Frontiers - A Tribute to Journey is the world's premiere tribute to the 80's rock pioneers - the ones responsible for selling over 75 million records, including some of rock's most venerable anthems. Twenty-five years after that iconic lineup last graced the stage, Frontiers has carried on the banner of separate ways, summer lovin', and open arms. As a tribute act, few - if any - have such a colorful back-story that blurs the line between tribute and the "real deal." When Frontiers formed in 2002, lead vocalist Jeremey Hunsicker had little motivation other than to enjoy time in front of audiences singing the songs that he was born to sing. Fate would play a different hand, however. In early 2007, Journey found themselves at a critical crossroad. Do they abandon their signature sound, forged by iconic vocalist Steve Perry - the soundtrack of millions of sweaty backseat hookups in the 80s, and rediscovered by the youth of the new millennium? After working with vocalist Jeff Scott Soto whose vocal character was miles from the Perry signature, the band decided to embrace the "legacy sound." Their journey would lead them to YouTube, and keyboardist Jonathan Cain's daughter would lead him to Frontiers vocalist Jeremey Hunsicker. He phoned Hunsicker, and explained the band's situation. "They think I'm crazy," he explained to Hunsicker, "But the way you perform those songs is inspiring." With the birth of his first child only weeks away, and the demand of a years worth of touring over his head, ultimately Hunsicker stepped away from the situation. But his time with Journey would prove prosperous nonetheless. One of the songs co-written with Journey would be the lead single off of Journey's new Wal Mart record, "Revelation." Neal Schon would reflect on Hunsicker's brief flirtation with stardom in an interview in June 2008. "Jeremey Hunsicker…He was very good… but he was a bit scary because he was almost too much like Perry. He was almost like a duplicate, probably the closest of anyone out there." A ringing endorsement for a tribute singer who was able to find happiness doing what he loves on his own terms.
