Alex Lifeson guest appearance on Keram Malicki-Sanchez album Come to Life
Canadian-born actor and musician Keram Malicki-Sanchez has started an online campaign via IndieGogo to raise the funds he needs to finish an album titled Come to Life that he has spent seven years creating along with 20 other renowned artists, one of whom is Alex Lifeson. Malicki-Sanchez met Lifeson while working on the film Irvine Welsh's Ecstasy, where Lifeson played the role of Dr. Figg. In addition to playing guitar on the album, Lifeson also was executive producer as described on the IndieGogo page:
RUSH Fans will want to hear these never before heard tracks featuring guitar work by Alex Lifeson! Alex did more than just play on the record, he became a mentor and executive producer, and in turn brought mixer Rich Chycki (RUSH, Aerosmith, Jonny Lang, Pink) on to mix "Mary Magdalene" which set a new standard for the rest of our mixes and mastering engineer Andy Vandette (Metric, David Bowie, Porcupine Tree) to master the the songs, thus some of the most important people responsible for making Rush records sound like they do.
You can find out all the details including how to secure your own copy of Come to Life on the IndieGogo page here. There's also this YouTube video where Malicki-Sanchez discusses the project. He talks about Alex's contributions at about the 2:35 mark.
