Press from Frontiers Records 05-August-00: Freddy Curci
career in a band called SHERIFF back in 1979, which recorded a classic album and (four years later!) had a number one song in the USA charts, called "When I'm With You".That song put Freddy
into the World Records Book for holding a note for almost 30 seconds!After SHERIFF's demise, a few years later he became involved in the band ALIAS, together with his former Sheriff bandmate Steve DeMarchi on guitar and ex HEART members Steve Fossen, Mike Derosier and Roger Fisher.
Alias released one album in 1989 for EMI worldwide.That record had two U.S. top ten hits: "More Than Words Can Say" and "Waiting For Love", which was penned by famed songwriters Brett Walker and Jeff Paris.In 1994 Freddy Curci
debuted as a solo artist with a cd called "Dreamer's Road" achieving good success in Canada.Freddy
is arguably one of the best vocalists in Rock History.He's
got the combination of vocal talents that all singers strive for.He can sing a ballad with a beautiful, smooth voice like Steve Perry of Journey or Kevin Cronin of REO Speedwagon and then turn around and belt out rocker with a rough edge on his voice like Brad Delp of Boston.
Of Italian descent, Freddy
grew up in Canada listening to nothing but Classical Opera music until he
was 13 years old.At that point he
started listening to Black Sabbath and other rock bands.Aside from his
Opera background, some of Freddy's other biggest influences musically were Lou Gramm of Foreigner and Tom Johnston of the Doobie Brothers.He
was even offered Lou Gramm's spot in Foreigner when Lou left in the late 80's.He chose not to do it so he could work with his best friend and musical counterpart, Steve DeMarchi to form Alias.
This compilation features some of his
best songs ever, along with two never released tracks "Bare Necessity" and "Finally" along with a unique live rendition of "When I'm With You" and a few songs rerecorded in Italian as a homage to his
