Steve Walsh is known for his work as the frontman of the progressive rock band Kansas, from which he retired in 2014. On his new solo album Black Butterfly the influences from his past are brought together in some compact rock songs. Steve wrote the 14 songs of the album together with the Swedish musician Tommy Denander and the Christian rocker Jerome Mazza takes the lead vocals on three songs. The music goes from the sounds of Kansas ("The Piper") to the beats of "Warsaw" and the political news on "Billy Carbone Dead". Black Butterfly is a wonderful return to Walsh' studio work.
Whoever speaks out the name of Steve Walsh will directly think about the massive worldwide success of the American rock band Kansas. He was the lead vocalist and multi-instrumentalist on their well-received albums Leftoverture and Point of Know Return as well as on their single hits "Carry On Wayward Son" and "Dust in the Wind". Their progressive songs were interspersed with rock ballads and attracted a massive following.
