Heaven & Earth are pleased to announce two new members into the fold. The first is seasoned bass player/vocalist Lynn Sorensen from Paul Rodgers/Bad Company. The second is one of Australia’s premier drummers, Jackie Barnes, son of Australian singing legend Jimmy Barnes.
Say’s singer Joe Retta:
“I’m exited to announce and welcome two new members to Heaven & Earth. Lynn and Jackie are right out of the Rock n Roll mold and a perfect fit for this band. Both with a classic and authentic R&R feel that round out our sound like a cement bubble. These two multi instrumentalists are also fine singers too and that’s a “hell yeah” from me.
Lynn Sorensen stated: “As a long time fan of Heaven And Earth it is an honor to have the opportunity to play with them. The Dig album simply blows my mind.”
Jackie Barnes graduated from Berklee with a Bachelor of Music in 2010 and has played on over 50 international releases including 5 DVDs and has worked with artists such as Cold Chisel, Keith Urban, Joe Bonamassa, Journey, Steve Morse, Bob Daisley, The Ten Tenors, Diesel, Andrew Roachford, Mahalia Barnes, EJ Barnes, Evil J + Saint Cecilia, The Madden Brothers, Mica Paris, Glenn Hughes, Reece Mastin, Moussa Diakité and Steve Van Zandt.
““I am extremely excited to be the new drummer for Heaven and Earth. As soon as I heard the music I knew this was a
project I wanted to be a part of, and I am excited to work with the rest of the guys to make this band even better. I also look forward to performing in front of new audiences and meeting new fans across the globe.”
The band enter rehearsals next month to prepare for their European tour starting at the Birmingham O2 Academy in the U.K. on June 26th
