Info for Hummingbird Girl

On the album, Franziska Günther’s frank voice and dynamic guitar blend with Peter Jack’s mellifluous fretless base lines, giving rise to lively song landscapes. The skillful compositions from these two authors shuttle freely between frolicsome joie de vivre and contemplation, they describe personal events and philosophize about love, life and the universe. In their chamber music-style songwriter-folk, these two artists amalgamate artistic bohemia with pragmatism.

Their spectrum of songs ranges from the fragile ballad “Angeline”, recorded with an acoustic guitar only, to “Grandma’s Waltz”, which is infused with the reverberations of Manfred Leuchter’s accordion, passing by the grooving-percussive “The Sun Goes Up”. In their arrangements, Chelsea Radio and co-producer Ian Melrose create other stimulating accents with the mandolin, banjo, lap steel guitar and tasteful percussion.

The idea for launching the duo arose during a festival in Mecklenburg, when Franziska discovered a five-string banjo backstage and started playing Joni Mitchell's “Chelsea Morning” on it. Peter spontaneously accompanied her on the fretless bass in typical Jaco Pastorius manner. In the meantime, that session engendered a perfectly coordinated duo, which, after countless concerts, has now released its first album. With “Hummingbird Girl”, these two have produced a wonderfully diverse and touching CD that will enchant you more and more with each new listening.
