ED KOWALCZYK, legendary lead singer and songwriter of the multi-Platinum rock band Live, is launching an acoustic tour called I ALONE-ACOUSTIC at the Gala Showroom in Jackpot, NV on Saturday, October 13th.
With over 20 Million albums sold worldwide, Live has become one of the most successful and enduring alternative rock bands of the last twenty years. KOWALCZYK will be performing songs from the entire Live catalog (“I Alone”, “Lightning Crashes”, “Heaven”) and songs from his solo album, Alive, in this intimate and acoustic performance.
KOWALCZYK has built an impressive résumé with his bandmates that includes eight full-length albums that have reached gold and platinum status in 9 countries, and nine Top 10 radio hits such as “Lightning Crashes”, “I Alone”, “Selling The Drama” and “Heaven”.
One of the main elements that have enabled KOWALCZYK and Live to maintain a devoted fan base is the substantial and durable nature of his lyrics, which have often reflected Ed's personal and spiritual concerns. “My approach as a songwriter is to write songs that are not finite and will resonate with listeners for a really long time,” KOWALCZYK asserts. “Twenty years after our first album, Mental Jewelry, I am still able to get something out of songs Live recorded in the early 1990s--and I think that one of the reasons why we’ve had so many fans for so long is that our fans are also continuing to find nuances in the songs.”
KOWALCZYK is excited to be sharing this new look at some of the biggest hits of his career in this dynamic and unique unplugged performance.
