With a fearless and adventurous approach to music, Oklahoma native – composer Kitt Wakeley -creates an electrifying amalgamation of orchestra, rock, EDM, and piano, resulting in an epic cinematic vibe that ignites both our emotion and imagination. His impressive accolades include: Indie Channel Music Hall of Fame Inductee 2021 and many more besides. When Wakeley isn’t writing and recording for his own projects, he is in high demand producing pop, rock, and country tracks for other artists as well as producing TV & film soundtracks and trailers. His forthcoming album “Symphony of Sinners and Saints” promises fans an elevated orchestral musical experience andfeatures two key track collaborations with rock guitar legend Joe Satriani. The albumwill be released on 21st May 2021.
Expanding on the use of live orchestration in Wakeley’s previous album, 2018’s “Midnight in Macedonia”, “Symphony of Sinners and Saints” is characteristically huge and, like it’s predecessor,includes the London’s Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (RPO), recorded at London’s famed Abbey Road Studios, and conducted by Cliff Masterson (Little Mix, Kylie Minogue, Il Divo, Oasis.)
“Symphony of Sinners and Saints” is the product of much time, love and perfectionism. It features a stand-out musical collaboration with the best-selling instrumental rock guitarist of all time, Joe Satriani, who contributes to two tracks: “Conflicted” (first single) and “Forgive Me”. Wakeley insists Joe put his own unique and incredible stamp on the tracks, “He asked if it would be okay to take some creative liberties. And who am I to say no to Satriani? … What he came up with was pure Satriani magic.” Whilst this may be true, Satriani acknowledges Wakeley’s own musical genius by proclaiming the tracks“epic musical gems full of powerful emotions and sonic surprises…. I’m so happy I was able contribute to this stellar album”. Praise indeed.
“Symphony of Sinners and Saints”: an epic orchestral magic, a cinematic musical journey through a gamut of emotions and senses – and so much more besides.
