Live From Sun Studios: Amber Rubarth

10 Apr

The next installment of the Live from Sun Studios sessions is up and features Indie artist, Amber Rubarth.

While sort of an “anti-Grace Potter”, Amber is an eclectic mix of the Ditty Bops, Leon Redbone and a kinder, gentler Brandi Carlile with a hint of Norah Jones thrown in. Amber’s soothing acoustical style is pleasing to the ear and many of her songs are couched in obtuse humor. (Nobody here likes that.)

In the Sun Studio session, she is joined by Adam Levy of Norah Jones’ Handsome Band fame and Alex Wong on percussion. LERVE the whistlin’. Check her out. She’ll be releasing a new CD in May titled, New Green Lines, on Sounden Recordings. She’ll also be out on a U.S. Tour starting in May, after concluding a brief European Tour. This up and coming Indie warrants a further listen.

    She has a really interesting and unique quality to her voice. Definitely NOT your typical cookie-cutter musician. I like the Novacain song, but I couldn’t make it through all of Underground Angel.

    Brc, I concur! Her voice sits much better in the melody of Novacain. I like the song Underground Angel…I just kept wondering what an artist like Adele would do with it.

    I actually saw a clip of her just the other week. Talk about deja vu. It was a mellow little gem. I kinda liked it.

    I quite enjoyed Novocaine. And that has nothing to do with my recent oral surgery. I was digging her guitar playing. Having problems loading Underground Angel (YouTube has been sluggish lately), but I’ll check it out later.

    ivoryhut, I kinda liked it too – better than the others actually. Think might best appreciate her on a lazy summer evening with a drink of choice in hand. Here’s a video I ran across last night – Safe in the Sound

    thanks for the link!! Amber is quite good, and yes, different. More to come….probably a new GP on Monday! Oh, and there is a nice blues cut from Adam Levy up now.
