From the deepest land of Cesena, Italy, comes THE LU SILVER STRING BAND, new project of the singer-songwriter Lu Silver (former lead singer of the hard-rock band Small Jackets). Rock attitude with guitars that lead to the West Coast, blues and folk, great for those who loves bands like Neil Young, Elliott Murphy, Leon Russell, Lynyrd Skynyrd and J.J. Cale. The various influences also lead to British music, very often Lu refers to The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and Terry Reid. Everything turns naturally into unplugged, or semi-unplugged, where electric guitar sounds slightly distorted, giving way to the sounds of acoustic guitar wrapped in reverb and delay. In 2012 Lu Silver recorded at the Atomic Studio his 1st solo album Voices, Harmony, Silver Strings, making arrangements and playing most of the instruments: memotron strings, drums, guitars and harp. The recordings saw some of the most appreciated musician from his area: Marco Pizzolla on bass, Andrew Basile on drums (both in The Shoes and now Bluesevil), Enrico Zavalloni (Mondocane f/t Mike Patton and founder of the Atomic Studio) playing the Hammond organ, Conny Ochs (Baby Universal, Heavy Kingdom f/t Wino), Alessandro Tedesco on guitars (former guitarist of the stoner band OJM and Glincolti), Silvio Pasqualini (former guitarist and singer of Le Meleagre) on keyboards, backing vocals and bass, the bass player Giacomo Pasghin (Pater Nembrot). In 2016 the album The Soul Comes Back To Boogie tells the desire to play rock music, remembering its roots, the beat of soul, the foundation of blues and the movement of boogie. At the end of 2019 the album Rock'n'Roll Is Here To Stay is their latest release.
