Frédéric Slama AOR's 2nd album featuring demos from the 80's and 90's. The album have a typical Westcoast sound though most of the songs will be re-recorded years later for different AOR's cds.
In 2009,the magic trio was back: Frédéric Slama,Tommy Denander & Philip Bardowell (The Beach Boys, Places Of Power) 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), David Williams (Michael Jackson, George Benson) & many more, Frédéric delivered 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 remastered AOR reissue from 2003 featuring members of TOTO, Chicago, Tommy Denander, Steve Overland, David Roberts, Dane Donohue & the cream of musicians from the Melodic Rock / AOR scene !
Already the 14th release from French producer/songwriter Frederic Slama and possibly one of the strongest releases so far. As usual with first class singers like Bob Harris (Axe), Jesse Damon, Paul Sabu, Tommy Funderburk & Erika. French composer Frédéric Slama, playing guitar as well keyboards continuously gathers an illustrious bunch of singers foremost to make his vision of classic AOR/Melodic Rock reality.
On May 23rd Avenue Of Allies release "Next Stop", the much anticipated second album by the Swedish AOR band Sonic Station. While perfect arrangements and production values of the highest order are still a trademark of the songs of guitarist, composer and producer Alexander Kronbrink and his band, the music is now focusing on the AOR side of Sonic Station. The powerful tunes have a more upbeat feeling and give more room to the guitars and with most of the musicians performing on all songs, the recordings carry the spirit of a real band performance rather than having the nature of a high profile studio project like the self-titled debut from 2012.
Frédéric Slama’ s AOR all star project is back with album n° 15th, showcasing the darkier & more melodic sides of AOR with the help of top producers Tommy Denander & Paul Sabu.

Maybe the most Melodic Rock album of all AOR cds.
