Borrowed from the title of a Klaus Nomi song, Lightning Strikes marks the first collaboration between New York icon Joey Arias and acclaimed singer/songwriter Kristian Hoffman - both of whom were close friends and collaborators of the late German counter-tenor. [Nomi and Arias famously backed up David Bowie on Saturday Night Live in 1979 and the two were close friends up until the time of Nomi's death. Hoffman wrote some of Nomi's signature songs ("Nomi Song," "Total Eclipse, "Simple Man") and did the arrangements for others.] In addition to a Nomi song or two, Lightning Strikes features a mix 70's rock anthems, popular standards, original material and Arias' signature 'channeling' of Billie Holiday.
