'Rugged and Unplugged' is a beautifully stripped back acoustic album which features songs from across Adrian Vandenberg’s career.
This project created the opportunity to strip down the big orchestral arrangements on songs such as 'What Doesn't Kill You' and 'Breathing' to just Vandenberg on acoustic guitar and the voice of Jan Hoving. His 1983 hit ‘Burning Heart’ gets a stunning reworking.
Like the two MoonKings albums, 'MoonKings' (2014) and 'MK II' (2017) it was produced by Adrian Vandenberg himself. It was recorded between Vandenberg's home studio and Jan Hoving's farm which gives it the relaxed, intimate and natural feel, away from the clinical studio environment. It is Vandenberg and Hoving doing what they do and love the most, playing music straight from the heart.
