Profile Phil Naro has been plugging the power of his voice into New York State bar bands before he was even technically allowed in a bar. He spent the 1980’s honing his skills and his sensibility in a series of solo and group albums and is ready to make his mark in the charts. A prolific and diverse songwriter and blesses with a voice so distinctive it leaves critics floundering for accurate analogies. With this album Phil Naro has released the highlight of his career(…so far!).

This album was mixed and engineered by Harry Hess so the Harem Scarem connection is quite obvious especially in the sound although Naro are not much of a copycat of the great canadians like say…Fiore! Well what you get for your moneys worth is a good collection of excellent hard rock wich is perfectly delivered and well produced. Phil’s distinct vocal style & stage presence have earned him a reputation as a world class front-man. Not to mention his songwriting ability which can go from ballad to hard rock anthem, can stand up against anyone out there past or present. Phil is definitely one of rock’s premier singer/songwriters currently active in the business today.
