US singer KELLY KEELING Returns With 'Mind Radio' on Frontiers in July

Artist: 
 
Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the release of KELLY KEELING'S new solo album entitled "Mind Radio" on July 3rd in Europe and July 10th in North America.
 
Kelly Keeling is a Louisiana-born multi-instrumentalist in high demand as songwriter, vocalist, guitarist, bassist, keyboardist, and producer. He began his musical career with Baton Rouge with whom he released 3 albums. Later he joined Blue Murder’s 2nd album, “Nothin but Trouble,” wrote and recorded 2 albums with John Norum (Europe) following  extensive tours of Norway & Sweden. Keeling joined Heaven & Earth for “Windows to the World,” then 3 albums and world tour with Michael Schenker’s MSG, 4 albums with Carmine Appice's Guitar Zeus, featuring legendary guitarists Brian May, Yngwie Malmsteen, Neal Schon, Slash, Zak Wilde, Steve Morse, Paul Gilbert, and Vivian Campbell. After 3 years as lead vocalist touring and recording with Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Keeling returned to independent projects including the recent album, Red Zone Rider, featuring UFO guitarist Vinnie Moore and Scot Coogan.
 
Amid all these collaborations, Kelly debuted as a solo artist with the album "Giving Sight to the Eye" which was released in March 2005, featuring Roger Daltrey, Denny Laine, Kerry Livgren, Carmine Appice & Tony Franklin. 
Now in 2015, Kelly Keeling is back with another solo album entitled, "Mind Radio," which is produced by the very-much-in-demand Alessandro Del Vecchio (Revolution Saints, Bonfire, Graham Bonnet, Hardline etc.).  
 
 "This album is a culmination of the last 5 years on a journey to revive my old band amidst considerations of not playing music anymore for a while due to a much needed break" says Kelly. "But during the process I found direction, actually traveling and ending up all over the world on tour with Baton Rouge, and as a solo artist at various festivals and venues. This album Mind Radio is very honest, walking the listener through what I endured on this journey. I love my band. Alessandro Del Vecchio! What a genius that guy is. I've produced and been a part of many albums but this guy is so brilliant! What a great musician singer, writer, Producer and Brother to me. I’m so very happy to have him onboard as he surely simplified a focused direction, taking a load of effort off of me through a masterpiece of work which seems to have taken lifetimes to get here."
 
With songwriting contributions from Robert Sall (RIDE OUT THE STORM, FROZEN IN TIME), VON GROOVE's Michael Shotton, guitarist Mario Percudani and Del Vecchio himself. Musically and sonically, this is a brilliant Melodic Rock album showcasing the impeccable vocal talents of one of the most underrated Hard Rock singers of our time. Also included on the album are three songs written by Keeling together with his BATON ROUGE cohorts Jack Ponti and Lance Bulen (WRITTEN IN FIRE, MONKEY HOUSE and WHO DO YOU RUN TO).

Another Supergroup is Born: RED ZONE RIDER (Keeling, Coogan & Moore)

KELLY KEELING
VOCALS / BASS

 

SCOT COOGAN
DRUMS

 

VINNIE MOORE
GUITARS

 

The debut, self-titled album by RED ZONE RIDER (RZR) will be officially released by Magna Carta.

Consisting of world class guitar hero, Vinnie Moore; vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, Kelly Keeling; and drummer, Scot Coogan, RZR plays rock'n'roll infected by a heavy blues-oriented backdrop. 

Played by the newly emerging AOR radio of the early 1970's which featured bands such as  Led Zeppelin, 
Deep Purple, Mountain, Grand Funk, the sound of this era is heard throughout RZR's album. 
Dripping with attitude and swagger, two of the chief components of music from this time period, Red Zone Rider sounds like they could easily have been recording in London in 1972 with Eddie Kramer at the board. 

Instead, RZR recorded the new album a year ago in Las Vegas with Mike Varney producing. In either scenario, Vinnie, Kelly and Scot have made an album that will span decades. Red Zone Rider is one of the finest musical combinations to have come forth in a long, long time.
