Everyone that has been to this site more than a few times knows I love Adam Lambert. Well, now my beloved Glambert is about to release an authorized album of his pre-American Idol recordings. The guitarist on the album is Phil X. You might know him from Triumph and then later as the guy who played in Bon Jovi while Richie Sambora went to rehab. Here's a little release about the upcoming album called the Paramount Sessions. The disc will be out December 6.
Grammy-nominated singer Adam Lambert (American Idol) and Hollywood award winning singer Steve Cooke powerfully and soulfully interpret ten rock ballads each on this exclusive double deluxe collection "Paramount Sessions" with Madonna and Seal's backing band.
The re-mixed and mastered songs feature new tracks, extended plays and out takes from Adam Lambert and Rocking vocals from Steve Cooke.
On guitar Monte Pittman (Madonna, Adam Lambert) on bass, piano and keyboards Marcus Brown (Seal, Madonna) and drummer Steve Sidelnyk (Seal, Madonna) on lead guitar is Phil X (Bon Jovi) with additional drumming from Brian Frasier-Moore (Madonna).
The album was produced and mixed by Grammy-Winner Bob Cutarella (also produced for Slash, Les Paul and Celine Dion) and 2x Grammy-winning engineer Alfonso Rodenas.
Adam Lambert captured the hearts of Americans during his amazing performances in American Idol, singing songs from Johnny Cash to Queen. Steve Cooke's vocal performances embrace the tones of INXS, Zep and the Stones.
The album is an easy listening epic of twenty songs accompanied by 2 Music Clips "Radio" and "Gravity". "Radio" features Steve Cooke and Adam Lambert's Band, with Steve Ferrone on drums (drummer for Tom Petty).
This show keeps rolling with two nominations for this year's Hollywood Music and Media Awards, with "RADIO" for Best Video and "Gravity" for best song in Adult contemporary
This is the complete and only official pre-Idol recordings from Adam Lambert.
