Luba - Secrets And Sins - 1984
Luba (born Luba Kowalchyk, 1958 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada) is a Canadian singer and songwriter. Growing up, she studied voice, guitar, flute, and piano; she later travelled across Canada to perform traditional Ukrainian folk songs at weddings and social gatherings.
In 1979 she formed the band Luba with drummer Peter Marunzak, guitarist Mark Lyman, bassist Mike Zwonok, guitarist John Nestorowich, and keyboardist Doug Short. They rose to fame in the early 1980s with the release of "Everytime I See Your Picture". Their debut EP on Capitol-EMI of Canada followed, and in 1984 they released their first full-length album with the label, entitled Secrets And Sins, which spawned the Canadian hit singles "Let It Go" (mixed by Richard James Burgess) and "Storm Before The Calm". The album, produced by Daniel Lanois, earned her a Juno Award in 1985 for "Best Female Vocalist."
Secrets And Sins is the first full length album on Capitol-EMI of Canada by Canadian singer, Luba and band. Produced by Daniel Lanois, this breakout album won Luba Juno Awards for "Best Female Vocalist" and "Female Vocalist of the Year" in 1985. Included is the calypso-reggae style hit single "Let It Go," later featured on the motion picture soundtrack for 9 1/2 Weeks. Other popular singles include "Secrets And Sins," "Storm Before The Calm" and the remake of "Everytime I See Your Picture.
