RRREEVVIIEEWW + One To Watch / Odetta Hartman / BARK

Kind words all the way from ENGLAND !!

" ‘Cowboy soul’ is quite a maligned genre wouldn’t you say? Well here’s an artist (and the only artist) to be at the forefront of it known as Odetta Hartman.

The New York-based 25 year old singer-songwriter who plays violin, guitar and mandolin mixes old school music genres such as folk and jazz to create her own contemporary genre, the aforementioned cowboy soul.

An interesting multi-instrumentalist with great vocal range and a full Mardi Gras band behind her means a good time for your ears. Check it out for yourself!”

Odetta Hartman’s Timeless Music

These kind words made my jaw drop - he describes the sound of COWBOY SOUL better than I could, and I’m honored by the truly astute comparisons to some of my favorite lady singers! <3 

"Odetta Hartman serves up four songs here, which sound like they came mostly from the golden age of Tin Pan Alley and the waning days of Vaudeville, and brother, I could listen to her wail on about her woes all day long.

Using this as her platform, Odetta’s voice comes in from a near forgotten part of the last century, with occasional shades of Memphis Minnie and a less brassy Ma Rainey. That she should even know these references means Hartman is worthy of at least casual worship.”

Thanks to The Wild Magazine for helping to celebrate the brand new release, BARK !!!

Although Bark, the new EP from rising artist Odetta Hartman, stands on classic folk footing, it’s textured by a breadth of genres. The 25-year-old’s six-piece band, complete with string and horn sections (Odetta usually wields a mandolin), culls sounds from soul, blues, choral, ragtime, country, bluegrass, even tribal. It seems, refreshingly, that the only sound the band doesn’t cover is electronic.

GIDDY VIBES !!!

"The next moment, Odetta Hartman, a young woman toting a banjo, would pluck with folky precision, accompanied by her voice that blared indie-soul, belting high notes that pierced my heart with a charming edge. ….

This is the direction I want music to go.
I want to see more musicians getting lost in their music like Odetta and Chaz did that night. It is one thing for an artist to connect with the audience but it takes transcendence for one to reach nirvana while on that stage, spiritually blacking out before a live audience like the impassioned performances of Woodstock ’69 from the likes of Santana, Jimi Hendrix, or Hip-Hop Gods like Eminem and Rakim. That is what we need: game changers.”
