Composer Kitt Wakeley has a taste for both rock music and virtuosic rock musicians. He’s currently gearing up to release his new album, The Symphony of Sinners & Saints Volume II: The Storm and has shared the latest single: a reworking of Led Zeppelin’s Stairway To Heaven featuring a scorching solo from Orianthi.
