Here She Comes is the third album to emerge from the legendary Hazel O'Connor's ongoing collaboration with jazz saxophonist Clare Hirst (The Belle Stars, Communards, David Bowie) and pianist Sarah Fisher (Eurythmics, Sax In The City). The highlights include their highly emotive all new co-written songs, Still Of The Night, Going Home, Dont You Call Me Darling and I Call Out Your Name; original story-telling songs poignant with longing, loss, regret and unrequited love and delivered with unswerving resonance by one of the most distinctive song-stylists of theatrical pop. Hazel O'Connor's unmistakable voice in unison with dextrous double bass and pounding percussion leads to some unusual grooves and new slants on their adventurous covers of the perennial classics Perfect Day (Lou Reed), Good Morning Heartache (Billie Holiday) and Ne Me Quitte Pas (Jacques Brel). Here She Comes is a bold statement of intent and a return to form for Hazel OConnor, redolent as it is with influences as diverse as Tom Waits, Billie Holiday, Lou Reed and French chanson. The tight vocal harmonies and musical interplay result from the trio having spent the last five years touring, performing many sell-out UK and European dates, performances that continue throughout 2014.
