  1. From Escape Music: STEELOVER is a Belgian Melodic Rock band. The band was formed in the early 80's by three friends living in Liege, Belgium, the guitarists Pat Freson & Mel Presti and the bassist Nick Gardi. In search of a drummer, they threw their sights on Rudy Lenners (Scorpions) upon his return from Germany, having left the famous German band Scorpions. Rudy proposed to contact Vince Cardillo, a singer who had already on the one hand experience and on the other hand already recorded an album in London, it will fit perfectly explained Rudy. They all felt the magic during the first rehearsal. In no time, Steelover recorded their first album "Glove Me” which was released under the label Mausoleum. To date, this album was sold for over more than 400.000 copies of which more than 76,000 in Poland. They followed with a tour across different countries like The Netherlands, Germany, France and Belgium including Forest National opening for Bon Jovi and KISS. Vince decided to leave the band. Replaced by Dani Klein, the second album was recorded but never released. Dani left the band after a short time with Mel Presti to start a new band under the name Vaya Con Dios. The band came back in 2017 with a new E.P. (including single "Wild and Free" mixed by the legendary producer and and mixing engineer Tommy Hansen but without Vince and Nel. In 2019, Rudy Lenners greeted the audience one last time before retiring from his musical career at the Golden Age festival with Vince as special guest. After the show Vince, Pat & Nick decided to continue the Steelover’s adventure and started to look for another drummer and another guitarist. After a few weeks of auditions, Calin (guitars) and Nikko (drums) joined the Steelover family. The newcomers are bringing a modern and more powerful touch to both old and new songs. Since October 2020 the band has been working hard on the new album which is scheduled on Escape Music on 19th August 2022…...We will rock you !!! Track list: 1. Dealer 3:47 2. Give It Up 3:53 3.

  2. Press release: The band is: Ben Green – Vocals Steve Newman – Guitar, Keyboards Dave Bartlett – Bass Toni Lakush – Drums THE CONCEPTION The Compass story began back in December 2017 when singer songwriter Steve Newman decided to write a few songs that musically would step outside the barriers imposed by many years writing for his own band Newman. This was to be something very different, liberating, both musically and lyrically, from anything he had created before, with the freedom to move across genres and not be pigeon holed within any particular musical style. THE BAND Part of this removal from Steve’s previous work would involve looking for a singer to bring these ideas to life. After a few auditions and a few calls in the latter part of 2018 Steve started talking with singer Ben Green about the songs and through these conversations the nucleus of the band started to take shape. David Bartlett joined the band in early 2019 and was a very natural choice, Dave being a member of the Newman touring band for the passed 9 years. with the addition of Toni Lakush filling the drum position the Compass band was complete. THE MUSIC A very eclectic mix pulling in influences from Dream Theater, Rush, Saga, through It Bites, and Pink Floyd. the band set about recording their debut album ”Our Time On Earth” which was subsequently released through Escape Music (ESM 342) in 2020 to great acclaim by the music press and fans of both the Melodic Rock and Metal genres. Gathering multiple 10’s and 100% reviews, Steve’s vision, and indeed the rest of the band’s was successfully realised in creating a bridge between these two genres of music. One of the greatest compliments being that the songs could not be placed into one specific category. High on the momentum from the first album, and also restricted to only studio work due to the pandemic Steve set about constructing songs within a concept for the second album. Compass are very proud to introduce you to the ”Theory Of Tides” a concept album based on the life, works, and inner turmoil of the famous astronomer and scientist Galileo Galilei. It follows in the Compass tradition of creating mindscapes both musically and lyrically taking the listener through a journey that encompasses Galileo’s life. ”Theory Of Tides” shows that Compass are a developing band and becoming even more in tune with each other as writers and performers. The musical arrangements and production also reflect this natural evolution. 1. Mountains On The Moon 10:59 2. Searching For Answers 6:35 3. The Assayer 8:08 4. Once In A Lifetime 5:17 5.

This quartet have come up with an album chock full of surprises that will appeal to fans of Scandinavian Hard Rock such as Treat, Alien, and Skagarack.

Robbie’s first influences (besides his dad always singing and playing the guitar) were Trini Lopez and the Beatles. Shortly after, the influences were bands like Creedence Clearwater Revival and Grand Funk Railroad. Robbie’s first break in the music business came when he met Rock and Roll Hall Of Famer Felix Cavaliere of The Rascals in CT. Felix produced the album “FURY” with a slew of great musicians in a CT studio. After the album disappeared from the charts, Robbie signed with a management company that had Michael Bolton ties and the duo recorded at least four albums worth of material at Michael’s CT studio. It still failed to generate a record deal. When that deal ended about three years later Robbie dropped a DAT tape in Arif Mardin’s mailbox in CT. Arif called the next day and a deal with Atlantic Records was on the table. One hurdle to go, a showcase with the new Atlantic regime. Again, it proved disappointing, no deal. At the suggestion of a friend, a CD was sent to Frontiers Records and the two “Blanc Faces” records were done in 2005 and 2009. Robbie then signed on to sing with the “Find Me” project which has received some great reviews on all three releases. Robbie also sings lead vocals in a band called East Temple Avenue which will have it’s first release in 2020 as well. ETA is comprised of members from various bands like “Work of Art” and “Cruzh” along with Darren Philips (founder) and Phil Lindstrand. In 2019 Robbie hooked up with Escape Music to do a “70’s and 80’s vibe” record and Robbie loved the idea. The result is that a solo record will be coming in 2021, written and produced by Steve Overland and Tommy Denander. The songs are fresh and vibrant, just what we need in these troubling times and with Robbie’s powerhouse vocals leading the way then we are all in for a real treat. Robbie LaBlanc: Lead Vocals / Backing Vocals (Blanc Faces / Find Me) Tommy Denander: All Guitars / Keyboards (Alice Cooper / Steve Walsh / Jimi Jamison) Brian Anthony: Bass / Percussion (Steve Walsh / Lonerider / Overland) Michael Lange: Drums Steve Overland: Backing Vocals (FM / Lonerider / Shadowman) Produced by: Tommy Denander / Khalil Turk / Steve Overland
  21. From Escape Music: Escape Music pleased to announce the release date for RADAR - Lost In The Atlantic. The CD will be limited edition to 1000 copies only! All will be numbered 1-1000 and will include a post card hand signed by the band! First time On CD!!! Radar was formed in 1981 when David West, Rod Jordan & Gary Stevenson met at the ABC Music Store in Surrey England, where David & Gary were working as guitar & keyboard demonstrators. They set up an 8 track-recording studio ‘Secret Studios’ in West London where they composed their first recordings. In 1983 Radar was signed to Warner Bros Publishing UK and their journey began. During this time guitar player Gary Stevenson also produced ‘outside’ bands at Secret studios, one of them being an unknown duo called ‘Go West’. Gary also used David West on this project and after a few demos the Manager of the band ‘John Glover’ was impressed enough with the work that he commissioned Gary to produce 2 tracks ‘We Close Our Eyes’ & ‘Call Me’ at Chipping Norton Studios in Oxfordshire. These songs & productions caused a stir in the music business at the time and Go West had many record deal offers from major record companies. The band wanted to stay with Gary as producer so signed with Chrysalis Records who were happy to do this, and the rest is history. Go West went on to become the ‘Best Newcomers’ at the 1985 Brit Awards. Radar began recording their album at the famous ‘Trident Studios’ on Wardour Street, London early 1985. In late December 1985 Radar left these shores to reside in the Isle Of Man at ‘The Old Schoolhouse’ in Port Erin, which they converted into a residential recording studio and continued to finish the album. In fact most of the initial London recordings were scrapped and the album was re-started from scratch. Gary continued producing while using David West as his right hand man while Rod Jordan worked on writing for the album and made a few guest appearances on some of Gary’s productions. The band was happy to hold back the release of the Radar album and use the success of Gary’s production works with various bands to promote an upcoming release. In retrospect this had a negative effect on Radar, the momentum was lost and the Radar album was never released. Release Date: 19 February 2021 Track Listing: 1. A Trick Of The Light 4:29 2. Goodbye Mr. President 4:34 3. Laena 3:14 4. Going Overboard 4:06 5. Love Wars 3:47 6. The Calling Time 2:49 7. Lost In The City 3:56 8. Someone’s Crying 6:00 9. Look But Don't Touch 4:48 10.

  22. From Escape Music: Heartwind is the love child of progressive keyboard player Mikael Rosengren and guitar player Goran Engvall. The two friends came together in 2017 to write a true melodic rock album, inspired by all their heroes from the 70’s and 80’s, but with a fresh and updated sound. Fast guitars, heavy drums and great songs were their target, aiming for the likes of Whitesnake, Def Leppard and Van Halen. Their 2018 debut “Higher and Higher” was such a breath of fresh air it gave the band strong recognition in a very competitive genre. The songs they had written were so powerful and full of melody that it left fans wanting more. So here we have the follow up recording “Strangers” which sees the band escalate to new heights and features 10 tracks of superb melodic rock with outstanding vocal performances from Nina Soderquist and Stefan Nykvist. Songs filled with hooks, interesting arrangements and melodies to die for. The song writing of Mikael and Goran is a match made in heaven and with a line up filled with high quality band members and superb guest performances from the likes of Mike Lavér (Dynazty), Eirikur Hauksson (Artch), Erik Mårtensson (Eclipse/WET) and Mats Leven (Malmsteen) “Strangers” can’t go wrong! The album is produced, mixed and mastered by Fredrik Folkare (Eclipse / Unleashed), a guarantee itself for high quality and no compromises attitude, when it comes to groove, feel and power. “Strangers” is one of those releases that have you hooked after just one play. Swedish melodic rock as it should be! Release date: 20 November 2020 Catalogue No: ESM347 The Band: Nina Soderquist – Lead Vocals Stefan Nykvist – Lead Vocals Peter “Trumpeter” Svensson – Drums Mikael Rosengren – Keyboards Goran Engvall – Guitars, Bass, Backing Vocals & additional Keyboards.

  23. From Escape Music: Bite The Bullet were originally formed in 1986 by singer songwriter Mick Benton and drummer Graham Cowling. They met in 1984 when they both joined West London rock band “Mother’s Ruin”. Thanks to the legendary Greg Lake, Benton managed to secure a solo deal with Atlantic Records and he asked Cowling to play drums. Its good to see that their collaboration is still strong to this very day. In 1986 “Bite the Bullet” were formed and the music played was in the style of Foreigner, Toto and Mr. Mister, an album was released in 1989 to some quiet success. The music was warmly received and the band earned themselves some radio airplay. However, britpop was coming into the forefront and a cancelled support slot with the mighty ELO saw the band disheartened and whilst they never really disbanded there was a long period of inactivity. Benton and Cowling always remained friends and they still played in pubs and clubs over the years which brings is up to 2019 when their debut was reissued on CD. It ignited a flame in the two men and brought the original recording back to the forefront again and old fans reappraised the album whilst new fans joined in. Mick and Graham decided to get writing new material for a second “Bite the Bullet” album and the result is outstanding, coming across like Mr Mister meets Asia. The new songs are a natural continuation of the original BTB sound and have a great feel to them, opener “Rock to Stones” is a killer. A great start to 2021!. Line up Mick Benton – Lead Vocals, Guitar, Bass, Keyboards Graham Cowling – Drums Produced by Mick Benton. Members over the years include: Malcolm Jones: guitar / Phil Longden: keyboards / Dave Foster: bass Graham Foy: guitar / John Haynes: bass Release Date: 22 January 2021 Catalogue number: ESM349 Track Listing: 1 Rocks To Stones 3:49 2 Black & White 3:26 3 Falling 4:35 4 I’ll Go 5 Starlight 3:47 6 You Never Knew 4:04 7 The Lonely Road 4:38 8 Dark Energy 4;50 9 More Than This 3:00 10 Bring It On 4:31 11 Under The Veil 5:00 12 Unconditional or Last Chance Radio (Bonus) 4:06

  25. From Escape Music: Signal Red made their mark in 2018 with the release of “Under the Radar”. The band is made up of outstanding musicians principally Guitarist Steve Grocott and Vocalist Lee Small. The collaboration first came together in February, 2013 when Steve was at a loose end. He had been in a band previously called “Sevendayz” which had recently folded and he contacted Lee as he had heard so much about him, mainly from the self-titled SHY album that appeared in 2011. The two hit it off straight away and it seemed inevitable that an album would follow. Steve got caught up working with the UK band “Ten” as Gary Hughes asked him to be in the bands line-up for some shows and to feature on the new album, so the debut Signal Red release was halted for a while. Eventually Steve’s time freed up so he could once again concentrate on new material for the album and the whole thing has just progressed into a fantastic recording. The collaboration with Lee is clearly a good match as Lee has already proved his worth with “Shy” more recently “Lionheart” as well as solo albums, the Phenomena project and rock band “Snowfall”. Lee is a very soulful, melodic vocalist and his voice suits Signal Red perfectly. The debut caused quite a stir with its strong melodic rock roots and this new album “Alien Nation” is an extension of that robust rock sound that they have already proved themselves worthy of. We have here 11 tracks of sheer quality and Steve’s playing shines through on all tracks. A one to watch out for!!! Signal Red is: Lee Small: Lead vocals and All Backing vocals (Phenomena / Shy / Lionheart) Steve Grocott: All guitars Keyboards Strings (Ten) With Special Guests: Steve Newman: Bass and Backing vocals (Newman / Compass) Daniel Zaman: Drums Release Date: 16th October 2020 Catalogue No: ESM346 Tracks: 1.
