Best known as guitar player and singer for TOTO and tireless session man, Steve Lukather released so far three vocal solo albums. “Ever Changing Times” is certainly another musical gem to be added to the list of top quality releases featuring his classic trademarks: exquisite playing, finely crafted productions and a very diverse range of music styles, encompassing heartfelt ballads, straight-ahead rockers and fusion extravaganza.
“It’s been 10 years since my last "vocal" record”, explains Lukather, introducing his new album “And I thought it was time to rock again and sing”. While his songwriting and abilities naturally evolved with time, one can’t deny that “good music is always good music”, especially when the creative process was “done in the traditional way: guys playing in a room together and writing good songs”.
The results of this new studio effort, which lasted several months in between TOTO tours during 2007, are eleven songs which incorporate all aspects Steve Lukather is well known for. “The record rocks harder than Toto, but there is enough melodic stuff on there to please any Toto fan. There is also music that sounds youthful because my co-producer Steve Macmillan and my son were keeping me honest and up to date” says Luke, “It shows a lot of my influences and music I like. If it sounds good, then I keep it”.
