Stefano Viana is an Italian guitarist, songwriter and producer who has already caused a stir with his first album “Viana” (2017) which received very positive reviews. Following his passion with enthusiasm Stefano contacted singer and producer Bryan Cole (Giant, Steel City, solo artist) and started to work on new material. Alessandro Del Vecchio was the vocalist on the first outing but this time Bryan Cole is at the mike stand. The music was recorded in a studio like in the “good old days” and this has made a great impact on the end result as the musicians have bonded and made a richer sound. 
 
This new album features some great musicians such as Terry Brock and Francesco Marras and also boasts the talents of great American guitar player John Roth from Giant, Winger and Starship. The 10 tracks we have here are all strong songs, there are no fillers here.. just great melodic hard rock played with a passion and flair. This is one album that is going to be talked out in the coming weeks.

 

Keep the flame of your passions alive and be “Forever Free”.

Biography:
Amazed by guitar hero Randy Rhoads, Stefano Viana takes up the guitar at age of 16, when the glorious 80's Hard Rock was at its highest splendor. Influenced by artists just like Whitesnake, Bon Jovi, Def Leppard, Ozzy Osbourne and Y&T, Stefano started recording his first songs in 1996, fascinated by recordings' process techniques. He self-produced two unreleased Cds and, during the works on the second one, he met Alessandro Del Vecchio, asking him to get inolved in the production of his first official solo album. Works started back in 2009: Del Vecchio wrote the lyrics, handled also the vocal duties; the other session musicians were chosen among the best ones of the Italian scene: Anna Portalupi on bass, Alessandro Mori on drums, Gabriele Gozzi on backing vocals and Pasquale India on keyboards. His lifelong aspiration seems to become reality, rewarding many years of hard work and sacrifices in the underground scene; however, just like in the worst of nightmares, serious personal problems tore apart Stefano's dream, forcing him to give absolute priority to his family issues. He kept his album in standby until April 2016 when, regained a stable serenity, he tasked once again Alessandro Del Vecchio, meanwhile become a long-time reliable friend, with resuming the working process on the album. Listening together to the recorded material, they decided to hire an additional guitarist and opting for the talented Francesco Marras. Stefano's sharp songwriting, Alessandro's astounding skills as arranger and producer, and session players' amazing performances in the recording studio gave life to ten captivating melodic rock tracks, composing an album that is going to be definitely appreciated by all the long-time fans of this kind of music. Viana is the moniker chosen both for the project and the album title, that will be released worldwide by Street Symphonies Records on March 24th, 2017; in Japan, the release is scheduled in April under AnderStein Music. Artwork and graphics are provided by renowned artist Antonella Astori / Aeglos Art (Room Experience, Raintimes, Charming Grace).
