All I Can Provide

An ad in the Personals for Clara Hill’s All I Can Provide: Album by singer from Berlin, Germany seeks open minded listeners for a mix of dance, jazz, house, pop, and electronic music. I am the second album by Ms. Hill; Restless Times was her debut.  It’s not easy being a “follow-up”, especially to an album as well-received as Restless, but I do my best to keep you guessing. On your first listen, you won’t be expecting the quiet ambience of a ballad like “Endlessly” in contrast to a club-friendly number like “Paper Chase”.  I’ll get you dancing to “Just Paradise”, with groovy guitar licks and Ms. Hill’s higher register, and the off-center swagger of “Just Let Me Know”. Plus, guests like Vikter Duplaix, Charles Webster, Volker Meitz, and King Britt help me entertain you. You must know that I tend to repeat myself (“Run”) and sometimes I carry an idea longer than I should (“What For”), but when I’m hitting my stride (“Did I Do Wrong”), you will adore me. Is that arrogant of me? I hope not, because I’m the type of album you’ll share with your friends precisely because I’m fun and I don’t take myself too seriously.
