Lion Music is proud to present two re-releases from the world’s most famous female guitarist Jennifer Batten –  "Above, Below & Beyond" and "Jennifer Batten’s Tribal Rage – Momentum".

“Above, Below & Beyond” was Jennifer’s debut solo album and saw her garner major press attention in the worlds leading guitar and rock press. Home to devastating technique, a unique touch and individuality the album is rightly regarded as one of the premier guitar instrumental offerings ever recorded.

Background Info
The buzz on Jennifer Batten rose from the guitar underground, and the guitar magazines promptly began chronicling her savvy musicianship and highly original approach to the electric guitar in print. At one point Batten was in 6 different bands, playing everything from straight ahead rock, to metal, fusion, and funk. A major turning point came when she was selected from over one hundred guitarists to play in Michael Jackson's highly skilled band which toured the world for one and a half years playing for over four and a half million people. Jennifer wasted no time after the “Bad” Tour's grand finale, diving into work on her own album with renowned producer (and Stevie Wonder guitarist) Michael Sembello. The stunning results can be heard on “Above, Below, and Beyond”, the title appropriately describing the interesting diversity within. With this debut release, the world at large learned what all the excitement was about and despite being out of print and hard to obtain for a number of years is available once again via Lion Music.

On the album Jennifer comments, “Above, Below, and Beyond” was my debut record in which I explored a lot of different musical directions. I began recording this in the 80’s when all the hair bands were raging, and guitar players were all concerned with speed and flash. Michael Sembello of the hit song “Maniac” fame produced it”.
