Rock history finds a harmonious friendship on Face To Face, an exhilarating creative collaboration that unites formidable talents from two different generations - KT Tunstall and Suzi Quatro.
An album of original duets, penned by both KT Tunstall and Suzi Quatro, Face To Face delves into themes of love, loss, fear, and triumph, resonating deeply with their shared experiences as trailblazing women in the world of rock and roll. Guided by Suzi's son, LR Tuckey, who serves as the producer, the album is a testament to the resonant bond between these two kindred spirits. Quatro expresses her early admiration for Tunstall: "I was a fan of KT from the first hit - liked her voice, her songwriting and her musicianship. We are indeed cut from the same cloth which is where our artistry met and flourished. A match made in heaven." Tunstall echoes this sentiment, describing the collaboration as a "beautiful flow state of friendship and creation."
"Shine A Light" and "Truth Is My Weapon" stand as sterling examples of the magnetic synergy forged by Suzi and KT as they embark on this musical journey together, recording side by side in England. The album's lead single, "Shine A Light," accompanied by a visually captivating music video, embodies a powerful message of self-love and resilience. Delving deeper, it also encapsulates the liberation from those who seek to hold you back. Tunstall elucidates, "Suzi and I shared our own stories of experiencing this, and how we’ve both learned to only let those people in who want to see good things happen for you." Quatro adds, "We wrote this song about recognizing and allowing that 'special' light inside of us to shine. And, as the lyric says…'shine a light on me, or let me be.' Amen."
Face To Face epitomizes the extraordinary fusion of music and shared narratives, solidifying the bond between these two trailblazing women who have both shaped the rock landscape in their own distinct ways. Recording within the intimate confines of Suzi's home, the record unfolds in a natural, candid manner, capturing the essence of camaraderie and artistic kinship.
