After a musical career spanning over three decades (and known latterly for her musical involvement with Steve Hackett), singer/songwriter/guitarist Amanda Lehmann will release her debut solo album “Innocence and Illusion.” The album, which features 9 songs, sees a fusion of Prog, Rock, Ballads, and elements of Jazz-Blues. “Innocence and Illusion” takes us on a journey through magical childhood worlds and hard-edged realities; emotionally touching us at every turn.
With the lyrics and music composed by Amanda Lehmann, she has welcomed the keyboard and engineering skills of Nick Magnus for seven of the songs, with Roger King on two tracks, and also featuring guest appearances by Rob Townsend on sax, and Steve Hackett on lead and acoustic guitars and harmonica.
Amanda comments: “I am incredibly proud of this album. There is a wide variety of music, all weaving around the central thread of life’s journey; the twists and turns and all the stops along the way, the innocence, the illusions, the hopes and dreams, reflecting on what is, what was, what could be. These songs have been bursting to be heard, and I hope that they speak to everyone who listens to them.”
