About Book of Love

One of the premiere first wave electronic groups, Book of Love emerged out of the New York City scene in the mid-’80s and was signed by the legendary Seymour Stein to Sire Records. On April 1, 1986, art-students-turned musicians Ted Ottaviano, Susan Ottaviano, Jade Lee and Lauren Roselli released the band’s debut album. Between 1986 and 1993, the band released four albums and had a steady string of influential club hits, including the classics “Boy” and “I Touch Roses”, the ebullient “You Make Me Feel So Good”, and “Pretty Boys & Pretty Girls/Tubular Bells” which crossed over on the Billboard Hot 100. The band’s music was featured in the classic films Planes, Trains and Automobiles, Silence of the Lambs, and American Psycho.

In 2016, Book of Love marked their 30th anniversary with the release of a new compilation album “MMXVI – Book of Love – The 30th Anniversary Collection”. The band has been promoting the album with a continuing tour across the U.S in over a dozen cities.
