Robert Lauri is back with a new album to be released by the end of the summer: State of Mind.
Robert Lauri takes us to a surreal world… the upshot of an international pooling of musical talents, Mitch Hiller and, of course, Robert Lauri. A dozen tracks in all!
This is not the first time that Robert Lauri and Mitch Hiller have joined forces. These two friends of long standing decided to get together yet again to share their creativity and immense talent with us. Their combined talents have produced sheer magic. Very present, almost spellbinding, Robert Lauri’s voice is like a key that opens the door to an authentic and original world created by Mitch Hiller’s lyrics.
The album moreover features sterling collaborative performances: three original duets that are bound to enchant us with the power of talented musicians.
American jazz singer Diane Marino performs two duets with Robert Lauri, singing intense lyrics by Mitch Hiller. Two new powerful tracks bring together Diane Marino and Robert Lauri in a collaborative work between Paris and Nashville. Diane Marino and Robert Lauri sing in perfect harmony. The listener cannot but be overwhelmed by their strong, captivating voices. Mitch Hiller’s hard-hitting text enhances the mystery of their performance even more.
In another original duet, Robert Lauri and Mitch Hiller enchant us with the exceptional color of their voices. The album unveils a brand new world of melodies, entrancing musical arrangements and interpretations that have the power to touch our hearts. Mitch Hiller, a Londoner, has for many years deployed a wide range of talents in various collaborative works and productions that have always been successful.
And that is not all. The album hits a cord also thanks to the flawless communication between Frank Marino on bass, Pierre Chereze on guitar and Diane Marino on piano in the duet with Robert entitled In My Mind.
The twelve tracks provide a range of different moods, mixing country, country-rock, Euro pop, and country pop to cite but a few. The musical accompaniment is dazzling and the passion becomes increasingly contagious with each number we listen to.
The wealth of Robert Lauri’s musical creativity is characteristic of this musician and his openness to the world. He stimulates the association of different musical genres to offer us unique, always harmonious moods.
In sum, it could be said that Robert is a visionary melodist unlike any other. Each of his musical moods bears his “stamp.” Driven by a magical inspiration, Robert Lauri creates and produces without respite at an exponential pace.
Robert Lauri will share the songs in première with friends and fans on his Facebook page and You Tube channel. “Oh No” is a single from the new album now available on the main download stores.
