Best known for "Killing Me Softly," written during her Troubadour days in Los Angeles when she saw Don McLean in concert, Lori Lieberman has now recorded 14 LPs and CDs for Capitol Records, Pope Music and Drive On Records. She has gleaned the respect of an industry and a devoted base of fans worldwide.

Bend Like Steel is Lieberman's most personal record to date, and she stated, "The more I said, the more I felt I had to say." The songs were arranged by Lieberman and feature her on guitar and piano with guest artists that include guitarist Lyle Workman (Sting, Beck) and mastered by Gavin Lurssen (Alison Kraus/Robert Plant).

Lieberman's early music history formed in California in the seventies on the Sunset Strip and the West Coast club scene circuit that included singer-songwriters such as Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne and the Eagles. As one of Capitol Records' premier artists, she worked with some of the leading studio musicians - a young Larry Carlton, members of the L.A. Express, Sneaky Pete and pianist Joe Sample. She toured the U.S. and Europe with Randy Newman, Billy Joel, Leonard Cohen, John Sebastian and Rick Nelson, to name a few.

Lieberman was nominated for the Golden Note Award for excellence with A Thousand Dreams on Pope Music, and two CDs followed - Home Of Whispers and Gone Is The Girl, which featured her stunning songs, warm vocals and rich orchestrations.

"...this set, though delicate as gossamer, is heart-ripped-open raw. Closely mic'd to perfection, the anguished interpretation of Simon and Garfunkel's normally jolly 'Cecilia' will turn your head around." Hi-Fi News Album Of The Month - Ken Kessler, Hi-Fi News

"Bend Like Steel is some of the best work you've done. It's tied in my estimation with Home Of Whispers, and you known in what high esteem I hold that CD. Beautiful, beautiful work. And your voice has never sounded better." - Rich Warren, WFMT Midnight Special, Chicago
