Check out Lana Lane. Female vocalist with an excellent range. Very Progressive yet Melodic. Sometimes compared to Heart. Glass Hammer from Tennesse offers an excellent Prog/ AOR sound which goes back to the days of Classic Kansas and Styx-very Pompish. 3 excellent CD's, and I have heard the demos for the upcoming disc and they are fantastic. Flower Kings from Sweden play in a similar style, with a vocalist that sounds very much like John Wetton, although thier sound is a bit more "Prog" than Asia.

Last but not least is the Incredible Rocket Scientists which is actually Lana Lane's back up band. Four excellent releases. The 1st was compared to Journey quite a bit at the time of it's release. They have since gone more Progressive but still retain a melodic line. The new CD "Oblivion Days" features several Melodic guest stars including Tony Franklin (The Firm/ Blue Murder), and Greg Ellis from Shark Island. Excellent stuff!

Eric
