New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Chuck Dunn Official Website) - Legendary guitarist Rich "The Duke" Ward has produced the new EP for Tafel Recording artist Chuck Dunn. Ward's background as the thrashing guitarist for bands Stuck Mojo and Fozzy (featuring Chris Jericho), was the perfect fit as producer for Chuck and his unique music style. When Wardmet Dunn for the first time,he immediately recognized his natural ability and the opportunity to produce Chuck's music.
Considered one of the hottest up and coming rockers to come out of the Atlanta Rock scene, 23 year old Dunn's undeniable knack for writing with un-abandoned intensity provided a visual backdrop of struggle and breakthrough for his songs. Chuck's experience as a US Marine stationed in Iraq helped paint a picture of vivid and thought provoking imagery of a dark and desolate atmospheric battlefield.
Chuck and his band soon found themselves at Virtuo Studios in Atlanta, GA, with Rich at the helm of production. They set out to collectively capture the dynamic melodies and razor-sharp grooves of the songs. The result is a 5 song EP which captures Chucks melodic vocals and searing guitar licks, reminiscent of his music influences of Metallica, Zakk Wylde, Audioslave, and Ben Harper.
On October 23, 2010, Chuck performed his new songs as one of the opening acts for singer Ed Kowalczyk, at 99X's 'Unplugged in the Park' concert in Atlanta, GA. The show was a perfect backdrop as the official release of his Tafel Records self titled EP.
