STAN BUSH "In This Life" (July 2007 LA Records)
Praised as a world-class rock singer, Stan Bush is best known for his song “The Touch” featured in the Transformers Movie. Stan’s new album includes “The Touch” as a bonus track on his U.S. release, as well as “Til All Are One”, theme song for the Transformers convention (BotCon), where Stan will be a featured performer. With powerful melodies that have made Stan a popular artist around the world, his new album is his best ever!
Producer and guitarist Holger Fath has helped Stan create a masterpiece with “In This Life”. The title song has an almost spiritual message about searching for truth. “Take It All the Way” is about going for it! Other songs on the album are about love and life, and all share a common message of living life full-out! “Southern Rain” is a heartfelt ‘unplugged’ acoustic song about Stan’s early years growing up in Florida, and features a guest appearance by guitarist Rocket Richotte (David Lee Roth, Rick Springfield, Steppenwolf).
The musicians on “In This Life” include drummer Matt Laug (Slash’s Snakepit, Alice Cooper, Richard Marx, Eddie Money, Anastacia), and Lance Morrison on bass guitar (Alanis Morissette, Don Henley, New Radicals, Rod Stewart). Holger Fath’s guitar work, production, arrangements, and keyboard programming all combine to make it a brilliant rock album! Holger was on three Grammy winning albums as guitarist and arranger, and worked with top European bands, and has co-written three top 40 hit songs. Additional keyboards: Dirk Nagel. Tracking and mixing of “In This Life”: Michael Blum, Titan Studios. Michael also worked with The Who, Pink Floyd, Madonna, etc,… Songwriters on the album include Stan, Holger, and Curt Cuomo (Kiss, Eddie Money, Edgar Winter).
