ď śThe critically acclaimed eponymous debut album by FUSE was released in May 2010. ď śThe duo are virtuoso musicians Linzi Stoppard and Ben Lee who harness their exclusive Swarovski crystal signature Bridge electric violins, seize classic Rock tracks and put them through the FUSE wringer!
ď śThe results are radical, innovative but loving reinterpretations for violin violin. The album features 14 incredible tracks including g 'Fix You' by y Coldplay, p y, Michael Jackson's 'Beat It', 'Glorious' by Andreas Johnson and a stunning blend of the mediaeval 'O Fortuna' from f Carmina Burana and Zeppelin's 'Kashmir'.
All tracks have been reworked and reanimated in the unique Fuse way. way The duo have had to invent new ways to render melodies that were vocal on the original tracks. Fuse aim to prove that the electric violin can be as versatile as the electric guitar “ a valedictory romp through 'I Love Rock N Roll' seems to seal the deal!
As Linzi says, "It's completely fresh, no one thought that what we do was even possible. Everything you hear is violins! The style y that we use when we play p y is more akin to that of a guitar player, with more soul and electricity “ literally! We chose work from artists that are huge stadium acts, and that's where we want t be. to b It is i that th t big bi and d that th t powerful f lget some ear plugs! We specialise in blowing away people's people s preconceptions preconceptions."
ď śFuse are already finding friends in the rock fraternity who appreciate what they do. After raving, "I love what you've done,, how did you y get g that sound?",, Francis Rossi appears on the album version of Quo's 'Down Down', Nick Mason off Pink Floyd offered ff his services as a drummer and Roger Daltrey asked Linzi and Ben to support him!
ď śLinzi and Ben's background is music all the way â€œ though Linzi is also signed to Models 1 and she and Ben have both just become Prince's Trust Ambassadors. ď śWith both having had real success individually y in their careers thus far and worked with an amazing array of worldbeating musical talent, their coming t together th as FUSE portends t d something thi really special.
ď śThe sound that FUSE generate takes serious know know-how how and technical skill and live it is nothing short of incendiary â€œ the violins are g generally y accompanied p by y the sound of jaws dropping! 'Crazy Nights' indeed.
ď śWhat FUSE do can have a truly global appeal; there are no language barriers. barriers Whilst they are very proudly a string band,, listeners can sing g along g to the choruses that we all know. ď śWith the release of "FUSE", the duo will be bringing their unique brand of entertainment to a whole new audience, l t' hope let's h th they are ready! d !
The Hotly-tipped duo debuted their brand new million-pound new, million pound Swarovski Swarovski-encrusted encrusted violins at an exclusive photocall held at Harrods. Linzi Stoppard pp of FUSE said,, œThese violins are incredible, just stunning “ the light explodes off the Swarovski crystals.
