AOR BIOGRAPHY

Frédéric Slama was born in Paris, France but lived in L.A. for more than 10 years where he became friend with many famous artists & studio players. After releasing a couple of solo albums in the 80’s and producing some French and American artists, Frédéric decided to start a “one man band”. This marked the birth of his project AOR, always using the cream of U.S session players. In 2000, the first album L.A Concession was released and gave Frédéric a big respect in the Westcoast / AOR music scene. The second album Next Stop L.A was released one year later and again featured the help of several top session players such as Richard Page, Tony Franklin, Michael Thompson, Steve George & Carlos Vega.

It was in 2002 that Frédéric Slama took AOR to a new dimension with the critically acclaimed third album L.A Reflection, which was considered to be the best Westcoast CD of the year by many journalists and fans alike. It featured all the big names in  the music industry including Steve Lukather, Mike Porcaro, Jeff Porcaro, David Paich (all Toto members) and a line up of stars like Tommy Denander, Göran Edman, Michael Landau, Vinnie Colaiuta, Michael Ruff, Bruce Gaitsch, Rick Riso and lots of other top L.A. artists. The album became a huge success and was co-produced by AOR-legend Tommy Denander and world famous L.A. producer David Diggs.

In 2003, Frédéric Slama was back with an even greater CD, which again featured the best musicians any Westcoast and melodic rock fan could possibly imagine: Bill Champlin (Chicago), Steve Overland (FM), Steve Lukather (Toto), Michael Landau, Bruce Gaitch, Brandon Fields among many others and two Westcoast legends who hadn't recorded anything for over 20 years: David Roberts & Dane Donohue! This album was called Dreaming Of L.A and again co-produced by Tommy Denander and David Diggs.

In 2004, Frédéric released Nothing But The Best, an album featuring the best songs from his previous CDs, fully remastered by Tommy Denander  plus 3 brand new unreleased tracks featuring Fergie Frederiksen (Toto) and Dane Donohue on lead vocals.

In 2006 AOR released a new CD called L.A. Attraction once again featuring the talents of many great AOR / Westcoast stars including Philip Bardowell, Steve Lukather (Toto), Tommy Denander, Dane Donohue, Michael Landau, Peter Friedstedt or Rick Riso among others. This time, AOR developed a slightly different musical approach and moved into a more rock-oriented direction: L.A. Attraction sounded like a mix between Toto, Radioactive and Richard Marx and was a real feast for all AOR and melodic rock aficionados! The same year Frédéric re-released officialy his 1st album L.A Concession (only available on Cdr at the time) fully remastered with 4 bonus tracks and a list of impressive guests again.

In 2009, the magic trio was back: Frédéric Slama ,Tommy Denander & Philip Bardowell teamed up again for a new album Journey To L.A, taking Westcoast and AOR music to a new level of perfection. With the help of top session players such as Steve Overland (FM), Steve Lukather & Fergie Frederiksen (Toto), Dane Donohue, Bill Champlin (Chicago), Bruno Levesque (Silence) & many more, Frédéric delivered by far his most impressive and melodic work in the vein of Toto, Foreigner or Survivor, mixing elements of westcoast with more Aor rock oriented songs.

To celebrate AOR’s 10th Anniversary, Frédéric Slama & Escape Music proudly announce the release of a double limited edition Digipack CD entitled LA Ambition.This CD is the very best of AOR from the last 10 years with 5 previously unreleased demos from the 90’s & new mixes. “LA Ambition” is fully re-mastered and features songs from the 8 AOR releases spanning the last ten years. The CD is a two disc compilation containing the Melodic rock hits on disc one, and th Westcoast hits on disc two, with 28 songs in all. L.A Ambition features more than 40 top musicians including Tommy Denander, Steve Overland (FM), Steve Lukather & Fergie Frederiksen (Toto), Dane Donohue, Bill Champlin (Chicago), Göran Edman, Philip Bardowell, Michael Landau, David Roberts, Michael Ruff, Bruce Gaitsch, Vinnie Colaiuta, Rick Riso & many more. L.A Ambition is a dream come true and contains all the finest songs from AOR like you’ve never heard them before!
