Gena Rose Bruce‘s stunning debut album Can’t Make You Love Me is out now via Dot Dash Recordings.
There's a vibrant youthfulness and deep maturity that underpins Bruce’s songwriting, which allows Can’t Make You Love Me to swing effortlessly between earnest introspection and cool detachment with utter sincerity. Bruce’s vocals drive this album; a stirring force amidst the pulsing rhythms, echoes of Mazzy Star and Lynchian undertones. Add to this the masterful restraint in the arrangements and you have an album that is both instantly timeless and unmistakably contemporary.
The album was produced by Tim Harvey (Teeth & Tongue, Lisa Mitchell) and features guitar/bass contributions by Jade Imagine. Audiences got their first glimpse of the record through Bruce's stellar singles 'Angel Face', 'Rearview' and 'The Way You Make Love'.
Can’t Make You Love Me is an intoxicating ride through love, lust, self-destruction and surrender.
