Grammy Award Winners, singer Steve Tyrell and composer Mike Stoller are sending a "Musical Valentine" to the City of Charlotte, NC, which is hosting the Democratic Convention. The legendary composer Mike Stoller, of the renowned songwriting team of Leiber & Stoller has penned a new song called "Charlotte" which has been recorded by Steve Tyrell. The new song can be heard, set to a video montage of the city of Charlotte, NC, by visiting http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q0CyDS-3c6w. For a free MP3 download of the song during the convention and a Bonus download of the video in high definition, please visit the Home Page of the website, www.leiberstoller.com.
Mike Stoller said: "My new song, 'Charlotte,' celebrates the city of Charlotte, NC, much like the song 'Kansas City' – which my late songwriting partner, Jerry Leiber, and I wrote back in 1952 – celebrates the city of Kansas City, MO. This is the first song for which I have written both the music and Lyrics." Jerry Leiber passed away in August 2011.
Over the course of their 61-year partnership, Leiber & Stoller created enduring classics in a variety of genres including rhythm & blues, pop, country, jazz, cabaret, and-perhaps most notably-rock & roll. To learn more, please visit the website, www.leiberstoller.com.
Steve Tyrell said: "I've admired Mike Stoller all my days in the music business. The recordings he and Jerry Leiber made with Ben E. King and The Drifters changed my life. Working on Mike's first solo song, the beautiful 'Charlotte,' is the greatest honor."
