Here is the MTM press release just recieved regarding GÖRAN EDMAN related project Crossfade:-
CROSSFADE - “White On Blue” (Release: 05.04.2004)
”White On Blue” is supposed to be one of the most wonderful westcoast albums ever recorded! The swedish band consists of well known and experienced musicians and producers and the album sounds like a monster production! First of all there is Göran Edman on vocals (YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, STREET TALK, KHARMA, MADISON), Per Lindval on drums and percussion played with everyone that´s something in Scandinavia and is considered to be the best drummer up there. He works with everybody from ABBA to Michael Ruff, singer songwriters to Big Band and he´s been touring lately with A-HA. Sven Lindvall on Bass also a session player and producer, also tours with A-HA at the moment. Lars Hallbäck on guitars has played in bands since the 70`s when he was in Hard Rock acts, during the 80´s AOR type band and founder of CROSSFADE together with Richard. Also worked in studios, as producer and engineer and engineered and Produced the ”White On Blue” album together with Richard. Richard Stenström on keyboards is one of the best keyboardplayers and he has also played in a lot of sessions. There are a lot of more musicians (vocals, horn section) involved into CROSSFADE which will be introduced later. CROSSFADE is a absolute highlight !
