Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the upcoming self-titled debut album (out on March 17th, 2023) from Stormwarning, an exciting new South American melodic rock act centered around the outstanding Argentinian vocalist Santiago Ramonda.
For the debut Stormwarning album, Santiago teamed with the production team of Sergio Mazul (Semblant) and Marcelo Gelbcke (Landfall), the same duo who oversaw the debut album from the amazing Brazilian heavy metal band Icon Of Sin.
“I am very excited to be part of the Frontiers family! It really took me a lot of effort to get to this point. I come from a small place where the conditions for art are not the best, but the passion of being committed to a purpose can break all barriers and schemes”, says Santiago. “I am happy to have signed with a label of this magnitude because with their help I am fulfilling my dream of recording my first professional studio album and making something to leave behind in this world, and especially something that is part of the great family of ROCK. Finally, I want to tell you something that has kept me on this path, and that day by day becomes ever more evident: ‘Dream big, because everything is possible, and dreams do come true’!”
In 2007, Santiago began his musical journey by picking up a guitar, but later realized that he was more inclined to try his hand at singing. After several years of self-taught development, he started taking vocal coaching lessons from the singer Ivan Sencion and dove into singing and playing live with 80s and 90s rock tribute bands to further hone his skills. In 2020, as a result of a cover of Joe Lynn Turner’s “Prelude/Endlessly” published on his YouTube channel, Santiago began to catch the attention of some players in the global melodic rock scene. Guitarist Stuart Smith (Heaven & Earth), whom the label has a long relationship with, shared Santiago’s YouTube videos with the label and the label immediately thought to introduce Santiago to Marcelo and Sergio. Both are both massive melodic rock fans and, coincidentally, had just started work on a bunch of melodic rock oriented material that they had not settled on a home for yet. The stars therefore aligned and thus Stormwarning was born.
