Beth Hart & Joe Bonamassa to Release New Album Seesaw


LA-based singer-songwriter Beth Hart, known for her raw and powerful blues-rock sound, wraps her expressive vocals around classic soul covers on Seesaw, the second album that grew out of her musical ties with the acclaimed blues guitarist Joe Bonamassa. The album is released on Deluxe CD+DVD and Double Vinyl in the UK/Europe on Monday May 20 by Provogue Records (followed by US release on Tuesday May 21).

After their first successful collaboration on Don’t Explain, this highly talented duo is back with Seesaw. As with Don’t Explain, the Seesaw album is tastefully produced by Kevin Shirley (Black Crowes, John Hiatt, Joe Bonamassa). "Beth’s got a pretty heady voice, very reminiscent of Janis Joplin," says Shirley. "She’s also got a lot of Etta James in her. With this material, there’s gentleness to the way she delivers the most heartfelt tunes. She’s done a fantastic job."

Bonamassa and Hart crossed paths numerous times whilst playing the same festivals in Europe. In early 2010, Bonamassa attended one of her concerts in London. "It was killer," says Bonamassa. He suggested they do a project together sometime. Don’t Explain took shape that summer. Now, two years later, the follow-up album, Seesaw, captures 11 new blistering tracks, including covers from Billie Holiday (Them There Eyes), Melody Gardot (If I Tell You I Love You), Etta James (A Sunday Kind Of Love) and the title track Seesaw, made popular by Aretha Franklin.
