After a musical career spanning over three decades (and known latterly for her musical involvement with Steve Hackett), singer / songwriter / guitarist Amanda Lehmann releases her debut solo album, which features several A-list guest players that have also worked past and present alongside the ex-GENESIS guitarist. ‘Innocence And Illusion’ features 9 songs and incorporates a fusion of Progressive-Rock, Rock and Ethereal Fantasy Ballads, with some elements of Jazz-Blues along the way, taking us on a journey through magical childhood worlds and hard-edged realities; emotionally touching us at every turn. Ranging from wistful and ethereal through to warm bluesy tones to rocky harder edged and choir-like pure notes, Amanda’s haunting intertwining lead and multi-layered vocals weave a magical spell throughout ‘Innocence And Illusion’. With engineering and co-production by Nick Magnus, ‘Innocence And Illusion’ comes in a 6-Panel Digi-File Card Sleeve with Booklet.
The full line-up is: Amanda Lehmann (vocals on tracks 1 - 9 / guitars on tracks 1 - 8 / keyboards & piano on tracks 1, 4, 6, 7 & 8), Nick Magnus (keyboards / piano on tracks 1, 2, 4, 6 & 8) and Roger King (keyboards on tracks 3 & 5), with special guests: Steve Hackett (guitars on tracks 6 & 9 / harmonica on track 3), Rob Townsend (alto sax on tracks 3 & 5) and Paul Johnson (backing vocal on track 4). While the artist links quoted here will undoubtedly lead many to purchase this album, if the truth were to be told, this record is strong enough and more than worthy of attention without having any prior knowledge of who is playing on it! Amanda’s superb songwriting and vocal performance skills on ‘Innocence And Illusion’ leads us through a range of styles and genres, delivering top-quality music … Stunning melodies with big hooks, magical atmospheres, infectious chorus’s and meaningful lyrics … add the playing, engineering and co-production skills of none other than Nick Magnus and you get an effect similar to a terrific pairing such as Jon & Vangelis, where together two mega-talents of their own fields collaborate to create that rare thing ... a piece of blissful cross-genre music magic. A heartfelt Steve Hackett quote: ‘Innocence And Illusion’ is set to take the year’s music honours by storm. I believe she is the new British talent with a range of expression rarely heard on a debut album. You’d have to cast your mind back many years to find such a rich seam of ideas mined on one record. There’s an actor’s approach to character exploration from child to woman and back again, where Amanda is the ringmaster of her own fantasies with much to say about the human condition, adding a hint of chanson to the power of rock and a touch of magic realism. We’re discovering a true musical chameleon. It’s been a pleasure to play on one or two tracks along with input from several gifted pals to fully inflate her sails, but the golden ship itself belongs to Amanda alone. With production icons Nick Magnus and Roger King at the helm, who knows where Amanda’s creative travels may take us in the future”.
