Kee Marcello Scaling Up Tour+ support Iconic Eye

Kee Marcello is one of the most renowned guitarists out of Scandinavia with an amazing track record. From the hugely successful Swedish glam / pop group "Noise" in the early 80ís through to the first U.S. Major Label deal ever signed by a Scandinavian.

In the late eighties and early nineties Europe was one of the biggest rock bands in the World. They sold over 30 million albums, landed No. 1ís on the sales charts in 26 countries and shared the biggest stages with acts like Metallica, Def Leppard & Bon Jovi. Kee joined the band in 1986 when Europe got their big break with The Final Countdown album and toured all over the world with Europe releasing two more albums with the band: Out of This World and Prisoners in Paradise.

Marcello once said: "Being a guitar player at this level is not a choice, itís rather a perk of my addictive personality". The same mechanisms that almost killed him while living the rockíníroll lifestyle to the extreme also made him never lose sight.

The technical perfection and feel that Kee strives for as a guitar player has developed an original tone and trademark Les Paul sound. He has the ability to play extremely fast, and yet every note is crisp and clear. These characteristics along with his sense of melody in writing the most memorable solos (Europe's "Superstitious" for example) makes him stand out among the many talented guitar players in the world. Not only does he have the track record to show it but now Gibson have decided to make Kee his very own signature model. Needless to say, this will mean he will join a group of very special and elite guitar players who have been given this special honour.

A man of many talents. This guy is not only a World-class guitar player, he is also a much acclaimed singer / songwriter and producer with multimillion selling songs in his catalogue (Swedish Metal aids platinum selling record "Give a Helpin' Hand" for e.g.) Heís even been a musical star when he starred in the unique Swedish production of "Rock of Ages" acting as himself in a part written for especially him. The musical was a massive success and played to sold out houses in Stockholm, Gothenburg and Helsingborg for four seasons.

Since his Europe days, Kee has released 4 solo albums. The latest release "JUDAS KISS" (2013) features 13 rockíníroll tracks with a touch of blues, all accompanied by Marcelloís powerful, yet soulful vocals and trademark guitar sound. This album received excellent reviews upon release and was described by the press as "adrenaline pumping / catchy / raw and densely packed with sturdy melodies and razor sharp axe work".

Over the years Kee has built up a solid fan-base all over the world which keeps him busy touring with his band, recording, television, demonstrating, guitar clinics and guesting with other great musicians and bands such as Deep Purple, Paul Gilbert, Alanah Myles and In-Flames. On stage this man can still "tear it up" and aims for musical perfection as well as putting on a show that the fans will never forget. Fans that have never been fortunate enough to witness Kee and the band live will soon get the opportunity as a forthcoming live dvd will be released later this year. This Live concert film / documentary was recorded during the 2 week UK Tour that took place in October.
