'Here We Go 1, 2, 3' is Heidi Talbot's fifth solo album. Produced by musical partner and husband, John McCusker, (himself recently the recent recipient of the Good Tradition honour at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards) Heidi's new album crosses the ages, jumps into the unknown, traverses oceans and musical styles – from folk, through Americana, to classic pop, and back again…
Eight-year-old Heidi is orphaned and her selfish maternal Aunt Dete takes her to the mountains to live with Adolph Kramer, her grumpy, old, outcast, survivalist paternal grandfather.
The classic story of Heidi takes on a heartfelt new dimension on Disney DVD. The dispossessed orphan who wants only to love and be loved ends up charming her embittered grandfather and falling in love with the beautiful mountain he calls home. Heidi is soon uprooted and sent to Frankfurt where she befriends a young girl confined to a wheelchair. But the big city drains Heidi’s spirit, and she must struggle with her memory of life on the Alps. In time, she follows her heart and finds a miracle. Starring Jason Robards and Jane Seymour, Heidi is a triumph of love, friendship and forgiveness that will capture everyone’s heart.
Heidi Berry may claim her influences are Billie Holiday and Chrissie Hynde, but the British singer/songwriter's hushed, introspective music is closer to Nick Drake, Sarah McLachlan, and especially Beth Orton than anything the Pretenders have ever laid to tape. That said, anyone interested in her haunted folk 'n' country crooning should look to the material on her first anthology, Pomegranate, which wonderfully sums up Berry's career to date. With songs spanning Berry's handful of releases, the album also includes demos, a Bob Mould cover ("Up in the Air"), enhanced videos, and artist-penned stories for each song. Impeccably sequenced, the 14 tracks balance Berry's pessimistic and upbeat moments, and the resulting compilation is a must-have for fans of her late-night lullabies.
