Following a British Tour highlighted by a concert at The Royal Albert Hall, Samantha Parton took time out to produce ''Songs for Love Drunk Sinners'', the new album from Jan Bell. The two women first met in ''90''s New Orleans, when they played together as The Illegitimate Daughters of Johnny Cash.
The album features an array of emerging and established artists from the Americana, folk and alternative country community. The Brooklyn based core being Violinist Rima Fand (Luminescent Orchestrii); and Pedal Steel player Bob Hoffnar (HEM). Special guest vocals from ANTI Recording artist Jolie Holland, Aimee Curl (ThaMusement), Sam Miller (Redbeard) and Texas tornado Laura Freeman.
Songs for Love Drunk Sinners is a shift in style from old-timey country blues - to a full and richly layered,
dream-scape sound. Previous albums, and her work with The Maybelles is more clearly rooted in traditional folk.
Miners adapts the words of War Poet Wilfred Owen with guest vocals from Elyas Khan (Nervous Cabaret); and there is a cover of Snake Song by Townes Van Zandt.
Album art features the paintings of Pasqualina Azzarello, as featured in the New York Times (Summer ''06) for her construction wall murals in d.u.m.b.o., Brooklyn. https://www.tradebit.com
“ Jan''s stage was my personal favorite at the dumbo arts festival.'' Alison Tocci (Publisher) Time Out NY.
“Maybe growing up in Nottinghamshire is what sets Jan bell apart from the run of local lady folkies – or perhaps its the slide guitar, banjo and mandolin that suggest a Renaissance Faire on the Mississippi Delta. Her album ''Between the Bridges'' isn''t even as gorgeous an ode to New York as ''I want no country'' - as sad, plain-spoken and skeptical as any song anybody wrote about 9-11.”
Chuck Eddy as Senior Editor, The Voice.
“She is a truth teller, a true troubadour, heart breaker and heart mender.”
