Robin McAuley's new solo album, “Standing on the Edge" showcases the desire of the respected Irish rock singer to make a strong musical statement in a period that was more creative than ever for him! After reemerging on the recording side of the music industry with guest spots on Michael Schenker Fest albums and fronting the hard rock supergroup Black Swan, McAuley is feeling invigorated and ready to explore even more creative output, letting the world see that his voice is as powerful as ever.
McAuley is widely recognized as one of the great singers of a golden period in hard rock music. His voice can be heard on albums from Grand Prix and Far Corporation, and of course on the chart topping MSG records “Perfect Timing,” “Save Yourself,” and “MSG”. Through these releases, he was introduced to hard rock fans around the globe, who no doubt recognized the inherent talent and skill in his vocal abilities. Since departing MSG, he released one solo record in 1999, then joined AOR legends Survivor, and then re-grouped with Schenker in Michael Schenker Fest on their recent records "Resurrection" and "Revelation". And of course, in what was an absolute revelation to hard rock fans around the world, in 2020, he came out swingin' as the frontman of the supergroup BLACK SWAN, where he joined forces with Reb Beach (Whitesnake, Winger), Jeff Pilson (Foreigner, ex-Dokken), and Matt Starr (Ace Frehley, Mr Big).
McAuley spent the latter half of 2020 working on a new solo record, one which truly encompasses all music styles he is known for. Hard Rock and Melodic Rock superbly performed as only he can do it. Envisioned, overseen, and creatively directed by Serafino Perugino, President and A&R director of Frontiers Records with production (and co-writing) by Alessandro Del Vecchio, McAuley offers up a true gem of an album in “Standing on the Edge". Included are a splendid songwriting collaborations with his former Grand Prix bandmate Phil Lanzon (currently longtime Uriah Heep keyboardist) on “Like a Ghost”, Howard Leese (of Bad Company, ex-Heart) on “Supposed To Do Now," and Tommy Denander on “Do You Remember” and "Chosen Few”.
Robin McAuley’s “Standing on the Edge" is an album that will surely thrill and delight melodic hard rock fans in 2021. Stay tuned....
