Sally-Anne Whitten has yet again embraced her unique blend of swampy blues, R&B, southern rock and West Coast country. Over the years the artist has honed her very own style of ‘funky country’ and this one reeks of New Orleans where she was inspired to create it.
Collaborations abound – with her favourite singers, songwriters and musicians including Jimmy Craz, Rae Moody, Allison Forbes and Mick Pealing. ‘Watch It Burn’ lead single, is about doing life your way, staying true to yourself, and not being afraid to say good bye to people or things that are detrimental. Sally-Anne was listening to a lot of Robben Ford and John Hiatt just before this track was born. ‘Tennessee Lullaby’ title was inspired by a friend’s top pick for baby names.
‘Misfit’ – Sally-Anne and co get down and a little dirty here. Lyrically, it pulls no punches – you know those air-kissing, fake members of society depicted in the song – and Matt O’Leary stars on harmonica. ‘You Can’t Hide From A Broken Heart’ was co-written by Allison Forbes and explores grief and loss.
