RENAISSANCE ROCK ORCHESTRA : The Ice Age Cometh
Release Date: 26th May 2023
Produced and Composer by Keyboards
Gregg Fox comes from a very talented and musical background. He started playing piano at just 5 years old and then into his teens he discovered rock music. Gregg has always loved classical music and the sound of symphonies / orchestras and, indeed, played violin in his high school years.
The influence of Deep Purple, ELP, Jethro Tull and Yes guided Gregg to his niche in the world of music and these bands along with Led Zeppelin became his inspiration. Gregg was originally in a Seattle based Prog rock group called Icarus and they recorded music in the vein of Kansas, Styx and Yes, where he met guitarist Howard Leese and worked with him for some time.
After taking a break from music at the start of 2000 he started writing music in 2007 that would form the basis of the RRO and after playing with huge rock musicians like Carmine Appice, Paul Shortino, Chris Slade and Doug Aldrich he was inspired to form the RRO and write two records with Mikey Bones, who has sadly passed since.
“The Ice Age Cometh” is the latest recording from RRO and it is a fantastic symphonic / rock orchestral recording that fans of the Trans Siberian Orchestra would relate to. This really is a tremendous opus full of grand moments and excellent compositions.
