Robert and Mitch are old friends but it has been a long time since they have collaborated. This album reunites them and showcases Robert's haunting music with Mitch's powerful lyrics.
Every song takes us through a range of different moods and different styles: country, country-rock, ballads, and pop-rock... but all with the special "Lauri" trademark; his sensitivity of a versatile artist able to mix different styles in the same track.
As a European musician, Robert Lauri employs various song textures and genres that coalesce with new age, rock, country, pop, jazz, and blues idioms. The music is powerful, yet quaint and personal. State Of Mind is a new album with fourteen tracks that are unanimously borderless.
“A Million Years” begins with a
light Latin or Spanish flavor that incorporates scintillating acoustic guitar leanings, percussion, and multi-layered vocals. There are a few fiddle strings and an electric guitar solo that awakens the human spirit. The mix of Spanish, rock, jazz, and folk music is represented without fault, as the percussion livens up the song perfectly. There are similarities to the Eagles and William Dunker. Robert Lauri’s new album, State Of Mind, is a work of art that traverses the worlds of blues, rock, folk, jazz, pop, and gospel. The songs are diverse and full of diverse chords and melodies for listeners in all genres. The varied instrumentation and vocals provide a pleasant listening experience. The grittiness of the vocals is characteristic of soulful jazz or blues, which is not a negative here.« according to journalist Matthew Forss (USA).
