KISS frontman Paul Stanley guested on Canada Now With Jeff Sammut (SiriusXM) to discuss his new project, Soul Station. Check out the interview below.
Stanley: "I'm not trying to re-invent myself any more than I was trying to re-invent myself when I did Phantom Of The Opera. I am who I am, and what you may not know about me is based on limitations. There are a lot of things you don't know about people, and when you tell somebody to say in their lane that's your perception of their lane. I have always been somebody who wants to pursue things that are interesting to me. To work within the confinement or boundaries somebody else has for me is ridiculous. Hopefully when I do something you get to know me better, and I get to know me better."
Now And Then is the first-ever full-length album from Soul Station: A band gathering some of today’s leading musicians to pay tribute to the greatest artists and songs from the R&B and soul catalog to keep this vital music current. While a surprise to many, Stanley’s early pivotal roots in this music has quietly turned this passion into a celebrated touring and recording band. Stanley’s 15-piece ensemble group has toured the U.S. and Japan, but it wasn’t until recently that they were able to get in the studio together and record Now And Then.
Stanley’s legendary band members include: Rafael “Hoffa” Moreira (guitar & backing vocals), Sean Hurley (bass), Alex Alessandroni (Musical Director, keyboards), Ely Rise (keyboards), Eric Singer (drums & backing vocals), RayYslas (percussion), Gavyn Rhone (backing vocals), Crystal Starr (backing vocals) and Laurhan Beato (backing vocals) and Jon Pappenbrook (lead trumpet).
The band is augmented by three string players and two horn players of the same stature enabling Soul Station’s wall of sound to be firmly rooted in the past while staking claim to both the present and future.
