Back To Eden
Frontier/Now And Then Records
This is it! This is the record of the year! just making the last quarter of 2001 is Back To Eden, Terry Brocks first solo record and its a monster! Who is Terry Brock? Truth is youve heard his voice a thousand times on the radio in commercials and other ads. His friendly tenor has been compared to such melodic heavyweights as Journeys Steve Perry and Rainbows Joe Lynn Turner, but with his current release, he stands rightly on his own with passion and flare.
At the tender age of nineteen, Atlanta native Brock got his first taste of the stage singing, then touring with Kansas on their "Drastic Measures" tour. I was young and naive to the whole business, says Brock from his New York home, but I learned fast about the rock n roll road life. Brock says his Kansas experience led him to working with the Johnny Van Zant Band (later to front Lynyrd Skynyrd), then joined New York band Network. However it was his feature appearance on the Le Roux classic All Fired Up that brought worldwide attention and an overseas invitation.
In 1985 Brock teamed up with the Scottish outfit Strangeways that moved him front and center. When I joined Strangeways it was a one off thing, says Brock. They sat me down and said, We want to make a Journey-sounding album, can you do it? With producer John Punter at the helm Brock launched Strangeways to the most successful recording of their career. They toured Europe gaining the reputation as one of the UKs top bands.
After returning home to New York, Brock fell into the comfort of commercial studio work. He has sung on over 100 US national commercials and dozens of albums including last years stellar Signs Of Life (from The Sign - a supergroup of sorts with Mark Mangold, Randy Jackson, Billy Greer, and Bobby Rondinelli).
Back To Eden returns Brock to the the soaring heights of melodic rock fully equipped with razor-sharp songs and gorgeous melodies. Among the highlights are "I Wanna Love Someone", "Native Sons","Back To Eden", "Up All Night", "Forever Now" and "Another Chance".
