Flying Colors is Mike Portnoy (drums, vocals), Dave LaRue (bass), Neal Morse (keyboards, vocals), Casey McPherson (lead vocals, guitar), and Steve Morse (guitar). "This album has bits and pieces of what you'd expect from each of us," says Portnoy. "The sum of all its parts led to brand new, unchartered territory for everyone involved."
The formation of Flying Colors began with an idea from executive producer Bill Evans: virtuoso musicians and a pop singer joining together to make new-fashioned music...the old fashioned way. Real songs. Real instruments. Real music.
Refreshing, classic, old and new, the recordings are saturated with the many styles, tones and hues of the musicians themselves. Together, they create a unique fusion of vintage craftsmanship and contemporary rock.
Produced by Peter Collins / Mixed by Michael Brauer / Mastered by Howie Weinberg
