Steve Lukather Releases “I Found The Sun Again” with Jorgen Carlsson and John Pierce
Toto guitarist and session ace Steve Lukather has just released a new solo album called I Found The Sun Again. Co-produced and engineered by Ken Freeman, the album brings classic rock sensibilities with a modern sound.
“I wanted to make as honest a record as I could in 2020 with 1970s inspiration, and recording values, and techniques with a modern sound. Ken did that,” Lukather writes. “Never had so much fun recording in my life. Painless, fun and easy — and it just flowed.”
The guitarist recruited a killer cast of musicians to realize the music, which was all recorded without live without a click track or overdub fixes. Musicians on the record include drummer Gregg Bissonette, keyboardist Jeff Babko, vocalist Joseph Williams, David Paich, and even Ringo Starr. The bass is handled by Jorgen Carlsson of Gov’t Mule fame as well as John Pierce, who played on Toto’s last tour.
Lukather began the album process by picking three covers – Traffic’s “Low Spark of High Heeled Boys,” Joe Walsh’s “Welcome To The Club,” and Robin Trower’s “Bridge of Sighs” – then writing five originals.
