Dennis “Fergie” Frederiksen is mostly known for being the former vocalist of Toto (on the “Isolation” album, released in 1984), he has been involved in a lot of other outstanding musical projects too. Trillion, LeRoux, Frederiksen/Philips, Mecca, Frederiksen/Denander and David London (solo album, under pseudonym) are simply a few worth mentioning. In 1999 he debuted as a solo artist with “Equilibrium”, an album which garnered great reviews in Europe and Japan and since then he has been offering quality Melodic Rock music to his legion of fans.
Fergie’s family emigrated from Denmark to the states more than
100 years ago and there is the connection to the Nordic name. He
was struggling with his sickness, Hepatitis C and got a
successful treatment in 2005, but when he was diagnosed with
liver cancer in 2010 his future looked quite dark once more. But
with good medication and positive friends, he fought through the
bad times and he's really using all his time to what he does
best. Sing and record great songs and release awesome albums.
It kicks off with a stunning track 'Last Battle of My War' with
magic instrumental roller-coasters and a healthy, strong voice
from Fergie. Great ballads like ‘I’ll Be the One’ are very
sensitive and personal. The fine duet with the Norwegian female
vocalist Issa Oversveen on 'Not Alone' is probably one of the
best blends of voices I've heard in a long time. Their vocal mix
was chosen with a gentle hand. Absolutely perfect. Their version
of Toto's 'Angel's Don't Cry' from "Isolation" is an upgrade in
all terms, just brilliant. Fergie sings even better on this
album and his voice has grown like an expensive bottle of fine
wine, he just gets better with time...
