The latest album release by Barbara Lusch (“Rock Me Sweet”) has been described as “a surprising and magnetic reinterpretation of some of the best loved rock anthems of the 1980s”. “Rock Me Sweet” was recorded at the legendary Capital Studios Studio and features Lusch reinterpreting and rearranging well-known releases of 80’s male rock icons such as Bruce Springsteen, Bon Jovi and Bono on this project. The sessions feature an all-star cast, including Earl Rose, who arranged the music and conducted the orchestra, multiple Grammy Award winner Al Schmitt, pianist Michael Lang, bassist Hassan Jiffry, guitarist Larry Koonse, and drummer Harvey Mason. Says Barbara: “I wanted to do these songs my way, and bring out the vulnerability and emotional depth of the lyrics”. Enjoy the full interview with Barbara Lusch below.
