Frontiers Records is pleased to announce the signing of Connecticut based producer, multi-instrumentist and songwriter Jeff Cannata for the release of a new ARC ANGEL album planned for the first half of 2013.
Cannata was a founding member and driving force behind the New Haven-based progressive rock band Jasper Wrath in the 70’s (an outfit who also featured James Christian for some time, who later went on to join House of Lords). After the band’s demise he later formed a new project called Arc Angel with former Jasper Wrath bandmate Michael Soldan. The group signed a record deal with CBS Records and released a superb self-titled debut in 1983 for the Portrait label imprint (home also for Aldo Nova, Orion The Hunter, Heart and many more legendary acts).
He has later on released a number of solo albums. Particularly “Images of Forever” (released in 1988) and “Watching The World” (1993) have received a great critical acclaim, especially in Europe and are generally considered as some of the finest slices of hi-tech AOR Music of their time. Cannata has recently independently released two more albums Tamorok and Mysterium Magnum (in 2006) before deciding to resurrect the original Arc Angel monicker and return with a more concise and melodic rock based new album for Frontiers Records.
HOUSE OF LORDS singer JAMES CHRISTIAN has spent the last time in the studio writing and recording the songs which will end up on his third solo album that will be entitled “Lay It All on Me“. Some of the song titles include
“Day In The Sun”, “Believe In Me”, “Shot in the Dark”, “Welcome to your Future”, “Every Little Lie” and more. The album will include a total of 12 original songs. Frontiers plans the release of this new exciting Melodic Rock record in 2013.

Tapes are being mixed by Mike Slamer in is studios in Los Angeles. Some of the song titles include “Down”, “I See You There”, “Lay it on the Line”, “Time and Time Again” and “What Love’s Supposed to Be”. All the fans that have appreciated the previous two efforts from Seventh Key will be delighted with the new songs. The label hopes to release the record in the first half of 2013.
