“SERENITY” Is Top 5 at Classic Rock Radio

(New York, NY) – Guitar legend Neal Schön is enjoying great success at Classic Rock radio with his track "Serenity." "Serenity" is comfortably seated in the Top 5 and has risen as high as #2, alongside such mainstays as Led Zeppelin and Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers; the song has been on the charts for 8 weeks. Check out the lyric video here. "Serenity" is taken from Neal Schön's latest album SO U, a jazz and blues-inspired hard rock studio album featuring Schön, bassist Marco Mendoza (Black Star Riders, Ted Nugent, Whitesnake, Thin Lizzy) and drummer Deen Castronovo (Journey, Ozzy Osbourne, Steve Vai, Hardline). The three musicians split vocal and writing duties, with many of the tracks also co-written by Night Ranger/Damn Yankee’s songwriter, singer and bassist Jack Blades. The album is available now via iTunes, Amazon and via the Journey online store.

Of SO U, Ultimate Classic Rock raved, "SO U stands tall as one of the finest albums that Neal Schön has released to date. The combination of Schön with Deen Castronovo and Marco Mendoza is a potent triple threat which delivers on every level. With nine tracks spread over 51 minutes, SO U never overstays its welcome and the typically diverse blend of material will strongly resonate with fans of Schön‘s previous work, most notably Santana and Journey. I’ll be standing by and waiting for a sequel."
