She has one of the finest female voices in Rock & Metal: Amanda Somerville. The Michigan singer/songwriter/vocal coach works very hard and loves every moment. Working in the music industry, especially in the Rock & Metal genre, for 15 years she was part of countless projects and featured as a background singer on many metal records from Kamelot, Epica, Avantasia; the list goes on and on. At the moment she is on tour with Rock Meets Classic. Which was the perfect time to meet with her and ask her some questions about the new Kiske/Somerville album, the Metal community, talent shows, Rock Meets Classic and much more.
When the first Kiske/Somerville album was released in 2010, the album received good acclaim by both fans and the press. So, the question was: would there be a follow-up? Amid lots of speculation, everyone was hoping that there would be a follow-up to their first album. Michael Kiske and producer Mat Sinner mentioned to me in 2013 that a new Kiske/Somerville record is on the way and it would be great. Then two years went by and now “City Of Heroes” will finally hit the stores on April 17th. Can this album meet the high expectations created by the first album?
