Rachael Kane and Benjamin Hurt are a musical constellation made in heaven. The couple come together for the first time as a band to deliver an album that is magnificently expansive and reflects the power of the universe. Exquisitely spacious, yet sharp and funky, Alchemy is the perfect balance of deeply gorgeous, tender ballads and luscious dance floor worthy anthems.
The title track Alchemy brings awareness to the big picture of energetic responsibility in our world and how we affect each other and our environment by how live, "Do you ever contemplate that every thought and every move that we make, could collectively contribute to an earthquake."
Funky Fabulous is a piece of dance floor heaven, with a deliciously inspiring groove and lyrics that will bring out the inner funky in every one. In The Woman Is of the Universe we get to feel the inner wisdom, grace and sacredness that is innate to all women.
In Full Bloom is the first full length album by Rachael Kane since she began recording with her producer husband Benjamin Hurt. It marks an evolutionary shift in her approach to making music as inspired by the work of philosopher and author Serge Benhayon and Glorious Music producer and artist Michael Benhayon. A layered and multi-dimensional offering Rachael Kane's album is imbued not only with the amazing depth and maturity of her sound but is equally considered in it's energetic quality and the effect this has on the listener. A rich and varied rock/pop album Rachael's voice is divine in it's sweetness and yet full of power and strength.
Album Review - By Tina Kopa
Melbourne based singer songwriter Rachael Kane is gracing the airwaves once again with new album In Full Bloom, a collection of beautifully crafted tracks that move from catchy guitar/synth pop tunes, to sexy, funky, power grooves and delicate, spacious ballads – all held together as warm invitations to stop and ponder lifes’ big questions.
From the opening track ‘My Love, you were right here all along’ you get a sense of a woman who knows who she is and is claiming it big time.. ”I have to let all this beauty inside me show, there’s no way I could ever hold it back”.
This theme is consistent throughout the album, stepped up in 'Powerhouse', a sassy anthem delivered with crystal clear, unadorned vocals that present self-love and appreciation as the ingredients of a strong and sexy woman. A cheeky little 'ooh' backing vocal will have you looking for it after the first time and singing along.
Rachael’s ability to have delicacy and power sit so equally and abundantly in this record is striking. When listening to 'How Beautiful You Are' and 'It's Possible', Rachaels' voice wraps around, caresses, and touches you gently. Supported by spacious, carefully considered production, no sound competes or crowds for attention which, unusual in contemporary pop records, leaves space for you, the listener, to settle in and be with each song.
A collaboration with Rachaels’ husband Ben Hurt, the couple, played and produced In Full Bloom from their home studio before work each day. Picture this… the dark quiet of early morning, bass lines recorded in cosy dressing gowns, a slippered foot tapping out the groove to a guitar riff, and the big family dog laying at Rachaels’ feet while she records vocals, all over steaming cups of tea and before sunrise, how deliciously un-rock….
In Full Bloom is a truly beautiful record and lives up to its album title, in the full, claimed, and open offering that it is. The first listen you’re curious, the second, you’re paying close attention, every listen after that, you’re in love!
The ground breakingly beautiful Girl to Woman song is available now as a Single. Includes bonus track I Am So Inspired By You.
