Guesting on guitar is Saga’s own Michael Crichton, exciting times indeed.

CULVER KINGZ – THIS TIME
Featuring Michael Thompson & Billy Trudel

 In 1983, Michael Thompson and Billy Trudel were introduced to each other. They were brought together by manager Steve Brooks and Producer/Engineer, Wyn Davis to form a new band called Slang. In the intervening years both Michael and Billy went on to back-up some of the biggest artists in the world. In 2011, the two friends re-connected and decided to finish that record they always wanted to make. That was the birth of the Culver Kingz. The band name came from both of them living in Culver City and writing and recording everything in Michaels studio. Now all these years later they are thrilled to come back full circle and do what they do best, Make music.

If you like bands such as Matchbox 20 and Santana this album is definitely for you!!!
Look for the Culver Kingz on 20th May 2016.  "

CHINA SKY RELEASES NEW VIDEO FOR "DREAMS I'LL NEVER SEE"
THE LAST TO FEATURE LATE DRUMMER BRUCE CRUMP.

 Melodic Rock group China Sky have released a new video for their re-worked cover of the classic Greg Allman song "Dreams I'll Never See", from their latest album, "China Sky II."

 

 The video was shot during recording sessions for the album, and will be the last to feature drummer Bruce Crump, who died of complications from throat cancer in March, less than a month after its release.

The song was recorded as a nod to Crump, who played drums for southern rock band "Molly Hatchet" in the 1970s and 80s, who had their first hit with "Dreams" in 1979. "We thought it would be something of a good luck charm", says lead vocalist Ron Perry. "When Bruce joined the band, we wanted to acknowledge what he was bringing to the table, and covering the same song that worked for him and Hatchet back in the day, and putting our own unique spin on it, just really seemed to resonate." Centered around a super-funky bass groove, the arrangement takes the song into new, heavier territory. "We saw the song as being much darker than the Allman Brothers or Molly Hatchet versions," says Perry, "and Bruce did some of his best work on this new treatment. He wanted to take the song somewhere he had not taken it before, and it definitely works."

The new video is the second from "China Sky II", following "One Life" which was released earlier this year.

"Dreams I'll Never See" can be seen at the band's website: www.chinaskyrocks.com
or on Facebook:
www.facebook.com/chinaskymusic

China Sky II is available wherever music is sold, from Escape Music Ltd.
