Walking, Talking Singing Beth Hart Wins Hearts Tonight

Walking, Talking Singing Beth Hart Wins Hearts Tonight

Walking, Talking Singing Beth Hart Wins Colston Hall Hearts

Colston Hall, sold out always has a fizzing vibe add into to that the expectation of Beth Hart it was before the event like a champagne popping festival.

Walking, Talking Singing Beth Hart Wins Hearts TonightBefore the main act, Canadian Colin James opened the evening joined on stage by band member Chris Cordell. A stunning, crowd-pleasing authentic acoustic blues duo, finger picking, slide showing the dexterity of the fingers as both guitar tones complimented each other. Colin James vocals were strong shaping the lyrics and backing from Chris providing deep tones gave a depth of interest. With the latest album Blue Highway selling well we were treated to Sam Cook and Otis Rush. Colin’s resonator had a great sound that resonated with the audience who were enjoying the music with all the anticipation of Beth bubbling around the auditorium.

The Colston Hall audience were delighted to welcome Beth Hart back to Bristol. As all eyes were on the stage as the band Walking, Talking Singing Beth Hart Wins Hearts Tonightwalked on and the opening bars of More Than You’ll Ever filled the hall the vocals of Beth were heard from the back of the auditorium. Dressed in black with stunning red high heels she walked down the stairs stopping to hug, shake hands and smile without missing a beat. Beth took time as she delighted fans by being up close and personal and then she stepped up onto the stage and her band and Beth were reunited. What an entrance, spellbinding, personal and was a hint of how the rest of the evening was going to be.

 

Walking, Talking Singing Beth Hart Wins Hearts TonightThere is a story behind every number which Beth shared with candour, openness and a few tears with the audience. The hard reality of the lyrics behind the songs were laid bare for the audience to pick over. We saw Beth with microphone, behind the piano and playing guitar, the set list was altered and Colston heard songs not planned but which felt right to Beth tonight. Yes, there were numbers from her current album Fire On the Floor including Coca-Cola and Fat Man. The two songs are so very different one looking back to days on the beach as the teenager and the other, Fat Man, a critic of decadence , and greed a high energy rockier number. But tonight was not about promoting the latest it was about singing the songs that Beth felt she wanted to share with this audience.

Celebrating her home and its quirky uniqueness Beth, accompanied by her acoustic guitar, serenaded The Ugliest House On The Block. It was stage presence and more tonight, Beth engaged with the packed house on so many levels through her songs and sitting staring and looking directly at you. Beth made it feel as she was singing to each of us individually in a small venue, not a packed concert hall.

Walking, Talking Singing Beth Hart Wins Hearts TonightThere were so many spine-tingling tear jerking moments but, A Good Day To Cry was immense in its emotional delivery tonight. We wanted the music to go on but as ever the curfew was winning as Beth asked her husband if she could play one more for him. Thinking about it discarding some songs she decided tonight as the night to sing from Better Than Home, We’re Still Living In The City. Beth and her piano made this such an intimate gig in a large theatre, what talent, what personality as someone shouted, “We love you, Beth!”

 

Walking, Talking Singing Beth Hart Wins Hearts TonightThe encore again was a change from the script with her wonderful emotive version of I’d Rather Go Blind and then singing A Capella version of the song, because her Manager prefers it that way, As long As I have A Song, tonight was special. Thank you, Beth, as you sang you did Pour a Dream tonight.

Tonight we were enchanted under the spell of Beth’s aural seduction her vocals purred, growled and beseeched as she filled the hall with warmth, sadness and hope.
Beth Hart tonight delivered more than a song, more than a show it was open, heart-rending connecting to us on an individual level. Tonight was music therapy for everyone.

Beth Hart Fire On The Floor

Beth Hart Fire On The Floor

Beth Hart Fire On The Floor

 

The mood is set sultry, melodic, moody with Beth at her Piano  and her vocals that cajole you to get into the jazzy swing with Jazz Man. Opening Fire On The Floor is intimate setting the next forty-five minutes, it is a journey exploring the interaction between words, vocals and melodic lines underlying the texture of every song. The shape of the number changes, with a landscape created with the feel of a cinematic film score. This is a vocal painting of Love Gangster with a flinty edge and the driving instrumentation that never overpowers but adding layers of textures and tonal pathways. Throughout the album it is Beth’s vocals that are the lead breaks and the mixture of musicians carefully selected by acclaimed producer Oliver Leiber that are the foil for the majesty of Beth, the singer, songwriter extraordinaire.

Fire on The Floor is scorching hot as the range of genres are explored creating at the heart of the sound Beth, the reason the album exists. The mix of styles, reflects the vagaries of fire, white heat then cooler blue flames, the emotional wrenching of the red and orange flames that lick around the boots of the songs the lyrics.

The energy is both raw and controlled, rocking and reflective as Love Is A Lie, full of dark and deep undercurrents. Half way through and the path of Beth’s fire changes again with Fatman, with a rocking full on sound we are full of Beth’s energy.  The title track is ringing with western country vibe, the soundscape is huge and then the intimacy of Beth’s vocals. She is singing to you as an individual controlled and full of her own self-determination. We feel her pain and understand the journey as a relationship fades into the Fire On The Floor every emotion is smoldering with a purpose.

The whole album has a feeling of a solo album, yet it is the instrumentation that punctuates and adds shadows and colouring to Beth’s words. The band is superb empathetic to the feel Beth is creating with a carefully chosen mix of keys, guitars and percussion at times stripped down other times a fuller sound.  We feel for the emotions of a Good Day to Cry and Picture In the Frame captures a moment in time forever, the simplicity of the music lets the words shine like a fiery halo. Closing with No Place Like Home the piano and vocals are in perfect harmony they are as one as you are pulled deep into the lyrics.   We all can celebrate the wonders of home a place of love, warmth and dreams where we can be ourselves.

Beth, growls, cajoles, yearns is angry and sad these infections are the components. In this follow up to Better Than Home, we have an album that crosses genres celebrating the power of the song and the singer. Every track works there is a logic to the order. This is a personal album that is more than an introspective self-indulgent project, it is an album you will want to hear from beginning to end. The listener will cry, sigh and chuckle with Beth and throughout will have the  pure unadulterated pleasure of being in the company of Beth Hart an amazing artist.

Beth Hart, on Fire On The Floor has garnered together a dozen tracks that flow and warm up the speakers with a raw, charismatic and open delivery of intensely personal emotionally driven lyrics.  Fire On The Floor is a majestic album and will burn brightly long after 2016 fades into a memory. Must be a real contender for album of the year.
