Feel-good melodic rock is how Morano describe describe this CD, trying to capture everything he loved about the music of his youth: ’80 arena rock. Loud guitars, soaring vocals, and songs that told stories about life.
To help him in this mission Morano assembled a stellar supporting cast yo fie for: Tyketto’s Danny Vaughn, Extreme’s Pat Badger and Kevin Figueiredo, Firehouse’s Michael Foster and Bill Leverty, XYZ’s Terry Ilouis, The Firm / Blue Murder’s Tony Franklin, and Alice Cooper’s guitarist Nita Strauss, among others.
The recordings have been produced by Bill Leverty (of Firehouse) with many of the album guitar tones being crafted by legendary producer, Michael Wagener.
