15 Minutes with Barry

todayAugust 18, 2011

15 Minutes

Iconic singer, songwriter, and showman, Barry Manilow recently spoke with RSU Radio about his latest album, 15 Minutes, and the extreme departure from his earlier works.

“It’s the most different album I have ever made in my whole career…and it was the most challenging thing to do.” Mr. Manilow tells RSU-Radio. 15 Minutes is the story of a young man trying to make it in the music business, as well as the challenges and dangers of instant fame. The choice of character also had an impact on the overall sound of the album.

According to Mr. Manilow, the difficulty was to center it around a guitar rather than a piano, as he has been accustomed to in all of his previous works. While being the most challenging, he feels that it is the most rewarding album he has ever created.
