Anyone even slightly familiar with Ralph Puma work knows there is certainly more to him than meets the eye. The music he has created within various band projects is in strong contrast with his main focus on the upcoming single, “So It Goes…” (ft. John Black & Tim Robbins), which officially drops on 2/10/23. As guitarist and vocalist, Ralph has played loud, intense and melodic punk, providing soaring vocals amidst driving rhythms and frenetic atmospheres.
On “So It Goes…” (ft. John Black & Tim Robbins), Ralph Puma showcases his versatility as a solo artist, opting for a stripped-back and almost acoustic sound. The track is introspective and deeply personal, with lyrics that are both genuine and poetic.

Ralph’s collaboration with John Black and Tim Robbins adds depth and texture to the track, making it an instant classic in the vein of the great singer-songwriters of our time.
So what exactly is it that makes “So It Goes…” (ft. John Black & Tim Robbins) such an outstanding effort? Well, it’s simple. The vocals, the strummed guitar and the vivid, beautiful and often hard-hitting words weaved in-between.
Ralph Puma doesn’t need much else to make this track shine, although there are a few more subtle instrumental embellishments, and an explosive middle section, where the intensity reaches an apex. Perhaps the most important feature of this song, however, is Ralph’s lyrics, heart-wrenchingly honest, starkly powerful and filled with vivid imagery and moving words.
“So It Goes…” (ft. John Black & Tim Robbins) is a track that packs an emotional punch, with a storyline that is sure to pluck at your heartstrings and leave you thinking and feeling. Ralph Puma’s evocative lyrics, paired with the stripped-back sound, create a powerful and moving listening experience.
Having said all that, Ralph’s greatest instrument has always been his voice, and this new single does nothing to change that.
