Escape Music are pleased to announce their next release - the new AOR album Journey To LA, due for release in Europe on August 28, produced By Frédéric Slama and Tommy Denander.
Frédéric Slama was born in Paris, France but lived in L.A. for more than 10 years where he became friend with many famous artists & studio players. After releasing a couple of solo albums in the 80's and producing some French and American artists, Frédéric decided to start a "one man band". This marked the birth of his project AOR, always using the cream of U.S session players. Several albums have resulted since and now in 2009, the magic trio is back: Frédéric Slama, Tommy Denander & Philip Bardowell (The Beach Boys, Places Of Power) has teamed up again for a new album Journey To L.A, taking Westcoast and AOR music to a new level of perfection.
With the help of top session players such as Steve Overland (FM), Steve Lukather & Fergie Frederiksen (Toto), Dane Donohue, Bill Champlin (Chicago), Bruno Levesque (Silence), David Williams (Michael Jackson, George Benson) & many more, Frédéric delivers by far his most impressive and melodic work in the vein of Toto, Foreigner or Survivor, mixing elements of Westcoast with more aor rock oriented songs.
Classic Westcoast lovers won't be disappointed too with several songs taking you back to the L.A. music scene of the early 80's. Tommy Denander's production on Journey To L.A is without a doubt one of his finest and the melodies and the solos will haunt you thru' this incredible AOR journey.
