West Coast singers teaming up…
Producer Joey Carbone had an idea, he thought it could be funny to bring some of the best male west coast music singers together an make a album.
The project was realised the same summer, so in 1997 four incredible vocalists, Bill Champlin, Jason Scheff from Chicago, Bobby Kimball and Joseph Williams from Toto.
The first album is a capella cover version of classic songs from: Mamas & Papas, Eagles, Steely Dan, James Taylor, Doobie Brothers, Boz Scaggs, America etc.
In the summer of 1998, West Coast All Stars where back again with the album “Naturally”, Bill Champlin where this time replaced by Tommy Funderburk from Airplay, King of Hearts.
The album is in the same a capella style also covering more classic rock songs.
