is the fifth studio album by Beth Hart
, released in 2010. Hart worked with Danish producer Rune Westberg
, who had already worked on Beth's previous albums 37 Days
and Leave the Light On
. Westberg challenged Hart not to "scream with animal savagery"
, not to rely on the power of her voice but rather on the power of emotions. This makes My California
a unique album in Hart's discography, with a constancy throughout the tracks that the fans were not used to with the previous albums.
The European limited edition features an additional acoustic bonus track, "Oh Me Oh My".
