Flying Colors: Mike Portnoy Post Behind The Scenes Footage

Flying Colors, the new virtuoso prog/pop/rock band featuring drummer Mike Portnoy (ex-Dream Theater), guitarist Steve Morse (Deep Purple), keyboardist/vocalist Neal Morse (Transatlantic, ex-Spock's Beard), bassist David LaRue (Dixie Dregs) and lead vocalist/guitarist) Casey McPherson (Alpha Rev) recently released their debut album. Portnoy has posted footage of Morse and McPherson working on the lyrics for "The Storm".

"The album has bits and pieces of what you'd expect from each of us,” says Portnoy. “The sum of all its parts led to brand new, unchartered territory for everyone involved." 

The formation of Flying Colors began with a simple idea: virtuoso musicians and a pop singer joining together to make new-fashioned music the old fashioned way. Refreshing, classic, old and new, the recordings are saturated with the many styles, tones and hues of the players who, in becoming a band, have delivered a unique fusion of vintage craftsmanship and contemporary music.
