In this stunning collection - London Calling:…A Toast To Julie London, listeners will discover a side of singer Lyn Stanley that they haven’t heard before. The 17 tunes on this recording explore phases of romance from first glance in ‘Blue Moon’ to a missed chance in Cry Me a River.’ Most of the wide-ranging material presented here was originally recorded by singer/actress Julie London, along with a couple of offerings that Stanley feels would have been perfect for the sultry songstress, such as “It’s Impossible,” and “I Heard It Through the Grapevine.”

With her distinctive sound and approach, Lyn Stanley brings to mind a method actor, mining the stories and feelings in each tune and getting to the heart of the lyrics. Striving for sensitivity, Stanley stays true to these stories and portrays experiences of people engaged in the dance of romance.

London Calling marks a big step forward in Lyn Stanley’s evolution as a recording artist. Just five years after her debut album in 2013 - Lost in Romance, this recording provides a unique vision of Julie London with a self-curated set list emanating from Lyn Stanley’s clear idea of how each tune should sound, holding true to the composers’ ideas, and integrating her own.

Working with many of LA’s best session players, and without any written arrangements, the intimate collaboration is nothing short of remarkable. Stanley said; “It was a thrill to hear something that you’ve brought to life come all so easily.” The stellar lineup of musicians include guitarist John Chiodini, pianists Mike Garson and Christian Jacob, bassists Chuck Berghofer and Michael Valerio, percussionists Luis Conte, Brad Dutz, and Aaron Serfaty, and drummer Paul Kreibich.

Thanks to engineering by Steve Genewick, Rouble Kalpoor, and Spencer Garcia; mixing by Allen Sides, and mastering by Bernie Grundman, the best comes through bright, clear, and magnificently.
