Hello dear ones!
I have been in the studio, here in Essen, Germany
recording my final vocals for the debut album ''The Jaguar Priest'' coming to you by UNIVERSAL MIND PROJECT!
In case you do not know about UMP, it was founded back in 2012 by American guitarist-composer, Michael Alexander. It is a collaborative project between musicians from all around the globe, counting great names of the industry in its ranks, such as Mark Jansen (EPICA, Mayan), Charlie Dominici (ex- Dream Theater), Nils K. Rue (PAGAN's MIND), Mike LePond (SYMPHONY X), Alex Landenburg (Rhapsody, 21Octayne), Henrik Bath (Darkwater), Emanuele Casali (DGM, Astra) and others. I joined the Project as a guest vocalist for one track back in early 2013 but soon we discovered with Michael that our musical chemistry was something special so I joined the project as full time member, co-composing as well. UMP is a significant, different, beautiful part of me, musically; I am proud of the path we have shapped so far. So 2 years later, a debut album is being made ready to reach out to your ears.
May 9th 2015 we complete the final mastering at Domination Studios by Simone Mularoni, in Italy. Till then, there is a lot of work to be done in a very limited time frame, but we are not just any musicians! We are the Universal Mind Project, guys and gal! Expect us!
