Terry Brock s second solo album Diamond Blue promises to make a huge impact on the melodic rock world. He has recently introduced as lead singer for Melodic Rock titans Giant with the acclaimed release of the Promise Land album and very recently he has announced his intention to rejoin Strangeways, the legendary British AOR band that launched his name in the late 80 s. In between these two very important milestone albums in the melodic rock year, Terry managed to complete Diamond Blue in collaboration with renowned guitarist / producer / songwriter Mike Slamer. The two of them have already collaborated together in Seventh Key and on the Slamer album Nowhere Land and have shown the magic of the combination of their talent. In Diamond Blue the two of them explore a more classic Melodic Rock sonic landscape, which showcases Terry s vocal abilities in its most natural environment - with Mike Slamer on board you can guarantee roaring guitars and riveting guitar solos. All this, combined with brilliant song writing equals a fabulous release. Diamond Blue also includes a song Jessie s Gone written by Terry with Strangeways guitar player Ian Stewart. Terry Brock s musical career started as a background vocalist on the Kansas album "Drastic Measures" in 1983. On that session he met Neil Kernon (the producer of the record) who subsequently turned out to be very important in Terry s career. He also toured with Kansas in support of that album, playing guitar and doing background vocals. Before joining the legendary British Melodic Rock outfit Strangeways, Terry toured extensively with the Steve Morse Band, playing guitar and singing. Strangeways, of course, were Terry's best-known releases and he recorded two albums on BMG / RCA: "Native Sons" and "Walk In the Fire". With Strangeways he toured extensively around Europe garnering the band a reputation as one of the best UK based AOR bands ever and for himself the mantle of being the real heir to Steve Perry's (of Journey) throne. After he left Strangeways he moved to New York working mainly with famed producer Neil Kernon, who hired him to sing background vocals on albums by bands such as Aviator, Heaven's Edge, Valentine, Britny Fox and Michael Bolton. After a few years spent in Nashville, he was back on the scene as member of the Melodic Rock super group The Sign and later with Seventh Key (both featuring Kansas bassist/singer Billy Greer) and Slamer. He recently joined Giant as replacement for Dann Huff on vocals on the excellent Promise Land album and he is currently working on the anticipated Strangeways reunion CD ready for the Autumn.
