Westcoast music has a big following in our small hometown Umeå. In the 90's we were visited by acts like Bill Champlin, Marc Jordan and the Jay Graydon All Star Band. Also, Umeå is a great musical community with a large band culture.
It all started back in 2002 when Kurt Vereecke decided to make his dream come true by recording an AOR and melodic rock album. During the recordings more and more musicians got involved in the Frozen Rain project, including some of Kurt's personal idols such as Tommy Denander (Radioactive), Steve Newman (Newman) and Daniel Flores (Mind's Eye).
SAPPHIRE EYES is a band rising from the ashes of ALYSON AVENUE and SECOND HEAT. The idea of SAPPHIRE EYES were born when Niclas decided to write and record a new album. The first idea was to pick a female vox for a projectrecording. After some rehearsals with the girls the decision for a male vocals came to mind.
