, “Rule The World,”

“I feel the time has come
It’s underneath my thumb
Maybe I don’t stand a chance
But then maybe I could
So with the devil I’ll dance
And knock on wood

If I could rule the world

I’d take the pain from your heart
And I would tear it apart
I would drown out the cries
with redemption song
I’d part the truth from the lies
And the right from the wrong

If I could rule the world

I’d be the king with the commoners crown
You’d be the queen and let your heart rein down

When the day done
When the day has passed
And a new light shines
A new light is cast

Give a run for your worth
And play the cards at hand
Fight the troubles at birth
And know where you stand
and remember

That if I could rule the world
You’d be my queen
The world would be free”
