Tower City

It's a post NEW MONEKEES melodic rock band.
A trio from Cleveland was the secret among all A&R managers of the US major labels - both MCA and Atlantic agreed to release this album, until grunge upset the market. This album combines the best aspects of Bon Jovi, Def Leppard and Giant into a sound all their own. Listening to "A Little Bit of Fire" will remind you that there was life before grunge...

Brother Firetribe

Brother Firetribe is an Album Oriented Rock (AOR) band formed in 2002 in Finland. They describe their music as easy going rock. The band was originally called False Metal, but they changed their name to Brother Firetribe; however, the album is called ‘False Metal’. They take their name from an in-joke as a perfect description for their music is ‘tennis heavy’ and the name of a well known Finnish tennis player Veli Paloheimo translates into English as ‘Brother Firetribe’. The album title ‘False Metal’ comes from a slogan coined by heavy metal group Manowar, ‘Death to False Metal’.

Private Life

More than one artist with that name: 1) Over on the dark side of the moon the rumours have began to swell. Jamie oozes an appetite for destruction as he plays his bass under the skies of purple rain. His uncanny yet supernatural knack on the drums struck an unheard chord building a tapestry of hysteria. Enter Renee. A jagged little pill of feminine randomness – her vocals addictively-educed with a lonely-hearts club attitude. Together under the joshua tree the duo begin to see parallel lines. Their sound the only element needed to build a bridge over troubled water.

Robin Beck

ROBIN BECK first came to prominence singing the Coca-Cola theme tune 'The First Time', scoring a major international hit in the process. Although this was to be the general public's inauguration into the lady's work, Beck had in fact been plugging away on the music scene for quite some time, having issued her debut album, the heavily Disco orientated 'Sweet Talk', in 1979. This soon forgotten opus, featuring backing vocals from no less a figure than Luther Vandross, included a cover version of TODD RUNDGREN's 'Hello It's Me'.
