Reviews of Ruth Hammond

 

17/02/2006 Straight No Chaser Magazine

Straight No Chaser Magazine Summer 2002 edition

"HAMMOND POWER A new voice from the west country with home grown grooves and a down to earth perspective. The sax isn't enough for Ruth Hammond, after coming runner up in the 1998 Young Jazz Musician of the year and touring the world as a session player she has put her horn aside to play her name sake (the organ) and sing over her own groove. Ruth's warm laid back personality comes across on every self crafted song on her debut album 'All the good things'. Some of her songwriting reaches towards uplifting gospel, such as the highlight of the album 'Another Day Gone'. For the most part her music is tight, home baked funk from the heartlands of Bristol. It's a personal effort - she recorded it and put it out herself on Tenterhook Records."

 

17/02/2006 The Singer Magazine

By Antonia Couling (The Singer Magazine) August/September 2002 edition

"Ruth Hammond's debut CD, All the Good Things, on Tenterhook Records is an extremely listenable recording. The production is very interesting with some nice play on effects on the voice without overdoing it. Hammond has a very individual sound to her vocals with a good range, well-placed voice, and is completely non-imitational - rare these days. She also plays sax, Hammond organ and Fender Rhodes on the CD, as well as writing the material. There is a touch of Scritti Politti about her lyric rhythms and she proves herself a very competent songwriter in a cool funk groove style. Watch out for gigs coming your way".
