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.
A native Londoner, Mitch has used his wide range of talents in various successful productions for many years working with world famous artists as a writer, producer, musician or singer.
To discover the musical universes of Mitch Hiller:
Mitch Hiller performs on many international stages. End of September, an
enthusiastic audience in Sweden have welcomed Mitch Hiller and his guest, Robert Lauri. Other international concerts projects together are being set. More news soon.
The new album features two excellent duets featuring Robert Lauri with Diane Marino on "In My Mind" and "Nothing's How it Used to Be." The American jazz singer Diane Marino joins Robert Lauri to exploit the beautiful melody and lyrics to its fullest effect on both collaborations. There is also another excellent duet with Mitch Hiller: "Nothing's on the Radio." In this song, Robert Lauri and Mitch Hiller impress us with the exceptional colors of their voices.
Apart from Robert's many and varied talents, the album features the exceptional bass playing of Nashville's Frank Marino and the innovative guitar work of Parisian Pierre Chereze. Diane Marino's flawless piano skills are heard on a number of tracks.
Some tracks are characterized by vocal harmonies. For example, in "Try to have a little faith," Swedish talented singers Asa Tahlin, Ann-Sofie Nordh, and Kerstin Karlsson combine with Mitch Hiller on lead vocal by Robert Lauri to reinforce the groove of the song.
Every title takes us through a range of different moods and different styles: country, Southern rock, ballads, and pop-rock... but all with the special "Lauri" trademark of originality, sensitivity and creativity.
The video editing and graphics are by the talented Italian artist, Anna Clara Passarelli. Video and dance have been her passion since childhood. Some of the videos are also produced by Dreaming & Co.
