ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Vocalist, composer, and multi-instrumentalist Alex Bosworth has been heralded as one of the freshest creative spirits to emerge recently from New Orleans' rich musical landscape. Her especially rich yet clear voice coupled with the deep sincerity of her writing make this a much anticipated debut album.

Grammy award winning engineer Neal Cappellino (Alison Krauss) and Grammy winning mastering engineer Richard Dodd (Civil Wars) signed on to be a part of the project and their contribution to the depth and fullness of the sound of the recording is apparent throughout.

The title track "Here For You" is one that encapsulates the undercurrent of love, loss and longing that permeates every song. The beautiful acoustic guitar solo on this track is played by famous New Orleans based Jazz guitarist Brian Seeger, showing off his sensitivity to the song's sentiment. Supported by New York-based bass player Dan Loomis, guitarist Chris Adkins and percussionist Alexey Marti, Alex Bosworth's voice is at its most sweet when joined on the choruses by fellow singer-swongwriter Alan Hampton as they sing to one another.

Not to be missed are the stark and deeply moving tracks "Home Again" and "Prayer" and the uplifting "Let It Go" featuring Jack Craft on cello and Simon Lott on drums.

From her quirky and fun tune "Not About You" on which she plays Marimba to her lush and harmonically rich song "Sweet Friend" on which she plays acoustic piano, she defies classification not only as an instrumentalist but as a songwriter.

Each song on this album is a world onto itself tied together by Ms. Bosworth's captivating voice. She has assembled a stellar band, each player hailing from different genres of music, and together they have created something truly unique. It is an exploration in vulnerability and from the very first note to the very last chord it is wonderfully heartfelt and moving.

Crazy Assed Beatle Bob

Leaving you my Heart
Albums are often praised for their smart song writing, their tuneful melodies or the technical prowess. While great albums must possess all these things, what elevates them from these anchors is a feeling that they are indispensable, that they are the soundtrack of a time in your life, that you are forever changed by them. Alex Bosworth's debut, Here for You, is one of those rare albums.

The album defined by it's first and title track, Here for You. "Some times you're up, and then you're down, Sometimes you feel like you might drown", drawn in the warmth of Alex's amazing voice, sets the stage for a tale of an old love. This is definitely a love cast in autumn. The major forks in the road have already been chosen. The ecstatic moments and great losses have already passed. This is a love that is seen as unconditional. The beautiful harmony of the refrain "Can't you see, it don't matter, I'm here for you. It don't make no difference, I'll always love you." resonates with a wholeness.

Each song that follows gently unspools a tale of solitudes. Of long absence In Leaving You My Heart it can best be felt in the lines "It's six a.m. and I've been awake for hours." and "I don't know how we've come so far to just loose sight of who we are."

These feelings are exemplified in the arresting fourth track, Home Again. "You made me sing your favorite song, and said it won't be long, til I'm home again." A tear jerker of a song, one of great hopes that have come to decorate yesterdays. "Tomorrow is a gift we may not see" aches with the exasperated dismissal of the fantasy.

Thankfully, not all of the album is doom and gloom. There is a forgiveness of the more careless moments of this love. Not About You and Smile for Me are two tracks that play with a Carribean influence. On tracks Prayer and Sweet Friend, Miss Bosworth expresses her singular style for singing jazz. If much of what is on display here leans towards pop, these songs express a versatility that hopefully emerges in future recordings.

Anyway, glowing review. My only hope is that one day this album is just the first in a collection of Alex Bosworth albums. She's that good.
