Background:

Singer Arabella Harrison was formerly in Jejune. She currently performs and records solo, as well as with Bartenders Bible.

At first sight of Arabella Harrison sitting up on stage you see beauty; when she opens her mouth, you hear it. Although she has been involved with an array of bands and musicians over the years, this demure Hawaiian born and bred lady has all it takes to stand on her own. She creates perfect musical potions, with a dash of romance, rock and country. Whether you're someone who's had a heart broken, broken a heart, embraced change or run like hell from it, Arabella Harrison finds the common thread of heartache and hope within us all.

The five track, self-titled EP along with MP3s and downloads at MySpace comprise a gorgeous collection of modern yet timeless songs. Her defining elegant twang and bittersweet harmonies in "Don't Forget Me When I'm Gone" can make the lonely lonelier: "For six long days I had you by my side/ On the seventh day I sat alone and cried/ Without you here it's so lonely/ I miss being your one and only." The heartaching harmonic bellows introducing "Come Back Soon" vibrate the hard chord of love and loss. Performing live, Arabella sings with passion, truth, and a certain vulnerability -- "I've got this feeling, if you leave I ain't never gonna see you again, so baby don't hurry, stay," -- that stirs raw emotion and exudes the kind of sorrow only spoiled love can create. Each line and every melody expose the stories and secrets you might find in her personal diary.

Her songs are charged with the kind of hurt and desperation even Patsy Cline could attest to, and her delivery seems to only twist the knife harder. Luckily broken hearts mend, time ceases to stand still, and karma catches up with the false-hearted. With never-ending life material and a collection of blank canvases waiting to be filled, we can expect much more to come in the ways and words of this local favorite. Keep all senses locked and loaded for more love-struck and love-sick alt country ballads from none other than Arabella Harrison.
