The charm and charisma of Back To Me, the new album from sultry songstress Shana Halligan for Plug Research, is an exploration of human sensuality told through songs of romance, heartache and personal reflection. Adding that perfectly sealed kiss of mystique, pain and hope, Halligan’s uniquely tortured voice brings back the art of classic vocal allure mixed with modern-day, moody production.
Picture this: a Prohibition Era speakeasy in 1920s America backed by a futuristic electronic jazz band. Cutting through a haze of thick cigar smoke and the clamor of clinking martini glasses, Halligan stands tall and confident. All eyes are on her as she sashays across the stage. All ears are in tune as she lets her innermost emotions sink to the deepest pits of the soul. Her voice carries the vintage appeal of emotive jazz crooners, the ferocity and freedom of a modern woman in charge of her artistic destiny, and the vigor of a performer fully realizing her creative zenith.
It’s a force all unique to Halligan and perfected on her latest accomplishment, Back To Me.
