February 17th dawned as just an ordinary day for the staff of THIEL Audio. Ordinary, that is, until Lori Lieberman and her producer, Joseph Cali, paid a visit to THIEL's demo. Lieberman, after a request made by THIEL President Kathy Gornik and playing Co-founder Jim Thiel's Taylor acoustic, performed her hit single, "Killing Me Softly With His Song".
In the early seventies, Ms. Lieberman toured extensively throughout the United States and Europe, performing her folk style music, and recording 6 albums. As the industry changed from folk song to disco, she retreated from the spotlight and settled into family life, raising her three children, but all the while returning to the form of expression most natural to her, in words and song.
With producer Joseph Cali's coaxing and encouragement, Lieberman began touring and recording the music she had written and had hidden away over the years as her busy day to day life took center stage. To date, she has recorded 5 additional albums, the latest of which is "Gun Metal Sky".
Ms. Lieberman was in Lexington, Kentucky to perform on the "Woodsongs Old-Time Radio Hour" at the historic Kentucky Theatre the night prior to her visit to THIEL. The THIEL staff, many of whom were longtime Lieberman fans, were delighted to have the opportunity to meet her and here her live.
