Flying Colors

It started with a simple idea: virtuoso musicians and a pop singer joining to make new-fashioned music the old fashioned way.

It started with a simple idea: virtuoso musicians and a pop singer joining to make new-fashioned music the old fashioned way. Aband followed, evolving into Flying Colors: Mike Portnoy (drums, vocals), Dave LaRue (bass), Neal Morse (keyboards, vocals), CaseyMcPherson (lead vocals), and Steve Morse (guitar). Together, they create a unique fusion of vintage craftsmanship, contemporarymusic and blistering live performances.

It needed exactly the right musicians. In addition to be being extraordinary players and writers, they would need to be a naturalcreative fit, complementing each others’ abilities. There would be proven chemistry from past collaborations, but the new band wouldbe different from anything they’d done. The world didn’t need another supergroup.

As with the classic albums, there also would be a strong production team who, creatively, would be an extension of the band: avisionary producer, imaginative engineer and compelling visual artist. Though they were seasoned artists with impressivebackgroundsand catalogs, this would be new territory for most of them. And without a budget or a label, they came together with nothing morethan a shared vision to create something special and unique.

All music on the album was composed in a week's worth of writing sessions in January 2011. « hide
