“Everyone knows that Paul Rodgers is one of the greatest singers in the world. What they are only just waking up to is that there may never be another like him.”
– Mick Wall Classic Rock Magazine
Founding member of Free, Bad Company and The Firm. Grammy-nominated solo artist Paul Rodgers is a musical innovator who has successfully reinvented himself over the course of a five-decade career. A multifaceted creative force — a powerhouse vocalist, hit songwriter and peerless showman – he’s sold over 90 million records, and helped redefine rock ‘n’ roll in the process. Rodgers’ latest effort is a passion project that explores the formative, life-altering songs of his youth. Cut in Memphis, The Royal Sessions is throwback affair: an old-school, analogue, live on the floor recording that finds Rodgers digging into a set of deep Southern soul and R&B tunes from the ‘60s and ‘70s. Like his forays into the blues of Muddy Waters, Rodgers proves a peerless interpreter, bringing new light and shade to these classic sides, and adding yet another essential entry into his catalog.
