about

Dallas guitarist Chris Manning returns with the new melodic rock single "The Sixth Sun" featuring vocalist extraordinaire Chandler Mogel (Outloud, Punky Meadows, Pareidolia). Chris' versatile guitar style balances technique and melody reminiscent of a wide variety of his guitar influences including rock heavy weights Jimi Hendrix, King's X, Deep Purple, Jimmy Page, Joe Satriani, Neal Schon, and George Lynch.

"The Sixth Sun" combines Manning's signature guitar style with the talents of New York City vocalist Chandler Mogel, Dallas musicians Tim Beamguard (acoustic guitar) and Mike Price (bass), and UK session pro drummer Max Saidi. MelodicRock.com calls vocalist Chandler Mogel (Outloud, Punky Meadows, Pareidolia) "the future of rock" and his incredible vocal performance makes this is a stand-out track in the melodic hard rock genre.

lyrics

LYRICS:
Headed for the stars above as I light on my journey
Heaven awaits me now to take me as its own
Free as the wind though now it's so far below me
The void that surrounds me is also in my soul

To the Sixth Sun, I'm searching all around me
To the Sixth Sun, nowhere to call my home

Searching for my home to find in the space that's around me
Open to a place I find that I can call my own
Throughout the darkest times I continued yearning
Of what awaits me like a king to his thone

To the Sixth Sun, I'm searching all around me
To the Sixth Sun, nowhere to call my home
To the Sixth Sun, I haven't yet found me
To the Sixth Sun, I remain to roam

Gotta find my way
Don't know where I'll roam
Gotta find my way... home

Been through the stars below as I logged on my journey
The heavens were a void until I found you in my world
You were where I needed you when I was truly searching
You filled that space and now we both are finally home

To the Sixth Sun, I've been searching all around me
To the Sixth Sun, somewhere to call my own
To the Sixth Sun, the moment that I found you
To the Sixth Sun, I finally found my home
