“I’ve been dating Frontiers Records since I started working with Jeff Scott Soto. They always wanted my authorial work and gave total freedom to choose the musicians who would form the band. I just chose very competent friends and musicians who know me perfectly”, said BJ. “The name Spektra came from a great friend who said he wanted to make a band with that name for a long time, but it had a lot more to do with my sound than his, so I just put K in place of C. Me I loved the name and the sound, it sounds strong”, he added.
