America co-founder Gerry Beckley
’s first-ever collection of solo hits is an impressive 20-song output featuring 5 previously unreleased tracks such as “(I’m Your) Heart Slave”, “Norman”, “Self Image”, and more. Keeping The Light On - The Best of Gerry Beckley
, now available to pre-order, has given Beckley a chance to immerse himself in different kinds of styles and textures. "It's a challenge because if you're going to sing all the songs you want to try to put variety in there," he explains.
"Obviously one of the great things about America is the combined strength; Dewey (Bunnell) is a fantastic partner and a great writer and singer and we really complement each other. So, when I do something on my own it's not as simple as, 'Now here's a Dewey song, here's a Gerry song...' Fortunately there are a lot of different kinds of 'Gerry songs' that I've been able to put on these records."
