Richie Fontana, best known by KISS fans for playing drums on Paul Stanley's solo KISS album, has issued his first solo album titled "Steady On The Steel". An independent release on his own Yankee Music label, this songwriter's showcase was produced, arranged, and written by Richie, and contains 14 songs that fall into the category of Power Pop.

For many years, Richie Fontana was a close member of the KISS family. As the drummer for the band Piper with Billy Squier (A&M Records); the group performed as the opening act for KISS on their "Love Gun" tour in 1978. Later, Richie became a member of The Skatt Bros. (Casablanca Records), the band founded by Sean Delaney, producer of the second Piper album as well as the Gene Simmons
solo KISS album and others. Both of these bands were handled by Aucoin Management, administrators of the KISS empire at that time.
Richie also appears on the 'KISS Box Set', which contains "Tonight You Belong To Me" from Paul Stanley/KISS (Richie Fontana - drums). 
(Piper w/Billy Squier, Bill Aucoin and Sean Delaney)

During the 80's, Richie toured with Laura Branigan at the peak of her career, and worked with various artists including Dr. John and John Pousette-Dart. Richie also worked as a session musician for a period of time in NYC.

Being a songwriter and having the ability to produce, arrange, and play
different instruments, has subsequently led to the above mentioned release: "Steady On The Steel" by Richie Fontana; see The website has biographical and retrospective sections with plenty of career photographs and text, as well as a discography and MP3 samples of the album.

REVIEW: by Ken Sharp (author of the newly released book: "KISS, Behind The Mask: The Official Authorized Biography")

<<<Appeared in The Rock Report, published in the national music trade
publication, Friday Morning Quarterback. Distributed weekly to over 1000 radio stations, The Rock Report features the latest breaking music news and reviews.>>>

A former member of Seventies hard pop troupe, Piper (a band which included Billy Squier), Richie Fontana issues his first solo CD, Steady On The Steel (Yankee Music). Since his tenure with Piper, Fontana, a respected session drummer, has played with the likes of Paul Stanley of KISS.

Through the course of his apprenticeship, one listen to Steady On The Steel confirms that Fontana learned his craft well. His new release works its undeniable charm via a solid collection of deliciously melodic heavy pop numbers, displaying Fontana's muscular, full-bodied voice and an innate ear for a killer hook. Produced and arranged by Fontana, the artist is a literal one-man band on the release, effortlessly playing all guitars, bass, keyboards and drums, and most crucially, making it sound like a 'band.' Chock-full of radio friendly cuts, winners include "You Were Right On Time," the irresistible power pop blast of CD opener, "Everytime I Dream," the edgy "Neverland," "Somebody's Lover," and the Beatlesque "Baggage & Blues," all choice nuggets on this strong debut offering.
