Palace Terrace was conceptualized
by George Bellas when he set out to put together a vocal oriented
band that had exceptional musical skills and saw the song
as the most important element.
George Bellas was discovered and brought to the public's eye
by Mike Varney of Shrapnel Records in the 1990's. He is well
known for his technical prowess on the guitar and equally
well for his prolific composing abilities. He has been playing
guitar and writing music since the age of seven and has a
long list of album credits that include some of the most talented
musicians on the globe.
George's new band Palace Terrace is a progressive and neoclassical
rock band that exhibits a theatrical and modern edge. Their
music combines superb musicianship, beautifully crafted melodies,
unique harmonic progressions, compelling stories, counterpoint,
large orchestrations, wide dynamics, odd meters, stunning
vocal arrangements and elaborate forms.
Palace Terrace was born when Composer George Bellas contacted
Tenor Vocalist Jonathan R Marshall and invited him to fill
the main vocalist spot in the band. The two discussed how
they would like to see the band debut as well as evolve into
the future, and sharing very similar visions the two began
working on their first album "Flying Through Infinity". George
composed all the music on the album and then incorporated
John's vocals throughout. John was diligent in learning the
vocal arrangements and executed them with the utmost authority.
The search for an extraordinary percussionist was much of
a concern for George, and it was a long but fruitful ambition,
but then he eventually discovered the prolific talents of
Percussionist Sasha Horn.
Palace Terrace will publicly debut with their album titled
"Flying Through Infinity" during the fourth quarter of 2007.
The album will be released worldwide on the Lion Music record
