Looking forward to this one as Steve Overland is one of the most consistent and enjoyable singers in the melodic rock arena.
Steve Overland is a legend in his own lifetime. Is there anyone out there who is not familiar with his name? He has a history that goes way back into the late seventies, his first major recording was with the band Wildlife in 1980. After the demise of Wildlife Steve went on to form the cult British melodic rock band FM, a band that released many great albums throughout the eighties and nineties and more recently in 2013. Their popularity has always been at the forefront of British Hard Rock.
Steve originally teamed up with Escape Music to provide lead vocals for the Boston Tribute album (ESM 081), singing ‘Amanda’, one of the album highlights. Steve also joined forces with Steve Morris of Heartland fame to record the much acclaimed Shadowman albums “Land of the Living” (ESM 099) “Different Angles” (ESM127) “Ghost in the Mirror” (ESM179) and “Watching Over You” (ESM224).
Steve has also fronted two releases by The Ladder, which is a dream come true for all fans of FM as the band is an extension of the great FM themselves. “Future Miracles” (ESM109) was welcome by fans old and new and it was hailed by many as the best album of 2004. More recently “Sacred” (ESM149) is an album that hones the identity of The Ladder.
