After years of providing guitar work for a number of Long Island bands, Sean Virag, songwriter for SVS, compiled the last several years of songwriting into these personal recordings.
The upcoming SVS debut album “Higher Calling”, set for release by September 2016, will feature vindictive rock songs Reap What You Sow and Don’t Need a Reason to Cry as well as inspirational songs Sign From Above and Higher Calling. The songs reflect the trials and tribulations of everyday life, discontent, conspiracy and political malaise. Add to this backdrop screaming rock guitars, deeply personal lyrics along with catchy vocal melodies and you get the raw musical connection of SVS.
With the help of veteran Long Island musicians Erik Friedman (bass/vocals/harmonica), Drew Bertrand (drums), Mike Katzman (organ/piano), Katie Pearlman (drums/vocals), Rorie Kelly (vocals) Jeff Pearlman (organ), Don Torillo (alto/tenor saxophone), SVS has recorded a considerable collection of haunting, yet uplifting, music that is instantly recognizable. When SVS is not performing, Sean Virag’s guitar work is well in demand for recording or live performance including bands and singer/songwriters.( https://soundbetter.com/profiles/32622-sean-virag).
