Label: Kat Robeeshow
You may know Kat Robichaud from being a finalist on Season 5 of The Voice, but don’t let that scare you away – this is nothing like your typical reality show contestant album. Piano based rock with attitude – kind of a cabaret punk sound similar to Amanda Palmer/the Dresden Dolls, but with more powerful vocals. Many of the lyrics have a message, like “Definition of Pretty” and “The Apple Pie & The Knife” which deal with challenges that women face in our society. In one song, she delivers the vocals in the manner of a circus ringmaster. It’s a fun album, though it will appeal to some people more than others.
