Rock And Roll Radio 17/12/20
'Rock And Roll Radio', the third solo album by Swedish vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Michael Palace, was released by Frontiers at the beginning of this month, of which the track, 'Way Up Here', is today's Video Of The Day. It's the first that Palace has fully self-produced, mixed and mastered, and it delivers authentic 80's influenced AOR/Melodic Rock in spades, with dreamy keyboards, layers of soaring guitars, a huge drum sound and thundering bass. Palace has also featured on releases by other artists, with the likes of labelmates Angelica, Crazy Lixx, Find Me and Creye benefitting from his expert songwriting, guitar and vocal skills. His association with Frontiers began as a songwriter and guitarist for First Signal (featuring Harem Scarem vocalist Harry Hess), Cry of Dawn (featuring session vocalist Göran Edman), Kryptonite (featuring The Poodles vocalist Jakob Samuel) and Toby Hitchcock (also of Pride Of Lions), after which he signed to the label.
