The two 'O's' have joined forces on a collaboration that has been whispered for years now and the rumours have all been true as this great union is about to be unleashed on the world. This is just beyond a dream, even the thought that two of the finest melodic rock vocalists in the UK would come together and record an album.
We all know the work of Mike Slamer (City Boy, Streets, and Seventh Key) and his amazing production expertise, well here he outshines all of his previous work with a razor sharp explosion of talent. Mike has a knack of making great music sound even better and this is all the evidence we need. Check out songs like 'Smile before you lie' and 'Practice what you preach' for superb examples of melodic hard rock. On top of it all you get some great backing vocals from Kansas members Ronnie Platt and Billy Greer just like icing on the cake!
