Best known for "Killing Me Softly," written during her Troubadour days in Los
Angeles when she saw Don McLean in concert, Lori Lieberman has now recorded 14
LPs and CDs for Capitol Records, Pope Music and Drive On Records. She has
gleaned the respect of an industry and a devoted base of fans worldwide.
Bend Like Steel is Lieberman's most personal record to date, and she stated,
"The more I said, the more I felt I had to say." The songs were arranged by
Lieberman and feature her on guitar and piano with guest artists that include
guitarist Lyle Workman (Sting, Beck) and mastered by Gavin Lurssen (Alison
Lieberman's early music history formed in California in the seventies on the
Sunset Strip and the West Coast club scene circuit that included
singer-songwriters such as Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne and the Eagles. As one
of Capitol Records' premier artists, she worked with some of the leading studio
musicians - a young Larry Carlton, members of the L.A. Express, Sneaky Pete and
pianist Joe Sample. She toured the U.S. and Europe with Randy Newman, Billy
Joel, Leonard Cohen, John Sebastian and Rick Nelson, to name a few.
Lieberman was nominated for the Golden Note Award for excellence with A Thousand
Dreams on Pope Music, and two CDs followed - Home Of Whispers and Gone Is The
Girl, which featured her stunning songs, warm vocals and rich orchestrations.
"...this set, though delicate as gossamer, is heart-ripped-open raw. Closely
mic'd to perfection, the anguished interpretation of Simon and Garfunkel's
normally jolly 'Cecilia' will turn your head around." Hi-Fi News Album Of
The Month - Ken Kessler, Hi-Fi News
"Bend Like Steel is some of the best work you've done. It's tied in my
estimation with Home Of Whispers, and you known in what high esteem I hold that
CD. Beautiful, beautiful work. And your voice has never sounded better." -
