Melodic Revolution Records Celebrates and Pays Tribute to 15-year Music History “Sands of Time A Music Revolution 2006/2021”
Where has the time gone? We cannot believe it ourselves; it seems like yesterday that launched a record label to give a voice to those that needed to be heard. We discovered Echoes Landing on an old social network and fell in love with their self-titled debut leading to our decision to build Melodic Revolution Records (MRR) to promote that album. The band would later change their name and is better known as Scarlet Hollow who are still with MRR. To date, we have released a single, an EP, and two full-length releases in addition to two solo albums by these talented musicians.
This was just the beginning; we now celebrate our fifteenth anniversary with over 100 releases to date.
As a thank you to our supporters old and new, we have assembled a special digital release, “Sands of Time A Music Revolution 2006/2021”. We hope that this release will provide our listeners the opportunity to rediscover music that you may have forgotten about and discover music you may have never heard.
We consider all music progressive that has a new and cutting-edge sound and doesn’t follow the formulaic patterns of mainstream music. “Sands of Time A Music Revolution 2006/2021” is a testament that not all great music must be released via mainstream record labels. What you will experience it is an album that represents our slogan “Music you didn’t know you would love”. The album starts with the very first artist/band that we signed to the label and ends with our latest signing.
Although the sequencing of the album is straightforward; it was not an easy task to curate the songs for this release. Our first thought was to use the songs that grabbed our attention which resulted in the signing of an artist/band. However, after months of consideration and deliberation, we decided to showcase fan favorites.
This album is an excellent representation of where we started, where we have been, and where we are going. “Sands of Time A Music Revolution 2006/2021” also includes music by many fantastic artists from our sub-label PeacockSunrise Records, which is firmly in the where we are going category. PeacockSunrise Records is a natural progression of us and is still in its infancy but growing fast.
“Sands of Time A Music Revolution 2006/2021” is not for sale, but as of today, it is available for full streaming. Each track has a link that will provide more band and album information and in most cases links for more music and ways to support the artist/band. Sadly, some of these artists/bands may no longer be together; they may have morphed into other bands or may not even be in this business of creating music.
We would like to dedicate this release to some people that were very important to us and our history. First, we would like to dedicate this album to Phil Naro who was part of over a dozen releases including DDRIVE, Unified Past, When Friends Come Out and Play, Colin Tench Project, Corvus Stone, King Friday, Kings, Backhand among others.
The second dedication goes out to Colin Tench who released many albums, singles, and EPs with Andres Guazzelli, Corvus Stone, The Minstrel’s Ghost, Andy John Bradford’s’ Oceans5, Colin Tench Project, Halo, Transmission Rails, and more.
And to Peter Jorgensen, we had just started our musical partnership earlier in the year with the release Immaterial Witness by his band Phoen1x. There were plans on releasing many more.
Finally with deep appreciation and respect for those who were part of our releases; including special guests, studio musicians and those who have inspired us, but no longer with us.
Thank you for sticking with us over the years and being part of this journey. If not for you… MRR and its family of artists would not exist. We look forward to serving you for many years to come.
