RICK WAKEMAN, GEOFF DOWNES, L. SHANKAR & More Join FERNANDO PERDOMO On Soundtrack For Chilling New Thriller FROST!

Los Angeles, CA – Superstar musician/producer Fernando Perdomo is following up last year’s blockbuster collaboration with drum legend Carmine Appice, “Energy Overload,” with not one but two exciting new projects. First, Perdomo produced the high-profile single “Lucifer Sam” for theatrical rock legend Arthur Brown, which was released on Tuesday, and today marks the release of the first single from Perdomo’s film score for the new theatrical thriller Frost!

“The Crash” is a haunting piece that scores the Frost film’s central incident, an auto accident that leaves the two main characters, a father and daughter, stranded in an icy mountain wilderness where they have to fight for their survival. Joining Perdomo on the track is none other than keyboard wizard Rick Wakeman, just one of the many guests featured on the Frost soundtrack alongside Asia/Yes keyboardist Geoff Downes, electric violinist L. Shankar (Peter Gabriel/Frank Zappa), guitarist Terry Reid.

Drummer Mark Murdock Releases New Solo Album “The Phoenix Has Risen” Feat. Ron Howden of Nektar and Fernando Perdomo

“Sounds strong!” - Steve Hackett

“The Phoenix Has Risen” represents the work of drummer/songwriter Mark Murdock whose previous works included Cymbalic Encounters (With Brand X musicians) and Empire (Peter Banks of YES) and most recently The New Empire “Second Lifetime” release on Forward Motion Records. Mark was also a guest on the YES 50th Anniversary tribute album by Dave Kerzner and Fernando Perdomo

“The Phoenix Has Risen” was composed and produced by Mark during the lockdown of 2020. Mark sites the Phoenix in the title as a symbol of hope in these pandemic times. Mark just happens to be from Phoenix, Arizona but now resides in Tokyo. The music leans more to the Prog side with hints of rock and pop embellished in it.

The 12 song CD features guest artists, not only including guitarist Fernando Perdomo, but veteran Prog drummer Ronald Howden of Nektar who guests on two songs, and bassist Alan Thomson, who played with John Martyn and currently the Martin Barres Band, U.K. vocalist Tim Pepper and Joe Berger lead guitar and more.

Mark not only composed all music and lyrics but all the keyboard tracks including orchestral sections.

Here’s what’s being said about “The Phoenix Has Risen”:

“While Mark Murdock may have seemed to venture beyond art-rock pastures he used to explore decades ago, prog remains a vital aspect of this EMPIRE and BRAND X associate, and even though there are collective projects the veteran was involved with lately, his individual style naturally led to a solo album, a record of a particularly personal stripe.” - DMME

“Symphonic Visual Music!” - Cary Bialac, producer/musician

“There are themes that could be Prog Soundtracks or Miniseries!” –

Anonymous musician in Tokyo

“Prog at its best! Mark Murdock’s new solo work, ‘The Phoenix Has Risen’ is most definitely carrying the innovative torch on this much missed genre of music” - Anonymous Prog Fan

Disk Union CD release date 12/23/2020

Prog Guitarist Fernando Perdomo Releases Eagerly Anticipated 5th Album "Zebra Crossing"

Multi-Instrumentalist Fernando Perdomo Goes"Out To Sea" With Debut Instrumental Progressive Rock Album!


“Out to Sea” is the debut Instrumental Progressive Rock Album by Fernando Perdomo, guitarist and bassist of the Dave Kerzner Band. The album draws inspiration from classic 70s Art Rock albums by the likes of Steve Hackett, Peter Banks, Steve Howe, and Jan Akkerman. Acclaimed artist Paul Whitehead painted the cover image. Other covers by Whitehead include “Trespass,” “Nursery Cryme,” and “Foxtrot” by Genesis. While all instruments on the record were played Fernando, save one drum track, he has put together a stellar group to perform the music of “Out To Sea” live.

“Out To Sea” was a pre-release on Cruise To The Edge 2018, a progressive rock concert cruise headlined by the band Yes, where Fernando played with the Dave Kerzner Band alongside Kerzner, Derek Cintron, Roger Houdaille, vocalists Durga and Lorelei McBroom (Pink Floyd), and special guests Randy McStine (The Fringe), John Wesley (Porcupine Tree), Steve Rothery (Marillion), Steve Hackett (Genesis), Harry Waters (Roger Waters), Gabriel Agudo (Bad Dreams) as well as Geoff Downes, Jon Davison, and Billy Sherwood of Yes. Fernando also played guitar in a special tribute to John Wetton with Kerzner and Thijs Van Leer of Focus. On previous performances on Cruise To The Edge, Fernando accompanied Sonja Kristina (Curved Air) and an all-star line up of progressive rock musicians in Dave Kerzner Band's tribute to the late Greg Lake of Emerson, Lake and Palmer.

Fernando Perdomo is a known powerhouse of the LA music scene. The LA Weekly dubbed him “The millennial answer to Todd Rundgren.” He has made a name for himself as an in-demand Producer, Singer/Songwriter, and Multi-Instrumentalist. Fernando was a featured guitarist at the “Echo In The Canyon” concert in Los Angeles playing with Fiona Apple, Jakob Dylan, Regina Spektor, Beck, CatPower, and Jade Castrinos. Fernando will appear in the “Echo In The Canyon” documentary film and album scheduled for release in the spring of 2018.

Fernando recorded most of the bass and guitars on the acclaimed albums “New World” and “Static” by Dave Kerzner, along with Steve Hackett (Genesis), Keith Emerson (ELP), Simon Phillips (The Who), Colin Edwin (Porcupine Tree), Durga McBroom (Pink Floyd), Francis Dunnery (It Bites), Nick D'Virgilio (Spock's Beard), Billy Sherwood (Yes) and more.

Fernando is personally donating $1 for every copy of the album sold to Macmillan Caring Locally (http://www.macmillanlocal.org/about-us.php), a charity chosen by Lisa Wetton for donations from Fernando’s release of his “Starless” cover in honor of John Wetton. The “Starless” cover is the bonus track on the Cherry Red version of the album “Out To Sea”.

Fernando has several new Prog Rock projects in the works, including “Out To Sea 2” which he expects to release Fall 2018.

“Out To Sea” is slated for world-wide distribution through Cherry Red Records starting May 4, 2018.

The reviews are pouring in for “Out To Sea”:

“...This album was really a surprise. Many guitar solo albums are different versions of the same thing; not the case here. From the first listen, 'Out to Sea' is captivating as it is different...” - The Prog Report,

“To call Fernando Perdomo a genius is like saying it snows in the arctic. An imaginative artist, producer, songwriter and sideman, he takes his cues from his beloved influences of the '60s and '70s - The Beatles, the Alan Parsons Project, ELO, et. al. - and then absorbs them into his own output, resulting in a glorious mesh of sonics and suggestion...” - Lee Zimmerman, Goldmine Magazine, 

“There's still plenty of life in the sounds and structures of the classic prog era, and the invention, lyricism and sheer joy Fernando Perdomoa brings to this album prove it.” – Kruekutt, Progarchy,
