Summary

The Beauty Room return with their second album following on from their self-titled 2006 debut on Peacefrog Records. Recorded in LA and London the record updates and hybridizes folk, soul, RnB and soft rock of the late-60s and early-70s. World famous techno/electronica DJ and producer Kirk Degiorgio re-unites with vocalist Jinadu on a deeply musical record channelling the likes of the Doobie Brothers, David Crosby and Brian Wilson with a fresh sound all their own.

'Beauty Room II' was recorded at Sunset Sound - LA, British Grove - UK, Olympic Studios - UK and Studio Heuvellaan - Holland using the best session musicians including Chris Whitten (Johnny Cash, Paul McCartney, Dire Straits), Rob Harris (Jamiroquai), Brian Bromberg (Elvis Costello, Herbie Hancock) and engineered by Grammy-winning producer Peter Henderson (Supertramp, Frank Zappa). Perhaps the most exciting addition to the follow up is the incredible string arrangements of Paul Buckmaster (Elton John, David Bowie, Rolling Stones), which were recorded with the Metropole Symphony Orchestra in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

Singer Jinadu and producer Kirk Degiorgio first collaborated on the As One album 21st Century Soul (Ubiquity) in 2001. Both have worked mainly in the electronic genre recording for a wide range of labels from Mo Wax to Bitches Brew and Far Out. The Beauty Room came about through continued collaboration, with Degiorgio sending Jinadu sketches with increasingly unusual progressions. Jinadu enhanced with catchy melodies, hooks and layers of rich harmonies. The pair has returned to the studio to write and record the follow up to the acclaimed first album, which continues to draw on the Golden Age 60s/70s West Coast influences of their debut, whilst setting the songs in utterly modern productions.

Combining traditional craftsmanship and modern electronics, it stands uniquely alone, there's timeless urban sophistication alongside a strong cerebral groove reminiscent of Steely Dan. What The Beauty Room achieve here is a similar blend of sharp-creased strut and spiritual meditation, all of it laced with plenty of that most essential yet indefinable alchemical element, soul.

Fans of singer/songwriters such as Joni Mitchell, Neil Young and the West-Coast scene will revel in the down tempo eloquence. Beauty Room II is Lush, romantic Rotary Connection type psychedelic soul beautiful played, sung and produced. Warm, human and spaciously beautiful, The Beauty Room will take you on a journey past wonderfully familiar landmarks to a place you've never quite been before.
