Mike Walsh & Five to Life is the creation of Mike Walsh. Best known for his work with his melodic rock band, Departure (as well as Message and many Tribute albums), Walsh says he has taken a different approach to his music on this record, a more earthy, natural sound. Walsh calls it a labor of love.
The songs embody thoughts, feelings, emotions, and relationships; “Face the Music” will stir your heart and capture your imagination. Walsh, reuniting with brilliant musicians, says the new record delivers a message of fine songwriting and exemplary musicianship.
In Short “Face the Music” is destined to become a part of any music lover’s collection.
The album releases 8 February 2023 and is available for order.
“The Golden Gate of the Ecliptic is an asterism in the constellation Taurus that has been known for several thousand years. The constellation is built by the two eye-catching open star clusters of the Pleiades and the Hyades that form the two posts of a virtual gate at the two sides of the ecliptic line. Since the Pleiades are also known as the seven sisters, their respective names provided the trigger to write the 9 songs of this album. It also makes up for a somewhat logical follow up to previous album Bridge To Infinity.
Pre-order is open on bandcamp now!
You can get into the album with this first video, for the track Maia:
July 20 will see the release of No Respect, the next chapter in the Phil Vincent story! No Respect is a wildly imaginative, unabashedly hard rocking album about battling to restore melody in heavy music. “Nobody Cares” struts its stuff with more than a dose of melody and mayhem. Drummer Max Piccolo really shines on “War Arrow” where Vincent’s vocals bring the song to a new level. “The Rifleman” has that fat guitar sound that induces air guitar utopia.
“No Respect” shows Phil Vincent at his best. Songs, Performance, Production…..check, check, & check!
The album is available as a 6 panel Digisleeve CD and on all digital platforms.
After exploring the changes we were bound to experience in this Age Of Aquarius on their 2017 debut Dawn Of The Age Of Aquarius, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Peter Cox and singer Nakoma Z are back with their second effort: … Out There…
With music building on their progressive and rock music roots, yet with a healthy dose of pop melodies thrown in for good measure, the duo are back with a vengeance and deliver 10 compelling songs that discuss various UFO / Alien topics. Sometimes tongue in cheek, sometimes serious, sometimes… well find out for yourself.
With the album taking more time than originally anticipated, Peter and Nakoma Z experienced first hand that changes can come unexpectedly. These changes also opened the door for Peter to add voices and vocals. Parts of the in between storytelling were inspired by documentaries on the subject.
Age Of Aquarius:
Nakoma Z: vocals, lyrics for 1, 2, 3, 7 and 9
Peter Cox: all songs, additional vocals and voices, all instruments and programming, words and lyrics for 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 and 10
Recorded, mixed and mastered by Peter at Down The Road NL
Nakoma Z recorded her vocals in the USA.
Rock Company are pleased to announce they will expand their relation with Phil Vincent for the release of album #5 for D’Ercole called MADE TO BURN! Accompanying Phil are Damian and B.F. D’Ercole. And together with guests Paul Sabu and Vince O’Regan and the last recordings of the late and great David Zycheck, they will attack your senses with killer melodic hard rock.
Expect the release in July, so watch this space!
