LYRAKA has announced the signing of legendary rock vocalist Graham Bonnet (RAINBOW, MSG, ALCATRAZZ) for the recording of their second CD, Lyraka Volume 2. The composer and lead guitarist, Andy DiGelsomina, has stated, "For the second album, Graham will not only be adding his voice to the songs, but will be involved in the songwriting. I would be foolish to pass on an opportunity to collaborate with the man who co-wrote songs like 'Assault Attack', 'Desert Song', and 'Island In The Sun'."
A statement from Graham Bonnet reads: "I have been given opportunities in the past to do many kinds of projects; a word I don't like because it is one used, in my opinion, too many times. Lyraka is an adventure for me. Jasmine and Andy have given me the chance to sing and be involved in the creative side of a new world. I think we have come up with something unique. This is a different path; a road less travelled and a new light. Thanks to Jasmine and Andy for their great images... they makes my job all that much easier."
Session work for Lyraka Volume 2 will begin in February 2011. Bonnet will also be enlisted for narrative work in the upcoming Lyraka movie, slated for production in 2013.
In the meantime, Lyraka Volume 1 is now available on CD and MP3 albums at Lyraka.com.
