Frontiers Records is excited to present the newest AOR sensation which got added to the label’s roster of artists. Introducing L.R.S. featuring Tommy LaVerdi (21 GUNS), Josh Ramos (THE STORM, HARDLINE) and Michael Shotton (VON GROOVE, AIRTIME).

Started initially as a way to bring back to the public the amazing talent of Tommy LaVerdi, a singer which came to the attention of the fans on the legendary 21 GUNS debut album "Salute" in 1992, the whole project morphed into a power band trio when two well known musicians: guitar player Josh Ramos and drummer Michael Shotton were brought into the picture by the album producer Alessandro Del Vecchio (HARDLINE).

 The writing sessions were fast and steady with Del Vecchio managing all contributions from the musicians and offering a number of his own songs to the band which was anyway able to develop a distinct sound in the tradition of JOURNEY / THE STORM, with hints of Canadian AOR - think mid 80's TRIUMPH.

“I felt honored when Serafino Perugino, Frontiers Records President, offered me the opportunity to return to the homeland of my family and to work with people I respect artistically”, says Tommy LaVerdi. “My only complaint is that it went by so fast. I will be happy to continue making many records with Alessandro and Frontiers Records in the future! One the songs on the album is called "I Will Find My Way" and when I got lost while going for a fast little walk in the forest of Somma Lombardo before going into the studio, that song was suddenly my favorite… 8 hours later, it was nice to know that Alessandro and Josh were actually worried about me. We all became friends so quickly, it was very sad to leave each other after we finished recording and filming the videos. I really would love to get this band on the road and play these songs in front of a live audience. We just need to make sure that Frontiers doesn't book any of the shows close to the forest!”

Josh Ramos adds: “It was great to work with Alessandro. I got to know him first through e-mail, then when I met him in person it was like I already knew him, nice person, great singer, producer, keyboard player and cook, Tommy is a very funny guy, interesting person, sometimes intense, but that's by being in the business so long and having to deal with so many things. Mike is also a funny guy, very talented drummer and vocalist. Wishwe could spend more time together!”

Michael Shotton states: “I am exceptionally proud to be a part of this project. The songs are punchy with great hooks and performances. Since the first time the three of us actually met in person and unbelievable vibe created instantaneously between us. It was like we had ben playing in a band for years. That’s a rare thing……egos in park and 0 to 60 in seconds. It was amazing and I really think fans of our previous works and new fans will see and feel that! I really look forward to hearing how our older fans are going to enjoy this piece of work. I think it totally kicks!!!!!”

The resulting album promises to be a shining example of today's AOR music with soaring vocals from a superb vocalist who comes back into the well deserved spotlight and some exquisite guitar playing from Ramos. This is an album not to be missed and an AOR highlight for early 2014! Stay tuned for more news !
