Like many great artists, singer songwriter Tina Harrod, continues to push boundaries and blaze a path of her own. Her acclaimed album of jazz infused covers Worksongs (2008), then the visceral and cathartic album of originals Temporary People (2010) rightly saw Harrod recognized as one of Australia’s finest singers.
Now with The Revolution is Eternal Tina Harrod once again explores new territory with an album of original songs co-written with bassist/composer Jonathan Zwartz and the great LA based pianist and Hammond organ player Larry Goldings, and produced by award winning composer and piano player Stu Hunter.
“I wanted to make a different album…something modern. I didn’t really know how I was going to achieve it until I started working with Stu Hunter. Once we started working on the demos, I knew I wanted Stu to be involved on a deeper level. I could see that we were doing some interesting stuff together and I wanted to go in that direction.”
The result is an album that spans a range of musical textures and emotional shades from the dark, electronic spaciousness of songs like “Holding On” and “The Revolution is Eternal” (“Gil Scott Heron’s masterful album ‘I’m New Here’ inspired me to keep going and try to move ahead as an artist” says Tina) to the uplifting swing of “Sometimes” and the powerful, everything-laid-bare soul of “What is a Woman” and “Sweep Me Off My Feet”.
Tina Harrod can sing about love, loss and pain like no other. In baring her soul, both on stage and in her recorded work, she channels personal experience into universal themes that continue to resonate long after the last note has been played.
