Enter Renee. A jagged little pill of feminine randomness – her vocals addictively-educed with a lonely-hearts club attitude. Together under the joshua tree the duo begin to see parallel lines. Their sound the only element needed to build a bridge over troubled water.
What’s the story, morning glory? Nevermind. This is Private Life. Renee Cassar & Jamie Barlow ad2) Private Life - an AOR / hard rock female fronted band. Band Members: Jennifer Blakeman: keyboards, backing vocals Kelly Breznik: vocals Chris Frazier: drums, backing vocals Danny Johnson: guitars, backing vocals Steve Kershisnik: bass, backing vocals A coed group including the Blackfoot, Rick Derringer, Axis, Rod Steward and Alcatrazz credited guitarist Danny Johnson.
PRIVATE LIFE arose from a project put together by Johnson with vocalist Kelly Breznik. The pair had worked together in a band previously. Johnson and Breznik were joined by Johnson's ex-Axis and Rod Steward band colleague Jay Davis on bass, erstwhile Badfinger drummer Lenny Campanaro and a keyboard player by the name of Jennifer Blakeman. Blakeman had played with Breznik in previous incarnations of PRIVATE LIFE, the name having been in the custody of Louisiana born Breznik for some five years prior to its adoption by the singer for her new project with Johnson. It was whilst Kelly was still living in Louisiana that she became friends with Valerie Bertinelli, the actress wife of Van Halen's Eddie Van Halen, but it was through using engineer Don Landee on demo tapes in Los Angeles that Van Halen became interested in working with the band. Van Halen wound up co-producing PRIVATE LIFE's debut album, 'Shadows', with Donn Landee.
The group signed to Warner Brothers and almost naturally were then taken out on tour by Van Halen. The band's sophomore album, a self-titled offering, found Van Halen and Ted Templeman on board although Jay Davis and Lenny Campanaro had made way for Steve Kershisnik and Chris Frazier respectively. Amongst the tracks on offer was a cover of Van Morrison’s 'Domino'. In 1991 Danny Johnson was working with ex D'Molls singer Desi Rexx and former UFO drummer Andy Parker in Rexx And Johnson. By 1996 he had enrolled into the veteran act Steppenwolf, appearing on their 'Feed The Fire' album. Discography 1. Shadows (1988) 2.
