Flying Colors Joins Heavy Metal Truants' Monster Rock Auction with Once-in-a-Lifetime Experience

In support of Heavy Metal Truants Monster Rock Auction, Flying Colors (Steve Morse, Dave LaRue, Neal Morse, Casey McPherson, Mike Portnoy) have offered a "Create a Song" experience to record a song with the band and their team. The winner will write a song with creative guidance from the band, have studio time with their exec producer, and mix/master with their engineers. The auction is in aid of Nordoff Robbins, ChildLine and Teenage Cancer Trust.

Got a song? Work with Flying Colors and their team to bring it from conception to shiny master.

Make some serious music, and have some serious fun doing it. Start by sending your demo to Steve Morse, Casey McPherson, Neal Morse, Dave LaRue and Mike Portnoy. They'll each listen, and send you back their individual, creative feedback. Then, hit the studio with Bill Evans, and track your masterpiece with mirth and fervor. Next, have your song mixed by Rich Mouser, the man behind their albums as well as every studio release by Transatlantic, Neal Morse, and Spock's Beard. Next up, give your song the final polish with mastering by Dan Shike, the golden ears behind their #1-charting  Live from Europe, and many other chart-topping albums. It's the full Flying Colors experience! (Please see the auction listing here for full details.)

Working with these charities is dear to the hearts of Flying Colors as guitarist Steve Morse comments, "I strongly believe in all three of these charities, and can't wait to help the winner with their music.” Bassist Dave LaRue offers, “I'm very excited to be part of this auction, and of having the opportunity to help with these great causes…and even to hear some new music in doing it!” Singer Casey McPherson adds, “I'm honored to be apart of doing good with music, can't wait to see who wins!”
