Release Date: Out Now
If nothing else, the press pack for this release has introduced me to a new word: ukeleleist. Fortunately, there is more. Santa Monica’s Jessica Gerhardt has created new single ‘Be my Hands’ which is a song of two personalities with the first being a dark, sinewy, almost trip-hop inspired verse that shudders in the shadows and craves the warmth that it cannot reach. On the flip-side of this coin is the chorus, full of light, hope and a fresh energy borne out of blending folk melodies with more contemporary melodies. Running throughout this is Gerhardt’s free and meandering voice dripping in soul, feeling and beauty. And she’s a renowned ukeleleist too.
