ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Hard rock band 'Thief In The Night' goes acoustic on this single of the classic Led Zeppelin 'Kashmir' showing another side to the band. Stripped down to just Johnny Rossa's deep soulful vocal and Chris Van Duyn's acoustic guitar work they show that this epic song stands up in their organic arrangement all too well.

You'll also want to check out their first album as well. 'Under The Influence' features heavy driven riffs, well honed melodies against a massive sounding rhythm section with some occasional well placed interesting odd & mixed meters creating a distinct sound that will inevitably draw you in with a powerful allure. Combine elements of Soundgarden, Alter Bridge, Black Sabbath, Metallica & Creed and you'll find their high energy & hard rocking sound. With soaring melodies from Johnny Rossa's powerful vocals and heavy guitar riffs and Chris Van Duyn's infectious guitar work, the songs will leave you both satisfied yet undoubtedly yearning for more. "When we set out to start the album 'Under The Influence' the objective was to have it ROCK while remaining organic, tight and something easily reproduced live," says guitarist Chris Van Duyn. "It's clear we accomplished that goal as the album sounds HUGE but is not layer upon layer of overdubbed guitars and vocals that would never be able to be reproduced in a live setting and still retain the same sound." With the priceless support of world-class musicians Rafael Moreira producing (and playing bass) and Randy Cooke on drums the project is a true powerhouse.

Thief In The Night brings a fresh modern sound to their heavy, melodic hard rock clearly rooted in classic rock bands. The album starts off with Van Duyn's heavy guitar riffs that drive the songs, the powerful vocals of Johnny Rossa takes the songs to a whole other level and cement the power of the fresh sound created out of the classic guitar, bass, drums rock band. With comparisons to more contemporary bands such as Soundgarden, Tool, Alter Bridge and Creed, they are clearly rooted in the classics of bands such as Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath (with a little Rush thrown in). The sound is never trendy but is clearly ROCK from beginning to end. They hit you with a lot of energy.

Johnny Rossa’s vocals are amazing and bring these songs to life with such passion and energy. Guitar World Magazine writer David Reffet and hard rock; heavy metal guitarist/singer/producer (who founded the band “Shredding the Envelope’) says of Rossa's vocals, “reminds me of my buddy Neil Turbin who sang on the first Anthrax CD "Fistful Of Metal." “Truly one of the best and most powerful vocalist around” adds Van Duyn ”and by far the most humble and nicest guy I could hope to get to work with”. Rossa brings his skills and experience to 'Thief In The Night' that include work with some of the best including Mark Tremonti of Creed/Alter Bridge; members of Pink, Bush, Cheap Trick's bands to name a few and has toured with artists such as Puddle of Mudd whom he played harmonica and keys for on the road which included an appearance on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

"The vocal in this one is slaying!" says Randy Cooke who provided his incredibly powerful and always tasty yet technically sophisticated drum work to the album. Cooke has recorded and toured with a lengthy list of artists including Five For Fighting, Smash Mouth, Kelly Clarkson, Ian Gillan (of Deep Purple), Colin Hay (of Men at Work), Mick Jagger to name a few as well as toured in Ringo Starr's band. Randy currently resides in Los Angeles where he maintains a busy recording/touring schedule.

Eclectic artist, song writer and highly acclaimed guitarist Rafael Moreira produced the album’s primary five, full band performances as well as plays bass and co-wrote four of the songs. “I'm proud of what we accomplished” says Rafael, whom is by far no stranger to creating great rock music. Besides his own powerful rock trio Magnetico, Rafael has performed as lead guitarist and backing vocalist with some of music’s most recognized artists, ranging from and including Paul Stanley (KISS), Don Felder (The Eagles), Steven Tyler (Aerosmith), P!nk, Christina Aguilera, Stevie Wonder, Dave Navarro, Natasha Bedingfield, Tommy Lee, Sheryl Crow and many others. Van Duyn first heard Rafa when he gained a broader fan base while appearing in the House Band for CBS’s Rock Star: INXS and Rock Star: Supernova. Currently lead guitarist as well on season 3 of 'The Voice', Rafael has been drawing fans of broad musical tastes with his intricate guitar-heavy songs and thought-provoking lyrics. “Having Rafa bring that experience and expertise to produce 'Under The Influence' has been a honor as he has brought the very best out of every aspect of the songs, the musicianship, the entire sound and so much more,” says Van Duyn.

Legendary vocalist, songwriter and actress Dilana says this about the album, “It sounds sick! I have a feeling this CD is gonna go places!”

"Reminds me of the good old rock days! Deep Purple, Thin Lizzy, Zeppelin, " says Ken Roberts who recently engineered acoustic "unplugged" tracks for Van Duyn & Rossa. ”Reminds me of one of my favorite albums of all time, "Bridge Of Sighs" by guitarist Robin Trower's” adds Roberts.
