Landmarq have released a new studio album, 'Entertaining Angels' which was produced and mixed by keyboardist Mike Varty.
Vocalist Tracy Hitchings had this to say about the effort, "All of the lyrics I have written for this album, starting with 'Entertaining Angels', were born of my spiritual beliefs. Other lyrics I penned had that same concept, just different stories that got reshaped as I was overcoming Cancer with a very unconventional method as part of the belief in reshaping my life and helping me rid my nemesis. In particular, 'Glowing - Part 1 & 2' is a testament to that and was an amazing and cathartic experience. Writing lyrics and vocal arranging on this album has been an amazing journey and healing process in my life, which has completely changed from the one I once lived."
Says Tracy, "'Entertaining Angels' is rich in backing vocals, the arrangements of which were so important in order to give the warmth and brightness that was not quite as present in our previous work. I so loved arranging to the backdrop of Steve's and Uwe's music, which overall has been given the life-force of Mike Varty's production work. This has created a more accessible and maturer sound without losing the concept flavor. Both the cello work of ELO's Hugh McDowell and the sultry saxophone of Laurent Hunziker has provided the icing on the cake!"
In closing Tracy has this to impart to the band's longtime followers, "I simply say to everyone – crank up the volume, fasten your seat-belts, and enjoy the Landmarq ride of your life. This album oozes atmosphere – hot and sexy!!!"
