File under: Richie channels a chunk of Brooce and a wedge of Coldplay and… actually, it ain’t half bad
In a departure from his previous major label releases – Undiscovered Soul (1998) and Stranger In This Town (1991) – Sambora has returned to his music roots with Aftermath Of The Lowdown, creating what is claimed to be “a highly personal album that is both raw and powerful”.
Lyrically, Sambora tackles such subjects as divorce, substance abuse, single parenthood, independence and self-reliance.
“A lot has happened in my life over the last 10 years, personal stuff that’s cathartic for me to get out,” he says. “Really things that could happen to anybody, but I just happened to be in a band with the biggest concert tour in the world, and in the glare of the public eye.”
The first single, Every Road Leads Home To You, is available as a free download right now via www.richiesambora.com (email sign-up required).
