Signal Red made their mark in 2018 with the release of “Under the Radar”. The band is made up of outstanding musicians principally Guitarist Steve Grocott and Vocalist Lee Small. The collaboration first came together in February, 2013 when Steve was at a loose end. He had been in a band previously called “Sevendayz” which had recently folded and he contacted Lee as he had heard so much about him, mainly from the self-titled SHY album that appeared in 2011. The two hit it off straight away and it seemed inevitable that an album would follow.

Steve got caught up working with the UK band “Ten” as Gary Hughes asked him to be in the bands line-up for some shows and to feature on the new album, so the debut Signal Red release was halted for a while. Eventually Steve’s time freed up so he could once again concentrate on new material for the album and the whole thing has just progressed into a fantastic recording.

The collaboration with Lee is clearly a good match as Lee has already proved his worth with “Shy” more recently “Lionheart” as well as solo albums, the Phenomena project and rock band “Snowfall”.

Lee is a very soulful, melodic vocalist and his voice suits Signal Red perfectly. The debut caused quite a stir with its strong melodic rock roots and this new album “Alien Nation” is an extension of that robust rock sound that they have already proved themselves worthy of. We have here 11 tracks of sheer quality and Steve’s playing shines through on all tracks.

A one to watch out for!!!

Steve Overland is a legend in his own lifetime. Is there anyone out there who is not familiar with his name? He has a history that goes way back into the late seventies, his first major recording was with the band “Wildlife” in 1980. After the demise of “Wildlife” Steve went on to form the cult British melodic rock band “FM”, a band that released many great albums throughout the years and they are still going strong to this very day.

Steve originally teamed up with Escape Music to provide lead vocals for the Boston Tribute album (ESM 081), singing 'Amanda', one of the album highlights. Steve also joined forces with Steve Morris of “Heartland” fame to record four “Shadowman” albums, all of which are well respected in the rock community. He has written, recorded and sung so many great songs over the years.

However, let’s get back to Steve’s solo work with Escape Music which began with Break Away” (ESM170), then “Diamond Dealer” (ESM198), “Epic” (ESM262) and “Contagious” (ESM297). So, that means “Scandalous” (ESM343) is Steve’s fifth solo album and what a belter it is too! This man can just seemingly continue to give us breathtakingly good songs with great song writing (Let’s not forget the input of the talented Tommy Denander). This new release for 2020 is also being released on vinyl (limited edition of 300 in “Dracula” colour) and a slightly different track listing from the CD. Exciting news indeed!

Steve Overland just gets better and let’s hope he gives us much more in years to come.

Produced by Gary Moffet (April Wine)
Mastered by Steve Mann  (Michael Schenker / Lionheart)

Track list: Intro (0:12) / Love Thing (3:59) / Let me know (3:48) / When I see you standing there (5:30) / Why in the world (2:55) / Love don’t come easy (3:35) / The Promise (5:09)

Simon Says hail from Greenfield Park, Quebec, Canada and were formed from the ashes of Spectrum and Rawx. This energetic six piece originally had a following in the early 90’s when “spin this” was first released with just seven tracks. It has since become a collector’s item in its original form (attracting a high price!) but here is new package on Escape music with another 6 bonus tracks! All songs have the full remastering treatment with both new and old artwork!

Simon Says’ calling card is a distinctive high-energy Pop-Rock sound that grabbed you upon first listen. It was that sound that easily ignited a devoted following back in the day, garnering them national interest, and leading them to become a top draw across their home province, country and even as far away as Puerto Rico and St Thomas, VI.  Simon Says’ debut release, ‘Spin This,’ and most notably the single, “The Promise,” enjoyed extensive airplay on Montreal’s premier rock station, CHOM-FM. The rest of the music on the cd showcased the band’s musical diversity, proving on tunes such as “Love Thing,” “When I See You Standing There,” and “Love Don’t Come Easy,” Simon Says were ready, willing and able to be a force in the music world.   

Escape Music with its wide array of artists, and its desire to bring back a classic rock sound, is the perfect resting place for Simon Says as they chart their way toward greater public awareness. At the same time with Rock radio stations now reaching back to program a sound forgotten by time, the driving rhythms, and addictive melodies of Simon Says are a launching pad to growing a listening audience.  

So ‘who is Simon Says’? The answer lies within the notes, chords and lyrics. Whether you’ve heard them before or you’re hearing them for the first time, you will be more than ready to spin these songs repeatedly.
