Alice Russell: Hurry On Now

Con una educación musical heredada de sus padres, la británica Alice Russell es una cantante de ricas cualidades vocales con influencias de clásicos como Chaka Khan, Aretha Franklin o Jill scott.
En sus comienzos artísticos colaboró con grupos como Quantic, The Quantic Soul Orchestra o Bah Samba, participando tambien en la faceta de composición. Sonidos jazz, soul o el funk forman parte de su repertorio, donde no falta la plasticidad y riqueza de su portentosa voz, envolvente y llena de un soul vivo, capaz de dejarte embobado sólo con escuchar sus primeras notas. Asi lo podemos comprobar en el tema "Hurry On Now" de su primer trabajo en solitario, Under The Munka Moon(2004), bajo la producción de TM Juke -habitual en muchos de los temas de Alice- conduciéndote sin frenos a su cosmos musical.

Letra

Now my road has turned to tracks,
Stones to pebbles, see them roll away.
My wandering troubles need not break my back,
Mmm, sorrow is the price I pay.

I sing my sorrows to the morning; I speak them to the night.
You best believe I'll keep singing until I make my wrongs so right.
Devil said, a pity for your troubles to take your tired old soul?
So you know you got to go.

Hurry, to catch the morning.
You got to hurry on now,
In the night.
I would heed my sorrow.
And it knows, won't be long now?
Hurry.

Now with blind hands, I crawl this lonely place,
As my dry tears fall and roll away.
I can't see troubles as they dance behind my back,
Ooo, sorrow is my soul to slay.

He stole my sorrows from the morning; he ripped them from the night.
And you best believe I'll keep singing to make my wrongs so right.
Devil took a pity of my troubles; he holds my tired old soul
So I know I got to go?

Hurry, to catch the morning.
I got to hurry on now,
In the night.
I would heed my sorrow.
Now I know, won't be long now?
Hurry.
