Album Review

Separating from producer Kevin Shirley for the first time in three records, Beth Hart chose to work with Rob Mathes and Michael Stevens for 2015's Better Than Home. A change in producers helped Hart change direction, letting her depart from the down-and-dirty blues belting she specialized in throughout her time with Shirley, reconnecting slightly to her singer/songwriter beginning while emphasizing deep soul roots. Despite opening with the tight Memphis groove of "Might as Well Smile," most of the album is grandly introspective — majestic brooding ballads with a clear debt to early Elton John. This cinematic landscape provides a nice contrast to Hart's raw, nervy vocals, accentuating the aching in her delivery. This emotional immediacy compensates for the sometimes elliptical songs, songs that take a little while to settle, but the risks Hart's taken on Better Than Home pay off: this is a distinctive, ambitious record that takes advantage of her natural talents in surprising ways.

Amazing Power

Beth Knocks it out of the park every time she steps to the mic. Her voice is powerful but pure and you believe every word. Like another reviewer said 'she is not Janis or Aretha'. She is Beth and that is more than enough. If you love the blues you will love Beth.

I can taste the Blue....

Beth is an incredible Blues Singer who possesses an astounding range and power that she is perfectly willing to unleash on unsuspecting audiences resulting in some of the highest energy Concerts one can ever hope to hold tickets for. Beyond the sheer power of her voice, she has excellent control and in the midst of all the power she will often astound with sheer nuance.

No she is not ‘Janis’ or 'Aretha' but by god she has a place at the table and before she is done she may have surpassed them.

Not What I Expected To Hear

This is something! This girl has potential in my opinion...confident and strong in her music
