In other news, Schenker has collaborated with singer/songwriter/girlfriend Amy Schugar on an eight-song CD, which is currently being shopped to interested labels. The demonstration CD features Schenker singing lead for the first time on three tracks.

"Amy Schugar and I met at a Eric Johnson concert," Schenker said. "She was singing and checking out a guitar after the show on the side of the stage when I became aware of her. We immediately became interested in each other and hooked up. I started writing a song for her to ad vocals and lyrics and I realized that it was very good. So I continued writing more music and it developed in to a unique chemistry. We went into a recording studio and put together these songs. Now we are offering it for sale for people interested in this demonstration and we hope that [everyone] will find it as refreshing and unique as the people have who we played it to so far."
