about

By far two of the most powerful and creative voices today have come together to bring you two duets you will not want to miss out on. DILANA has teamed up with Johnny Rosssa (vocalist) and Chris Van Duyn (guitarist) from rock powerhouse ‘Thief in the Night’ with two very different songs. One a Holiday/Christmas classic, ‘Baby, It’s Cold Outside’ and the other a powerful ballad filled with emotion titled ‘In Loving Memory.’
For a limited time, they are releasing a Limited Edition CD that includes these two unique arrangements combined with material from each of their own catalogues.

The CD opens with ‘Baby, It’s Cold Outside’ done uniquely in a blues feel with a twist featuring the typical roles reversed. Since it first released in 1949 the typical arrangement has the male pursuing the female in the duet. With a twist, the very talented Dilana puts on her most sexy, sultry voice as the seducer (typically performed by the male) along with the blues-rock vocals of Johnny Rossa being seduced (typically performed by the woman) all set against a blues feel arranged by guitarist Chris Van Duyn. This fun arrangement also includes Johnny's blues harmonica work; a thumping upright acoustic bass (Bryant Simpson) and steady drums (Eddie Gonzales) in a new arrangement never before done.

In the second song, Dilana then brings a new arrangement you won't find ANYWHERE ELSE of her beautiful song ‘Silver Ashes.’ Different than the original version that can be heard on her recent release of ‘Beautiful Monster,’ with Dilana’s beautiful voice and the acoustic instruments, this arrangement has great additions that include percussion beginning the song and continue throughout that will set a mood which takes you back to Dilana’s home of South Africa as she pays a tribute beautifully to her mother’s memory.

‘In Loving Memory’ enters in next. This (mostly) acoustic cover features Dilana & Johnny Rossa's powerful vocals set against Chris’ guitar work reminiscent of Jimmy Page's acoustic work in Led Zeppelin. The song has deep personal meaning beautifully written by Mark Tremonti (Alter Bridge/Creed) as a tribute to his mother anyone who has lost someone dear to them. Johnny brings a depth of feeling that is very strong with total conviction to the lyrics and Dilana adds so much dimension and emotion that the combination creates a powerful impact throughout the song.

The final track to round out the Limited Edition CD is ‘Thief in the Night’s own ‘No One Else,’ from their ‘Under the Influence’ album. A rock-power ballad that features Johnny Rossa’s incredibly powerful voice singing a catchy love song penned by Chris Van Duyn (for his wife) and backed by this power-rock trio allowing Van Duyn’s ripping electric guitar riffs and a blues drenched guitar solo to shine against a supurb rhythm section of drums and bass as they combine a sound reminiscent of Soundgarden meets The Black Crowes & Led Zeppelin which works uniquely well.

You won’t want to miss out on this great set of songs fully intended for the fans to appreciate as it brings out the best of both artist’s creativity and passion for music.
