DON AIREY TO RELEASE NEW STUDIO ALBUM ONE OF A KIND ON MAY 25 ON earMUSIC
 
In these days where everybody seems to want to show off at every given occasion, Don Airey is without a doubt One of a Kind.
 
It is hard to find a name amongst all those that over the last 30 years have left their mark in the history of rock that has not utilised Don's keyboard skills at some point. Amongst them Ozzy Osbourne, Rainbow, Whitesnake, Judas Priest, Gary Moore, Brian May, Jethro Tull, Black Sabbath and, obviously, Deep Purple, the band of which Don Airey has been a full time member for over 15 years.
 
But Don Airey has never been a session player. Bands and artists work with him for his unique musical vision, for the twist he gives to songs. It is with the same passion, the same energy, the same talent that Don Airey approaches his very own songwriting.
 
One of a Kind is a true classic hard rock gem with melodies, great riffs and solos and a unique band unity. To top it all, his new solo album has been written and recorded using the spirit of a band featuring the following talented musicians: Carl Sentance (from the current lineup of British legends Nazareth) is a singer that all fans of metal voices like those of Rob Halford and Graham Bonnet will love; Bassist Laurence Cottle, who has played with everyone from Black Sabbath, to Gary Moore, to Chick Corea, forges a great rhythm section with the thunderous talent of Jon Finnigan, apparently as loud on stage as he is at the after show parties. Last but definitely not least, there is the incredible talent of Simon McBride, who has no fear of being compared to the many incredible guitar players Don has worked with before.
 
One of a Kind is one song after the other for the delight of every hard rock fan, who would be making a big mistake were they to overlook this album.

It will be released on May 25, 2018 on earMUSIC as 2CD including a bonus live CD as well as via vinyl and digitally.

It is not difficult to see Don Airey playing one day with Deep Purple in front of 15,000 people, and the next day, playing the organ in the church of his beloved local village with the same concentration and respect for the music and the audience.

It is with the same spirit that Don shows no discernible effort moving from the glories of the last two Deep Purple albums (NOW What?! and inFinite both having benefitted from his ever present talent) to playing in clubs with his own band. And always with a big smile on his face as soon as the guitar roars in, waiting to reply with his Hammond.

Keyboard Legend Don Airey Launches His Pre-Sale Campaign on PledgeMusic For 'K2 - Tales of Triumph And Tragedy' Limited Edition Box Set! 
 
London - Deep Purple and rock keyboard legend Don Airey has launched a pre-sale campaign on PledgeMusic for a very special limited edition Deluxe Box Set of his solo album 'K2 - Tales of Triumph & Tragedy,' to be released on Gonzo Multimedia in June 2017!
 
'K2' was recorded in 1988 at Sarm East Studios, London, and originally released worldwide on MCA Records. An article written by mountaineer Jim Curran about his harrowing experiences on the 1986 expedition to K2 that claimed the life of 12 climbers inspired it. The music was completed after Don met Jim at his house in Sheffield where he talked of his friends Al Rouse and Julie Tullis, who both died in a blizzard at the summit having become the first UK climbers to conquer the peak. 
 
The album also features guest appearances by Gary Moore, Cozy Powell, Colin Bluntstone, Chris Thompson and others!
 
There will only be 100 of this deluxe Box Set manufactured and each will contain a signed and numbered certificate. There will also be additional signed items and exclusive merchandise as part of this pre-order campaign.
