This is M.E.’s “One Man Show”, where he performs to sequenced backing tracks that he programmed using a Roland R-70 in the 1990′s. Joining him on vocals is Swedish vocalist Urban breed. This was the first time that M.E. had performed TEARS OF ALLAH since 1991, and the two of them had no opportunity to rehearse together prior to the performance.

Per M.E.: “Urban had the burden of not only performing with me unrehearsed, but also singing around noon. Not the best time for a vocalist. I think everyone will agree, he did an excellent job on the song. Thanks Urban!”

Mark ”M.E.” Edwards, the guitarist for OVERLORDE, checks in with news about his upcoming solo ATLANTA show…

 

“Planning for my outdoor show at the ARTMORE HOTEL on the opening day of Progpower USA XII is really kicking into high gear. My set is going to be 90+ minutes, and will feature my unique “one man show”. This is my first opportunity to perform in Atlanta, and I look forward to it!”

 

“Besides my usual set of instrumentals, I will be joined by Paul LaPlaca (Chris Caffery Band, Ted Poley Band, October Thorns, Zandelle) on vocals. Paul has joined me onstage a few times in the NY area. Norman Skinner was also scheduled to join me onstage to sing, but unfortunately he had to bow out late last week. While this is a disappointment to me for sure, luck has it that another vocalist is coming onboard. Keep an eye out for a special announcement later this week…”

Guests will be treated to a special live performance by guitarist and songwriter Mark “M.E.” Edwards of the veteran U.S. Power Metal band Overlorde. The performance will feature his unique and not to be missed “One Man Show” consisting of both original and cover heavy rock & metal instrumentals.

Mark “M.E.” Edwards – Custom presets for new VST AMP RACK plugin; Statement regarding the recent passing of Gary Moore

February 25th, 2011

Steinberg USA has invited M.E. to design custom presets for the  new VST AMP RACK plugin  that comes with their new CUBASE 6 DAW software.  This is a great honor for M.E. These presets will be made available via download  from the Steinberg website in the coming months.

Meanwhile. M.E. will be demonstrating the VST AMP RACK during two New York City area CLUB CUBASE events during the first week of March. They will be held at GUITAR CENTER stores. Dates and information can be found at: http://www.steinberg.net/en/newsandevents/events/club_cubase.html

 

And a video has been uploaded to Youtube showing M.E. working on his presets with Steinberg’s Sal Pelaez at G&S Recording Studios in New Jersey. Check it out:

 

Screen shots from one of M.E.’s presets can be viewed at his Facebook page.

 

On a final, and sadder, note… below is M.E.s statement regarding the recent passing of Gary Moore.

 

On February 6, 2011, the world lost a legendary guitarist. Ireland’s Gary Moore. When I read the news, I was in shock.

 

I am a huge fan of Gary’s rock/metal work, and had the pleasure to see him live on the WILD FRONTIER tour. For about 25 years, I have been referring to Gary as “my favorite living guitarist”. He influenced me greatly. Just a week before his death, I had performed two of his tunes live. His instrumental BLINDER, and his version of Free’s WISHING WELL. And his influence from tunes like PARISIENNE WALKWAYS and THE MESSIAH WILL COME AGAIN can be found in a number of my songs, specifically LOVERS.

 

R.I.P. Gary Moore. We lost you far too soon….but your music will not only live on forever in your own recordings, but also in the inspiration you have given other players who will continue to speak your praises. – Mark “M.E.” Edwards Guitarist/Overlorde
