Fortune released their self-titled debut album in 1985 on Camel/MCA Records (the same label that had launched Night Ranger and Giuffria to stardom). The album is still highly regarded today by fans of the AOR genre thanks to the soaring vocals of Larry Greene (also featured on the Top Gun Soundtrack) and to the magnificent blending of the keyboards sound of Roger Scott Craig with Mick Fortune’s guitar. The band called it quits shortly after the release because of the bankruptcy of their label.
The band remained silent for years and while Larry Greene and Roger Scott Craig started working together with the band Harlan Cage, the Fortune brothers started the band back up again as a trio in 2006, until a proper band reunion happened in 2016 when the band performed at “Rockingham Rock Festival” in 2016 and – by public demand – again in 2017.
These appearances led to discussions with Frontiers about a new studio-album (that will be released in 2019) as well as their participation at “Frontiers Rock Festival”. So here they are. A sure winner for all AOR fans!
