LOS ANGELES is a true AOR beauty which is a must for all the Melodic Rock fans!


LOS ANGELES is a band project started in 2007 featuring the extraordinary singer Michele Luppi. Michele cut his teeth at the VIT Los Angeles, with Robin Randall (co-writer of hits for FM, Mark Free, James Christian etc) as one of his musical coaches. He teamed up with bass player and producer Fabrizio Grossi (Glenn Hughes, From the Inside, Vertigo etc.) to give birth to a project that could make him express his Melodic Rock artistic roots.

Michele became widely known during the years in the Hard Rock and Metal scene, singing with the Italian Progressive Metal band Vision Divine on 3 studio albums and one live DVD. He's also the leader and producer of the new Melodic Metal band named Killing Touch.

LOS ANGELES concept is to tribute the AOR greats that shaped Luppi's singing and songwriting abilities.  Contrary to the first record that relied heavily on external songwriters, this new album features the songwriting collaboration between Luppi and Grossi, with more contributions from Eric Ragno (China Blue), Joey Sykes (Hugo), Roberto Priori and ex Dokken axeman George Lynch (on "Nowhere to Run"). There is also a stunning new version of Richard Marx's "Nothing to Hide": another fitting tribute to one of AOR music giants.

While Luppi's astounding vocals can be described as Mark Free meets Eric Martin, LOS ANGELES is a true AOR beauty which is a must for all the Melodic Rock  fans!
