Phoenix, AZ, January, 2005 - Bill Slater and Mike Shellans have released their first CD of all-original music.
Slater and Shellans first met when a mutual friend brought them together to work in The Light Brothers band; the two then joined forces to produce their debut CD at Full Well Studios in Phoenix last May. Entitled Living in Absentia, the ten-track CD features all-original music performed, arranged, and produced by Slater and Shellans. Bill sings and plays acoustic and electric guitars, electric bass, and keyboards and Mike sings and plays keyboards, keyboard bass, acoustic and electric mandolins, and trombone.
Bill Slater is an award-winning video editor and president of Edit Alchemy, L.L.C., his own production company. Singing and songwriting for over thirty years, Slater claims a wide variety of musical influences, from Aerosmith to Frank Zappa.
Mike Shellans has been on the music faculty of Arizona State University since 1983 and has taught such courses as Jazz in America, Popular Music, The Beatles and Elvis Presley to over 30,000 students. He spent over twenty years as a professional trombonist, and now plays jazz piano in several valley bands.
"Music is the universal language, and after years of playing professionally, I feel as if I am finally speaking the lingo. I hope others enjoy this music as much as we did putting it
together", says Slater. Adds Shellans, "the opportunity to produce a CD of this quality, featuring my musical friends, has always been a dream. With Living in Absentia, we do a little bit of everything- Jazz, Reggae, Pop and Rock and Roll." Supported by Jeff Stanley on drums, the CD also features a number of guest artists, including guitarist Jimi Powers, singer Mindy Nilson, saxophonists Jerry Donato, Tyler Isaacson and David Chapp, cellist Rachel Harris-Mazzullo, trumpeter Dave Coolidge and trombonist Doug Robinson.
