Neverending White Lights is a groundbreaking collaborative project, band, and conceptual album series from recording artist & producer Daniel Victor. With three releases to date, Victor has incorporated artists from many different groups across the globe to help interpret his style of ethereal-alternative music. His brooding, melodic songwriting has shed new light on a wide array of voices in the industry and created a unique experience for listeners. In the later stages of producing and writing, Victor has turned more to using his own voice to portray the heart of the material, as the project continues to shift and reveal itself in new ways. There is no way to accurately describe, solidify, or pigeonhole Neverending White Lights. It would be like trying to catch a ghost, or put a dream in your back pocket. It's not possible. Some things don't need defining. The journey here is about music, and only that.
Salute is the new project from Last Autumn's Dream vocalist Mikael Erlandsson (voice: melodic, gritty and raspy, with strength and range) Sweden's best answer Bryan Adams. On board with him is fine guitarist and producer Martin Kronlund (DogFace, Gypsy Rose, White Wolf). If you dig anything and everything from LAD, you will love Salute's debut Toy Soldier. Toy Soldier is well composed and performed solid melodic hard rock from two individuals who know how to do it.
Unexpectedly, Texas became a popular sensation prior to the release of White on Blonde when Chris Evans made the soulful single "Say What You Want" the de facto theme song on his morning program on Radio 1. On the strength of his support, Texas was catapulted to previously unthinkable success, and the majority of the fans who thought the number one single was fine shouldn't have been disappointed with the full-length album. A combination of roots-rock and soul, White on Blonde occasionally has more style than substance, but Sharleen Spiteri's gorgeous vocals and the band's professionalism make the record a charming, ingratiating listen.
