TTBA June Album of the Month

TTBA June Album of the Month

The Turn The Beat Around programme Album of the Month for June 2018 is the 21st album from singer-songwriter Joan Armatrading and it is called Not Far Away.

“I write,” says Joan Armatrading, “because I love it.”

Joan Armatrading is an artist who has always stayed true to herself and love, as another famous person once wrote, is not love if alters when it alteration finds.

Grounded in her music and confident in her abilities, Joan has never buckled to current trends and genres in over four decades of superlative music-making. ‘Influential’ and ‘pioneering’ are just two of the epithets that have been rightly attributed to her.

In 2018 Joan Armatrading re-signed to BMG. Her first album for the label is the 10 track ‘Not Too Far Away’, released just a few weeks ago.

Joan writes, produces, arranges and, again, plays all the instruments. A deeply personal album that is both intense, poignant and, at times, positively jaunty, it gets straight to the heart of things. The songs are a catalogue of emotion that is as engaging, direct and relevant as it is individual. No prevarication on this album.

‘Not Too Far Away’ is a great testament to a woman who has gone where no British female artist has gone before and who is not afraid to tell it how she sees it.

It is a strong and telling statement from one of the best loved, most enduring and, unquestionably, accomplished artists working today.

Turn The Beat Around with Ian Arbuckle, Wednesdays 8.00-10.00pm; repeated Saturday afternoons 3.00-5.00pm plus Catch Up anytime.
