Product Description

Product Description

SHEA SEGER The May Street Project (2000 13-track enhanced CD album of bluesy pop backed with hip hop beats includes the singles Last Time and Clutch complete with lyric booklet picture sleeve)

Amazon.co.uk

Being born in Fort Worth Texas and growing up in Quitman, a Texan town of just 1,200, hasn't been wasted on Shea Seger. The moody 20-year-old is as close as the 21st century is going to get to a cowgirl. Sweet and girlie, with a southern states drawl and a liking for country blues guitar, she's not to be underestimated; her words are as sly and gritty as her voice, her observations as cutting as her melodies. Sheryl Crow for the jilted generation--dressing the desperate country girl in gripping melodies, hard-bitten attitude and contagious pop--the likes of "Walk On Rainbows" and single "Last Time" with their savage production of strings and dragging beats are more Bjork than Shania. The May Street Project is the sort of thing that gives country pop a good name. But it's her magical blend of tender campfire backdrops ("Shatterwall"), lo-fi break beats ("Clutch"), desert planes' hip-hop ("Blind Situation") and the Beck "two turntables and an acoustic" attitude ("May Street") that separates Shea's moanings from those of fellow down-beat femmes Apple, Morissette and Brooks; that and her gorgeously breathless voice. --Dan Gennoe

We turned up to the Sheffield City Hall on a wet and miserable Monday night to be enlivened and to see James. As is the way with these things, a support act has the job of warming the audience before the headline band appears on stage. Shea Seger. Right. Who was she, who are they I thought as the band began playing to a three-quarter empty venue. First off was Last Time, and this delicate, nymph like vocalist let out a strong, soulful voice from within her tiny frame. And along came the rest of the album tracks - Clutch, Shatterwall, I Love You Too Much, and Walk on Rainbows - gems, all. I'd never heard of Shea Seger, never heard any of the singles, but the performance weaved a spell. Whatever that certain unfathomable ingredient is, that X-Factor which propels a band to success, I think they have it. It looks like the their time is coming, something's in the air. Shea sang to row upon row of empty seats but put her heart into it - she was in a reverie, enjoying her own music, the resonance of each song and their lyrics was kept secret from us but was clearly real to her. Hair flowing and barefoot, a little sugary sweet maybe, but a star in the making nevertheless. Waiting in the Rain was next, and May Street - the audience sat arms folded, some yawned, most saw but didn't hear. After a gutsy, impressive display she had no reason to be humble, but - in a soft, southern American tone - said thanks for listening, I'm Shea Seger, enjoy James and have a good night. As she walked off stage you couldn't help thinking she's a girl going places, her stage presence promised much. The album, mastered and polished in studio, captures the thoroughly now sounds which illuminated a cold Sheffield night. Buy the album before everyone else does because it's destined to have air play a plenty.

Shea who? was my initial reaction when she came on stage supporting James at the Brixton Academy last year, but this album has been one of the finest purchases I have ever made. It is an album of remarkable diversity, but the one element that does shine through is her sultry, expressive voice, at times full of attitude or emotion, it is a voice that will grip you instantly. She fuses southern usa instrumental influences with alternatively hip hop (Blind Situation), thumpingly moody basslines (Clutch), synthetiser pop (I love you too much) and manages to convey a whole range of emotions with these very catchy tunes. The relief at not being with someone anymore (Twisted), her addiction to another person (Clutch), and the promise and hope she sees in love (Wasting the rain) - the way she delivers these varying emotions changes the pace of the album from one to the next and make this an album you will play from start to finish every time. This is a beautiful album, just beautiful.

Not sounding too dislike Nina Pearsons from the cardigans Shea (pronounced Shay) Seger proves that America can produce good solo female artists in amongst your Britney's and Christina's. This debut album is a mix of of guitar, hip-hop and 80's disco...well kind of. Opening track last time, for me the best track on the album kicks straight in with a sweeping orchestral backing and a great chorus: "If I wake up with you, it will be the last time...and if I still adore you, it will be the last time." It's a rare treat to find a beautiful female voice being used to good effect rather than going "e-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah" a la Britney. The good use of other singers, with hip-hop etc. is a nice touch and adds variety to the album. Comes highly recommended by me.

I bought this CD on a whim, as i do to my bank balances disdain, and I cannot help but boast my good fortune. Shea Seger's "the May Street Project" is a most beautiful album.
With a combination of gorgeous vocals and a fine balance of bassy-beated stories of love-gone-wrong (i love you too much) with acoustic filled splendours that conjur up any number of ideallistic texan landscapes to fill a geography book (walk on rainbows), the May Street Project pretty much covers the whole emotional spectrum.
Yeah, "Last Time" will be the popular single played on most radio stations, and "Clutch" will be the song for teen-heartbreak, but for those who just love to listen to the music of someone who must be a joy to know (with so much to say, Shea must be great to have a drink with!),or even just want to listen to something with substance and definite soul, then you could do no better at the moment by investing in this album.
Sheryl Crow you have competition, and it's Shea shaped.

I bought this album after seeing the video for "Last Time" on MTV. This is a really great album and Shea Seger is an artist of immense talent. The lyrics are sublime and all the music is very well arranged. I think "Last Time" and "Clutch" are the best songs on the album, but that's not to say that the other songs are at all average, far from it! "Clutch" is one of the best songs that I have heard in recent years and deserves special mention. The distorted bass line that runs throughout the song is perfect, the vocals are really catchy and what a voice! Buy it!
