Description

During the five years since her last album of original material, BettySoo zigzagged her way across the North American and European continents more than a few times. Mostly, she toured. Every other minute, she was flying to visit best friends in rehab, driving for days with friends whose family lives were crumbling, visiting mental hospitals, going to houses and cleaning kitchens and bathrooms when friends had no will left to do it themselves. As an insomniac and someone who understands depression from her own life-long struggle, maybe she was exactly where she and her friends needed her to be: in the thick of it, reminded of how fragile the balancing act can be for people like herself whose mental health isn't solid as a rock. And, perhaps, she did exactly what she needed to do: she wrote dozens of songs capturing those seemingly endless moments of grief, loneliness, and loss, and those fleeting moments of joy and love and she recorded twelve of those songs on her new album When We're Gone. Produced together with Brian Standefer at his studio in Buda, Texas, When We're Gone is an intimate look into private spaces in life. Wall-hung sinks ("The Things She Left Town With"), cluttered floorboards ("Josephine"), packed suitcases at the door ("Hold Tight"), and crumpled clothing at a young girl's feet ("Summertime") these are the furniture for the setting, but center stage is BettySoo's voice, her melodies, and the unmistakable texture of Brian's cello.
