2013, Phoenix Rising is a duo led by Titta Tani (vocals drums) and Paolo Caucci (guitars, bass-guitar and keyboards) who has aimed to create high quality AOR reminiscent of great bands of the genre such as Journey, Boston, Survivor/Pride Of Lions, Van ΄Hagar`, just to name a few, with very personal songwriting and an expert feeling for melody. This is the first album of the Italian band, that plays music that speaks straight to the heart. The strange thing here is that the band consists of two members, well established Italian musicians, and the result is an album that is absolutely amazing. Starting with a bang, the duet continues to deliver music so rich and full of melodies that brings tears to the eyes. Music full of emotions, sometimes up-tempo and party, some others slower and more mellow, but always full of the nicest grooves, delivering some of the finest AOR music. Memorable parts, where the listener can sing along and grooves that stick into your mind, are the key parts of this album.
