DeLuc's new CD, 8th Wonder, is an expressive, rock-inspired fusion release from two Australian musicians, drummer Gino Saracino and guitarist Fred Leduc. This almost all-instrumental release ("Together We Touch" includes vocals by Ken Auriant) of Leduc-penned compositions features twelve tracks of emotional, sonically adventurous images, tied together by Leduc's poignant, mesmerizing guitar melodies and Saracino's supple drum work. Leduc is a top-notch soloist in his own right, as most songs allow ample space for his scorching lead breaks and precise melodic runs. DeLuc were assisted on 8th Wonder by session musicians such as bassist Marcel Yammouni and keyboardist Phil Turcio. 8th Wonder will delight fusion fans seeking a high level of musicianship and memorable songs.
Fred Leduc formerly composed and performed with the progressive metal act Vaudervihl who were distributed by Zero Corporation in Japan. Fred engineers recording for Northern Metropolitan Tafe and various productions. Fred also has a Certificate in Jazz Performance at Tafe level and is currently undertaking a Bachelor of Music at La Trobe University. Gino Saracino has worked as a session musician for many years and has performed in the Melbourne scene with both original and cover acts. Gino is a recognized musician throughout Melbourne and has been both reviewed by drum magazines and endorsed by distributors.
DeLuc has acquired distribution both in Australia and Europe and is working towards distribution in the United States. Fred Leduc is continuously working on new material for future recordings with the second DeLuc CD in sight.
