To celebrate the release of his new solo album, The Calling, Neal Schon and Frontiers Records will be giving one lucky winner an autographed PRS SE 245 guitar!
Taking a detour from his main job, the multi-talented Schon produced and played all guitars and bass on The Calling at Berkeley's famed Fantasy Studios during a break from Journey's busy touring schedule. The album was recorded completely from scratch to finish in just four days.
The 2012 album also marks a reunion with former Journey member and current in-demand drummer Steve Smith, who lends his virtuoso talents to all 12 tracks. Schon also recruited two keyboard masters to flesh out the music.
Igor Len, an accomplished classical, jazz and film composer who had previously collaborated with Schon, is featured on acoustic piano throughout The Calling; while Grammy Award-winning special guest Jan Hammer (Jeff Beck, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Miami Vice soundtrack) recorded Moog synthesizer solos on two tracks. The Calling is an incredible addition to Schon's already spectacular body of work.
