Guest Biography

Multi-platinum selling, Grammy nominated singer/songwriter Geoff Tate is regarded as one of the most skilled vocalists in the rock genre with hundreds of modern, popular artists citing him and his band as a major influence. Combining social consciousness and expertly crafted lyrics with high-energy, melodically complex music, Geoff and his band have become internationally recognized as the thinking man’s rock band.

In all, Geoff has recorded 12 studio albums; several live albums and will release his 2nd solo album in 2013. Queensrÿche has been nominated for a Grammy four times and has had their music featured in three feature films.

Since their inception, the band has sold over 25 million albums worldwide and has performed in over 46 countries.

The band received worldwide acclaim after the release of their 1988 album Operation: Mindcrime, which is often considered one of the greatest concept albums of all time.

Their follow-up release, Empire, included the hit single "Silent Lucidity". The song was the biggest hit for the band, it peaked at #9 on the Billboard Hot 100 and at #1 on the Billboard Album Rock Tracks chart.

Queensrÿche is world renowned for their innovative and trend-setting sound.

While changing the band name to Operation Mindcrime, Geoff began working on one of his most ambitious project, a three part concept album with the first album recorded early 2015. Geoff says …“The songs on these records tell a story, and each song is a scene or chapter — every scene is different,” he added. “The words tell the story, the musical bed, the chord progressions and melodies, they set the pace. That’s how I envisioned this album in total, very theatrical and definitely cinematic.”
