I’ve been in contact with Bill Leeb, Rhys Fulber and also Gary Levermore who ran the label Third Mind where the album was released. [more...]

Joanna comes from a musical background – her father is Sweden’s own italo disco pioneer Paul Rein – but her life could have taken another direction if her student loans hadn’t run out. [more...]
