In-between a year packed of touring with Phil Collins, James Taylor, and Bonnie Raitt, accomplished vocalist/composer/actor Arnold McCuller returns with his 9th solo album, Witness.
Witness is Arnold’s 5 song EP recorded in 2017 that covers a range of styles from the percussion driven title track to the blues stomping “Hard Times” to cocktail lounge ballads on “Simple Equation” and “It is What it Is”.
Witness was produced by Arnold’s longtime collaborator Matt Cusson, who also co-wrote two of the songs (“Simple Equation”, “It Is What It Is”) as well as programming, keys, percussion and backing vocals for most of the album.
Lending a hand are Arnold’s bandmates from James Taylor and Phil Collins: Michael Landau (guitar), Jimmy Johnson (bass), and Luis Conte (percussion). Witness also features Andrew Edmonds (drums), Viktor Krauss (bass), Ramon Yslas (percussion), and Jon Gilutin (Rhodes/piano).
