On this new EP Rising Sun, Grammy and Emmy Winning Producer, Songwriter and World Class Drummer, Narada Michael Walden revisits four of his early fusion hits with his powerful new band made up of some of the Bay Area’s finest musicians - Frank Martin (Keyboards) Angeline Saris (Bass), Matthew Charles Heulitt (Guitar), and Nikita Germaine (Vocals). The band brings powerful new energy to these songs, including “Cosmic Strut” which Narada wrote and first recorded with the acclaime Mahavishnu Orchestra and “Sofie” which he originally wrote and produced for Jeff Beck’s “Wired” album.

The now Legendary San Francisco based band The Warriors, teamed guitarist Joaquin Leivano with Mahavishnu Orchestra drummer and Grammy winning producer Narada Michael Walden, bassist Keith Jones (later replaced by Randy Jackson), and the then unknown keyboardist and now Grammy winning producer, Walter Afanasieff. Mahavishnu Orchestra violinists Jerry Goodman and later Steve Kindler were also part-time members. Stellar performances built a West Coast cult following that filled concert halls. From 1981 to 1984 this band was the hottest Band in the West. Their first gig was at the Keystone Berkeley opening for Group 87 (and they stole the show!). The Warriors’ last gig was at the NAMM Convention in Anaheim in January of '84. This live never before released recording from the Keystone in Palo Alto captures the energy and genius that these phenominal players shared on stage.

Love Lullabies was composed, arranged and recorded by Three Time Grammy winner, Emmy winning producer, songwriter and musician, Narada Michael Walden. The album is a delight of the heart that was inspired by the birth of Walden's first child, Kelly Estelle Zuzu Walden, on November 22, 2013. These 19 soothing instrumentals border on classical with a touch of pop and R&B. These songs are like a fresh breeze on a warm summer day providing a pleasant, calming musical atmosphere for both parent and child.

Intelligent yet simple music, created by a master musician, perfect for newborns, toddlers, parents, grandparents, youngsters and oldsters alike.
