Art Of Melody Music & Burning Minds Music Group are excited to announce the signing of International melodic rock project, Shining Line, for the release of their brand new official studio album, “Shine On Me”.  

Shining Line was conceived by primary songwriter/drummer Pierpaolo “Zorro” Monti and his long-time friend and bassist, Amos Monti. The self-titled debut album first took the melodic rock world by storm in 2010. An outstanding guest list of over thirty internationally-renowned singers and musicians brought their individual class to each track on Shining Line – one of the most critically-acclaimed AOR albums of the decade. The bombastic production was overseen by none other than multi-talented melodic rock giant, Alessandro Del Vecchio (Edge Of Forever, Hardline).

Now, after eleven years, Shining Line is ready to start moving wheels of its long awaited come-back. Pierpaolo “Zorro” Monti takes over the production duties, together with his long-time music partner, Davide “Dave Rox” Barbieri. This time, Andrew Trabelsi, the highly-talented keyboard player and songwriter from Burning Minds Music Group’s Alchemy, joins the new star-studied roster, together with another key figure in the Monti/Barbieri’s production team, the extraordinary axeman Steve De Biasi. Furthermore, renowned British novelist, Peter Darley, will provide his talent in the co-writing of all the lyrics of the album. Alessandro Del Vecchio returns also to Shining Line after more than a decade, to lend his legendary touch to the mixing and mastering.  

“Shine On Me” is expected for release in 2022 via Art Of Melody Music / Burning Minds Music Group. Cover artwork and graphics will be developed by Aeglos Art. Additional info about guests, tracklist and more will follow in the forthcoming months.
