Debut album entitled “X Marks The Spot“ from Art Of Illusion will be released through AOR Heaven in Europe in January 29th. *Japan Release date: February 3rd through Marquee Avalon.
Art Of Illusion is a fusion of songwriter/producer Anders Rydholm, from the band Grand Illusion, and singer extraordinaire Lars Säfsund, from the band Work Of Art. “X Marks the Spot” is the first album from these Swedish musicians.
Track list: 1. Wild and free 2. Run 3. My loveless lullaby 4. Waltz for the movies 5. 4 AM 6. Go 7. Snakebite charm 8. Let the games begin 9. A culinary detour 10. Catch you if I can 11. Rampant wildfire 12. Race against time
Melody is the key in their music and there is a homage to melodic rock and bands like Queen, Giant and Big Money. Catchy melodies, great hooks and tons of glorious vocals are the formula for success. Anders plays keyboards, bass and rhythm guitars, while Lars sings lead and background vocals and also contributes some keyboards. The album is produced by Anders and Lars.
Guests on the album are guitarists Jay Graydon, Muris Varajic, Kristian Larsen, Pelle Holmberg and Daniel Rydholm. Drummer Frank ”Frallan” Nilsson, background vocalist Per Svensson and steel guitar player Tony Paoletta also appear. Music is written by Anders Rydholm. Lyrics by Anders Rydholm, Arlene Matza-Jackson and Patrik Ahlm.
