I Give You My Sunshine - Hazel O Connor

I Give You My Sunshine
Striding into the spotlight in 1980 with cult movie "Breaking Glass”, award-winning singer-songwriter, Hazel O'Connor immediately became an iconic figure. Her latest album, "I Give You My Sunshine” is an emotional tour de force - her unique voice delivering with renewed passion and fire. The album is a introspective soulful dip into a stunning repertoire of the old, the new and everything in between. The moving title track ‘I Give You My Sunshine’ about the sunshine in her own heart which was all and everything that Hazel could give to her hospice bound dying mother.

Other highlights of the album include very personal new compositions; ‘I Would Rather (Wonderwoman)’, ‘From The Very First Hello’, ‘Rebecca’ about a close friend who died from cancer in her thirties and ‘Cinderella Moment’ - a song about enjoying the company of friends and watching the clock strike midnight and wondering whether to go home.

Two songs are from the Nina Simone songbook, ‘Feeling Good’ and ‘Do What You Gotta Do’ and there are stunning new jazz-blues inspired versions of songs from Hazel's own back catalogue ‘Decadent Days’ and ‘That's Life’ the latter with the verses emotively sung in French. ‘In These Shoes’ is Hazel's take on a song originally written by the much missed Kirsty MacColl whom Hazel remembers with fondness.

Accompanied by virtuoso saxophonist Clare Hirst (The Belle Stars, Communards, David Bowie) and the stunning Sarah Fisher (Eurythmics, Sax in the City) on keyboards, this powerful blend of voices and musicianship brings a classy touch of cabaret style energy to Hazel's vibrant performance. The trio will be performing across the country as ‘Bluja’ on a forthcoming tour to promote the new album.

Press:-

"Her latest work is one of those moments of differentiation: a jazz-blues collection of covers and revisits in the company of keyboardist Sarah Fisher and The Belle Stars’ saxophonist Clare Hirst. They make a most sophisticated and sensitive trio.”  

Record Collector Christmas 2011 / Ian Abrahams

"Her latest album showcases a mellower sound drawing on jazz and blues influences. Hazel’s voice has softened with time, and she is perfectly complimented by Claire Hirst on saxophone and Sarah Fisher on keyboards.”
