NOTES
"The Glass River" follows "Light Years Away" as the second EP in the trilogy that encompasses the new music Paul Maged has been writing and recording since his successful 2014 LP "Diamonds & Demons". Maged calls The Glass River "harder edged, with a sense of urgency and more socially conscious" than it's predecessor. The Glass River is produced by Multi-Platinum Producer Sean Gill of The Passengerz and is set for release on March 28th, 2018. The Glass River will be available on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon and more. Maged intends to highlight three singles from the album, "Gunz 4 Hire", "Corporate Hell" and "Choices" which will all be accompanied by videos.

As the bridge between the first and last EP, Maged intends to up the ante on The Glass River as he jumps back into writing more socially conscious songs. The opening track and first single 'Gunz 4 Hire' is an angry rocker written and recorded after the Orlando mass shooting in 2016. After the Parkland shooting in 2018 while updating the video for the song Maged said "The subsequent shootings in Las Vegas, Sutherland Springs and Parkland have unfortunately made this song remain very relevant." 'Corporate Hell' follows 'Gunz 4 Hire' and is a no holds barred, scathing and first hand account of working in Corporate America that sarcastically exposes it's soulless underbelly. "For The Sea" is a mournful ballad about our rising oceans caused by man made climate change. Other songs include 'Choices', which has Maged looking in the rear view mirror at a past relationship with both affection, longing and guilt. The title track 'The Glass River' was written while Maged was sailing along the Bass River in Dennis, Cape Cod. It is a song about seeing truths in our reflection in the water. The middle section of the song is called 'The Ballad of Alan and Jane', an ode to Maged's parents.
