Be ready for the new sensational studio album by Michael Kratz, Danish AOR/Westcoast artist to be released March 3rd, 2018, via Art of Melody Music/Burning Minds Music Group.
Kratz has had a long and rewarding career, especially in Denmark. As drummer of Kandis, he achieved multiple gold releases, increasing his fan-base thanks his outstanding talents as an artist.
After one year of hard work, Kratz is ready to show once again to the world his great talent both as songwriter and performer, delivering a real contemporary masterpiece of AOR/Westcoast: “Live Your Life”. Legendary artists like Steve Lukather (Toto), Michael Landau, Dom Brown (Duran Duran), David Garfield, Christian Warburg (Paul Young) and Alessandro Del Vecchio (Revolution Saints, Hardline) added their musicianship to the album, increasing if possible an already outstanding work.
The concept for the cover and the logo have been conceived by Michael Kratz and Aeglos Art (Airbound, Raintimes, Viana, Charming Grace, Room Experience) developed them masterfully.
The double liner notes feature the opinions of Kenneth Bremer, editor in chief of the renowned Westcoast music website Blue Desert, and Steve Price, the star speaker behind ARfm rock radio in UK.
