On Feb 1st 2021, Singer/Songwriter Tony Moore uploaded a live video performance of a new song he had just finished. It was called AWAKE, it lasted 9 mins, it had a lot of guitar solos, A LOT of guitar solos and the main vocal didn’t even come in till after 4 mins!
However, within days, the feedback was incredibly positive as thousands of views racked up alongside a growing list of enthusiastic and complimentary comments. Having broken all the ‘pop’ rules to create a musical work that now seemed to capture people’s imagination, Tony was struck by a thunderbolt of a thought. Could this be the opening track of a concept album…yet to be written ? Thus, in that moment, the idea was born and Tony immediately set to work.
