Biography
Jeff Hamel: Former guitarist of 80's progressive metal band OSMIUM located out of Detroit. Jeff Hamel has been playing guitar since he was 14 being mentored by Sponge's former guitar player Joey Mazzola. In the 90's, Jeff spent a couple of years studying recording technologies at the Record Institute of Detroit under the eye of recording titan Robert Dennis. This exposed Jeff to many other forms of music.
In 2004, Jeff relocated to Minneapolis and began persuing his passion for symphonic progressive rock and created the Majestic project. As a multi-instrumentalist, Jeff manages to compose, play and record all the instruments used for Majestic. Over the years, Jeff has developed a unique guitar style and incorporated influences from various progressive bands. The epic songwriting of Majestic has taken on a life of it own.
Yes, Genesis, Dream Theater, Porcupine Tree, Riverside, Ayreon, King Crimson and Deep Purple are some of the bands that influence Jeff. Many of these influences are clearly heard throughout the music of Majestic.

Jessica Rasche: Singing since the age of 9 Jessica Rasche has been performing in many different venues including musical productions, choirs, and many collaborations as a singer/lyricist in a broad spectrum of genres. In 2008, Jessica began collaborating with Jeff and the results were so positive, Jessica became the primary vocalist for Majestic. Although new to the progressive music scene, Jessica found the music a perfect match for her background in theater and choir.
Being a child of the 80’s, Jessica is very influenced by the music of that era, but more notably, she is very strongly influenced by the band Heart, Pat Benatar and Taylor Dayne. Jessica’s debut performance on the Arrival CD is outstanding and has helped take the music of Majestic to new places.

Listen to what others say about Majestic

They have created a very strong musical style, that is not so easy to find today, definitely they should have a special attention from all prog rock lovers around the world. “Arrival” is a contemporary progressive rock album with a vibrant and modern sound, the album contains 77:30 minutes, divided into four songs, where all the tracks, offers to the listener an magnificent and vibrant music. So if you are a fan of “Arena”, “Genesis”, “Porcupine Tree”, “Riverside”, “Yes”, “Magenta”, “Mostly Autumn”, “Ayreon” and you like all of them you must get Majestic. Brilliant, fantastic, and amazing work, highly recommendable…

- Carlos Alberto Vaz Ferreira, progressiverockbr.com

Hamel is an impressive master of many instruments; however his guitar work is flawless throughout. Ranging from dreamy, atmospheric passages to sharp incisive work outs and including most else in between, all the guitar work is of the highest standard and slowly but surely draws you into the joys held within this album. Majestic have put together a quite wonderful progressive album with Arrival that will appeal to those who lap up music from the current crop of prog’s leading lights, or those who still hanker for the genres past glories.

- Steven Reid, SoT Staff Writer

My first experience with the artist’s music was the album Descension which I thought was a good listen. I am happy to say the new release entitled Arrival blows that one out of the water. Arrival does not feel like a one man band in the slightest. The sound is so rich and full it is hard to believe this is the work of one man. This is an album I highly recommend. Arrival is truly majestic in every sense of the word.

- Jon Neudorf, Sea of Tranquility

This new album of Majestic well differs from precedent. It is a success. If you love Ayreon, Stream Of Passion, Porcupine Tree and Pink Floyd, this opus should please you.
