Many classic rock fans will be familiar with the concept and hostory of Tom Galley’s Phenomena project. It began in 1983 and played host to a revolving cast of musicians – Glenn Hughes, Keith Murrell, Cozy Powell and many others. With three albums released between 1985-1991, the Phonema project was then rested.
In 2010, with the support of Escape Music, the project was revived and two more albums were released, again featuring a host of classic/melodic rock musicians. The next phase of the project is now complete, and ‘Awakening’ will be released on March 27th 2012.
Once again, the project features a host of familiar names, including Shy’s Lee Small, ex-Saga man Rob Moratti, Ralf Scheepers, Terry Brock of Strangeways and Masterplan/ex-Riot voice Mike DiMeo.
Official track listing:
01. Smash It Up
04. Going Away
