Description

Haunted on CD

Ruth Rogers-Wright has always done things her own way. She is a singer/songwriter from Brixton, South London UK, who first came to prominence and artistic acclaim in the mid 80's with the ' new British jazz' movement. Like Nina Simone Ruth has never fitted comfortably into a particular genre of music, having performed jazz, psychedelic dub, electro pop and cabaret. The velvet jazz tones and evocative mystery of Ruth Rogers-Wright takes us on a spell-binding journey in her ep Haunted. Ruth channels the energy and style of the late Dr. Simone in a voice that has been described as a combination of Sara Vaughn, Nina Simone and Sade. Ruth Rogers-Wright has a startling voice and brings a depth of soul to the her work with the Calculators based in Melbourne Australia and 3Head based in South London UK. Haunted the opening track is produced by Al Macaulay and wonderfully performed by 3Head. You is produced and played with electronic mastery by Australia's The Calculators. The Calculators have a floating membership which is anchored by the always present Chris Arkley-Smith and Adam Fischer Reprise is mixed and co produced by legendary producer Adrian Sherwood and 3Head.. These are songs that tell stories. Ruth Rogers-Wright's style of lyric writing and melody is reminiscent of lysergic fragments that captures the spirit and movement of experience.
