RIP ERIK SCOTT (Signal)

Artist: 

RIP Erik Scott (Signal)
 
Another fantastic bloke and a real talent. 
It’s been a rough few weeks for melodic rock fans and this just makes it harder. 
I enjoyed all interactions with Erik over the years and my huge regret of my time in this business was coming all too close to getting a Signal reunion underway several years back. 
Very saddened by this news.
 
RIP Erik

STATION Debut New Song 'A Matter Of Time'; Album Out Nov 1

 
New York-based melodic rock band Station will independently release its third studio album, Stained Glass, on Station Music on Nov. 1.
The unsigned band — comprising singer Patrick Kearney, guitarist/keyboardist Chris Lane, bassist Emi Asta and drummer Tony Baptist — saw its sophomore album, More Than the Moon, land on Billboard’s Heatseekers Albums chart and has opened for the likes of Pat Benatar, Poison’s Bret Michaels, Motley Crue’s Vince Neil and Stryper.
Lead single “A Matter of Time” deals with romanticizing goals in life, such as meeting the right person at the right time. Musically, it has a “bluesy rock aesthetic,” according to Kearney. And as the first track on the album, he sees it as a gateway song for listeners who may not be familiar with Station.
“It’s a great kickoff point because it’s very middle of the road in terms of our sound,” he says. “Anyone listening to it for the first time will be like, ‘Okay, I get it — this is a rock band that’s rockin’.”
As for the song’s meaning, he adds, “It’s about not being able to recognize authenticity because you have had a fantasy for so long. In the video [for the song], we personified the fantasy as this really attractive girl, something that you chased after, but you romanticized it. So when reality kicks in, it’s kind of like, ‘Wait a minute, I can’t tell if this is real or not.’ ”

KING OF HEARTS Sign MelodicRock Records For New Album Nov 22

Friday, November 22, 2019
Categories: 
 
MelodicRock Records is thrilled to announce the first signing in the next phase of the label’s history.
 
On November 22, MRR will bring the brand-new self-titled KING OF HEARTS album to fans of exquisitely produced and performed melodic rock.
 
MRR will handle the CD release for the world except for North & South America and Japan. The band will handle those territories via their own distribution.
 
The band recently released the first single from the all-new studio record, a masterpiece of mature AOR with performances only studio veterans of this calibre could deliver.
 
The first single, “Don’t Wait,” is a poignant reminder to reach out to those we love today for tomorrow might be too late.
 
 
For this album, KING OF HEARTS is:
 
Lead Vocalist TOMMY FUNDERBURK
Founding Member and Lead Guitarist BRUCE GAITSCH
Producer/Engineer/Keyboardist CJ VANSTON
Bassist JOHN PATITUCCI
Drummer KEITH CARLOCK
 
 
“We were so excited about this new music and can’t wait to share it with everyone!” says King Of Hearts founding member Tommy Funderburk.  The group’s lead vocalist has good reason to be elated. King Of Hearts has recorded their fabulous new album at Addiction Sound Studios in Nashville and Tree House Studios in LA with a band comprised of a who’s who of writers and players and one of the most recorded voices in music.
 
“The sound of the record is “modern classic rock.”  Funderburk explains “If you mix the sound of the Eagles, Don Henley, Bruce Hornsby with Toto and Def Leppard with a splash of Keith Emerson and Coldplay, what would that sound like?” It sounds awesome! We started referring to it as Modern Classic Rock because of all the different elements and textures to the music we were creating.”
 
According to producer/engineer/keyboardist, CJ VANSTON, King Of Hearts might be the most famous band you’ve never heard. But, while you might not know them by name, you’ve heard them on thousands of hit recordings for some of the world’s most successful artists.
 
In addition to recording with Toto, John Mayer, James Taylor, Diana Ross, Larry Carlton and many more, drummer, KEITH CARLOCK, has for the past 15 years been the driving force in the studio and on the road for Steely Dan. Sting calls Keith ”one of the greatest drummers in the world.”
 
Multi Grammy winner, bassist, JOHN PATITUCCI, has played on countless albums and toured with artists such as B. B. King, Bonnie Raitt, Chick Corea, Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, George Benson, Dizzy Gillespie, Wynton Marsalis, and Sting. In 1986, John was voted by his peers as the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences MVP on Acoustic Bass and most recently won his third Grammy as member of the legendary Wayne Shorter Quartet.
 
Composer, producer, arranger, keyboardist, CJ VANSTON has worked with artists such as Prince, Toto, Def Leppard, Celine Dion, Justin Timberlake, Bob Seger and countless others. In addition to scoring the Christopher Guest’s films Waiting For Guffman, Best In Show, Almost Heroes and For Your Consideration, CJ has performed as musical director and keyboardist for Joe Cocker, Tina Turner, Tears For Fears and the legendary Spinal Tap along with recently produced Toto’s highly acclaimed album, Toto XIV.
 
Founding member and lead guitarist, BRUCE GAITSCH has written with and for numerous platinum artists including Chicago, the number one songs “La Isla Bonita” (Madonna) and “It Don’t Mean Nothin” and “Right Here Waiting For You” (Richard Marx) and recorded with artists such as Roger Waters, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Chicago, Richard Marx, Celine Dion and many more.
 
TOMMY FUNDERBURK established his recording career as lead vocalist in the critically acclaimed group, Airplay with David Foster that featured the original recording of the classic number one song, “After The Love Is Gone.” Tommy’s vocals are featured on hundreds of recordings with artists as diverse as Boston, Jimmy Page, Celine Dion, Whitesnake, Rod Stewart, David Foster, Toto, Bon Jovi, Heart, Spinal Tap, Elton John, Cheap Trick, Pat Benatar, Yes, Bad Company, REO Speed Wagon, Motley Crue, Spinal Tap and many others.
 
Some of today’s most respected studio musicians and legendary artists have adding their talents to the album including Timothy B Schmit (Eagles), Peter Cetera (Chicago), Phil Collen (Def Leppard), Chris Rodriguez (Kenny Loggins, Michael McDonald, Vince Gill), and Janey Clewer (Sarah Brightman, Julio Iglesias, George Benson).

New Signings To Frontiers Records

Artist: 
Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the signing of Brazil’s LANDFALL. Hailing from Curitiba, the band features former Auras singer Gui Oliver - a true dead ringer for the legendary Steve Perry - Landfall's sound can be described as falling between classic melodic rock a là Journey with some slightly heavier influences, such as classic era Dokken, White Lion, and Extreme.
 
“I’m really glad to be back with Frontiers with a new band and new songs in a new perspective. I believe this is my best album so far. I was really impressed when I met the band for the first time. They are truly amazing, gifted and very prepared to do this with me,” says Gui Oliver.
 
Landfall was originally started by drummer Felipe Souzza and guitarist Marcelo Gelbcke, who are childhood friends and have been playing together since they were about 15 years old. Some years later, bassist Thiago Forbeci joined up with them, adding new musical input and influences and the band decided to go in a new direction. They began writing their songs and creating their own music repertoire to work off of and it was during this period that they recorded a few albums together and performed several concerts around Brazil, including opening for acts like Glenn Hughes and Mike Vescera.
 
Joining forces together, Gui, Felipe, Marcelo and Thiago created Landfall (formerly known as W.I.L.D.), a blend of hard rock, melodic rock, and AOR.

Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the signing of one of the hottest new AOR bands to come out of the underground European scene, STARDUST. Signed after some fans put the band to the attention of label staff during one of the Frontiers Rock Festivals, Stardust are preparing to release their label debut in 2020.
 
“Our first EP got really good feedback from the fans, not only from Hungary, but from around the world,” says singer Adam Stewart. “I expect that our debut album, that is currently underway, will be enjoyed by a much bigger amount of melodic rock fans thanks to our new cooperation with Frontiers. Stardust plays AOR/Melodic Rock with catchy melodies and lyrics,so Frontiers is truly a perfect home for us. We look forward to releasing our album and planning more tours, shows, and videos to be shared with the fans!"
 
Founded by two friends, Adam Stewart (lead vocals) and Tim Keeley (drums) in 2015, the band is rounded out by Facey (lead guitar and vocals), Dave Legrand (keyboard), and Ben Martin (bass and vocals). The group's style is an amalgam of the classic melodic hard rock and AOR genres, with hooky choruses, beautiful keyboards and vocal harmonies, and loud guitars in the style of their favorite mid-80's bands, bringing to life this well beloved music in the 21st century.
 
The band independently released the “Shine" EP, from which this single and video for the track 'Shout it Out!' was lifted. For a taste of what's in store from Stardust, check this out: https://youtu.be/sqxiVQ9r-dw
