"I progress musically everytime I write news songs. The making of Hypnotized was an incredible experience for me, I hear that magic every time I listen to the album. During the recording process I felt as if I was reaching the peak of my creativity. It was an experience I will never forget. Working with producer/guitarist Ben Rice changed my life forever, he captured the exact sound I was looking for. Ben was also able to bring in some incredible musicians to be a part of the recording. The first five songs were recorded with Ben Rice on guitars/bass, his drummer Austin Shumacher, from his band The Blackbells and my friend John Roggie / keyboardist who's on tour with Bebel Gilberto. When you listen to the song "I Love The Beatles, I Love The Rolling Stones" you'll discover it's a autobiographical song about the evolution and experience of my life as a pop artist. It's about rediscovering the love for my favorite music as a teenager, the 60's mod rock and 70's rock that inspired me to write songs at a very early age. It's an album about my personal experiences of love and life." - Lulu Nocera
