DEF LEPPARD’s RICK ALLEN Discusses His Guest Appearance On Wife LAUREN MONROE’s ‘Big Love’ EP (Video)

Mailboat Records and Cherry Bomb Records have just
released “Big Love”, the EP by singer/songwriter Lauren
Monroe
, wife of DEF LEPPARD drummer Rick Allen.
Densely textured and imaginatively layered, legendary producer
Jim Scott and Monroe have given us an anthem for this
moment in time. With consummate backing from the likes of such
heavyweights as keyboardist Benmont Tench and drummer
Steve Ferrone (TOM PETTY & THE HEARTBREAKERS),
seasoned session vet, lead guitarist Waddy Wachtel (Keith
Richards
, Linda Ronstadt, Stevie Nicks) ,
Allen, bassist Bob Glaub (Jackson Browne,
Linda Ronstadt, Bonnie Raitt), drummer Kenny
Aronoff
(John Cougar Mellencamp, John Fogerty)
and others, “Big Love” shines with its own brand of
contagious musical magic. A one-minute video in which Allen
discusses the making of “Big Love” can be seen below.
Monroe stated: “‘Big Love’ is a song I felt I had to
write and record. It’s my anthem and I trust it. It represents my
heart and my soul, and defines this moment in time. Hopeful.
Strong. Healing. “Our world is experiencing a profound change, and
as we look around, reflect, speak out and continue to impact our
country and our global society we endeavor to take care of all of
us. It’s not a new perspective… you just have to look and listen
to find it. “I have written about the potential in all of us. We
are a diverse group, the composition of which represents all that
we have in common. We differ by gender, sexual orientation, by the
color of our skin and by our individual ideology, ethnicity and
spiritual guidance. We are, however, a singular humanity. We truly
are: BIG LOVE.” Monroe has been a practitioner and teacher
of energy healing since 1992. With an MA in dance choreography, a
BA in education, and advanced certification in massage therapy, her
healing arts background includes specialized work with incarcerated
teens, hospice care, and crisis healing. She has studied and
apprenticed with Christian benedictine monks, tribal healers of
Brazil, Mexico, North America and New Zealand. She is the creator
of the Advanced Energy Medicine certification program at the
Boulder College Of Massage Therapy 1999-2002, the co-founder of the
Raven Drum Foundation and creator of Project
Resiliency
where she teaches and facilitates self-care
workshops and empowerment drum circles. A vocalist, songwriter and
musician, Monroe creates a direct and personal experience of
spiritual oneness and healing for audiences and students alike. Her
work is an authentic expression of art and medicine that is created
for healing and personal growth. Photo credit: Carol Oliva
