La Paz are a powerful melodic rock band. Based in Scotland, they toured extensively during the mid to late 1980s, were well respected musically and built a very healthy and loyal fan base. They were covered regularly in the UK music press and were on the cusp of a recording contract when...well, when one of the reversals of fortune that happen in the music business
stepped in and their record company changed the script without warning.
Doogie White (vocals) headed off to London where he eventually joined Ritchie Blackmore in his final Rainbow lineup and that was pretty much that for La Paz...and then in January 2008, Doogie and Chic McSherry (guitar) were invited to play at the prestigious 96.3 Rock Radio's
1st Birthday Party. They played a 5 number acoustic set to almost 1000 people in The Garage, Glasgow along with a host of other rock luminaries (Gun, SAHB, Thunder, Logan, The Almighty).
That night was the first time they'd played together in almost 19
years and started the itch that just had to be scratched culminating
in them signing a recording contract with Metal Mind Productions:
Granite was released in Europe on February 13th
2012 and in the USA on March 6th.
The band are currently recording their latest album
- The Dark And The Light - due for release on Metal Mind
27th 2013 (UK an Europe) and June 4th (USA)
