Jean Robert, Thanks for accepting my Power of Prog invite! It means a lot that you are interested in my music, too. I hope you like it. I am trying to spread it worldwide hoping it will be enjoyed indefinitely. I have no cd, but my songs are Free Downloads (256Kbps) through powerofprog.com/profile/LenRice or www.ReverbNation.com/LenRice . Share with friends! Thanks again & keep up your great work! Len (Really enjoyed your posted song excerpts!)
I thought your lastname points back to Finland :)
I have written one of our song in English, maybe later will do more :D Now we are recording our second album and third is on our minds already. ... daywork distrubs making music!
I found the review in the Classic Rock Society magazine - and a good one it is too! I'm anxious to receive the CD now, as he makes comparisons to Galleon, who are a band I really enjoy and have had the privilege of seeing a couple of times.
I'll mention to Miles (Bartaby, Editor) about whether we can do something in the magazine with you. He likes to tie it in with activity, so do you have a new release planned or due, or a tour or something else we could work around?
Thank you ever so much for pointing me in the right direction to get your CD - I have just ordered it!
I review CDs and sometimes do articles for the Classic Rock Society magazine (check http://www.classicrocksociety.co.uk and you'll find out more about the society). I'd be happy to speak to the editor about doing something with you guys for a future magazine, if you are interested.
Anyway, thanks again Jean, and I'm looking forward to getting your CD!
