Worldwide icon of melodic rock Stan Bush is best known for his song “The Touch,” featured in Transformers: The Movie. An anthem for Transformers fans around the world, "The Touch" was released for the hit video game Guitar Hero in 2009. His ubiquitous hit “The Touch” was featured this year on the NBC action-comedy Chuck as well as on the animated FOX show American Dad, and heard in conjunction with the Transformers: War for Cybertron multi-platform video game and related marketing campaign. It was also prominently featured in the motion picture Boogie Nights.
Stan’s critically-acclaimed release In This Life (named “Album of the Year” for 2007 by RockUnited.com) features a new version of “The Touch.” Another track from the album, “Til All Are One (Transformers Theme)” has served as the official theme for BotCon, a global gathering of Transformers fans, and is also featured in the Transformers: War for Cybertron video game.
In 1997, Stan won an Emmy Award for Best Original Song for his track "Til I Was Loved By You." Another Bush original, "Capture the Dream," was featured at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta. His songs are heard in two Jean-Claude Van Damme films: Kickboxer and Bloodsport, both of which spawned numerous sequels. Stan has co-written with many top songwriters like Jonathan Cain (Journey,) Jim Vallance (Bryan Adams, Aerosmith,) and Paul Stanley of KISS. Stan has toured extensively throughout the United States and Europe in his storied career.
Dream the Dream, Stan Bush’s 11th studio album, finds the veteran singer/songwriter on top of his game, delivering the kind of powerful melodies and positively-charged lyrics that have earned him a loyal following that spans the globe. Longtime fans and new listeners alike will be pleased to find Bush’s no-nonsense approach to rock n’ roll and emotive lyrics ring true in this new audio gem, the follow up to his critically acclaimed 2007 smash, In This Life. “We’ve been working on the new album for a year and a half, and I’m very happy with it,” says Bush, “the last album, In This Life, got great reviews and though we had to work really hard, I think we’ve got ourselves another amazing album. Some of the songs have a ‘go for it’ message, and some are about love, life and a search for meaning.”
Set for worldwide release on September 15th, Dream the Dream is already earning high praise and great reviews!
