Biography

ED KOWALCZYK, legendary lead singer and songwriter of the multi-Platinum rock band Live, is launching the acoustic tour titled, I ALONE-ACOUSTIC, a nod to one of one of Kowalczyk’s most famous lyrics.

With over 20 Million albums sold worldwide, Kowalczyk led Live to become one of the most successful and enduring alternative rock bands of the last twenty years. He will be performing songs from the entire Live catalog (“I Alone”, “Lightning Crashes”, “Heaven”) and songs from his solo album, Alive, in this intimate and acoustic performance.

KOWALCZYK has built an impressive résumé that includes eight full-length albums with his Live bandmates that have reached gold and platinum status in 9 countries, and nine Top 10 radio hits such as “Lightning Crashes”, “I Alone”, “Selling The Drama” and “Heaven”, and his first solo album in 2012, Alive, which spawned the hit single “Grace”.

One of the main elements that have enabled KOWALCZYK and Live to maintain a devoted fan base is the substantial and durable nature of his lyrics, which have often reflected Ed's personal and spiritual concerns. “My approach as a songwriter is to write songs that are not finite and will resonate with listeners for a really long time,” KOWALCZYK asserts. “Twenty years after our first album, Mental Jewelry, I am still able to get something out of songs we recorded in the early 1990s--and I think that one of the reasons why we’ve had so many fans for so long is that the fans are also continuing to find nuances in the songs.”

KOWALCZYK is excited to be sharing this new look at some of the biggest hits of his career in this dynamic and unique unplugged performance.
