The SKYSCRAPER line up is articulated around the guitarist/Songwriter Tor Talle (NORTHERN LIGHT) who had previous played with the top of the cream of the AOR singers : Jorn Lande / Joe Lynn Turner / Fergie Frederiksen (R.I.P.) / Rob Moratti or Steve Overland. His talent of composition is more than obvious. This superb songwriting capacity is only equaled by his juicy tone. Even if he’s far from the guitar hero extravaganza, indeed he adopted quite a discreet profile but his impeccable yet still perfectly convincing melodic potential is fully translated into the recording.
The other founding member is the exSHY singer Lee Small (exNATIVE CAIN / exCLOVEN HOOF / exSURVEILLANCE / OMEGA ) who’s singing his heart out (“Fay Wray”), and reveals once again here his soulful voice in the great Glenn Hughes (CALIFORNIA BREED / exTRAPEZE / exDEEP PURPLE / HUGHES & THRALL / HTP / ex B.C.C. ) tradition. The vocal similarities are manifest and a blessing, his singing only, is in my opinion worth enough to justify the buying of the album with closed ears (“Sweet Little Sister”), but the real asset of this new combo is the superb coherency of this duo built under a fine combination that blends creativity with skills and a true savoir faire!
The pair of experienced veterans is seconded by Bassist Dave Boyce (AIRRACE / THE QUIREBOYS) and Imre Daun who had performed drums with legendary Swedish AOR band DON PATROL and also recorded a batch of recommended albums such as UNION MAC / RADIO SILENCE / OVERLAND / PHENOMENA a usual session player in the projects related with Martin Kronlund .
