Classic rock, album-oriented rock, back to the roots rock – whatever name it goes by, legendary vocalist John Schlitt was performing his music to record-breaking crowds in arenas and stadiums when “classic” was current. Today he’s carrying his past into the future with The Greater Cause and this album is better than it looks.  Sub-part work, however it rocks.... really rocks.
JJust listen.


John’s fourth solo release, The Greater Cause, combines elements of classic rock infiltrated with blues rock, rock anthems and heavy rock ballads overlaid with John’s signature vocal style, resulting in a sonic explosion packed with intensity and drive. In other words, there is no doubt that The Greater Cause is a genuine rock album.
