Frontiers Music Srl has signed Memoria Avenue, a new Melodic Rock/AOR band from Norway showcasing an artistic union between guitarist Tor Talle and singer Jan Le’ Brandt. Memoria Avenue has a sound and style that will particularly appeal to fans of stylish, ’80s oriented melodic rock bands, think Journey and newer bands like Perfect Plan and Work of Art. Their debut album is currently in the works.
Tor is a skilled guitarist, best known for his AOR project, Northern Light. He has also worked, either writing songs and/or performing with, on records from melodic rock giants such as Joe Lynn Turner (Rainbow, Deep Purple), Fergie Frederiksen (ex-TOTO), Rob Moratti (ex-SAGA), Steve Overland (FM), and the late Tony Mills (TNT, Shy). Jan Le’ Brandt’s voice is sometimes hoarse and rough, but also moves into a more delicate and sensitive style. He has already previously released some material as a solo artist and appeared in the cover band Svigermord, and formerly sang for Big City.
