Silver Cord / Press

“Silver Cord, “Cover the Sun” Singer/songwriter and rhythm guitarist Silver Cord—a.k.a. Raylan Wellman—launches EP “The Struggle” with acoustic rocker “Cover the Sun,” a dissonant ballyhoo of easy, breezy acoustic guitar strumming set against a teeth-gritting surge of electric guitars and Silver Cord’s rough & tumble sandpaper vocals. He pleads, “This is illusion, a veil of confusion/Cover the sun… wash me away.” Silver Cord has experimented with a kaleidoscope of musical styles—including rock, metal, alt rock, blues and grunge—and here he serves up a morsel of each, coalescing into a potent mix of every man’s inner search for inner unity and truth.”
