Ivory Knight Guitarist Rob Gravelle Takes Hiatus From Band to Record Solo CD

Rob Gravelle, guitarist for the Canadian Power Metal group Ivory Knight, has decided to take a sabbatical from the band to record his debut solo CD, tentatively entitled "No Plan B." Rob joined the band in 2000 and played on both their "Up from the Ashes" and "Unconscience" CDs. Rob's decision to record a solo CD came about while recording with guitar legend, producer, and Annihilator mastermind, Jeff Waters.

"I just wrote so much material for that album that I was already half done the music for my own CD by the time we had finished recording" recalls Rob. Look for "No Plan B" sometime in the spring of '09.

Meanwhile, Rob is also recording covers of classic rock songs in his own trademark prog/speed/classic metal style. The Police's "Synchronicity II" already available for download on iTunes and other digital download applications. Watch for covers of The Sweet's "Ballroom Blitz," Cheap Trick's "Dream Police," and the "Barber of Seville" Overture in the very near future.

Rob has released a number of recordings over the years with various acts including Sudden Thunder, Dr. Squish and others. In early 2000, Rob joined Ivory Knight, and has since become a major contributor to the band's songs and sound.

I can't wait to hear it! I bought Unconscience and was blown away by the leads! Jeff Waters is one of the best players in metal, and his influence on Gravelle can only lead to great things. Way to go Rob!
