WINDGELS - Between Dreams And Reality (2007/8)

Here we have a talented new promising band from Argentina.
Yes, great music doesn't know boundaries.
The group recorded a very professional demo, melodic hard rock / AOR full of melody, catchy choruses and great musicianship.
Their stuff is right now being sent to international labels.
Are we here in presence of the next new sensation?
They have the potential, trust me.

Hernan Reynoso (bass player), sent me the music and artwork to share with you, give 'em a chance, worth it.
Check their MySpace page, with extra tracks added.
This band ROCKS.

KYLE VINCENT - Trust (1993)

Unknown to the big audiences, not for the AOR global lovers, this is the first Kyle's album, recorded in 1992 and never officially released (some sources mention it was released in limited press only in Japan, 1993) until last year with a couple bonus tracks.
Also exists a '99 bootleg edition with different name.

His subsequent albums turns more into soul/pop territory, but this one is a real gem of melodic-rock-pop in the vein of Rick Springfield, Kenny Loggins, Richard Marx or even the earlier Brian Adams.
Sweet and warm voice, beautiful melodies, nice lyrics.

Top notch production: monster AOR legend Clif Magness, Steve Levine and Kyle himself.
A song co-written with another AOR icon; Steve Kipner.
Top class studio musicians: Tim Pierce, Gilby Clarke, Freddie Washington (K. Loggins band), JR Johnson (M. Jackson band) and more.

Recommended listen.If you like it, try to find (not easy) one re-editon copy, and BUY IT.
