Belinda Carlisle is an American singer who gained worldwide fame as the lead vocalist of The Go-Go’s, one of the most successful all-female bands of all time, and then as an iconic solo artist. Over the course of her career, she has sold over 30 million albums.
Born in Los Angeles, California, Carlisle frequented the Hollywood punk scene of the late 1970s, briefly playing drums for legendary punk band The Germs. In 1978, sitting on a street corner with friend Jane Wiedlin, they decided to form The Go-Go’s. Within three years, their album “Beauty and The Beat” was the number one album in the country, one of the best-selling debut albums ever. Their biggest hits included “We Got the Beat”, “Our Lips Are Sealed”, “Vacation” and “Head Over Heels”.
The Go-Go’s became one of the most successful American bands of the 1980s, helping usher new wave music into popular American radio, and becoming the first all-female band who wrote their own music and played their own instruments to ever achieve a number one album.
The Go-Go’s broke up in 1984 and Carlisle embarked on a solo career with her first big hit, released in 1986, the romantic pop ballad “Mad About You”. In the next few years, she released a string of chart-topping staples including “Heaven is a Place on Earth”, a worldwide number one hit. Her latest release “Wilder Shores” is a pop album with a twist, combining a pop sound with Kundalini Yoga mantras in Gurmukhi and some inspirational English songs.
About the Album
Wilder Shores is a genre-busting album of eastern and western influences, fusing the worlds of energizing pop music and elevating Kundalini mantras. The powerhouse voice of pop superstar Belinda Carlisle soars over these chant tracks with precision and grace. With Petra Haden on Violin, Gabe Lopez on piano and guitar, and Arjun Bruggeman on tabla, the musicality of Wilder Shores is deeply authentic to the genre of kirtan, but deftly translated into an ultra-current sound that makes these mantras sound like chart-toppers. The power of the mantras themselves to bring peace, balance and strength to the heart is supported by powerful English tracks, including a new acoustic version of Carlisle's international hit "Heaven is a Place on Earth" that fans will not want to miss. Wilder Shores is filled with music equally at home in yoga studios and rock stadiums, leading the wave of spirituality in the music mainstream.
Wilder Shores debuted at #1 on the Amazon UK World Music Chart!
