Q: Love your song-MARCH OF Aachen-How long did it take you to record-and how long has your band Awaken* been together?
A: hey Morris/Roberts.... thanks for the question. The song march of Aachen was the last song written on the CD, in fact, I thought about having an instrumental on the album but everyone believes having an instrumental song is a bad idea. So, I took it one step further and said screw it lets open the 1st Awaken CD with one.... a bold move some would say but I think it did the job... The song and the CD was recorded over a 3 year time span. 1 year to write, arrange and tweek all the compositions, then pre production, then the actual recording. This CD was an important one for me as I was making a statement to rid myself of a number of musicians and my old band Lazarus. I am playing Rhythm Guitar on all the tracks, acoustic guitar, keyboards, all vocals, I wrote the entire CD and did the artwork also. The band Awaken began in 2009 officially and I have been through 6 musicians to get to this current line up which I feel is the best yet. The CD was picked up by Mausoleum records in 2011 and released in June of 2012. We toured in support of the CD over 2 years opening for Queensryche, Fates warning, Michael Schenker, Adrenaline Mob, Lynch Mob, UFO, etc.... Now I finished writing 10 new tunes and am in pre production for a new CD to be released in 2015... already we are booked with Uriah heep and Y&T for a leg of shows in spring 2015. Thanks for your question and all your support. any further questions about the recording or the band please don't hesitate to ask.
