Country Icon SAMMY KERSHAW Sings The Blues On His Newest Studio Album Of Revamped Blues Classics 'Cross Road Blues', Shares Blistering Cover Of FLEETWOOD MAC’s “OH WELL!”

Los Angeles, CA - Renowned country music luminary Sammy Kershaw takes a soul-stirring journey into the heart of blues with the unveiling of his latest studio album, Cross Road Blues! The album serves as an homage to the rich tapestry of blues music that has profoundly influenced Kershaw’s music over the course of his nearly 4-decade career and showcases Kershaw's unparalleled vocal prowess and gift for interpretation.

Seamlessly blending traditional blues elements like the haunting melodies of Robert Johnson and the fiery riffs of Albert King with Kershaw’s signature country charm, Cross Road Blues traverses the vast intersection of blues and country music, offering listeners a front-row seat to Kershaw's masterful reinterpretations. The album also mixes this heady brew with a bit of rockabilly stomp, courtesy of producer and rockabilly guitar icon Danny B. Harvey, as witnessed on one of the album’s standout tracks, a cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Oh Well (Part 1).” Those who only know the Lindsey Buckingham/Stevie Nicks era of Fleetwood Mac are in for a real treat as Kershaw and Harvey revive this Peter Green-era gem of a song that comes with one of the most devastating guitar riffs of all time!

Los Angeles, CA – The music world has been buzzing ever since it was announced that an extraordinary collection of musicians would be recreating in its entirety King Crimson’s 1969 prog rock classic In The Court Of The Crimson King, including such luminaries as Todd Rundgren, Megadeth’s Chris Poland, Deep Purple's Ian Paice, Rainbow's Joe Lynn Turner, Dream Theater's James LaBrie, Cactus's Carmine Appice and others!

Flamenco Guitar Maestro RAFAEL RIQUENI Transforms Classic Rock Staple “STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN” For His New Single And Album!

Los Angeles, CA – Prepare to be mesmerized as Maestro Rafael Riqueni, an iconic figure in flamenco guitar music, unveils a transcendent rendition of a classic rock staple with his brand new single released today, a flamenco-infused cover of Led Zeppelin's rock epic "Stairway to Heaven." The track serves as a glimpse into Riqueni's innovative approach to music, which relies more on emotive, passionate playing over technical wizardry, and has made him one of the most celebrated Spanish guitarists in history.

Riqueni’s deliberative approach to “Stairway” adds new dimension and weight to the song’s familiar melodies, allowing each note to take center stage before proceeding to the next. The transitions between the composition’s many passages are seamless and natural, and the bombastic conclusion is as explosive as you’d expect - except Riqueni accomplishes the feat without the aid of Marshall stacks! It’s a bravura performance that both rock and flamenco fans are sure to love!

Stream the single: https://orcd.co/rafaelriqueni_stairwaytoheaven

And Riqueni's brilliant reinterpretation of "Stairway” is just the beginning. Come February 16, the artist is set to release a full album of phenomenal renderings of timeless classics by the likes of Eric Clapton, Aerosmith, Whitney Houston, The Police and more! Called Versatae, the album will also feature lush renderings of Ennio Morricone’s gorgeous movie theme to “Cinema Paradiso” as well as two Spanish-flavored tracks, one written by Latin superstar Santana and the other a traditional Spanish favorite “Amapola,” which has been covered by everyone from Bing Crosby to Gaby Moreno and Natalie Cole!

King as well as his astounding version of The Beatles' "Yesterday," which are included as bonus tracks on the CD version.

Multi-Instrumentalist Julian Calv Releases A Cover Of The Moondog Song “Encore” (Originally Titled “Utsu”) Through Deko Entertainment

Calv carries on the legacy of Moondog (aka The Viking of Sixth Avenue) with full support from the Moondog archives!

Stockton, NJ – Percussionist Julian Calv was a music major who recently graduated from Moravian University in Bethlehem, PA. He now resides in the art community of Windsor, VT. Calv can occasionally be seen on Church Street in Burlington, VT, busking much in the way Moondog, aka the Viking of Sixth Avenue, did in NYC during the 50’s and 60’s.

Calv has studied every aspect of the avant-garde musician’s creative life. In addition to composing and performing, Moondog’s life included the invention of several musical instruments, most famously the trimba (a sort of triangular drum). Calv has even built his own one-of-a-kind trimba, going to great lengths to travel to Sweden and Germany to meet with fellow Moondog aficionados, and study the design of the instrument. Moondog archivist Wolfgang Gnida states, “Julian Calv - the future of the trimba, that's what I called Julian some time ago. That may seem a bit of an exaggeration, but since the time I've been working at the Moondog archives, I’ve yet to meet a musician who has been as intensely involved with the trimba as Julian.”

Calv had this to say about his latest release, “‘Encore’ is written by Moondog and performed by Ava Bloomfield on piano and myself. The song was originally titled ‘Utsu’ and played on an instrument Moondog built having the same name. This reinterpretation of the song brings the utsu's melody to the piano keys. ‘Encore’ is one of nine songs from an upcoming album titled ‘Nonstop Motion,’ featuring the music of Moondog and Julian all wrapped up in one.”

Listen here: https://ada.lnk.to/JCEncore

In addition to covering Moondog material, Calv has now been creating his own percussion-based compositions in a style reminiscent of the late composer. His first release, “Route 4,” and follow up “Thorn and Roots” have been picked up on multiple Spotify playlists.

Rock Legends Hurricane Drop New Video For Queen Cover of “Under Pressure” In Support of First New Album Release In Over 20 Years Through Deko Entertainment

Stockton, NJ – Hurricane was formed in 1983, originally featuring current Foreigner lead vocalist Kelly Hansen (vocals/rhythm guitar), Robert Sarzo (guitar), Tony Cavazo (bass), and Jay Schellen (drums) currently with Yes. Hurricane released four albums: Take What You Want (1985), Over the Edge (1988), Slave to the Thrill (1990), and Liquifury (2001). Over the Edge was its album featuring the charting song "I'm on to You,” which peaked at No. 33 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks Chart in 1988.

In 2010 Sarzo and Cavazo, founding members, reunited and recruited drummer Mike Hansen. In 2021 Australian-born singer Dan Schumann, best known as a member of the Las Vegas headliner vocal group Tenors of Rock, joined. Hurricane dropped their first single “Rock Star Cheater” on July 21st, and critics and fans are taking notice.

The record is called 'Reconnected' and considering the impact of the material, they are doing just that, reconnecting back to the music scene.  The first single and opening track, Rockstar Cheater, is what this band is about, the cracking beat, fast guitars and an insane solo. Is Hurricane here to stay?  I hope so as they have released an album that you will not turn off.”  - Metal Exiles

Listen here: https://ada.lnk.to/RockStarCheater

The album has 11 tracks including their first single, “Rock Star Cheater”, a rerecord of its Top 40 hit “I’m on to You”, and a cover of the Queen/David Bowie track “Under Pressure”, for which they have just released a brand-new video.

JYRKI 69 Lends His Voice To A Psychedelic Melding Of Minds Between STEVE STEVENS, BOOTSY COLLINS, GEOFF DOWNES, and CARMINE APPICE On A Brand New Version Of PINK FLOYD’S “ONE OF THESE DAYS”

Los Angeles, CA - Pink Floyd’s sixth studio album, Meddle, marked the dawn of a new era for the British quartet. Still reeling from the departure of former front man, Syd Barrett, and struggling to find their feet, Meddle pushed the remaining members to new heights of collaboration and novel experimentation, as heard most forcefully on the album’s opening track, “One Of These Days.” Today, a brand-new version of the song carries forth this collaborative spirit as an eclectic group of stellar musicians and boldly creative artists offer their take on this psychedelic masterpiece.

This star-studded single features a pulsating bassline from rhinestone rockstar and Parliament-Funkadelic icon, Bootsy Collins, the wailing guitar licks and shredding reverberations of Grammy Award winning guitarist, Steve Stevens, accompanied by the aggressive, hard-hitting cymbal crashes and snare hits of legendary percussionist, Carmine Appice, and all sewn together by the scintillating treble musings from keyboard commander and prog rock superstar, Geoff Downes. Providing the song’s only vocal moment, the surreal spoken word bit, is none other than the voice of Finland’s finest goth metal band, The 69 Eyes, baritone vocal god, Jyrki 69.

Stream/download the single: https://orcd.co/j69_collins_stevens_downes_appice_oneofthesedays

“One Of These Days” is the second single to be released from the forthcoming full-length recreation of the entirety of Meddle.

L.A. Alt-Rock Band Make Believe Friends Release Cover of Blondie’s Classic “RAPTURE”

Final Mix and ATMOS Mix by Legendary Producer Ed Stasium

Make Believe Friends drops their latest video and single, a cover of Blondie’s iconic and timeless song “Rapture” on Friday, June 16, 2023.  “Rapture” is an American classic rock/rap/alt-rock song written by Debbie Harry and Chris Stein of Blondie. The hit song was released in 1981 on Blondie’s fifth studio album “Autoamerican”.

Mindy Milburn and Laura Espinoza (the core members of Make Believe Friends) wanted to create a bit more haunting updated version, but without changing the structure, integrity or major elements of this classic song.

To make this happen, Mindy (lead vocals) and Laura (guitar, keyboards) enlisted the talents of some of the best musicians and producers in music today including: Bass: Phil Soussan (Ozzy, Last in Line); Synth: Michael Bluestein (Foreigner); Drums: Logan Miles Nix (John 5, Heart of Blonde); Michaela Metiver (Heart of Blonde); & Enrique Garcia (Heart of Blonde).

Bernie Godwin III (whose father Dito Godwin produced No Doubt), co-produced and co-mixed the single, then legendary Producer Ed Stasium (Ramones, Talking Heads, Smithereens) produced the final mix and the ATMOS mix.

I just watched and listened to this great new version of ‘Rapture.’ Wow! There's a lot going on, and the slightly darker edge timed close to the recent release of "Haunt Me" makes sense. I love it! It is hard to believe that it has already been over 40 years since Blondie's No. 1 gold single. Congratulations to everyone, especially Mindy pulling off the singing and rapping.” - Warren Kurtz - Goldmine Music Magazine

Watch Rapture video here: https://youtu.be/KYqAGjAcyPY

About Mindy Milburn:
Mindy has a passion for all performing arts- starting out as a ballet dancer and actress, & eventually finding her voice and passion for songwriting and music. She is also the lead vocalist for the Blondie Tribute Band “Heart of Blonde”. Originally from Cleveland Ohio, she has performed in numerous musical theater productions & indie films and was also a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers Dance Team.  Mindy made the move to southern California to follow her dream of becoming a recording artist and feels very blessed by the opportunities that have come her way.

About Laura Espinoza:
Laura is a songwriter/guitarist, playwright, and TV producer. She has performed on stage with Luis Maldonado (Train), Terri Nunn (Berlin), Dale Bozzio (Missing Persons) & Prescott Niles (The Knack) and started her career with Matt Sorum (Guns n' Roses). She has recorded at Capitol Records, Hollywood, Abbey Road, UK and is the host of “The Rock Radio Show” on KBU-FM, Malibu. Laura is also the recipient of 3 Emmy Awards.

Metal Heroes CHRIS POLAND & DAVE LOMBARDO Team Up With Vocal God GRAHAM BONNET & Prog Giants RICK WAKEMAN & JOE BOUCHARD On A New Recording Of PINK FLOYD’s “SAN TROPEZ!”

Los Angeles, CA - You’d be hard pressed to find a group that can unite musicians from across the whole range of genres and generations better than Pink Floyd. From metal heads to stoners to jazz fans and music nerds, all around the globe fans have found in Pink Floyd’s catalog a rich and abounding treasure trove that continually unearths new pleasures.

Recently, rumors have been circulating about a new gathering of diversely talented artists who participated in an as yet unannounced project to revamp and reimagine Pink Floyd’s hugely experimental sixth studio album, Meddle. Much like last year’s enormously impressive Animals Reimagined and 2021’s Still Wish You Were Here, Meddle Reimagined will bring together masterful musicians, prodigious vocalist and visionary artists to recreate every note from the original 1971 masterpiece.

As a preview of what’s in store, a single of Meddle‘s folksy, breezy ode to a beach resort town in southern France, the great “San Tropez,” is hitting digital stores today. The track builds from a dream team of Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo and Blue Öyster Cult’s Joe Bouchard on bass. Rainbow vocalist Graham Bonnet adds a notably darker edge to Roger Waters’ wistful lyrics, with superb piano work from keyboard wizard Rick Wakeman and, of course, gorgeous slide guitar from Megadeth’s Chris Poland.

Bonnet declares, “When first invited to participate on Pink Floyd’s ‘San Tropez,’ I was flattered, yet a little nervous. I had sung on ‘Dogs’ [from Animals Reimagined] a year earlier and was initially concerned whether I could do justice to such an iconic song and thankfully, it turned out better than expected. ‘San Tropez’ would prove to be trickier for me but ultimately I was happy that I was able to honor yet another gem from the cherished and enigmatic Pink Floyd.”

Poland adds,“To me the English are not afraid to wear their heart on their sleeve. Especially Pink Floyd. Even though this song seems upbeat there is an underlying sadness. A longing if you will. Their use of major to minor chords during my solo spot really points to this. I love this band. I have always thought of Pink Floyd as the thinking man's Beatles.”

A Murderer’s Row Of Rock All-Stars Join HAWKESTREL To Unearth A Rare Halloween Treat By ALIEN SEX FIEND!

Includes performances by HAWKWIND co-founder Nik Turner, MC5’s Wayne Kramer, YES/ASIA keyboardist Geoff Downes & L.A. GUNS’s Adam Hamilton

Los Angeles, CA – Former Hawkwind bassist and current producer, songwriter and leader of Hawkestrel Alan Davey has carved out a unique niche for himself, collaborating with some of the biggest players and musicians on killer studio recordings of both brand new originals and extremely inventive cover versions. In 2019, he teamed with future Hall of Famer Todd Rundgren on Hawekestrel’s superb version of Post Malone’s “Circles” and he recruited Cream’s Ginger Baker and numerous Hawkwind alumni to play on original tracks from the 2020 Hawkestrel album Pioneers of Space.

Now he’s brought together another stellar cast to reinvent a little known but instantly iconic track from the unforgettable British goth band Alien Sex Fiend. “Now I’m Feeling Zombified” is a track that seems primed for revival, as catchy as anything on your standard Halloween playlist but not overplayed to bloody death. In Davey’s hands, the track becomes even more powerful than ASF’s original, coaxing some stellar keyboards from Yes/Asia member Geoff Downes and exorcising a demonically brilliant guitar performance from MC5’s Wayne Kramer. Hawkwind co-founder Nik Turner and Adam Hamilton of L.A. Guns rounds out this murderer’s row of killer guests. Do yourself a favor and throw this on at your next Halloween party and watch your friends freak out!

Los Angeles, CA – Ben E. King’s influence as both a songwriter and performer is undeniable. Beginning with his tenure in the legendary vocal band The Drifters, where he sang lead on such classics as “There Goes My Baby,” “This Magic Moment” and “Save The Last Dance,” and on through his solo career highlighted by timeless treasures such as “Stand By Me” and “Spanish Harlem,” King crafted a singing style, soulful and smooth, that continues to echo today.

Bass Icon Jeff Berlin To Release New Tribute Album To Legendary Jack Bruce “Jack Songs”

Features guest performers Sammy Hagar, Alex Lifeson, Geddy Lee, Gregg Bissonette, Gary Husband, Eric Johnson, Bill Frisell, Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal, Alex Ligertwood, Scott Henderson, Marcus Miller, Ron Carter, Tony Levin, Michael League, Nathan East, Mark King, Bruce Guttridge, Billy Sheehan and Johnny Hiland!

“Jack Songs” produced by John McCracken

Bass icon Jeff Berlin will be releasing a new tribute album to legendary Jack Bruce titled “Jack Songs” on August 2, 2022! Jack Bruce, best known for his work with classic rock group Cream as well as his critically acclaimed solo work passed away in 2014. Jeff Berlin, who has been called “the greatest bass player in the world”, was a personal friend of Jack’s and wanted to record his songs in remembrance of how Jack helped Jeff to find his own musical path.

Says Jeff, “Recording the music of Jack Bruce has been the most emotional recording project of my career. Jack was the greatest bass influence I ever had. In the center of his music were these strange and wonderful bass lines weaving in and out of the key, reaching for resolutions and finding them, again, and again. Jack’s playing was a living evolving improvisation.

Jack was the Alpha and Omega for me. I never would have become the bass player I became if I didn't hear his unfettered improvisations and innovations, his creating a completely original bass tone, and his playing every gig as if it was his last. When he died, I immediately set out to honor him by reviewing his music to choose some of my favorite songs of his and recording them via my own musical vision. As was his legacy of musical brilliance, I wanted this record to be brilliant to honor his spirit. He really means this much to me.

‘Jack Songs’ isn’t a cover CD, not in the literal sense. Except for a couple of tunes from his Cream period (arranged in ways that should surprise people) most of the songs on this CD come from other periods in Jack’s musical life after Cream. Jack’s solo career represented a multitude of musical styles. This recording will be a new revamp of some of those songs, some of the best music that I heard from one of the greatest musicians of the last fifty years.

In arranging the music, I was inspired by Giles Martin’s production of The Beatles ‘Love’ CD. His production work on this CD is fantastic. I tried to follow his example of his fitting various Beatle song quotes from different tunes into each tune by doing a similar thing by combining different Jack songs. Rather than computerized manipulation of music that was already recorded, I arranged the music so that each song on ‘Jack Songs’ would end up as an individual work comprised of various parts of other songs in them. I never would have thought of this without Giles showing me this path.”

Guest performers:

Sammy Hagar, Alex Lifeson, Geddy Lee, Gregg Bissonette, Gary Husband, Eric Johnson, Bill Frisell, Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal, Alex Ligertwood, Scott Henderson, Marcus Miller, Ron Carter, Tony Levin, Michael League, Nathan East, Mark King, Bruce Guttridge, Billy Sheehan and Johnny Hiland!

For over 40 years, Jeff Berlin has stood as one of the most innovative electric bassists of the 20th and 21st centuries. Known for his one-of-a-kind tone, jaw dropping technique and highly advanced harmonic approaches to the bass, Jeff has been one of the major figures in firmly establishing the electric bass as a solo instrument well deserving of its own distinct place in modern music.

Jeff’s recording and performance credits include a who’s who of jazz and rock. They include: Bill Bruford, Allan Holdsworth, Larry Coryell, Pat Martino, John McLaughlin, Anderson Wakeman Bruford Howe, Frank Zappa, Patrick Moraz and many more.

Singer/Songwriter Mary Fahl Interprets Pink Floyd, George Harrison, Moody Blues, ELO and Others On New Solo Album “Can’t Get It Out Of My Head”

Released July 22, 2022!

In an effort to find some light and comfort during these challenging times, singer/songwriter Mary Fahl looks back to some of the essential music that has brought her sustenance and clarity by reinterpreting songs from her greatest inspirations … Pink Floyd, George Harrison, Moody Blues, ELO, The Rolling Stones, Neil Young and others. For Mary, this is a tribute to the music that defined her as an artist.

With “a voice for the gods that can transport listeners to other realms” (Boston Globe), Mary Fahl is an expressive, emotional singer/songwriter who first achieved fame as lead singer and co-founder of the mid-1990s NYC- based chamber-pop group October Project, a band known for their lush harmonies, sweeping melodies and Fahl’s unique and powerful vocals. After two records on Epic, the band disbanded, but Fahl had more freedom to pursue her own muse, whether that meant writing and recording songs for movies (including the theme for the Civil War epic “Gods and Generals”), singing arias and medieval Spanish songs for Sony Classical or releasing a unique album-length take on “Dark Side of the Moon.”

Fahl's music has a timeless quality that she conveys with an earthy, viscerally powerful contralto that bridges the generational gap between Fairport Convention’s Sandy Denny and London Grammar’s Hannah Reid. Her elegant, cinematic songs have a hauntingly gothic romanticism that inspired renowned writer Anne Rice to portray Mary’s voice emanating from a dead woman’s room in her 2013 novel “The Wolves of Midwinter.”

Over the past few years, she’s been touring and recording on her own label, Rimar Records, and her recent releases have garnered awards including an Indie Acoustic Award for Best Live Album for “Live at the Mauch Chunk Opera House” (filmed for PBS) and a 2020 Independent Music Award for her recent holiday album, “Winter Songs and Carols”. Her latest release, a Blu-ray 5.1 surround DVD, “From the Dark Side of the Moon,” brilliantly mixed by Bob Clearmountain, won the 2021 Immersive Album Audio Listener’s Choice award and was named “Immersive Album of the Year” by Life in Surround.

Now she returns with “Can’t Get It Out of My Head,” a collection of songs that she calls “essential” to her development as an artist … “On top of all the madness that was happening in the world, I was grappling with the devastating loss of my mother and sister this past year and was feeling completely rootless. In an effort to find an anchor, a link to the past, a sense of home, I began to immerse myself in the comfort of music from my youth. These were such essential songs for me… like old friends… my musical home in many ways. I fell in love with each of them at the quintessential coming-of-age moment when music goes straight into your heart with no filter and these songs became part of my musical DNA… I learned to play guitar with several of them – especially the early Neil Young songs. Most of these covers come from the first albums I ever bought using one of those Columbia House ‘get 12 free albums for a $1’ mail order programs. I played these records endlessly… and the lyrics on many of these songs still have a powerful resonance for me.”

The challenge for me and my producer Mark Doyle was to make each of these songs our own while paying tribute to their original greatness...,” says Fahl, “Along with a standard hi-res audio version, we wanted to bring these classics into a new light by utilizing the latest audio technologies to reinterpret my favorite Pink Floyd, Neil Young, George Harrison, Richard Thompson, Moody Blues, The Rolling Stones, ELO, Nick Drake, Judy Collins, and the Mamas and Papas songs in the brilliant, full immersive, high-resolution clarity of 5.1 surround.”

Mary further comments on her collaborator on this latest release, “Producer Mark Doyle and I first met around 2005 when he was the co-producer of 'From the Dark Side of the Moon' and he’s been my Music Director since 2013. Aside from the strings and drums, he played every instrument on this album. We recorded most of it at his home studio and a majority of the vocals are taken from the first time I auditioned these songs with Mark for the album… something I never would have done in my youth… but there’s something fresh, unstudied and unselfconscious about working that way. Mark has been essential to the process of helping me make these great songs my own without sacrificing the essence first captured by their original creators.”

Track List:

1) Can’t Get It Out of My Head (Electric Light Orchestra)
2) Ruby Tuesday (The Rolling Stones)
3) Tuesday Afternoon (Moody Blues)
4) River Man (Nick Drake)
5) Got A Feelin’ (The Mama and the Papas)
6) Don’t Let It Bring You Down (Neil Young)
7) Comfortably Numb (Pink Floyd)
8) Since You’ve Asked (Judy Collins)
9) Beware of Darkness (George Harrison)
10) The Great Valerio (Richard & Linda Thompson)

Here’s what the press has said about Mary Fahl:

With her unmatched contralto voice, a heartfelt piece of herself firmly attached to every song, and her bravery in tackling revered favorites (Dark Side of The Moon, where she brilliantly re-imagined the entirety of the 1973 holy classic), Mary Fahl gives everything to fans.” - MUSIC TAP

Mary Fahl’s striking voice with its wide range, rich, full-bodied amplitude and stately, formal tone, marks her as a first-rate smart-pop diva in the making. Fahl also has the artistic temperament and emotional radar to avoid the showy excesses of divadom.” - THE LOS ANGELES TIMES

Mary Fahl has a voice for the gods that can transport listeners to other realms.” - BOSTON GLOBE

Fahl’s voice has a transcendent and beautiful tone” - THE CELEBRITY CAFE

One of the most distinctive voices in modern music has been singer Mary Fahl.  While we love the 'ethereal girls' on Echoes, Mary Fahl is a powerhouse singer whose roots are more Grace Slick and Sandy Denny than Elizabeth Fraser and Suzanne Vega.” - JOHN DILIBERTO-ECHOES

Mary Fahl is a diva in the best sense of the word. The former lead singer of October Project is a powerful, emotive vocalist who employs her wide range and dramatic flair in a way that never seems hammy or contrived.” - BILLBOARD

It is hard not to fall for this Mary and her soul-permeating pipes…” - THE PORTLAND PRESS

QUIET RIOT's Longtime Bassist CHUCK WRIGHT Releases First Official Single & Video "ARMY OF ME" From His Debut Solo Album, CHUCK WRIGHT'S SHELTERING SKY!

Los Angeles, CA - Long-time bassist for multi-platinum rockers Quiet Riot, Chuck Wright, proudly presents the release of the first single from his new solo album. Wright has also worked alongside such rock music luminaries as Alice Cooper, Greg Allman, Ted Nugent, various members of Guns N’ Roses and Kiss to name a few, and now embarks on his first-ever solo excursion.

The first single is a hard-rocking, intense interpretation of Björk’s 1995 hit “Army of Me” and is accompanied by a video that represents Wright’s exploration into disorder and parallels with the recent chaotic state of world affairs. The visuals include a 3D animation of an “army” of Ruth Bader Ginsburgs, the late Supreme Court Justice, feminist icon, and steadfast advocate for women’s rights and gender equality. “I chose to recognize the late Justice Ginsburg in this video as she was such a formidable presence on and off the bench. She challenged the status quo knocking down legal obstacles to women’s equality and inspired an army of believers.”

The track “Army Of Me” features several of Wright’s musical peers including the late Pat Torpey (Mr. Big) on drums, guitarist Lanny Cordola (House of Lords), and Sven Martin (Jonathan Davis Band) on keyboards along with songstress Whitney Tai, the recent “Best Vocalist” winner at The Intercontinental Music Awards.

(Mixed by Tim Janssens)

Stream/download the single: https://orcd.co/chuck_wrights_sheltering_sky_army_of_me

The full-length album from Chuck Wright's Sheltering Sky, coming in 2022, features over 30 guest performers including members of Mr. Big, Skid Row, Tesla, Dream Theater, Great White, Asia, Jefferson Starship, acclaimed solo artists Allen Hinds, Toshi Yanagi, and many others. Wright is finally stepping out on his own with a wide range of genres, from Jazz Fusion, Prog, Funk to in-your-face Hard Rock, which was in itself one of the things that led him to want to forge his own way and create this unique collection of songs within his “Sheltering Sky” project.
