Press release from Frontiers:

BREAKING NEWS: Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the signing of Magic Dance!

MAGIC DANCE is the solo project of singer/songwriter Jon Siejka, formed in Long Island, NY in 2012. A self-taught musician and producer, his debut EP, "Another World" was released in May 2013. "The Mirror of Dreams" and "Kiss Scene" EP followed, all heavily influenced by the iconic synth-pop and movie soundtrack music of the 1980s.

His 2015 release, "Haunting Me" EP marked an evolution in his sound, featuring guitar-heavy cuts like "Still Haunting Me" and "I Wanna Know". His newest record, "Vanishings" is an even larger statement of that evolution, combining '80s influenced AOR, pop rock, and synth-pop to create a sound uniquely his own.

In 2017, Jon will commence work on what will be his debut album for Frontiers, scheduled for release in 2018.

Jon says: “I can't imagine a better home for my music than Frontiers. They are the perfect label to release my upcoming album and solidify the direction in style I've been heading in over the last few releases. I am very excited about this new record and can't wait to share my new music with you all!”

I don't like much what I've listened of his first EPs (too mellow and excess of synth for my tastes), but 'Vanishings' is a very good AOR album. Hope he keeps on this line.

Yeah, I am amazed and absolutely delighted by this news. Would not have imagined in a million years this was a possibility or even considered by either party. Very good.

You mean another one?

I believe that's what he's suggesting will occur. ;)

 

Awesome, awesome news. I hope for, and expect brilliance. The cool thing about this is that as long as his desire remains strong, this can hopefully continue for years - decades to come... as he's just a dude and there's no band to fall apart around him. ;)

    • Have to agree....Absolutely killer album!  I've been through it a handful of times now and I swear the more I listen, the more I like it.       I don't know if it'll be my top album but it's definitely right there among my favorites this year. Have picked up their last album too and will be checking that out closer once I can get the new one out of my CD player Not sure how these guys slipped under my radar.  Good stuff.
    • Yeah I know what you mean. I did a search and didn't see it either at first. It's not the first time and probably won't be the last.
    • Old photo of the entrance to Tower Records at Eastport Plaza.  This is like walking directly back in time 25+ years.  I even remember what part of the store I found the Roxy Blue CD  
    • Yeah I was sure there was one somewhere.
      I did a search for Steel City in the subject line.
      I think my mistake was that I put a space between steel and city  
    • Really like this track, will have to check out the Ascension album...   
    • "Want Some?" was easily one of my favorite CD's in the 1992 time-frame.  I remember specifically purchasing my copy at Tower Records at Eastport Plaza in Portland, Oregon late summer 1992.  No idea how I remember such specific (and often useless) information, but I also purchased Angel City "Face To Face" on CD the same day. Roxy Blue "Want Some" / Hardline "Double Eclipse" / Def Leppard "Adrenalize" / Bon Jovi "Keep The Faith" / Bangalore Choir "On Target" / Electric Angels "ST"  These are the discs that were in CONSTANT rotation in my system 1992 / 1993.  Yes, certainly there were others, but I pretty much wore the aforementioned titles out! Getting back on-track to the topic at-hand... I don't hold-out enormous hope based on the "Different sound" comment, but Frontiers is a great label, so we'll see.  I think more of a problem (for me, anyway), is it is no longer 1992, and I'm no longer a youthful 24 year-old looking to hang-on to the genre I knew and loved dating back to the early 1980's at a time when a "new" sound was taking over the airwaves.
    • Here's me repeating the same thread in April  
    • Here's a thread you replied to  
    • NOLA is one of my favorite CD's. Not one bad song.
    • Couldn't find a thread for this one. After a few listens I've decided that these are the songs I really like off the album.

      Decent enough, and worth picking up.
