Grammy Award Winner Eartha Releases “Ink Dry Blue”
Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter, Eartha, proudly announces the release of her third studio CD, “Ink Dry Blue”, September 21, 2010. Eartha performs at the Whiskey-A-Go-Go in CA on November 13, at 8 p.m.
Eartha’s sophomore 2002 release, “Sidebars”, earned her two Grammy Award nominations and a win for “Best Contemporary Soul Gospel Album” at the 45th Annual Grammy Awards hosted in New York City in 2003. The illustrious Grammy recognition came on the heels of the success of her well-received first single, Love Jones, from her 2000 debut CD “This I Know”. “This I Know”,when remixed and released as a five mix Maxi-Single in 2001, pumped dance floors from coast-to-coast and shot to the #2 on the Billboard Hot Dance Breakouts Maxi Singles chart.
After a seven year hiatus to write, record and produce a multitude of other artists, musicians, and producers throughout Los Angeles in underground club, urban, and indie circles, the 5’11” sultry raspy-voice contralto, who sports a honey-blonde buzz cut, is about to make her presence known again. Eartha’s third studio release, “Ink Dry Blue”,in where she wrote all songs and plays all instruments, is being heralded as a re-invention of her award-winning sound and a musical style that is a hybrid of many and evades categorization.
And again, Eartha continues to trail-blaze. A radical departure from the soulful Gospel sound of her previous two CDs, “Ink Dry Blue” promises to be more “indie friendly”, falling into a very accessible and commercial female-fronted Alt-Pop/Rock,Singer/Songwriter category while not losing sight of her distinctive and innovative appeal that has established her as an original and evocative recording artist with her AAA fans.
