“Today I’m happy to announce that I have finished recording my second solo album and that it will be released this Summer. Its title is Brand New Revolution and once again I collaborated with some amazing musicians & songwriters on it, including singers Jeff Scott Soto, Elize Ryd (Amaranthe), Mats Levén (Candlemass), Jacob Bunton (Adler, Lynam)
My Firewind band mate Jo Nunez played drums and Marty O’ Brien (Lita Ford band) played bass, while Jay Ruston (Stone Sour, Anthrax, Steel Panther, etc.) engineered the sessions.
With regard to the music itself, I can say that it’s a continuation of the modern hard rock style I followed on my 1st album, although I think this one’s a bit heavier. Needless to say, there’s tons of guitar on it! Most of the tracks were recorded live with me and the rhythm section jamming in a room. There’s a certain energy about it, that I hadn’t previously done on a record before. The album is being mixed by the legendary Mike Fraser (Metallica, AC/DC, Aerosmith, Van Halen, etc.) in Vancouver, as I write these words. The first few mixes I got sound crushing! I can’t wait to share this with you all!”
