Best known for being the guitar player hand-picked by Europe for the tour after the global takeover by the band on The Final Countdown, Kee Marcello ended up putting his signature sound on the Out of This World and Prisoners in Paradise albums. After leaving Europe, he has kept fairly quiet, but also releasing a few independent albums. Now, he comes back full force with a massive, arena-ready, hard rock release! This is the melodic, but ROCKING version of Europe that all the fans have been waiting for! (from Amazon)
With Scaling Up, the former EUROPE guitarist is using his past as a springboard to take a giant leap into the future. With the new music firmly grounded in the songwriting tradition that made him a multi-platinum rock star in the first place, Kee explores the boundaries of melodic hard rock with a contemporary performance that nods to his past and employs sizzling production. This is an album all his fans will have to pick their jaws up off the floor after hearing!
Kee Marcello is a unique artist in the hard rock genre. He has never stopped evolving and growing as both a writer and a guitarist and the new album illustrates how much he has managed to raise the bar yet again with both his guitar playing, singing and writing. (from Blabbermouth)
