I've always been a big fan of AOR, Melodic rock & Westcoast. I'm also a musician and songwriter. In 2008 my album 'Frozen Rain' has been released by 'Avenue Of Allies Music'. Some of the guests on my album are Tommy Denander, Daniel Flores, Steve Newman, Jim Santos & many more.
Some information about album nr. 2 'Ahead Of time':
Already early on some changes for album no. 2 were considered and eventually put into action. Thus all songs of the album were recorded with a constant band line-up of six musicians, besides Kurt Vereecke (keyboards, bass, acoustic guitar, backing vocals), Jurgen Vitrier (keyboards) and Vincent De Laat (bass) were already on board for the debut album. Strengthening the Belgian party of the “Frozen Rain“ team on „Ahead Of Time“ are Rik Priem (rhythm, solo and acoustic guitars) and Kurt’s brother Hans Vereecke (drums). The position as the front man on the mic stand is now occupied by one of the most distinctive German Rock shouters, Carsten Schulz (Evidence One, Paradise Inc., ex-Domain).
Kurt Vereecke and guitarist Rik Priem worked intensively on the arrangements and the production of the tunes giving them an up-to-date, more guitar-oriented AOR / Melodic Rock sound than the first time around while still securing to give enough space to the keyboards that became a trademark on the “Frozen Rain“ debut. Rik’s virtuoso guitar play and the decision to have Carsten as the sole lead vocalist on all songs are a tremendous gain for “Frozen Rain“. In addition the songs sound tighter and more powerful thanks to the consistent line-up of musicians that delivers a real band feel on each cut and the refining of the material through the mix by Alessandro Del Vecchio (Edge Of Forever, Eden’s Curse, Shining Line, Lionville) and the mastering by Dennis Ward (Unisonic, Pink Cream 69, Sunstorm).

Thanx for joining me, I´m very pleased and I check your songs. They are the way I like AOR, or the way I like called "hAORd", harder than most AOR showed here. Fresh, melodic and a bit pushing to shake bodies. Glad to know more ahead from you!.
