Urs Wiesendanger, a Swiss-born talented music producer / songwriter, would now bring his 2nd solo CD "Somebody New" to your rich ears. Let me explain his short bio. Urs admits he has been mainly influenced by Quincy Jones, David Foster, Robbie Buchanan and Jeff Lorber. His passion and strength lies in writing / producing "West Coast Main Stream Pop-Music" influenced by R&B and Jazz. Besides that Urs has been working with a lot of the best known Swiss artists at his own Fast Peak Studio located in his hometown Zurich, he keeps on traveling in Europe and to California. He has been working and producing with several artists and musicians like Jeff Lorber, Warren Hill, Robbie Buchanan, Warren Wiebe, and many more. In October 1998, he finished his first solo effort "The Real Me" including the tune "Another Chance For Love" featuring Warren Wiebe. I should add that it was January 2002 when I could get this album due to mainly distribution matters.
This 2nd solo effort "Somebody New" includes versatile 11 sophisticated tunes.
The album is opended by the title track, a gorgeous ballad song featuring the late Warren Wiebe and Jay Graydon adds a spectacular guitar solo. Then, "Your Love Was Special" follows, which is beautifully sung by Michael Sembello. Bill Cantos also dedicates his remarkable voice to this album, singing the love song "The Final Reason Why" which also features Michael Landau on guitar and Robbie Buchanan on Fender Rhodes and piano. Urs himself shows his vocal talent on the track "Morning Light" in addition to his superior keyboard playing all through the album. Jeff Pescetto emotionally sings the magical ballad "I Remember". Last but not least, Warren Wiebe appears again on another excellent love song "Hold Me" backed up by Robbie Buchanan on keyboards and James Harrah playing all the guitars.
