Biography

Kristin Hersh
May 2010

After founding her influential art-punk band Throwing Muses, at age 14, Kristin Hersh went on to spend the next 25 years confounding expectations and breaking rules - both her own and others’. From life as the reluctant front person for the Muses, to the solo career she swore never would happen, through the founding of an ambitious and altruistic ...

When Kristin Hersh embarked on her solo career with 1994's masterpiece Hips & Makers, it was as if she was determined to exorcise every trace--bar her distinctive, serrated vocals--of the unique sound she had developed with Throwing Muses. Hips & Makers was a brutally sparse, ascetically acoustic recording (and, incidentally, one of the finest albums of the 1990s). Since then, Hersh's reliably excellent solo albums have plotted a gradual course back to whence she came. Strange Angels and Sky Motel saw the reintroduction of electric guitars and an under-rated (especially by Hersh herself) pop sensibility. Though Sunny Border Blue is a solo album in the strictest sense--Hersh plays all the instruments, except drums on one track--it sounds almost like a follow-up to Throwing Muses' The Real Ramona and Hunkpapa, which is obviously no bad thing. "White Sucker", "Trouble" and "Spain" are especially impressive additions to one of the most formidable songbooks ever written. --Andrew Mueller

She has done it once again - here we have KH at her angriest and most vulnerable, which for us means another excellent piece of work. Tracks like "Your Dirty Answer" and "37 Hours" remind us that she can still be as raw and rockin' as anytime with Throwing Muses, but then we are drawn into the underlying theme of the record, and the emotion and heart-on-sleeve lyrics of songs like "Summer Salt" and "Listerine" dig deep.
A nice surprise is the cover of Cat Stevens' "Trouble", which, far from sticking out, meshes well with her own achievements. An excellent album, her best since going it alone. Buy this, then work backwards through an amazing catalogue of work.

This is a great album - for fans of acoustic folk, its an essential that you should own. Kristin combines her unique, emotional, poppy folk style to superb effect. So we shimmering fingerpicked songs that resonate through her emotional, honest voice.
At times patchy, with a range of solo work and with The Throwing muses that sometimes hits the mark and sometimes misses, Sunny Border Blue is probably Kristin's only album to consistently excel alongside 2001's Hips and Makers..
un unknown classic and a real gem.

Kristin Hersh has now made an album which she can truly say is her's. Not that i'm saying her other album weren't "her's", but this is so honest, truthful and emotional that you cannot doubt it. I was privilaged to see her live recently, and the songs from this album which she played seemed to be the ones that she was most comfortable with.
She has the ability to condense her anger, frustration, love, fear and experiences into beautiful and incredibly emotional music. There are times when this album will hit you hard with such sadness and then others when it can sooth, sometimes even be uplifting.
A truly beautiful and honest album. A must-buy.
