Rock Emporium 2 will also include many familiar musicians appearing on the first album release from 2016. Already a number of powerful melodic rock songs have been written & plans are being made for live shows in Europe (Italy, Greece & Holland) in the spring of 2021. More news coming soon!
After finishing 11 European support shows with Graham Bonnet as special guest singer for Bodyguerra (the project from German guitarist Guido Stoecker) I co-wrote a number of songs writing lyrics creating the vocal melodies for Bodyguerra’s 2nd killer-album entitled ‘SOLID’.
This one really rocks
My friends Guido and Peter Gotz recorded the basic tracks at Peter’s Studio in Germany and I did all the vocal tracks at & lyrics at my home studio NSMP in the Netherlands.
It was a real pleasure to create the vocal melodies in cooperation Guido & Peter and fingers crossed “Solid” with Bodyguerra’s new vocalist will be released soon.
Since late 2016 Ian co-wrote songs and recorded lead and backing vocals for the debut album from Swedish band VON BALTZER.
The band are putting the finishing touches to the final mix, and hope to have released sometime around Mid 2018. For more details join Von Baltzer on facebook via https://www.facebook.com/VnBaltzer
