Hollywood, CA (December 21, 2011)—Richie Sambora is recording his next solo album at Ocean Way Recording in Hollywood with Luke Ebbin producing.
This marks the Bon Jovi lead guitarist’s third solo effort, following Stranger in This Town (1991) and Undiscovered Soul, released in 1998 and produced by Don Was.
“Richie and I have worked on and off together for years,” explained Ebbin. “Richie came off the Bon Jovi tour energized and we got together to write a couple of songs. The results were very good, so we kept writing more and decided to go in and record them. The recordings came out great, so Richie decided why not make this a solo record? There are eight songs in the can now, including a co-write with Bernie Taupin. We’ve started round two of sessions and hope to have a full album done by early spring.”
