All In

by Mark Sweeney

Mark Sweeney releases his second solo-record since 2007. “ALL IN” impressively reveals the sound of rock for 2010. The 12 titles on the new record were produced by rock-icon Michael Voss and others including, but not limited to: Rosenstolz, Michael Schenker, Udo Lindenberg, Doro Pesch, Casanova. The songs are both modern and rock; the ballads stretch very deep. Mark Sweeney was able to get some top-class musicians for his new project. American singer Robin Beck (First Time) joins Mark for a duet. Bruce Kulick’s (Ex-Kiss) astonishing contribution confirms that he‘s one of the world’s greatest guitarists. Living legend Stefan Kaufmann (Ex-Accept/U.D.O.) demonstrates with his guitar playing that he is far from being too old to rock and roll! Drummer Jörg Michael’s first rate performance showcases his talent and flair. Moreover, Offspring singer Pearl is likely to raise comparisons with Mariah Carey - what a great voice!

Biography
At the early age of 17, Mark Sweeney was the frontman of a band called “STAYN”. In time, Sweeney realized that just “screaming” lyrics were not what music was all about, so he took classical vocal lessons from an opera singer.

After four years of intensive education, Mark Sweeney switched to the famous vocal teacher from Lucerne, Andy Portmann. After years of hard work and dedication, he became the rock singer he is today.

In 1995, the charismatic shouter joined the band “CHERRY PIE”, and hit the road with cover tunes. CHERRY PIE’S repertoire ranged from BON JOVI to METALLICA. Doing countless gigs, national and interna¬tional, Sweeney gained further attention and established himself as a rock singer. After a TV-show on the German channel Pro 7, his band got a record deal in 1998 and CHERRY PIE became “CRYSTAL BALL.” With a new name and the same extraordinary musicians, the band rocked on, dropping cover songs while writing their own original material. Another record followed; it was released in Europe and Asia. CRYSTAL BALL was signed by the world’s leading hard rock/metal label, NUCLEAR BLAST (NIGHT¬WISH etc.).

CRYSTAL BALL released three albums with this label and performed approximately 500 shows throughout 10 countries. European tours with PRETTY MAIDS, DOKKEN, DORO, U.D.O., AXXIS and Swiss colleagues from KROKUS and GOTTHARD followed. CRYSTAL BALL led their first European headliner tour with label mates, THUNDERSTONE at the end of 2005.

With recognition and merit from good reviews, countless radio and TV-appearances, airplay-charts in Japan, hitting the charts in Switzerland, top rankings in famous magazines and several “Album of the Month” awards, Mark Sweeney became a demanded producer and executive producer while contributing to several other records as background-singer. Mark made himself a name as a guest singer when he toured with the ex-KISS member Bruce Kulick.

The boys, meanwhile, a four-man band, got the attention from the smashing label AFM, who in 2007 released their successful album “Secrets”. That same year, Mark Sweeney released his first solo record “Slow Food” with Pie Music Records. Mark showed another side of him and surprised the listeners with soothing and emotional songs. The critiques on this album were astonishing, noteworthy and magnificent.

Mark Sweeney does it again for 2010 with “ALL IN.” This is one album you do not want to miss!
