A few years ago, critics and radio programmers throughout the country
were captivated by Beth Hart, with Billboard proclaiming that her
"voice and lyrical wisdom are like red stripes painted across
a black wall ... Hart's got the stuff of icons." Yet soon after
the success of her 1999 hit, "L.A. Song," she seemingly
disappeared from the music scene. Now, the celebrated singer has
returned with her most revealing and personal album to date. Released
on October 21, 2003, Hart's long-awaited follow-up to Screamin'
For My Supper has already been making waves in the music press.
Music Connection gushes "even at their most intense, the songs
have a sense of hope and vulnerability expressed by lyrics that
vividly articulate her struggles -- and desire for redemption."
"The songs talk about getting well, and also about the darkness
of being down and then the light of being back in the living again,"
explains Hart, alluding to the substance abuse problems that disrupted
her career. "To have gotten the chance to make this record,
and especially to have completed it, was like, 'Wow, you got back
in the game, and you went for it!' I thought I'd really blown the
opportunity to ever do that again."
