”Lifeline” combines two very talented vocalists in Nigel Bailey (Bailey, Three Lions) and Lee Small (Shy, Phenomena). Since their first meeting they have wanted to record an album together and after some time they recorded ”Scream”. The album features the help of long time friend and drummer Steve Clarkson (Bailey), Paul Hume (LawLess, Demon,) on the guitars and Nigel’s brother, Andy Bailey (Three Lions, Bailey), on the keyboards. The production, mixing and mastering is taken up by the great ”Paul Hume” whom features as a guitarist on the album as well. All tracks on this album are written by ”Nigel Bailey”.
Sweden and AOR/Melodic Rock are impossible to divorce from each other, because ever since EUROPE and MALMSTEEN made it big, the country has been continuously bringing us new bands in this genre. The past few years were very fruitful with bands like H.EA.T., HOUSTON, SANCHEZ, TITAN, DANGER AVENUE, EYE, STINGRAY, etc. etc. And now there is OSUKARU, another pure 80s sounding AOR/Melodic Rockband from Sweden.
