Album Notes
As the follow-up to Epic Symphony in A Flat Minor, these songs bridge the gap between my past songwriting in bands and my newer focus on instrumentals and classical music. Rise Above is brand new and falls in line nicely with the Epic Symphony tunes, featuring string and piano arrangements in the second half and varying themes throughout. The Duel is just that - a frenetic call-and-response guitar battle that I'd written over the course of several years, beginning well before the Epic Symphony was even conceived. The total package is heavier in its rock and prog elements but no less dramatic.

As before, programmed drums and arrangements are played alongside live guitar and bass lines. The album is available for download on the Rock Band Network on Xbox 360 and is sure to please those looking for a stiff challenge. I'm blessed to have been successful enough with my last release to give it another go, and for that I can't thank everybody enough. Thanks for listening!
