Les Lankhorst NEW CD - "Love and Lullabies"

$13,098

109

"Love and Lullabies" is Les' first new CD in 7 years. Les has been heralded as "The next Sinatra..." and it has been said that he "...caresses lyrics until he makes them purrrr."  "Love and Lullabies" will be recorded exclusively in Kansas using world class local and international musicians. Les' goal for this CD is to bring some of his favorite songs from years past back to life, in new and unexpected ways. You can expect brand new takes of such songs as "You Belong to Me" made famous by Dean Martin and others; "Golden Slumbers" by the Beatles; "What'll I Do" popularized by the great Nat King Cole; Sinatra's "Wee Small Hours of the Morning" and many more.  "Love and Lullabies" will be the perfect album to listen to while studying, settling in to relax after a long days work, or even at nighttime for your kids. It will feature Les' patented silky smooth vocals and marvelous new, yet timeless arrangements of these and more wonderful songs.

Risks and challenges

Some of the possible challenges to completing this project once I receive funding might be availability of the musicians I need to record, delays with finding studio time and my tour schedule.
All of these possible obstacles can be overcome with a little patience and some creative scheduling.
