 Notes & Reviews
 
From MARTIN PAGE -- the artist who brought you the smash hit, 'IN THE HOUSE OF STONE AND LIGHT' (the award-winning chart topper that broke records in Billboard charts), and the writer of these classic hits: 'These Dreams' (Heart), 'We Built This City' (Starship), 'Dancing In Heaven' (Q-Feel), 'King Of Wishful Thinking' and 'Faithful' (Go West) and 'Fallen Angel' (Robbie Robertson) -- comes the long-awaited, soul-stirring follow-up album, 'IN THE TEMPLE OF THE MUSE'. This soulful work is spiritually charged with Page's trademark layers of melodic atmosphere and emotive vocal performances. Guest players include Jimmy Copley (Tears For Fears, Jeff Beck)-Drums, Neil Taylor (Robbie Williams, Tears For Fears, Peter Gabriel)-Guitar, Bill Dillon (Robbie Robertson, Daniel Lanois, Peter Gabriel, Sara McLachlan)-Guitars, and Jack Hues (Wang Chung)-Guitar. ''In The Temple Of The Muse' is such a wonderfully rich body of work that looks at a wide range of emotional landscapes within the human heart. Like a great wine, it's a work that deepens your appreciation of it upon each subsequent listen you give it.' - Ritch Esra, Publisher, Co-founder, A&R Registry 'The singer-songwriter-producer (has) created a personal recording that is a midlife meditation on love, loss and growth. His finely crafted pop-rock songs reveal an appreciation for what matters as time passes.' - Steven Rosenfeld, ASCAP Audio Portraits 'When I sit down to write music, the first thing is to move my emotions, and I'm hopeful that other people will feel the same way I do.' - Martin Page MARTIN PAGE - BIO MARTIN PAGE, who hails from Southampton, England, first gained recognition as a songwriter in the early 80's with Top-40 hits for Kim Carnes and Earth, Wind & Fire, among others. With Bernie Taupin, whose usual partner was Elton John (and with Dennis Lambert & Peter Wolf), Page wrote 'WE BUILT THIS CITY,' a Number One Hit for Starship (their first) in 1985.
