Vocalist/guitarist & songwriter Ryan Roxie is best known as Alice Cooper’s long-time lead guitarist and collaborator. He has also worked with Slash and Gilby Clarke and been a member of Casablanca. Roxie has had an impressive ride so far.
“Imagine Your Reality” is his first official solo release and sees him joined by other noteworthy musicians, including a collaboration with Cheap Trick’s Robin Zander on the track ‘California Man’.
“Imagine Your Reality” continues Roxie’s legacy of creating infectiously melodic songs and straight ahead no nonsense rock riffs, and this time with more guitar than ever before! Ten tracks, all underlined by ten gleaming guitar solos. From the punk rock undertones of ‘Never Mind Me’ to the un-sugarcoated tale of life in La La Land (‘To Live And Die In LA’) to the superb Beatle-y/Oasis nod, ‘Look Me In The Eye’ – it’s a uplifting big rock sound. Robin Zander transforms ‘California Man’ into the ultimate vintage-vibed, top down, drive in the sunshine, rock n’ roll anthem.
The album was produced by Kristoffer ‘Folle’ Folin, Tommy Henriksen and Jon Bordon. Recorded and mixed at Purple Skull Studios, Stockholm Sweden.
