Renowned for his flashy six-string work with Toto, Steve Lukather has opened a new chapter with his seventh solo release. Lyrically 'inspired' by his troubled past and struggle to regain full health 'Transition' showcases an intuitive melting pot of musical styles which finds him again at his creative peak. Steve's vocal strength is prominent throughout especially on the swampy blues laden 'Creep Motel' which exposes all of his signature whammy moves. In contrast the epic 'Right The Wrong' is a perfect example of the guitarman's songwriting prowess, a slow heartfelt ballad which harmoniously grows into a euphoric rock anthem, while on standout cut 'Rest Of The World' Lukather recreates the charismatic classic rock of guitar legends such as Stevie Ray Vaughn and Eric Clapton. A pleasure pool of jazz, rock and blues which oozes pure emotion!
