Heaven & Earth’s line-up now includes Gianluca Petralia (vocals), Stuart
Smith (guitars), Lynn Sorensen (bass), George Barabas (Hammond organ and
keyboard), and Simon Wright (drums, percussion). They have become an
international band with an Italian singer, a Hungary-based keyboardist, and
two British transplants living in the U.S. amongst their ranks. These five
incredible rock musicians have banded together to record this magnificent
new album, “V”.

 

“Personally, I feel that this is our best album yet. It has a much harder
edge than the previous albums. The chemistry between the new musicians was
amazing,” says guitarist Stuart Smith.

 

“It’s been an incredible five-month ride made of impulsive writing and
recording with outstanding musicians I’m now honored to call friends. From
the very beginning, it felt like this album was already there. It just
needed to be delivered…it was like a scream to exorcise the bleak reality
we’re living right now,” says vocalist Gianluca Petralia.

 

“I’ve been a big fan of Heaven & Earth since their first album so when
Stuart asked me to join the band it was like something any fan or musician
could dream of. I enjoyed the whole recording process and we had lay down
some serious hard rock songs for this new record,” adds keyboardist George
Barabas.

 

“Heaven & Earth ‘V’ is rock before it became polished like jewelry. It’s
attitude with dirt on its face. As two of our members were in different
countries it was logistically challenging to record, but everyone rallied
together like a great band should,” says bassist Lynn Sorensen.

 

“I’m glad I had the opportunity to play on this Heaven and Earth album.
Incredible musicians and some classy songwriting,” says drummer Simon
Wright.

 

“V” is an absolute must hear for all lovers of Rainbow, early Whitesnake,
and Bad Company and that general era of amazing hard rock.
