ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Boasting a strong, impassioned vocal delivery, subtle phrasing, impeccable timing, swinging tunes and revelatory, carefully honed lyrics, Sutlive and her sterling crew glide through 10 original tracks which include aching ballads, mid-tempo folk- and country-rockers, and a pair of shape-shifting reveries ("Bay Love" and the closing "Time To Go Home") which would nestle quite comfortably on Van Morrison's classic "Astral Weeks."
-Jim Musser's Music Beat

Recorded and produced in Iowa City, Iowa, "One bedroom apartment" is the first full-length album by singer-songwriter Becca Sutlive, now a resident of San Francisco. After five years of playing solo, Sutlive teamed up with somewhat of an all-star list of Iowa musicians, including Dave Zollo, Randy Davis and Marty Letz, to record an album straight from the heart.
With influences ranging from Lucinda Williams and Johnny Cash to Liz Phair and Courtney Love, Sutlive combines pure rock with an alt-country flare. The real gem here is a great set of pipes and a talented young songwriter backed by a rock-solid band. Produced by Patrick Brickel and released on Sam Knutson's Mudfence music. Pick up a copy today!

Becca Sutlive
'One Bedroom Apartment'
Mudfence Music

Singer/songwriter Becca Sutlive cut her musical teeth at various local venues over the past several years, and before she headed west to exercise her prodigious gifts in the Bay Area, she cut this most impressive debut disc with a pan-genre collection of some of Iowa City's finest roots musicians.
Boasting a strong, impassioned vocal delivery, subtle phrasing, impeccable timing, swinging tunes and revelatory, carefully honed lyrics, Sutlive and her sterling crew glide through 10 original tracks which include aching ballads, mid-tempo folk- and country-rockers, and a pair of shape-shifting reveries ("Bay Love" and the closing "Time To Go Home") which would nestle quite comfortably on Van Morrison's classic "Astral Weeks."
Beautifully recorded, mixed and mastered by Patrick Brickel at PZM Studios, "One Bedroom Apartment" features a core band of Sutlive, guitarist Randy Davis, bassist/guitarist Brickel and drummer James Robinson. Elegant textures are provided by Will Jennings (harmonica), Joe Peterson (mandolin), Dave Zollo (keyboards), Nathan Basinger (organ), Marty Letz (pedal steel) and Sam Knutson (vocal harmony).
Released this week on Knutson's Mudfence imprint, "One Bedroom Apartment" is a wall-to-wall solid sender, and even rent control couldn't keep this meteoric talent from going through the roof.

Jim Musser's Music Beat column appears in Info to GO! every Thursday. You can reach him by writing to 1100 Arthur St. B5, Iowa City, Iowa 52240-6606, calling 354-6123, or e-mailing jmussa@aol.com.

Excellent
This CD is really top shelf. Beautiful songwriting, singing, and musicianship across the board.

Jo

Beautiful voice; excellent songwriting
One Bedroom Apartment is a really enjoyable cd. Becca Sutlive has a lovely expressive voice and has written some very impressive songs. I especially liked the title track, Blind Faith and Just Too Much. Definately worth your time.

David Ripper

Sophisticated, down-to-earth, sexy warm music.
It's very sophisticated music for a debut from the hinterlands. The songs reward repeated listenings, the voice is warm and sexy (as opposed to sexy cool), and the music cooks. The album is sweet but not sentimental, intelligent but never pretentious; it's down-to-earth real, but it can take you somewhere else.

I bought One Bedroom Apartment on spec. After numerous plays, I am wondering why I had not heard of Becca Sutlive before. An album to make you think.

Phil Wise

Great songwriting ability and musicianship
Having know Becca for some time, I did not fully appreciate her songwriting ability and musicianship until "One Bedroom Apartment." Her take on life is smart and perceptive beyond her years. Her ability to move between musical genres makes the disc a treat to hear. I anxiously await her next contribution.

Greg Carrier

Outstanding debut
One Bedroom Apartment is an excellent debut by Becca Sutlive. The songs are very good, and the whole thing rocks a little more than I expected. I'm looking foward to seeing where her considerable talent leads her next. Recommended.
