ABOUT KEVIN BORICH'S DUETS ALBUM

Kevin Borich of The La De Das released DUETS album in 2023 and is touring Australia in 2024 with The Kevin Borich Express.

After the success of my last album ‘Totem’ in 2014, Stephen Green convinced me it was high time to celebrate what has been a long career. And so, our plan was hatched. 

In 2022, I recorded a greatest hits album with my producer Nick O’Donnell, aptly titled ‘Legacy’. ‘Legacy’ held the number one position on the AMRAP radio charts for 3 months. Now in 2023, we’re proud to release ‘Duets’, a celebration of a lifetime of music with friends!

I’ve shared stages, hung out, misbehaved and now recorded with some of the greatest musicians of all time. I’m so extremely grateful to each of these amazing artists and friends from around the world for their contributions and precious time spent making the record.

‘Duets’ features  Joe Walsh (The Eagles and The James Gang), Leo Sayer, Ian Moss (Cold Chisel), Tim Rogers (You Am I), Russell Morris, Suze DeMarchi (Baby Animals), Ella Hooper (Killing Heidi), Angry Anderson (Rose Tattoo), Joe Camilleri (Black Sorrows), Ross Wilson (Daddy Cool/Mondo Rock), Angela Fabian and John Swan (Swanee/Party Boys).

Capturing not only their amazing voices, the tracks see Joe Walsh and Ian Moss star with their guitars, Joe Camilleri sing with his sax and Ross Wilson charm with his harp. 

There were also the friends we so hoped we could have included on the record, Renee Geyer and Doug Parkinson, who will be sadly missed. ‘Duets’ has been a real labour of love. Recorded over the last several years, we’ve encountered many obstacles and challenges, and hundreds of late nights—though we revel in the vampire hours. Primarily recorded in my home studio as well as hotel suites, lounge rooms, theatre stages, backstage green rooms...you name it we did it! We wrestled, we cajoled, and we made a cracking album we are so extremely proud of.

Looking back over making the record, the thing that stands out most for me is that when we originally tracked each song with my vocals alone, they sounded like “Kevin Borich songs”. And now, with each guest’s wonderfully strong artistic identity and unique voice, they’ve effortlessly transformed each song into THEIR song. This is the reason why each of these artists have had such amazing careers: their unique, undeniable, completely recognisable voices and personalities. I admire them all.

I would also like to thank my amazing band members Jon Carson (drums) and Chris Gilbert (Bass) for their wonderful support, talent and friendship. 

I hope you enjoy listening to ‘Duets’ as much as we enjoyed making it
