Music Theories, a division of the Mascot Label Group, has announced a September 27 release date for Derek Sherinian’s Oceana. Recognized by many as the premiere rock keyboardist of his generation, Sherinian has performed for millions via the vehicles of Black Country Communion (of which he is a current member alongside Glenn Hughes, Jason Bonham, Joe Bonamassa), Dream Theater, Alice Cooper, Buddy Miles, and as an off-stage performer accompanying KISS.
He also enjoyed tenures with Billy Idol, Yngwie Malmsteen and many others. Favoring a guitar heavy rock based approach to fusion ala one of his musical heroes Jeff Beck, Oceana once again displays the power and energy Sherinian creates in the studio, setting him apart from most jazz fusion ensembles in the process. He displays the rare combination of being a musical chameleon, while maintaining his signature style in no matter what genre he is playing in. With Oceana, the stage is set for Sherinian’s inspiration to be propelled in to the mainstream.
