Hot Rize

Hot Rize is a bluegrass band that rose to prominence in the early 1980s. Established in 1978, the founding members were Mike Scap (guitar), Tim O'Brien on mandolin and fiddle, Pete Wernick on banjo and Charles Sawtelle on bass. Mike Scap was soon replaced by Nick Forster (electric bass), allowing Charles Sawtelle to switch to acoustic guitar. The band played together and issued 6 studio albums until they disbanded in 1990. From 1991-98 the band played several reunion dates each year. Following the death in 1999 of Charles Sawtelle, Hot Rize re-grouped in 2002, adding Bryan Sutton to play the guitar. When touring, Hot Rize often performs as a Western swing band called Red Knuckles and the Trailblazers. more »


 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

Bending blades, tall grass blowing in the breeze 
Shining in the sun 
Lonely days I keep going to the place 
We went when we were young 

All I saw was flowers growing 
All I heard the three words that you spoke 
A blinded heart never knowing that the dream 
Would die when I awoke 

In those days our lives were simple 
I was yours and you were mine 
I was wrong to try and hold you tight 
Tie you to my side 


In my heart I long for those days 
Though your love has passed me by 
Though the hard times beat down on me still 
I hold your view up high 



Lonely days I keep going to the place 
We went when we were young
