Michael Schenker Releases New Acoustic CD
Gipsy Lady, the first album from the Michael Schenker-Gary Barden Acoustic Project, will be available on CD and vinyl on May 19 (just before the U.S. tour begins). Gary Barden's vocals give the cleverly arranged songs just the touch of soul they need for full impact. The long-term Schenker collaborator wrote the lyrics virtually off the top of his head. Also on board is Michael Voss, an experienced producer and second guitarist, who also provides background vocals. Kai Luennemann on percussion completes the team.
With such a distinctive, soft sound from Michael Schenker's guitar, this album distinguishes itself easily. In this way, using a flamenco guitar with castanets in "Dance Lady Gipsy" conjures up a hot-blooded gipsy dancing before your eyes, while the fiddle and flutes in "Fight for Freedom" transport you to beautiful Ireland. The new album from Michael Schenker-Gary Barden Acoustic Project is more than an acoustic album; it demonstrates all Michael Schenker's expertise as a guitarist and songwriter.
The live Michael Schenker experience will come to fruition through the "In the Midst of Beauty — World Tour" headed for the United States.
