All Inside Out
Threatened commercial manipulation from the majors and the fast changing recording industry gave Saville the incentive and opportunity to bring this new album together. The genre; if it's really that important, you will have to decide for yourself. Safe Pop' this is not, perhaps a purposeful mongrel of jazz & experimental. Repeated listening to the carefully balanced production from Clark / Wilson of the highly emotive aural collage will reveal Saville's subtle secrets as Harri' shares all from the inside out. "Passionate pensive lyrics written from inner visions and outer experiences taking the listener through a musical journey of restrained instrumentation and intelligent arrangement topped with her thoughtful smoky vocals." "Competent relaxed and confidently assured. A lovely vocal orientation of blended soul, blues, jazz and funk delivered with subtle passion" ALL INSIDE OUT - Preface This new album is both autobiographical and a result of trying to write an audible picture for those that wish to look more closely than just listening to good music. I have used broad strokes of dark, heart-felt sadness, primary coloured highlights of joy and humour, pastel shades of sentimental love, passion and romance. The canvas is deeply personal and emotional full of intimate samples of my life and loves, all composed, arranged and then recorded in this album. I am not a young 'barely out of teens' artist, I am a maturing woman with a developing inner growth and deep personal awareness. My music is born out of digested emotions, from staring into my own soul as well as humanity and being all the more wise for it. Life's experiences have sometimes deeply wounded and damaged me, but this unique perspective offers an emotional intensity that I can share in my music. Equally love and happiness is a giddy wonder that I can convey both lyrically and melodically. John (Clark) my partner is crucial in my life and music; he makes it better than good. We felt the intention of this new project seemed self indulgent & somewhat ambitious as we peeked out from our steady careers as session musicians, safely regurgitating other musician's work. We agreed we had both hidden behind our musical facades for long enough. At last we are liberated by our own creativity, though as a result rather tentative and have nothing in the way of savings left. We had to search high & low to find the right musicians that shared our passion and eclectic musical taste. We are totally fanatical about the mood of our music and finding naturally empathic players that instinctively knew how to portray subtle ambience was a challenge. It's exceptional to find a musician that can truly understand & play more than one style with fluency, skill & authenticity, finding five others was no less than a miracle. I am incredibly proud of them all. Saville brings everything from tinges of jazz to splashes of techno & with this album boundaries of style seemed to be little but restricting & may have ended up being nothing other than a blanket covering the passionate & revealing objective. 'All Inside Out' is based on sharing experiences & thoughts; as a result it's hardly surprising it's varied.
