Frontiers News:

Frontiers Records is pleased to present TOMMY FUNDERBURK’s debut album “Anything For You”, to be released worldwide in January 2005 !   Tommy Funderburk has been one of the most hired background singers in the history of rock! He had recording sessions with artists such as Motley Crue, Whitesnake, Yes, Steve Lukather, Richard Marx, Rick Springfield, Starship, REO Speedwagon, Coverdale/Page, Jon Anderson and many others... But he is also widely known in the melodic rock and AOR circles for the contribution to timeless classic albums such as AIRPLAY (with Jay Graydon and David Foster) in 1979, The Front in 1984, What If in 1987 and for his two albums with King of Hearts: the duo he created with Richard Marx’s guitar player Bruce Gaitsch.   He also sang lead vocals of BOSTON’s album “Walk On” in 1994.   Tommy is now one of the founding members of the new US-based label Sovereign Artists who has recently released the HEART’s return album “Jupiter’s Darling”.


In the meanwhile he started to work on his first solo album recorded under the guidance of producer Fabrizio V.Zee Grossi (Glenn Hughes, House of Lords etc.). Aptly titled "Anything For You", the album features several songs co-written by Tommy with the likes of Michael Thompson, Bruce Gaitsch and Greg Mathieson which are a delight for all lovers of classic melodic rock and AOR in the style of Toto, Richard Marx and King of Hearts.   Full tracklisting is as follows:   Learning How To Love; Remember Our Love (click to hear an Mp3 sample - also featured on the Rock The Bones Vol. II compilation); Anything For You; Only You Can Give Me (click to hear an Mp3 sample); To Say You Love Me; You Got The Love (click to hear an Mp3 sample); Skin; The Garden; Second Chance; Say A Little Prayer.   Release in Europe is scheduled on Frontiers Records on January 24th 2005, while the Japanese release will happen slightly earlier on King Records.
