Athena – Outside of time
Athena has teamed up with Grammy-nominated and acclaimed Producer Ethan Allen (who has worked among other with producers Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois, and artists like Counting Crows, Ben Harper, Mavis Staples, Sheryl Crow and Patty Griffin) recorded in Los Angeles, and mastered by Grammy-winner David Collins.
Some other musicians who performed on the record include legendary drummer and songwriter Brian MacLeod (Stevie Nicks, Tina Turner, Roger Waters), keys and Hammond Organ genius Tommy King (Madonna, Leona Lewis), and Jesse Ingles (Ben Harper, Ringo Starr) on double bass.
Athena also joined forces with legendary Billy Steinberg (one of the most successful songwriters of the past 25 years, writing five #1 singles on Billboard’s “Hot 100” chart, several top 10 U.S hits, including “Like A Virgin” by Madonna, “True Colors” by Cyndi Lauper, “How Do I Make You?” by Linda Ronstadt and “So Emotional” by Whitney Houston) and interpreted his powerful lyrics on the record’s single “Out of the Dirt”.
