Second album called “FOREVER FREE” from the Italian guitarist, songwriter and producer STEFANO VIANA is set for release on January 25th, on ESCAPE MUSIC.
Stefano Viana has already caused a stir with his first album “Viana” (2017) which received very positive reviews. Following his passion with enthusiasm Stefano contacted singer and producer Bryan Cole (Giant, Steel City, solo artist) and started to work on new material. The music was recorded in a studio like in the “good old days” and this has made a great impact on the end result as the musicians have bonded and made a richer sound.
The new album features some great musicians such as Terry Brock and Francesco Marras and also boasts the talents of great American guitar player John Roth from Giant, Winger and Starship.
Including 10 strong tracks with no filler, this album offer just great melodic hard rock played with passion and flair.
