PROJECTED LOVE ALWAYS & FOREVER”

IT’S AMAZING 24 YEARS HAVE PASSED SINCE WE MUSIC FANS HEARD FROM MUSIC ICON & LEGEND STEVE PERRY OF FAMED MUSIC ROCK BAND AND 1996 WITH THEIR SONG “WHEN YOU LOVE A WOMAN’ IT WAS OVER THE DREAM, THE SOUND, THE SMOOTH AND SEXUAL LOVE BALLADS OF LEAD SINGER STEVE PERRY AND JONATHON CAIN. WITH THAT CHAPTER OF HIS LIFE CLOSED & A GREATEST HITS PACKAGE WHICH CONTAINED THE SONGS OF STEVE’S SOLO EFFORTS, THIS PACKAGE BEGIN TO FADE INTO MUSIC HISTORY, SO DID THE STEVE PERRY SOUND. STEVE’S FORMER MUSICAL BROTHERS REFORMED THE BAND JOURNEY WITH A NEW LEAD SINGER, WHICH SOUNDED REMARKABLY LIKE STEVE’S VOCALS, AND TOURED WITH THE NAME OF JOURNEY, SINGING ALL THE FAVORITES BUT AS A LONG TIME FAN AND FOLLOWER OF STEVE PERRY IT JUST WASN’T STEVE PERRY AND JOURNEY. I STILL BELIEVED IN THE POWER OF STEVE’S INCREDIBLE VOCAL RANGE AND THE MAGNITUDE OF HIS SUPERB WRITING SKILLS WOULD RETURN ONE DAY. WELL 24 YEARS LATER THIS DAY HAS ARRIVED STEVE PERRY RELEASED A SOLO PROJECT ENTITLED “TRACES”, AND WHAT AN INCREDIBLE ALBUM IT IS. IF YOU ARE A FAN OF STEVE PERRY HE HAS NOT LOST HIS MAGICAL AND POWERFUL WAY AROUND A BALLAD AND LOVE SONGS THAT TRULY SPEAK FROM THE HEART. THE FIRST TRACK CALLED “NO ERASIN’ ” AND STEVE IS INCREDIBLE HIS VOICE CRISP AND VIBRANT AS I RECALL, AND MY DREAM HAS COME TO REALITY WITH THIS INCREDBILE SONG THAT HAS STEVE’S SIGNITURE OF LOVE ALL OVER IT. WITH THIS COMES THE NEXT SONG CALLED “WE’RE STILL HERE’ AND THIS SONG IS JUST AS INCREDIBLE AS THE PREVIOUS, THE ABILITIES OF STEVE PERRY ARE EVIDENT THROUGHOUT & THIS SONG & THE ENTIRE ALBUM, REFLECTS AN REAL IMAGE AND EMOTION OF A TRUE STEVE PERRY AND JOURNEY SONG. THE LAST TWO SONGS AND THE WHOLE ALBUM IN IT’S ENTIRETY REALLY REACHES PLACES IN THE HEART, WHERE ONLY STEVE PERRY HAS THAT ABILITYTO TOUCH. THE ALBUM IS AN INCREDIBLE EAR CANDY PIECE OF MUSIC AND FLOWS SMOOTHLY AND REFINED AND POLISHED LIKE A GEM OF DIAMONDS AND GOLD. THE NEXT SONG HAS THIS CALLED “MOST OF ALL” AS A STEVE PERRY FAN AND MUSIC PUBLICIST JOURNALIST THE MUSICALITY IS NON STOP ON THIS ALBUM & REALLY SHOWCASES STEVE AT HIS BEST. WITH THIS IN MIND, THE NEXT SONG “NO MORE CRYIN” I FELT STEVE’S VOCALS POURING OUT WITH EMOTION AND TOTAL REFLECTION OF HIS HEART FELT FEELINGS WITHIN HIS AMAZING AND ONCE AGAIN HIS ABILITY TO SHOW AND SING OF LOVE IS SUPERB. AS I LISTENED TO THE NEXT SONG “IN THE RAIN” THE SONG REALLY IS AN AMAZING PIECE OF MUSIC MASTERY AT IT’S BEST, AND STEVE REALLY ALLOWS YOU TO FEEL HIS TRUE EMOTIONAL PLEAS FOR LOVE AND DRAWS YOU IN. THE MUSIC IS AMAZING THE BAND THAT SURROUNDS THESE SONGS UTILIZES STRINGS AND THAT CAREFUL & THOUGHFUL SOUNDS THAT BRING IN A TRUE REMARKABLE SOUND, THAT ALLOW ONE TO REALLY HEAR STEVE’S INCREDIBLE LYRICS AND SMOTHNESS, THIS IS MY PERSONAL FAVORITE ON THE ALBUM, ALTOUGH I MUST SAY THE WHOLE ALBUM HAS GRIPPED ME IN THE MEMORIES OF HOW GREAT IT IS TO HAVE STEVE BACK IN MY SPEAKERS. THE PACE PICKS UP WITH THE NEXT SONG CALLED “SUN SHINES GRAY” AND BRINGS IN A REAL FEEL FOR A ROCK AND ROLL SONG AND IS REMINCIENT OF STEVE’S PREVIOUS SOLO WORK, BUT NONE THE LESS,  HAS A FRESH FEEL TO IT. “YOU BELONG TO ME” THE NEXT SONG ON THIS MIRACULOUS AND AMAZING ALBUM IS ANOTHER REFLECTION OF STEVE’S PAST WORK, HOWEVER WITH THE STRINGS TUCKED WITHIN THE CONFINES OF STEVE’S VOCALS REALLY SHOW STEVE’S MASTERY OF HIS SOLID WRITING ABILITIES AND INCREDIBLE MUSICALITY. THE NEXT SONG CALLED “EASY TO LOVE” BRINGS IN THE ELEMENT OF SMOOTHNESS AND STEVE’S GIFT OF A BLUESY KIND OF FEEL TO IT, IN AN ALMOST “LOVIN’ TOUCHIN’ SQUEEZIN” FEEL TO IT, AND IS REMARKABLE AND POLISHED AND BROUGHT CURRENT RELEVANCY TO MY EARS CONTENTMENT. AS I LISTENED I THOUGHT HOW MUCH STEVE HAS MATURED OVER THE YEARS WITH HIS APROACH IN HIS MUSIC AND HIS TRUE TALENT HAS EVOLVED INTO AN INCREDIBLE PIECE OF TOTAL MUSIC MASTERY AT IT’S FINEST. STEVE PERRY HAS ALWAYS HAD A HUGE IMPACT ON MUSIC HISTORY FROM HIS DAYS WITH JOURNEY AND WITH HIS SOLO EFFORTS, AND THIS ALBUM HAS THE FEEL OF A GREAT JOURNEY ALBUM AND A GREAT STEVE PERRY SOLO PROJECT AND PROVES THAT STEVE HASN’T LOST HIS TREMENDOUS GIFT OF THE LOVE BALLAD. THE LAST SONG ON THIS AMAZINGLY SMOOTH AND SOULFUL FEELING OF AN ALBUM IS CALLED “WE FLY” AND STEVE BRINGS IN HIS AMAZINGLY AND I FELT THE ALMOST HAUNTING VOCALS IN HIS MUSIC CATALOG ON THIS SONG, BUT DESPITE THIS STEVE PERRY HAS NOT LOST ANY OF HIS MAGICAL ABILITIES TO WRITE AND PRODUCE A MAGICAL FEELING SONG THAT REACH OUT TO YOU AND TOUCH YOUR HEART IN WAYS THAT ARE PURELY MAGICAL AND REAL AND FELT AS YOU LISTEN TO THIS TRULY REMARKABLE AND AMAZING MUSIC CONTRIBUTION TO MUSIC. I THANK STEVE PERRY FOR HIS INCREDIBLE FRIENDSHIP & HIS MAGICAL AND AMAZING GIFT OF SONG AND MUSIC AND PERHAPS CATCH HIM ON MY JOURNEY THROUGH THIS SUPERB LIFE WITH WONDERFUL MUSIC LIKE THIS.

I have a very extensive broadcasting & music back round. with over 30 years experience. I started a writing career, with the idea bringing notice to the industry, writing about individuals, from all around the globe, all genres and remaining consistent with my slogan of "Hearing is Believing", and bringing out the "positive" in all artists no matter how small, big or different. I feel all need to be given that chance to be noticed for their talents and allow others to hear, and be exposed to their craft. As of date I have written well over 180 music album reviews and continue to acquire more everyday. Some legends, some independent artists, but all in all my wish is they get the to share the stage lights within the industry and with my "Positive " music posts through my writing about them and reviewing their album always in a "Positive" forum.
