Alter Bridge frontman Myles Kennedy has completed recording his second solo album. He used the same team that worked on 2018’s “Year Of The Tiger”, including producer Michael “Elvis” Baskette, engineer Jef Moll, as well as drummer Zia Uddin and bassist Tim Tournier.

On Saturday (September 26), Myles posted an Instagram photo of him behind a recording console, and he included the following message: “After spending the last 7 months writing and recording, the 2nd solo record is tracked and ‘in the can’ as they say. The process, which started with me writing and demoing for the first half of the year merged into connecting with @zznuddin @timothysonoftimothy and driving nearly 3000 miles to Florida with gear in tow to meet up with the legend that is @elvisliberace at his fine studio. We all lived in a state of lockdown for 7 weeks with no outside world and nothing to focus on but recording music and acting like a bunch of 7th graders hopped up on vast amounts silly juice. It was an incredible experience….Rock n Roll summer camp at it’s finest. Thanks to my band and Elvis as well as his merry men @1f_jef and @joshuasaldate for helping bring yet another record across the finish line in best way possible. Love to y’all. #solorecord #MKII”.

On December 9, Alter B ridge performed at Paris, France’s L’Olympia, a venue very near to the band’s hearts due to it being the location where Jeff Buckley’s historic 2001 live album was recorded. To mark the occasion, Alter Bridge frontman Myles Kennedy got to play a cover of Leonard Cohen‘s ‘Hallelujah’ — famously covered by Buckley — on Jeff’s actual 1983 Telecaster guitar.

Before the performance, Kennedy dedicated the song to Buckley, calling the musician “probably one of my biggest influences” and saying that “we owe a great debt” to Jeff, who tragically died in May 1997 in an accidental drowning at the age of 30.

Earlier this year, Kennedy told Music Radar about Buckley: “Jeff was such an important musical figure in my evolution, especially in the early to mid-’90s. Don’t get me wrong, I loved what was happening in Seattle. I’m from the Pacific Northwest and am very proud of all those bands and how much they affected music. But at that stage in my development, I was really trying to figure out how to integrate blues and R&B into what I was doing, to help inspire my own sound… I was just looking for guide posts.
