Many Country singers will cite that they have had a variety of influences, but few can claim as many as Savannah Jaine – hailing from Florida via New York, Nashville, Chicago, Texas, Cruises, Abu Dhabi and Ibiza, Savannah now finds herself in Lancashire with guitarist Lee Meadows.
With her new single Chapel On The Hill you can detect that range of influence and experience. Whilst the DNA may be Country it certainly features a rocky edge, some pop, some outlaw country, and Spanish/gypsy style guitar (although played on Electric) and an ethereal, folksy set of backing vocals in the song. Other artistes can cross genres, but not normally within a single song!
Don’t be put off though! The song is far from a mish-mash of styles, rather it is a combination of them that come together to make a bouncy, up tempo and very enjoyable song, with a sing-along chorus even on first listen.
There is a sassy edge to the song and to the story in it. The guitar seems to punctuate her statements, this girl means action: “I’m gonna find me a brand new thrill” and “There’s a whole lot of fire left in me still”.
This girl is going to find her own life and she’s not afraid to try different paths, she will be true to herself.
You will be toe tapping throughout, her energy is infectious.
Could she be your new thrill?
Chapel On The Hill, the new single from Savannah Jaine, is available to stream and download from Friday 7 July
