A few years ago, there were whispers around blues-rock singer-songwriter Beth Hart’s orbit about an album of Led Zeppelin covers, meticulously put together by superstar producer Rob Cavallo (Green Day, Linkin Park, My Chemical Romance). The body of work featured imaginative arrangements, A-list musicianship, and tasteful orchestral touches. The only thing missing was vocals.
Beth’s dynamically expressive singing would be the perfect fit. Yet, the Grammy-nominated blues-rock singer-songwriter was hesitant. She was enjoying the slow-burn jazz, soul, and blues settings of her recent albums, as this vibe reflected a sense of centeredness and composure she had painstakingly earned.
