– Mexican Overdrive –
Just as a truck in neutral, the “Mexican Overdrive” downhill is getting faster and faster, Jolina Carl is once again powerfully picking up speed with her new album. With inspiring musical diversity, she continues in the fast lane with the album “Mexican Overdrive”.
Jolina Carl releases her fifth studio album with 14 new songs, most of which she wrote herself. She was assisted by the British songwriter and A&R legend Richard Rogers and Bernd Ege, who was already a writer on her last album. The songs have a very traditional touch, but this time she surprises with four songs written by Tobias Schnell with
a strong pinch of New Country. Jolina Carl also presents the Patsy Cline classic “She’s Got You” in a modern guise and finishes off with an acoustic version of “I Wanna Go”, giving an emotionally intimate insight into the story of a man who was always drawn to the world, but who realizes in his twilight years how beautiful it is at home. Jolina Carl offers a stylistic range on her new album, from Tex Mex and funky rhythms to traditional country.
With “Mexican Overdrive” she shows a very great musical and vocal flexibility. She tells stories about women who talk too much and too loud, defines a very precious friendship, takes up the topic “Domestic Violence” in a socially critical way and gives courage to live personal dreams.
Most of the album was recorded in Nashville and produced by Grammy-nominated Thomm Jutz at his TJ Tunes Studio. The tracks on „Mexican Overdrive“ were recorded by musicians from the top ranks of Nashville session cracks, such as Tammy Rogers, Scotty Sanders, Jeff Taylor and Pat Bergeson, who have worked with Reba McEntire, Willie Nelson, Ricky Skaggs, Alan Jackson and Tommy Emmanuel, among others. The New Country songs were produced by Tobias Schnell at SES Studio in Hamburg.
With „Mexican Overdrive“ Jolina Carl gives powerful gas and shows again that she continues to progress on the way up.
The release of “Mexican Overdrive” is on 23rd July 2021 and can be ordered by now.
