The Lu Silver String Band
From the deepest land of Cesena, Italy, comes THE LU SILVER STRING BAND, the new project of singer-songwriter Lu Silver, former lead singer of the hard-rock band Small Jackets.
Rock attitude with West Coast guitars, blues and folk. Great sounds for those who like bands like Neil Young, Elliott Murphy, Leon Russell, Lynyrd Skynyrd and J.J. Cale. The various influences also lead to British music, in fact Lu Silver often refers to the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and Terry Reid. Everything naturally turns to unplugged, or semi-unplugged, where the electric guitar sounds slightly distorted, giving way to acoustic guitar sounds wrapped in reverb and delay.
In 2012 Lu Silver recorded his first solo album Voices, Harmony, Silver Strings at Atomic Studio, making the arrangements and playing most of the instruments: memotron strings, drums, guitars and harp. The recordings featured some of the most respected musicians in his area: Marco Pizzolla on bass, Andrew Basile on drums (ex The Shoes and Bluesevil), Enrico Zavalloni (Mondocane f/t Mike Patton and founder of Atomic Studio) on hammond organ, Conny Ochs (Baby Universal, Heavy Kingdom f/t Wino), Alessandro Tedesco (ex OJM and Glincolti) on guitars, Silvio Pasqualini (ex Le Meleagre) on keyboards, bass and backing vocals, Giacomo Pasghin (ex Pater Nembrot) on bass.
In 2016, the debut album by The Lu Silver String Band called The Soul Comes Back To Boogie was released for Go Down Records. It describes the desire to play rock music, remembering its roots, the rhythm of soul, the basics of blues and the movement of boogie.
In late 2019, The Lu Silver String Band's sophomore album Rock'n'Roll Is Here To Stay was released for Go Down Records.
