Toronto, ON - November 6, 2008 -- Steve Negus, the powerhouse behind the multi-platinum selling prog rock band Saga for over 20 years has now released a solo project that captures his signature drumming and songwriting in uncompromising style.

Aptly called "Dare to Dream", the album is comprised of 11 tracks drawn from years of material written during and after the Saga era and is a very personal reflection on his career to date and in looking towards the future. Featuring a guest appearance by Jim Gilmour of Saga fame and also veterans Al Langlade and Mark Severn (who died shortly after the project was completed), the album is diverse and compelling, drawing the listener in with complex rhythms, insightful lyrics and catchy hooks.

Steve Negus has this to say: "I have every confidence in label owner Brad Trew's abilities to represent my best interests with the release of my first solo CD "Dare to Dream" and subsequent releases. I see this relationship as a long term commitment on both of our parts to bring my music to the people. I am delighted to have Brad and his team as part of the Negus extended family."

What type of music can we expect BTREW? Will it be of interest to the prog community?

Hi Bob,  Negus has been included on PA in Crossover Prog.  I am actually currently listening to the album as I type this.  I am enjoying it, and I think that it will appeal to prog fans such as myself that like the pop side of prog.

Didn't this album come out like 9 months or so ago?  I still haven't heard it, but I'd like to.

Best Regards,
