Shining Bird


Hi Dane and welcome to Grande Rock. I’m glad we’re given the chance to talk about your new wonderful album “Black Opal”…
 
D: Thanks for having me!
 
 
Since you’re a newcomer, do tell me when and how Shining Bird took shape and how you came up with the band’s name initially…
 

Shining Bird - Black Opal

Shining Bird is a somewhat new act from Down Under, which started back in 2012 as a studio project and they turned into an actual band and released their debut album “Leisure Coast” in 2013. Now 3 years later, they’re back with their sophomore release entitled “Black Opal”. This second album has some major musical differences with the debut. For instance, Shining Bird are not an “experimental pop” band as they said when their debut was out; yet, they have passed that point and evolved as any vital and forward looking act should do…
 

Arc Angel - Harlequins of Light

Jeff Cannata, the mastermind behind Arch Angel & Cannata, releases a new album under the name Arc Angel, almost after 11 years since “Tamorok” (as Arch Angel/Cannata) and 7 years since “Mysterium Magnum” (as Cannata). There are no major differences between those two monikers so do not be confused at all. I was looking forward to this album since Jeff is a very gifted artist and he doesn’t release music very often too.
