In the Shade by UndercoverThe West Coast Rock sound is born!
Composer, Gwen Greenway and Lyricist, Ken Mayo
Ken and Gwen began writing together after many years of playing in various rock bands in Vancouver. Their mutual love of country, jazz, Latin, and classical styles inspired this melodic collaboration. Each song tells a story of the trials of the heart and is brought to life through the soaring vocal performances of Tania Hancheroff. Tania's unique voice captivates the listener as she conveys the emotion and imagery of these pieces. Undercover's sound is a finely-crafted mix of Vancouver's top players, skilfully engineered at Riverside Recording Studio. The result is an amazing compilation of uplifting songs which will enhance any CD collection.
