February 9th, 2018 – RSO, the new genre-spanning musical duo from platinum-selling singer-songwriters and world-class guitarists Richie Sambora and Orianthi, have released dual singles just in time for Valentine’s Day. The pair put their own spin on Sonny & Cher‘s classic love song “I Got You Babe“and they’ve also debuted a brand new RSO original “Forever All The Way“. PRESS HERE to feel the love! The double duets premiered exclusively via People.com!
“‘I Got You Babe’ is one of the best duets of all time, and it’s a song that reminds us that true affection has no limitations,” said Richie Sambora. “Ori and I loved paying homage to this timeless Sonny & Cher classic. We’ve been doing our own duets and writing so much music together as RSO, and ‘Forever All The Way’ is a song we wrote about sincere commitment. And just like Valentine’s Day, this song isn’t only about romance, it’s also about love for a child, a parent, a friend or a family member.”
Late last year, Richie Sambora and Orianthi (RSO) surprised fans by releasing two EPs – Making History and Rise. A full length album is slated for release in April following Richie Sambora‘s induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame with Bon Jovi.
The music’s versatility gets at the heart of RSO, encompassing elements of rock, blues, pop, R&B, and country and creating a whole new lane for male-female vocal duets thanks to the harmonious blend of Sambora and Orianthi’s voices.RSO puts the undeniable chemistry that that they have both onstage and off on display – they self-describe their journey as both a real-life couple and creative partners as “a true Bonnie and Clyde rock and roll kind of story.” They have plenty of stadium-ready melodies, uplifting lyrics, and top-notch musicianship, and the Riseand Making HistoryEPs are just the first taste of a lot more music to come from RSO. Both Sambora (who has sold over 130 million albums worldwide) and Orianthi (who has shared stages with the likes of Michael Jackson, Santana, Prince, ZZ Top and was the first female member of Alice Cooper’s band) have written chart-busting singles, toured the globe extensively, collaborated with superstar artists, and released three solo albums each. So, it’s amazing to see these two platinum-selling singer-songwriters and world-class guitarists come together and give life to their own singular vision as a duo.
