We are thrilled to announce the release of Friends the new album by Gayle Ellett & The Electromags. The album features twelve new tracks and 22 special guests from around the globe.
On this, their sophomore release, the Electromags are back with a vengeance. Still based on the core group of Ellett (guitar & keyboards), Craig Kahn (drums), and Mark Cook (bass), their new album Friends features twenty-two guest musicians from around the world, including many from the Progressive Rock community.
With contributions from members of BARAKA (Japan), Minimum Vital (France), Aisles (Chile), Electric Swan (Italy), Shylock (Germany), Edhels (Monaco), California Guitar Trio (USA) and others. Said Ellett “I wanted to get all my friends together on one album, folks I’ve known since high school and college, musicians I networked within the 80s and 90’s, and friends from my hometown of Topanga, such as 5-time Grammy Award winner Alfonso Rodenas and others.
