Grammy Award nominated American singer/songwriter Beth Hart, who brings blues rock, jazz fusion and soul together, will be at Zorlu PSM on May 10th, as a part of PSM Jazz Festival!
Having released a number of albums in the 1990s, Beth Hart continued her solo projects in the 2000s, as well as her collaborations with guitar legends Joe Bonamassa, Jeff Beck and Slash. Don't Explain, Hart's first collaboration with Bonamassa which featured covers of blues classics, was released in 2011. This album was followed by the Grammy Award nominated Seesaw (2013) and Live in Amsterdam (2014).
Better Than Home, featuring the song Mechanical Heart which topped the iTunes blues charts, was released in 2015. Accompanied by Jeff Beck, the artist sang her songs titled Tell Her You Belong To Me and Nutbush City Limits in Jools Holland's annual Hootenanny program, which marks the end of the year, and succeeded in creating a performance that became the most viewed video of Hootenanny in the official YouTube channel of BBC. After a memorable live performance to a full house in Amsterdam's Heineken Music Hall, Hart started taking the stage in prestigious venues around the world such as Royal Albert Hall and Barbican.
For her album titled Fire on the Floor (2016), Hart called the expert producer Oliver Leiber. Leiber arranged an all-star band to come together with extraordinarily talented members such as Michael Landau (guitar), Waddy Wachtel (guitar), Brian Allen (bass), Rick Marotta (drums), Jim Cox (piano), Dean Parks (acoustic guitar) and Ivan Neville (B3 and organ). As a result, Beth Hart, who is also defined as a multi-instrumentalist with her competence in various instruments such as piano, guitar, cello, bass guitar and percussion, created an album that she has said she is very proud of on multiple occasions.
On May 10th, PSM Jazz Festival will feature Beth Hart, a Grammy Award nominated musician, in a night full of blues rock, jazz fusion and soul!
