Award-winning artist Babe Gurr has a curious musical mind that makes her a hard one to label, with her unique blend of roots, blues, world and pop. But who would want to? This singer-songwriter and her polished band bring a crowd-pleasing vibe to every show they perform. With intelligent lyrics and memorable melodies superbly delivered in a warm, sultry voice, Babe is the total package. It all comes through loud and clear on her CDs and live stage show. Babe has headlined at numerous festivals and has played some of the most popular and prestigious concert halls across North America.
Babe’s songwriting has received accolades; taking the win for the Sonic Bids Nashville Song Contest, ranked in the Top 10 picks of the 2013 Indie International Songwriting Contest; and being selected as a finalist for two self-penned tunes in the 12th Annual Great American Song Contest and for "My Love" in the 13th Annual Great American Song Contest.
Babe’s new recording is a treat, although not always sweet. Hearts Up To The Sun - a five song EP - features Babe’s talents in full form as producer, singer and songwriter. Musically it is as hot as Louisiana hot sauce and the horn arrangements sound like they might well have come from there. Babe’s voice is sounding as good or better than ever. The band is great. But the songs… wow!- the songs mark a step forward. They are even better than the ones she won awards for with her last release- SideDish. This is a full course meal covering the full range of human emotion from antipasto through desert. The message of these songs and this recording is, as Babe sings in one song, ‘laugh, cry, be honest.’ Great sounds carry great words. This is very good work indeed from an artist who just keeps getting better.
