Title - Love Revolution
Artist - Love Bubble

“I Live for Love and Music” is a lyric from the stunning third track entitled Harmony, on Love Bubble’s debut record, Love Revolution.

Furthermore, it’s a phrase that articulates the soul of the founding members of Love Bubble.

Three award-winning singers/musicians/songwriters from Asheville, NC serendipitously came together in the spring of 2019 and discovered their shared desire to bring more love into the world through music.

Voices that blended from the first note, it was that inspiring sound that kick-started this collaborative collection of tuneful, delectable, charming, romantic, humorous and uplifting original songs.

Hank’s prowess as a singer, guitarist and songwriter were irresistible to Miss Paula and Miss Peggy, not to mention his ample supply of wit and merriment.

It was love at first sight!

13. I Got You Babe (3:14) [Bonus Track]

This beautifully happy-go-lucky album opens on the Summer sunshine of Love Bubble and the guitar-driven hand-clapper Twice This Summer and backs those up seamlessly with the lazy-hazy, foot-tapping Harmony, the euphonic melodies of Paradise Falls, the quaint and dainty harmonies of I Wanna Be and then we get one of my own personal favorites, the ’70s-imbibed sing-along A Little Bit of Everything.

Up next is the gentle, trumpet-imbued hipsway of Warm & Cozy and the joyfully groovy, finger-snapping storytelling of Moonlight Swim which are in turn followed by the mid-tempo balladry of Beautiful Soul, the album rounding out on the ragtime feel of Guilty Pleasures and the low slung guitar ballad Honeymoon In June, coming to a close on the upbeat, gently rambunctious Love Revolution and then their vivacious rendition of Sonny & Cher’s I Got You Babe.

Love Revolution was recorded at Hank’s house in his tiki lounge the old fashion way - no drum machines, no computers, no auto tune. “Just the three of us playing and singing and having a ball,” says Hank.

“The concept of the album is love, not only in the lyrics but the way the songs were arranged and recorded singing together, not separated by booths and baffles. Any opportunity for musical growth was taken. Paula surprised herself with her flute playing adding a whole new signature sound to the band. What’s next? Peggy on harmonica, and a video hopefully and more songs about things we love.”

Combining their esthetic, work ethic while creating the brilliant vocal arrangements on this album, was a labor of love indeed. Playing to each other’s strengths was the key to defining their overall approach and sound.

Hank’s previously and recently penned songs make up the crux of the record as 9 of the 13 songs are his creations. Two songs were written by Ratusz and one co-written by Hanke and Bones. The only non-original song is the bonus track written by Sonny Bono, re-arranged by Love Bubble.

Paula’s sweet flute, banjulele and ukulele playing, fill holes in lovely and colorful ways, while Hank aptly bears the brunt of the instrumentation throughout the record.

What you’ll hear throughout every personal and positive track, is the unique sensibility the trio embodies; their fervent spirit is evident. From the first track Love Bubble (their theme song) to the last, Love Revolution (their mission) a groovy and nostalgically-new vocal ensemble is born.

In closing, Love Bubble’s new album exhibits the human touch in all it’s warm and inviting splendor.
