Nonesuch Records proudly releases k.d. lang and the Siss Boom Bang’s Sing it Loud. Produced by lang and Joe Pisapia, it is the award-winning singer-songwriter's first record made entirely with a band of her own since the pair of albums with the Reclines that launched her groundbreaking career over 20 years ago.
This collection of songs reflects the organic, collaborative nature of the sessions, which took place at Pisapia's Middletree Studios in Nashville. Many of the songs were recorded live in the studio and that energy is palpable.
The lead single "I Confess" is one of three songs lang penned with keyboardist Daniel Clarke and Joshua Grange, who plays baritone guitar and dobro. In addition to the original material, Sing it Loud includes a striking version of Talking Heads' "Heaven."
Pisapia, who plays numerous instruments and serves as the band's musical director, contributed the title track and co-wrote five songs with lang. Bassist Lex Price (Mindy Smith, Peter Bradley Adams) and drummer/percussionist Fred Eltringham (The Wallflowers) complete the lineup. From the Label

This CD is very easy listening. K.D. Lang has such a beautiful yet powerful voice. Her phrasing and the emotions she conveys are incredible. Eight of the songs were written by K.D. in collaboration with various Siss Boom Bang band members. My personal favorites are I Confess and The Water's Edge. This is a CD you will play over and over again.
This album is fresh and new, yet it is pure k.d. Lang. The songs are varied and showcase her unique voice well.
