Finally, The Sound of Dreams has been released worldwide! It's been quite a journey filled with lots of ups and downs. It's a landmark album which brings together many of my heroes from the prog world who I grew up listening to. I can't thank Justin Hayward, Steve Hackett, Annie Haslam, Billy Sherwood, PJ Olsson, Julie Ragins, Geof O'Keefe, Kerry Chicoine and of course my son Justin Minasian enough for their amazing contributions to this album. I truly hope you all enjoy it. Already the album seems to be generating a lot of positive vibes. The album's second single The Sound of Dreams (Third Movement) featuring Genesis legend Steve Hackett was streamed more than 30,000 times in the first few hours following its release.

The Sound of Dreams (Third Movement) featuring Steve Hackett is the follow-up single release from the Golden Robot Records album The Sound of Dreams. The instrumental track was co-written by myself together with Steve and features an extended guitar solo from him that ranks up there with one of his best. The single is a radio edit of the final section of the 11 minute three part title track The Sound of Dreams which also features legendary Renaissance lead vocalist Annie Haslam, Yes bassist extraordinaire Billy Sherwood, along with Pentagram drummer Geof O'Keefe and guitarist Justin Minasian.

So Far From Home, the first single from our upcoming Sound Of Dreams album was released today by Golden Robot Records. The song features Grammy Award winning vocalist PJ Olsson, lead singer of the Alan Parsons Live Project, with Justin Minasian on guitars, Geof O'Keefe on drums and myself on keyboards, 12 string guitar and backing vocals. It's a new recording of a song I wrote back in 1999 for a movie starring Kris Kristofferson. So far, the reaction to the song has simply been great. Producer/Director Trinity Houston is gearing up to put together a music video for the song which will be released shortly.
