“The new Hercules show consists of myself and Alec Storey from the project Second Storey presenting songs from my ten-year catalogue in a wholly new and reinvigorated way.
“The vocal component of the show will come from the original vocalist’s performances and use material from recording sessions through the years. The recorded vocals might be manipulated, or feature previously unheard takes or vamps from the sessions.
“Now with the freedom to manipulate all aspects of the show sonically, I will be able to veer into territory from my back catalogue that felt harder to explore previously. There will be a new live visual presentation as well, conceived and executed by myself and Joie Iacono under our Hoarder A/V project.”*
