Gin Wigmore delves into a different sound for her third studio album, ‘Blood To Bone.’ The new album is proof she’s shed the metaphorical blood, sweat and tears to take us on a new musical ride, one that’s underpinned by a thirst for a new groove, and the end result is her most powerful release to date.
The 29-year-old New Zealand-born singer/songwriter (who now lives in Los Angeles) takes her trademark rock and blues sound, and this time around also explores elements of electronica as well as a heavier feel.
‘Blood To Bone’ was recorded in Los Angeles with various songwriters including Charlie Andrew (Alt-J, Matt Corby & Laurel Collective), internationally renowned songwriter and producer Stuart Crichton, and Swedish musician and producer Joakim Ahlund — who also worked with Chrissie Hynde on last year’s debut solo album ‘Stockholm.’
Wigmore steps away from her comfort zone to create an album loaded with empassioned intent. For her, it’s an album of many firsts — she steps behind the piano, stretches her voice into falsetto, manages all the backing vocals on the album and stepped into the role of co-producer.
