Can't Go Back (CD)
Release Date: 31/08/2012
Tanita Tikaram, multi-million selling British singer songwriter, who shot to fame with her award winning album 'Ancient Heart' in 1988, featuring hit songs 'Twist In My Sobriety' and 'Good Tradition', returns with her seventh studio album 'Cant Go Back'.
The album features some of America's most exciting modern soul musicians, and was lovingly crafted by producer Paul Bryan (Aimee Mann, Grant Lee Phillips, Nina Nastasia) at Sound Factory in Los Angeles.
The musicians included Bryan himself as well as keyboardist Keefus Ciancia (B.B. King, T.Bone Burnett, Elton John, Everlast), Ray LaMontagne's drummer Jay Bellerose and long term friend and guitarist Mark Creswell. Guest vocals come from American folk singer songwriter Grant Lee Phillips.
Tikaram was inspired by her new found love of Americana, by the union of country and soul by Motown and Chess, and by singers such as Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Dusty Springfield, Don Williams, Paul Simon and the long-lost Marie Knight. It proved to be a musical coming home for Münster-born (Germany), Basingstoke-raised (UK) daughter of Fijian/Malaysian parents. The finished result is a warm, uplifting convergence of Tanita's fabulously sensual voice with a live soul groove.
