Bluesdoodles rated the album when we listened & reviewed

Check out what we said HERE

25-year old British blues-rock guitarist and singer-songwriter, Laurence Jones, will release his new studio album The Truth on Friday 9th March 2018.  To dovetail the release of the album, Laurence will start his nationwide tour at London’s Borderline on Tuesday 23rd January. All tickets are £15 and available from www.thegigcartel.com and the 24 Hour Box Office 08444 790 898.

Laurence has also launched the pre-order store Check It Out that will feature a selection of bundles including the new album, vinyl, T-shirts, Ltd edition laminates and an exclusive pre-order poster.

Laurence is often labelled as “the future of the blues.” He’s won several major awards and accolades and has sold over 50,000 albums across four albums.  He’s supported the likes of Status Quo, Gary Clark Jr, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, James Bay, Van Morrison, Buddy Guy, Robert Cray, Joe Bonamassa Jools Holland, Eric Burdon, and many more.

Hailed as “one to watch” by all corners of the music industry, including press, concert and festival booking agents, blues fans and various musicians. Over the past five years, Laurence has really come into his own, and with his new album The Truth, he has now developed his own creative skin by writing and performing songs that are distinctive to his unique sound and identity.

Says Laurence, “The direction of this album is one I have always wanted to take and that’s crossover blues, just like my heroes John Mayer, Eric Clapton and even Jimi Hendrix. They managed to really bring the sound of the blues to the masses. This is definitely my favourite album that I have made to date. I can’t wait for people to hear The Truth.”

Laurence recorded the new album at the old Sony Studios in Miami. It proved to be an amazing opportunity when Top Stop Music, a Grammy award-winning record label, signed Laurence and proposed that he record the album in Florida.  “The studio has so much history,” says Laurence. “It has always been a dream of mine to record in America and I wanted this album to have that USA magic that a lot of my favourite records have.” 

With a strong new band, Laurence is breaking new territory as Bluesdoodles witness when he was the special guest of Kenny Wayne Shepherd at The Tramshed Cardiff.

Line-up touring  The Truth Tour 2018 is:-

Laurence Jones (Vocals, Guitar)

Bennett Holland (Keyboards, Backing Vocals)

Phil Wilson (Drums, Percussion)

Greg Smith (Bass Guitar)

Beth Hart Vocal Power Captivates The Forum Tonight

Beth Hart Vocal Power Captivates The Forum Tonight

 

The Forum, a former Art Deco Cinema in Bath tonight is the backdrop for a Beth Hart Solo Concert. The lights dimmed and Beth strode onto the stage full of smiles and confidence. Her opening number was stunning setting the tone of the evening. Alone on the stage, she did not sit behind the Grand Piano but knelt on the stage and sung A Capella giving the audience a true taste of her incredible vocal talent. She greeted the audience, welcomed her sister sitting in the auditorium who had flown in from the States especially for the concert tonight.

 

Beth Hart Vocal Power Captivates The Forum TonightThen with a grace, she sat behind the Grand Piano her first instrument of choice. Tonight without a band Beth was her own accompaniment choosing the instrument that suited the song, so we heard her play acoustic guitar, acoustic bass and electric piano as the evening progressed. We heard her version of Tom Waits Chocolate Jesus and by the third song in Beth had the audience entranced. We were hanging onto every note played and every word she sung and the openness with which she shared her bad times that were at times painful to hear, this was not self-pity but gave context to the songs. Many of the experiences the audience could personally relate to. Beth Hart’s music stripped back, with the lyrics laid bare was an emotional journey for everyone tears were shed on stage and in the auditorium tonight. This is music that connects a great performer with the audience.

Beth Hart Vocal Power Captivates The Forum TonightThe frailty of trying to set yourself free from abuse, it was as if while singing the title song from her album Better Than Home alone on a stage behind the Grand Piano we all experienced a cathartic experience, as the vocal crescendo rose up over the piano in a beautiful art deco setting. Music has power and Beth harnessed it tonight majestically. St Teresa was the next Hart classic sung with pure emotion, the words flowed like a blessing for everyone in the room tonight, touching our inner soul healing hurts and uniting us.

Stepping out from behind the piano with a huge smile she picked up the acoustic sharing family tales and how Scott and her bought an affectionate wreck resulting in a song written in his honour The Ugliest House On the Block from her Bang Bang Boom Boom album.  The Boogieman with soft gentle guitar, calming almost a lullaby despite the dark words. Closing the number with whistling that was sublime, eerie and stunning as the song closed the silence was filled once again with rousing applause. Third instrument of the evening, acoustic bass for Spiders In My Bed from her first album Immortal. The inspiration from the effects of sleep deprivation being wired and tired.

Now a change of tone, that moving from instrument to instrument achieved as she sat behind the electric piano. We heard how after her first career crashed, she was ashamed of the drugs, drink and failure. She had screwed up everything. “For the first time since I was four” she told us she stopped playing the piano. Then she wrote Leave The light On emotional, Beth was wrung out, the tempo was warm with a gospel feel. Tears were spilt with the emotional beauty. Then the mood lighted with Coca-Cola, summertime, beach and boys. Inspired from when the younger ten-year-old Beth thought boys would taste of Coca-Cola! What a set of tubes Beth Has. Warm, sultry, angry, soft and beguiling shape the highest to the lowest notes.  The voice rose up to the top of the vaulted dome as the theatre reverberated with the pure joy of hearing Beth Hart’s voice tonight.

Beth Hart Vocal Power Captivates The Forum TonightWith a wave, a smile and thank you for being a lovely audience Beth left the stage, the audience erupted standing on our feet cheering clapping shouting for more. We were not disappointed Beth obliged. With another four songs from behind the Grand Piano. Starting with Tell Her You Belong To Me from Better Than Home, with more tales, some laughs and the inspiration behind Love Is A Lie when Mark left her eighty-two-year-old Mum for another woman!

Two hours of glorious entertainment and Beth left the stage we wanted more as the applause continued as the house lights went up. A Very special evening in the company of Beth Hart and her wonderful voice.

Many of the numbers were taken from her critically acclaimed album Fire on the Floor they worked perfectly in this setting. Beth Hart’s solo performance was special. Interweaving her performance were songs that reflect her life as her career grows from strength to strength the second time around.

Tonight, Beth Hart at The Forum captivated the audience. Loving every moment Beth was on stage. The music was stripped back, exposed at times showing vulnerability, then brutal and beautiful the link between all the emotions Beth shared tonight was heartfelt honesty.
