ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Eclectic" hardly says it but, if you like Orleans, the Beatles, James Taylor, CSN, etc. ... if you like well-crafted, hook-laden, melody/harmony driven songs with intelligent, even poignant lyrics ... if you like great playing, singing and production ...you're gonna like this album.

Best known as a founding member of the band "Orleans" (Still the One, Dance With Me, Love Takes Time, etc), this collection of Lance's represents the unheard side of the usually "quiet one" of the group, taking you on a journey through his Pop/Rock, Americana, R&B and even Country influences.

His own influence is often difficult to discern and the "unsung hero" of his team efforts within and without the Orleans framework, but here he is cut loose as lead and background singer, bassist, guitarist and producer to paint a clear and unencumbered picture of his many strengths. Gathering up the best of his songwriting dating back as far as 1990 (but still standing the test of time), he has created a "legacy piece" of otherwise unknown works. In fact, drummer Charlie Morgan (Elton John, Paul McCartney, Orleans ... and just about everyone else) has called it his "Masterpiece"!

In addition to Charlie, Lance called upon some of his world-class musician friends to aid and abet the project. Among those are: John Jorgenson, guitars and mandolin (Desert Rose Band, Elton John, etc) - Catherine Marx, keyboards (Reba McIntyre, Brooks & Dunn, etc) - Buck Reid, steel guitar (Lyle Lovett's Big Band) and several more. There are even contributions from Orleans co-founders John Hall and the late, great Larry Hoppen (Lance's older brother and the "radio voice" of Orleans).

A dozen co-writers add to the soup but, in every case, Lance's unique stamp has left its flavor on each song. It's that stamp that ties it all together as he takes you on a 15-track, 1-hour trip through a variety of genres. And when you get to the end, you're gonna want to go back to the beginning and start all over again ... and again!
