After a plethora of solo- and group-gigs, Jeanette Hubert now finally releases her debut album 'On the Run'.
Comprising twelve original songs, it sees Hubert manifesting her passion for life, singing and performing. Topics range from finding love and keeping it alive through times of conflict and pain to the sheer joy of simply lying in the grass and waiting for happiness to arrive ('Waiting For The Rest'). Playing the guitar, for Hubert, is a way of looking inside and attuning herself to the world around her. Influences range from rock to jazz, while melodies are marked by a poignant pop appeal - always backed by a band composed of Malte Weberruss (guitar, electric bass, keyboards), Simone Bauer (double bass) Nicolai Ziel (drums) and her former duo partner Catrien Stremme, who also contributed the lyrics to three songs.
Opener 'Always Perfect' and pieces like 'Honeypie Baby' and 'Letters To The Moon' display Hubert's determination to remain optimistic in good times and bad. Hubert's interest in many decades of pop- and jazzculture are showing through on 'Bullet' or 'See Me' as well as guitar ballads 'True' and 'Waiting for the Rest', while pieces like Hammond-driven 'Freddy Song' or 'Mind My Garden' act as impressive testimonies to her timeless songwriting chops. 'On the Run' is an album which never reverts to cliché and kitsch for their own sake - but which isn't afraid of beauty, either.
