New Album Update
Bernie and Elton will return to the studio in mid-January to record a collaborative album with the iconic Leon Russell. Russell, who has always been one of Elton’s musical heroes and influences when it comes to piano styling, will be featured on a 50/50 basis - writing and performing his own material for the project, as well as writing with both Bernie and Elton, and performing and singing on the pair's own songs.

A marathon writing session in Los Angeles last November saw the trio pen a vast wealth of material that ranges far and wide and covers many musical genres.

The sessions will be overseen and produced by Henry (T-Bone) Burnett whose work on roots-based records over the last several years have turned this multi-Grammy winning musician and producer into the go-to-guy for unique projects.

We advise all not familiar with Leon or T-Bone to Google and learn more about these extraordinary individuals.

Don’t forget to keep checking for new postings by Bernie on his blog as we’re hoping he’ll be reporting some of his own personal feelings on this exciting new chapter in his storied career.
