For all my Marie Digby or Rachael Yamagata fans, Kate Earl will rock your socks off! This L.A. based artist is new on the scene with her alternative pop rock vibe. She perfectly captures the laid back California essence and incorporates it into her music style. After signing with Downtown Records, she released her new album “Stronger” in November 2012 and is conducting a nationwide tour! As I am a fan of her type of music genre, I decided to check this new artists’ album out! When first hearing her song “Melody”, I felt like it was going to be a similar rendition to Yael Naim “New Song”. Both songs start off with a piano intro and soft melodies and vocals. However, Kate definitely makes her voice more distinct and carries on the song to her own flow. Her tone and pitch just seem to flow with the melody and it gives her listeners a carefree, relaxing, yet preppy vibe! Kate shows her love for music through her songs and lets her emotions be revealed. You can tell that the artist connects with her music, sometimes the only things in life she needs are her “melodies”.
This new hard metal band compiled of Jeff Ament (Pearl Jam Bassist), Joseph Arthur, and Richard Stuverud is releasing their first debut album Acts on October 30th!
