Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the release of “Epical”, the new solo album from vocalist Rob Moratti, on December 9th, 2022. Moratti is a solo artist, the lead vocalist of Moratti and Final Frontier, and the former singer of Saga. Rob Moratti, a genuine and true original, has an astonishing range and has carved a unique style for himself, blending the finest elements of melodic and progressive rock.
This will be Rob’s fifth solo album and his first release with Frontiers. Filled with his trademark harmonies and memorable choruses, the songs on “Epical” are some of the best of Rob’s career. The album also features a stellar cast of contributing writers and performers, including Joel Hoekstra on lead guitar, Tony Franklin on bass, Felix Borg on drums (and co-writing), Fredrik Bergh on keys (and co-writing), Ulrick Lönnqvist, Steve Augeri, and Pete Alpenborg (who also contributes rhythm guitar and keyboard). Needless to say this is quite a line up for this excellent album!
Moratti started his professional singing career in the early 90’s as lead vocalist and songwriter of the band Moratti. They were immediately well received, garnering airplay in Japan and Europe. In 2002, Rob’s future went forward with Final Frontier, a band with whom he has released four incredible melodic-minded metal albums.
Over the years in spite of all the changes in the music scene, Rob’s perseverance and passion have stayed strong. His talent captured the attention of the multi-platinum selling legendary progressive rock band Saga and in 2008, Rob Moratti would become the new vocalist for the band for a period of time, appearing on 2009’s “The Human Condition”.
Over the course of his solo career, Rob has also worked with many incredible musicians like Joel Hoekstra (Whitesnake, TSO, ex-Night Ranger) Reb Beach (Whitesnake. Winger), Tony Franklin (ex- Blue Murder, The Firm), Brian Doerner (Saga), Ian Crichton (Saga), and Steve Augeri (ex-Journey).
