Steve Walsh

New album ready!

STEVE WALSH

 

Frontiers Records and Muse-Wrapped Records announce a long-term strategic alliance with a new and very exciting signing: the new studio album from none other than Steve Walsh.

 

The keyboardist/vocalist/songwriter/producer is best known for his visionary work with US progressive rock masters KANSAS. He sings lead on Kansas' biggest and best-known hits -- "Carry On Wayward Son", "Dust In The Wind" and "Point Of Know Return".

 

Entitled “Shadowman” with his third solo album, Steve Walsh unveils another landmark of creativity. With the collaboration of such musicians as Joe Franco (Twisted Sister, Magellan) on drums, Joel Kosche (Collective Soul) on guitars and bass and with former Kansas David Ragsdale on violin on the song “After” and Symphony X’s mastermind Michael Romeo caring for the orchestration on "After", "Shadowman" and "Hell is Full of Heroes", Steve Walsh reaches a new height in his artistic expression focusing on a great songwriting and superb production (courtesy of Shawn Grove also of Collective Soul fame).

Muse-Wrapped Records will release the album in the USA through Bayside Entertainment Distribution, while Frontiers Records release the album worldwide outside the United States

Shadowman”’ release date has been set worldwide on July 4th 2005.
