Fwd: Frontiers / Press Release

JAMES CHRISTIAN

Frontiers Records is pleased to announce all details for the release
of
the new James Christian solo album entitled "Meet The Man".

James Christian is best known as singer and songwriter for House of
Lords. With them, he sung on four studio albums including the most
recent "The Power & The Myth". He has also built during the years a
fine
reputation as a songwriter and producer in his own right.

His first solo album entitled "Rude Awakening" was originally released
in 1994 (later reissued on Frontiers Records with 6 bonus tracks) and
included some of his best collaborations with such writers as Mark
Baker
(Signal), Bruce Gowdy (Unruly Child), Bob Marlette, Mike Slamer
(Streets) and Steve DeMarchi & Freddy Curci from Alias. This album is
still nowadays regarded as a delight for any lover of first class AOR.

After the successful reunion album with House of Lords, Christian
wanted
to make a come-back also as a solo artist in a more traditional
melodic
rock vein.

To do so he chose the best possible set of songs from his repertoire
that could make up an amazing new album. The result can be heard on
"Meet The Man": a classy melodic rock cd that includes songwriting
contributions from his House of Lords bandmates Chuck Wright and Lanny
Cordola ("After The Love Has Gone"; "Hold Back The Night"); the
songwriter of one of House Of Lords' biggest hits "Love Don't Lie",
Stan
Bush (who offered "Strong Enough" to the album) and, of course, songs
from the late Judithe Randall (Mark Free, Khymera, FM, Starship etc.),
James Christian's artistic mentor.

The final tracklisting will include the following songs:
After The Love
Has Gone; Know You In The Dark
Know You In The
Dark; Surrender Your Love;
Meet The Man; End Of Time; Love Looked Into My Life; Leave Well
Enough Alone; Strong Enough; You Should Be Blue (All I Could Feel Was
Blue); Circle of Tears; Hold Back The Night

The release date has been set for October 20th 2004.
