Beverley Hillbilly Records
Britt’s soft, sweet vocals are the heart of this album and have a similar tone to that of Ashley Monroe. The Australian songstresses latest album is her most personal one. After moving away from Nashville and back to Australia, Britt’s sound – though as authentic as ever – has shifted to channel the 90’s and early naughties country sound that first helped to launch her career.
She continues to draw upon real life experience as she talks of being a mother and a daughter in the songs Gonna Be Mumma and Mother. Meanwhile the real stand out track is Hard To Love, the duet she performs with acclaimed singer-songwriter Jim Lauderdale. The use of traditional instruments such as fiddle and slide guitar bring this record to life and really support the journey that Britt takes you on. This is especially evident in the final track Long Way Around which serves to evaluate Britt’s journey, her falsetto in the chorus is beautifully controlled and the solo on the slide guitar is refreshing to hear.
There is a strong identity throughout – a fiercely independent woman and proud mother, deep seated within her country roots is telling her truth and I highly recommend you listen!
