2014 EU reissue on 180g LP -Singer/songwriter Beth Hart's Rune Westberg-produced 2010 album, My California, tells confessional stories from the revered vocalist's rich life. "Sister Heroine" is about the loss of her sister, Sharon and the guilt that comes with feeling joy after someone you love has gone. "Like You (And Everyone Else)" is about the struggle in dealing with bi-polar disorder, wishing to be like everybody else and realizing that we're all different. "Everybody Is Sober" describes the feeling that everybody else seems to have their act together while you yourself are moving backwards. The production of My California led to Beth’s collaboration with guitar superstar Slash. He played on the track, "Sister Heroine," and then Beth co-wrote and sang the song "Mother Maria," which was released on his own album.
Beth Hart’s incredible, soul-baring voice and musicianship has earned her passionate admirers in guitar legends Joe Bonamassa, Buddy Guy and Jeff Beck. Two album collaborations with Bonamassa, 2013’s Seesaw and 2011’s Don’t Explain, made it to the top of the Billboard Blues Albums Chart (#1 and #3 respectively). Seesaw also earned Hart a Grammy nomination for Best Blues Album.
Hart’s Buddy Guy tribute alongside Jeff Beck at the 2012 Kennedy Center Honors received a standing ovation led by President and Mrs. Barack Obama. Hart has had a series of celebrated solo albums including 1999’s Screamin’ For My Supper (which spawned the Top 10 Billboard Modern AC Chart hit “L.A. Song (Out Of This Town)” and 2003’s platinum-selling Leave The Light On, which produced the #1 single “Learning To Live” in Denmark. Her 2012 album Bang Bang Boom Boom hit #3 in the Billboard Top Blues Album Chart.
