The Album (CD in 6-panel digipack)
This is an album of raw, passionate, multi-hued blues-rock with a very live feel. Taking its lead from the broader canvas of the previous studio album More Sinner Than Saint, The Space Between Us sees Rebecca stretching and pushing her own artistic boundaries even further, while staying true to her blues/rock roots. The eleven tracks (ten all-new originals from Birkett & Downes, including a choice cover) range from big, bold blues rock to darker, moodier and atmospheric material that allows Rebecca to deliver her at times very personal lyrics with vocal conviction.
The one cover is a melodically blues rockin’ rendition of Free’s A Little Bit of Love.
The album was programmed, recorded, produced and engineered by Steve Birkett with assistance from Steve Birkett Jnr. Mixing and mastering was by Gavin Monaghan of Magic Garden Studio in Wolverhampton, whose extensive track record includes working with Editors, Scott Matthews, Robert Plant and Paolo Nutini. Once again, Rebecca’s signature vocal style is to the fore and Steve’s multi-instrumental talents are on display throughout the album, along with important contributions from the gigging band – Neil Ablard (drums), Nigel Darvill (Keys) and Vince Yarrington (Bass). And whilst most of the recording was done in separate sessions, the band got together in the studio to live record Rattle My Cage.
The collective result is an album that should be played as loud as possible to enjoy the liberating live feel of the tracks.
