SheBeat is a Liverpool singer songwriter telling tales of romantic misadventure within perfect portions of hum-a-long acoustic folk pop. SheBeat mixes 60s pop influences with more recent inspiration from troubadours like PJ Harvey, Norah Jones and Dolly Parton.
After earning her open mic stripes around Liverpool and Chester, the last 12 months saw SheBeat playing at popular music festivals including LIMF, while getting together with Domino Records’ We Are Catchers keys man Peter Jackson and producer Darren Jones to make her first steps into a studio sound.
SheBeat is a huge fan of sixties pop: “I wanted to achieve as retro a sound as I could, while still sounding fresh. The production plan was to keep my sound intimate - like you’d expect from an early 60s folk-pop recording - but interesting. Having only performed solo with my acoustic guitar for company, hearing my tracks with added instruments and vocals was amazing. I’m very excited to be sharing a bigger SheBeat sound with this EP release.”
The self-titled EP (which you can pre-order) is four tracks Mine// Freaky Crazy// She Never Sleeps Alone// Always On The Run, but SheBeat has plenty more original material ready to record. “It was really difficult to choose which of my songs to record for this EP, but I think these are a good introduction to my sound. If I get a good reaction I will record some more and put together an album in the spring. I’m a big fan of vinyl, so perhaps I could invest in a limited edition run.”
The EP launch party is taking place in the hold at The Shipping Forecast on Thursday November 6th as part of Mellowtone’s new night SONGWRITERS AT THE SHIP. Also performing on the night will be SheBeat favourites Rosenblume and Joe Kelly.
