Ponder Rock originally started out as an idea, thought of by Rick Wright, to create a collection of original songs, that featured and showcased local Singers\Musicians in the Cumming, GA area. Shortly after recording some original guitar tracks, Roger Perkins, a long time aquaintance of Rick's, joined the endeavour, bringing his Bass Guitar prowess to the music. The name Ponder Rock stems from a place atop of a mountain in Morganton, NC, that Rick used to travel to, several times a year, from Atlanta, GA, with his college roommate and fellow musician Phil Shirley. Much Pickin and Jamming was enjoyed on that mountain.
Both Rick Wright and Roger Perkins grew up playing in local cover bands and have recorded some original music throughout the years. Deciding to follow their passion to write and create original music, this project has sparked a new creative inspiration to write new music.
