Steve Balsamo and Nathalie Lorichs, Singers, in Trondheim. Norway
Trondheim. Steve Balsamo (r) and Nathalie Lorichs at the rehearsals for a concert with Jon Lord and the Lord Chamber Orchestra in the Nidaros Cathedral (Nidarosdomen).
Steve Balsamo - mentioned as Jon Lord's "favourite singer" in the sleevenotes of Jon's latest album and touring regularly with Jon lately - is previously best known for playing the title role in the mid-1990's London Lyceum theatre staging of Jesus Christ Superstar. I have it on good authority that further collaborations with Jon Lord - also in album form - will appear.
Nathalie Lorichs from Sweden is so far perhaps most well known for her vocal parts on the song "Coil" by immensely popular Swedish metal band Opeth. Expect to hear more from her in the future.
2013: In loving memory of Jon, a website dedicated to this concert has been released to the public.
