    The Week In Reviews -Micha Schellhaas

    in Music

    Much to the excitement of guitarists worldwide, guitar virtuoso Micha Schellhaas will be releasing his full-length debut album “Double Take” on December 1st. The album features Supertramp guitar legend Carl Verheyen and drummer Chad Wakerman, who is best known for his work with Frank Zappa and Allan Holdsworth.

    Says Micha, “ ‘Double Take’, my first full length release, reflects my relationship with the US and my journey to come and in the end live here. After I was already established in Europe with steady gigs and my own recording studio, the artist in me was still not happy and I needed to go and check out the source and birthplaces of the music and ‘sound’ I was most inspired by: Jazz, Blues and Rock. My first trip was a 3 month driving loop starting and ending in NYC all the way through New Orleans, Austin, LA, San Francisco and back. Songs like ‘Travel Song’ and ‘Texaleans’ reflect that time. Later I lived in Austin/Texas for a while and you can hear that ‘Stevie Ray’ sound in my songs ‘Ford F-150’ and ‘Your Turn’ that also features a blazing solo by Carl Verheyen. Now living in LA more fusion influences came back to my writing in compositions like ‘Velocity’ and ‘5&6’.”

    ProRock composer and producer Robert McClung joins PMPChannel to talk about Telergy's newest epic musical adventure, Hypatia. Telergy is currently conducting an IndieGoGo campaign to raise the $4000 required to produce and press the album. Telergy's first epic musical release was Exodus followed by Legend of Goody Cole. Both fantastic tellings of their stories with music and spoken word. Hypatia is another project that takes a story from history and translates into progrock and voice acting, featuring a amazing array of talents: 

    Durga McBroom-Hudson (Pink Floyd, Blue Pearl)

    Scott Page (Pink Floyd, Toto, Supertramp)

    Oliver Wakeman (Yes)

    David Ragsdale (Kansas)
