KEE OF HEARTS is a new band built around two true melodic rock superstars: Tommy Heart, singer of Fair Warning and Kee Marcello, former Europe guitarist. With a line-up rounded out by Ken Sandin (Alien) on bass and Italian drummer Marco Di Salvia (Pino Scotto), the guys started working on the album in late 2016.
 
With their songwriting strongly focused on melodic rock songs, the album came to completion under the direction of producer Alessandro Del Vecchio (Revolution Saints, Hardline, JORN). It covers a wide spectrum of styles with much attention given to crafting great hooks masterfully played by musicians that know how to deliver the goods!
Musically, the band operates in a territory defined by Scandinavian AOR meeting German melodic hard rock with influences from the classic U.S. AOR giants (think Giant, Journey, etc.). All in all, another unbeatable melodic rock release from Frontiers!

KEE MARCELLO 'Scaling Up' in October on Frontiers

Artist: 
Friday, October 14, 2016
Categories: 

Frontiers Music Srl proudly announces the release date of KEE MARCELLO's new studio album 'Scaling Up' on October 14th.

With 'Scaling Up', Kee Marcello is using his past as a springboard to take a giant leap into the future! With the new music firmly grounded in the songwriting tradition that made him a multi-platinum rock star in the first place, Kee explores the boundaries of melodic hard rock with a contemporary performance that nods to his past and employs sizzling production. This is an album all his fans will have to pick their jaws up off the floor after hearing!

Kee Marcello is a unique artist in the hard rock genre. He has never stopped evolving and growing as both a writer and a guitarist and the new album illustrates how much he has managed to raise the bar yet again with both his guitar playing, singing and writing.

Conceived and recorded in the winter and spring of 2016, "Scaling Up" encompasses all the influences and genres in which the Swedish musician has been involved in since the start of his career. Besides the obvious resemblances to Europe's classic sound, Kee also gives a nod to his past in Easy Action. Speaking of Europe (particularly the 'Prisoners in Paradise' era), Kee took two officially unreleased songs, 'Wild Child' and 'Don't Know How To Love No More', and re-arranged and re-recorded them from scratch. Beyond those two tracks, you can hear a touch of sleaze and more classic hard rock on songs like 'Fix Me', 'Blow by Blow', and 'Soldier Down'.

Kee Marcello says: 'The whole idea of 'Scaling Up' is to, very respectfully, use the music of my past as a canvas to paint a picture of where I stand today and what I aim for in the future as a guitarist/singer/writer. I think we've got the balance of now and then just right, and it's performed by the best group of musicians I've ever had the honor of playing with!"

Kee Marcello is one of the most renowned guitarists from Scandinavia and has an amazing history to his name. He's best known as the guitarist - from 1986 to 1992 - of one Sweden's biggest musical exports, Europe. In the late '80s and early '90s, Europe were one of the biggest rock bands in the world. They sold over 30 million albums, landed at #1 on sales charts in 26 countries and shared the biggest stages with acts like Metallica, Def Leppard and Bon Jovi. Kee is now also enjoying a new wave of success as a TV persona in Sweden, as well as being involved in other musical projects.

KEE MARCELLO Signs To Frontiers

Artist: 
Categories: 

Frontiers Music Srl is excited to announce the signing of KEE MARCELLO for the release of a new album in the fall of 2016!
 
Kee Marcello is best known for his time as the guitar player in the band EUROPE from 1986 to 1992 on such milestone albums as 'Out of this World' and 'Prisoners in Paradise'. With this new album, Kee intends to go back to the sound that helped him make his mark. Expect some amazing arena rock songs, which he he started working on at the end of 2015.
 
Kee says: 'I'm really excited about this album. I'm making a new departure from the 'Le Baron Boys' era, bringing it into the future. I've always felt that there was something magic about the material that Sony mysteriously refused to release on PIP, and now the time has come to put things right. It's time to complete my 'unfinished symphony'. This is the album that Europe never managed to record after Prisoners In Paradise. The songs will have a very familiar ring for everyone who loves that era. And as a homage to all the faithful fans I've recorded two previously unreleased Le Baron Boys tracks on the album.With one foot in the past and one in the present I think this album will raise a lot of eyebrows - not to mention HORNS!'.
 
Kee is making plans for a full European tour in support of the new release. Stay tuned for more details!
