‘Drowning Me’ on Unjammed, released 3/7/13:
‘On the Spot” EPK released May of 2012:
Some of the players on her 6th record “On the Spot” were Eastwood Studio’s engineer and owner, Eric Fritsch (electric guitar), Jason Fitz (fiddle/keys player from The Band Perry), Nick Buda and Tim Marks (Taylor Swift’s drummer and bassist), Michael Webb (keys for LeAnn Rimes, John Fogerty, Coco), Steve Bowman (drummer for Counting Crows), James Haggerty (Autumn Defense’s bass player), Derek Wells (electric guitar for Josh Turner) and co-producer Jim Reilley (New Dylans) on high string acoustic guitar.
AJ wrote all the music, melodies and lyrics to ‘On The Spot,’ debuts her drumming, Mellotron and Micro Korg skills on 2 tracks and played acoustic guitar on each song. Curious to know where the title “On The Spot” came from? Just ask AJ at the next show or join the Blue Crew Newsletter to find out!
Q: Are these songs anything like the 10 from “Here’s to Change?”
A: Yes and no. Both groupings of songs are comprised of a mixture of many genres, acoustic and full band, however for On The Spot, we recorded more full band, upbeat tracks than Here’s To Change. Again, though, we’re only done with 10 out of 13. The last 3 will be somewhat acoustic.
Both could be considered “multi-genred,” but On The Spot leans heavy on the pop/country side with contemporary singer/songwriter influences. Here’s To Change is mainly pop, but it’s touches on many genres. It’s been reviewed as a “pop/country” album, which I disagree with. I mean just because ‘Dear Life’ has a banjo and mandolin in it doesn’t make the album country. Both sneak in tidbits of light rock, blues and jazz. The best way to describe On The Spot: Think if Sara Bareilles, Shakira, Katy Perry, Alanis Morrisette, Dido, Jewel, Alison Krauss, Carrie Underwood, Brandi Carlile and Sarah McLachlan had a love child. That’s the direction we went in. “It’s rootsy, groovy and authentic, with each individual song telling it’s own story,” says co-producer Jim Reilley. “This record doesn’t have just one sound and definitely not just one genre. You’ll be able to feel the music with more vocal and less production.”

“Don’t Fight the Love,” which can be heard by clicking here!
They say Nashville will either make you or break you. It has more than made me. I haven’t been more inspired in my entire life! January 2013 marked my 9th year in the business and it was only summer of 2012, when I figured out who I was as an artist. While I seem to write in every genre there is, I am and always have been, drawn to the Sara Bareilles, Adele, Joss Stone, Christina Aguilara styles. I finally have found my voice and am able to still keep my story telling style of writing. I’m continually compared to Joan Baez and Alanis Morissette, which are incredible compliments! I’m just not sure I agree completely. If I’m forced to “describe” my style, or “sounding like” anyone, my response is always “Sara Bareilles on guitar,” but I don’t mind admitting that I believe I sound like no one else. Just me, and I think you will get a chance to hear that in these new recordings.Read More
