MIKE LINDUP (from Polydor press release)
One of the founding members of Level 42, keyboardist Mike Lindup has been making use of the band's 18 month sabbatical by recording his debut solo album "CHANGES".
"CHANGES", to be released by Polydor on 4th June, was written and co-produced by Mike Lindup. Two sides of wel-crafted pop songs from the co-writer of many of Level 42's monster hits are given a polish from a wide array of musicians such as Pino Palladino on bass, guitarist Dominic Miller (World Party/Phil Collins) and drummer Manu Katche (Peter Gabriel/Robbie Robertson)
As well as co-producing the album with Calum Malcolm, who has worked with Blue Nile and Simple Minds amongst others, Mike does the vocal honours and puts to good use his musical training on persussion and keyboards.
A passion for music, encouraged by his parents (his mother has worked as a singer and actress and his father is a highly respected composer and arranger), led Mike to study piano at six years old. At 7 he took up the violin, at 12 the clarinet, and by the time he was 14 he entered Chetham's Schol of Music and added percussion to his list. After 4 years of training Mike went on to study at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama where he eventually met the other members of Level 42.
Ten hectic years later with the hugely successful Level 42 and Mike Lindup has finally had the time and opportunity to record some of the many songs he has written over the years. The resulting album "CHANGES" contains the following tracks:
