DANIEL LANOIS
Here Is What Is
(Red Floor)

 

Armed with a killer title track, also the album’s single, the CD release of Here Is What Is is the best solo CD yet by singer-songwriter, guitarist / producer Daniel Lanois. Famous for his works with Brian Eno, and their collective production of famed rockers U2, Lanois is at his best as a solo artist and with a host of great players he’s put together an amazing new kind of music. For an approximation of Here Is What Is, imagine a U2 style guitar attack featuring a sensitive voice such as Leonard Cohen singing. It’s just that good. A master electric guitarist and steel guitarist with a great ear for production, Lanois layers his melodic rock tracks and occasional instrumental with a multitude of steel guitar-treated ambient sounds and effects that often boggle the senses. For a good example of Lanois working his guitar magic live in the studio with some of the great musicians on the album, check out the live in the studio video of the song “Here Is What Is” also featured on the DVD that accompanies the ‘gold top’ version of this essential rock CD release from 2008. www.daniellanois.com
