Lee Gilbert releases his brand new single... "Soldier On"

By: The Grand Cru
CARDIFF, Wales - April 30, 2022 - PRLog -- Hot on the heels of the release of his latest album "Take Me As I Am" and sell out show at the Parc and Dare Theatre, Rhondda, Welsh performer, singer and now songwriter Lee Gilbert has a brand new single waiting to be embraced by the listeners entitled... "Soldier On".

This emotional, multi-layered, Pop song was co-written between Lee and a new international songwriting collaboration called The Grand Cru! The Grand Cru includes... ex Jesus Christ Superstar lead, Steve Balsamo (who's written for Slash, Meatloaf, Cliff Richard) and ex member of The Story's and Balsamo/Deighton. Also on 'The Cru' is multi-award winning Welsh singer/songwriter Darren Parry, who's a former UK Songwriting Contest winner, Billboard, Unisong, ISSA and USA Song Of The Year award winner (who's co-written with The Korgis, Dan and Laura Curtis and others). In addition, the fourth member of 'The Cru' is Florida based Bonnie Skop, who's family has a long history in music; including her Dad managing Ted Nugent and Bob Seger in their early days! The Grand Cru get their name from the French words... meaning "a wine of the most superior grade". These songwriters are certainly that!

As for Lee... he needs no introduction in the Welsh music scene! He is an acclaimed singer /actor.  His 25 yr career has spanned from Theatre, Radio and TV work which runs alongside his music career. As an actor Lee has performed in Musicals, Drama and Comedies, credits available via Spotlight.

Lee says... "Steve, Darren, Bonnie and I had a few sessions on Zoom and the song was written pretty quick. Darren then put down a basic guitar demo at home and then the track was sent to young, hip, Swansea producer Dai Griffiths (Dai Griff Productions) who produced the finished track". We managed to get up to Shabbey Road Studios (with engineer/producer Al Steele) to record my vocals and the extensive harmonies of the Shabbey Road Gospel Choir (ie, myself, Darren, Steve and Al Steele!!!).  Further female harmonies were provided by the awesome Austrian singer/songwriter/producer... Dear Stella!

This collaboration between three great Welsh singers and songwriter's and their American contingent has them manifest a soulful, contemporary Pop song that see's Lee really showcase his vocal range. Lee says... "Steve, Darren, Bonnie and I have written several songs during lockdown over the last year or so and we wanted this song to have a universal message".  If "Soldier On" was a wine it would be balanced and earthy, with grapes grown in Wales but with a touch of American and Austrian spice for good measure!

"Soldier On" is out everywhere on May 1st 2022
