RANDY BACHMAN New Project 'Bachman’s Heavy Blues' Drops April 15

Artist: 
 
ROCK LEGEND RANDY BACHMAN ANNOUNCES NEW PROJECT:
BACHMAN’S HEAVY BLUES DROPS APRIL 15, 2015

Guest soloists include: Neil Young, Joe Bonamassa, Robert Randolph and Peter Frampton

The man known as the “architect of Canadian rock n’ roll” is forging ahead into 2015 with a brand new project billed simply as BACHMAN. Joined by a virtuoso rhythm section with Anna Ruddick on bass and Dale Anne Brendan on drums, the trio’s debut effort entitled Heavy Blues will be available worldwide on April 15, 2015 through Linus Entertainment.

Heavy Blues draws from the unlikely trio’s love of classic 60s blues rock and emerges with a blistering sound, a fierce and fearless collection of BACHMAN originals. Featuring an enviable list of Randy Bachman’s contemporaries including Neil Young, Joe Bonamassa, Robert Randolph and the late Jeff Healey, each musician contributes their signature-style guitar solos blending classic blues and rock with a modern undertone.

Produced by internationally-acclaimed producer Kevin Shirley (Iron Maiden, Rush, Led Zeppelin), Heavy Blues marks the rare occasion that Randy Bachman has relinquished the producer reins. “'I’ve known Kevin for many years and watched his producer credits grow to include many rock legends,” explains Randy Bachman. “I knew that he could push me past my limit, pull me onto new paths and direct me down new roads. The collaboration, paired with Dale Anne and Anna’s musical ferocity, has made this entire project an amazing experience for me.”

A legendary figure in the rock n’ roll world, Randy Bachman has earned over 120 gold and platinum album/singles awards around the world for performing and producing. As the co-founder and principal songwriter for The Guess Who and Bachman-Turner Overdrive, Randy Bachman’s monstrous hits, including “American Woman,” “Looking Out for #1,” “Let It Ride,” Taking Care of Business,” and “No Sugar Time,” have garnered him the coveted #1 spot on radio playlists in over 20 countries and he has amassed over 40 million records sold.

Randy Bachman has been awarded Order of Canada, ASCAP’s Global Impact honour, Musicians Hall of Fame in Nashville, and received two separate inductions into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame.

ROCK LEGEND RANDY BACHMAN LOOKS BACK ON ICONIC CAREER WITH "EVERY SONG TELLS A STORY" LIVE CD/DVD SET

There are few musicians who have penned as many anthemic rock tunes as Randy Bachman. Often referred to as the “architect of Canadian rock n’ roll, Bachman’s catalogue of hits include "American Woman," "These Eyes," "No Time," "You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet," "Takin' Care of Business," and "Roll On Down the Highway." And now, Bachman himself offers thrilling in-concert renditions and earnest tales behind the creation of all of these classics (and many more), on 'Every Song Tells A Story,' a fourteen-track CD/DVD set that will be released on Tuesday, August 19, 2014 via the Independent Label Services Group (ILS).

A video teaser of the DVD can be viewed via this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6rqJ8pG0Ir0&feature=youtu.be

Recorded in April 2013, at Pantages Playhouse Theatre in Winnipeg, 'Every Song Tells A Story' features Bachman in a rare and intimate setting, weaving together the transcendent and iconic hits of the Guess Who and Bachman-Turner Overdrive with the often-humorous stories that originally brought the songs to life.  Inspired by his award-winning radio program 'Vinyl Tap,' Bachman takes his master storytelling and voluminous musical knowledge on the road and leads fans on a guided journey that encapsulates the last 30 years of popular music presented by one of the greatest rock legends of our time.
