It has been a couple of long years in the making, but now the wait is all over, and believe us when we say that the wait has been more than worthwhile!
Zink Music and Peter Friestedt presents “LA Project II”, an album that features lead vocal performances by Joseph Williams (Toto), Bill Champlin (Chicago), Randy Goodrum, Lou Pardini (Koinonia), Bill Cantos, Michael Ruff and Stefan Gunnarsson. The latter is the voice behind the bonus track “Always On My Mind”, a song that only is featured on the Zink Music release of the album. And if the just mentioned isn’t enough, mastermind Peter has brought on an impressive list of friends and musicians to play on the album and on here we find Abraham Laboriel, John JR Robinson, Tris Imboden (Chicago), Tommy Denander, Ingemar Åberg and some of the above mentioned singers that also lend their instrumental talents to the album.
When it comes to mixing and mastering such a high-quality that “LA Project II” is, there is no other way than to go to with the best, so mixing was done by Ronny Lahti at Khabang & Location Studios while mastering was done in HDCD quality by well renowned Björn Engelman at Cutting Room in Stockholm - so expect nothing else than the best sound available!
The album consists of ten songs and Peter has amongst others co-written with Bill Champlin, Randy Goodrum, Brian Hobbs, Bill Cantos and Lou Pardini. Regarding the song-writing Peter says: “I have written some of my strongest material ever, I have been surrounded by great co-writers and I am very proud of the way the tracks turned out”. Peter’s extraordinary guitar work shines throughout the record, going from sensitive acoustic guitar and slick rhythm lines to blistering solos.
What makes this record irresistible is the combination of outstanding musical performances, state of the art song-writing and high quality production!
The album is available from the Zink Music website and from all retailers with a good sense for quality….
