From stage classics to blues and bolero, Criss’s candid song writing, inimitable vocals and production prowess shine on this autobiographical release. Simply put, One For All has it all.
Peter Criss says:
“People ask me, ‘Peter, aren’t you afraid that you’ve exposed yourself emotionally on this album?’ I reply, ‘No! When I started Kiss, I wore lipstick and high heels.’ The public thought we were insane, but that didn’t affect me.”
“When I pour my heart out I hold nothing back. On this album I really wanted to be in command of my voice, so I went back to singing lessons. When I sang ‘Send In The Clowns’ I was, for the first time in my life, in total control. I also had the privilege of working with an urban boys’ choir from the Church of Transfiguration.”
“It was a case of stepping out of being The Catman and becoming Peter Criss the producer. I never really did it all [previously]: write, arrange, sing, drum and produce. This album may take a while for fans to understand, but when they get it I think they’ll love it.”
