“Bethel Steele presents Of “Love & Whiskey” with a deep and inspired approach” -Remo Ricaldone, reviewer for www.bcmai.it, www.lonestartime.com and www.planetcountry.it Italy
“Of Love & Whiskey” Bethel Steele‘s highly anticipated sophomore release debuted at #17 on Folk DJ Radio Charts for Top Albums and Songs. Steele double charted, making her stand on the Roots Music MA State chart and securing #33 for Top 50 Folk Albums.
An intimate journey of storytelling, hard truths and life experience, “Of Love & Whiskey” has continually gained momentum, reaching audiences across the globe. The most played cuts from Steele’s current project are “Farm”, “Seasons”, “Sunrise”, “Whiskey” and “Base“. At times edgy, at times tenderly expressive, Steele has established herself as an artist to be heard!
“Of Love and Whiskey” is an introspective and tender exploration of the human condition; a 10-song effort that delves into love’s adventures, the journey of recovery and self-reflection, and our capacity to find hope in unexpected places.
Produced by Neale Eckstein and Jagoda; engineered and mixed at Fox Run Studio, the production of “Of Love & Whiskey” ranges from Bethel’s vocal and guitar (With Age) to fully produced songs backed by seasoned performers (Sunrise, The Farm, Blue Skies), but every song on the album shares an intimate story with the listener. Even the edgier numbers, like those that tackle the subject of addiction (Hard Love, Whiskey), have a certain heartfelt conviction and sincerity about them.
The record as a whole is a journey!
