I am happy to confirm that Tony Maue is officially taking over my performing role as guitarist in The Raven Age. With the band doing so well and moving from strength to strength, I have decided to make managing The Raven Age my full-time role. This will allow me to focus on delivering the most exciting experiences for our fans and help the band to explore new opportunities. When we created The Raven Age, we never imagined that we’d achieve half of what we have so far. Tony’s addition to the line-up is now allowing me to focus my time on growing the band that I love. The band is in the best possible position and we are all excited for what the future holds.
