SemiStone Media are pleased to announce that we’ve been commissioned to produce promotional videos for 4 tracks from the forthcoming solo album by ex-SAGA vocalist Rob Moratti.
Having recently worked with him on the video production for the track ‘All Your Own Way’ from the impressive new Rage of Angels album ’The Devil’s New Tricks’ we’re delighted to be involved in the promotion of his new solo album.
Mixed and Mastered by Richard Chycki (Aerosmith, Dream Theater, Rush) ‘Transcendent’ is his new solo album and features Torben Enevoldsen on guitars, Fredrik Bergh on keyboards, Tony Franklin on bass and Stu Reid on Drums.
Canadian singer Rob Moratti has had a varied career to date, he first appeared as a songwriter and lead vocalist in the early 90’s for the band “Moratti” and two fine albums were recorded “Desolation” in 1995 and “Legends of Tomorrow” in 1997.
He then took centre stage in the band “Final Frontier” alongside Mladen from Von Groove, a band that went on to record 4 albums and gained a cult following in Europe and Japan. The band played exciting hard melodic rock set apart by Rob’s powerful vocals.
In 2008 Rob was chosen to replace Michael Sadler in the band “Saga”, a fine accolade indeed, and he featured on the 2009 album “Human Condition” as well as touring extensively with the band. Sadler returned to Saga and so Rob went on to record a solo project “Victory” in 2011 with Escape Music. “Victory” had an impressive line-up that included Reb Beach (Whitesnake) and Tony Franklin (The Firm/Blue Murder). The album was an instant success and has since become a firm favourite with fans all around the world.
Recently Rob recorded a fine tribute to the band “Journey”, the band that influenced him greatly in his youth, this recording was limited to 1000 numbered units and has since sold out. In addition he provided vocals for the Rage of Angels CD “The Devil’s New Tricks”, an album that really sees his vocals reach new heights.
That brings us to 2016 and Rob has completed his second solo outing “Transcendent” which sees him giving his best performance yet, his vocals have never sounded better as he sings his heart out throughout all 13 tracks. This is Melodic Rock at its very best and with band members that include Torben Enevoldsen and Tony Franklin we are set for a real treat. Guesting on guitar is Saga’s own Michael Crichton, exciting times indeed. Rob’s career is starting to really take shape, this is one monster album.
