Kate Grom is a singer/songwriter from Frenchtown, NJ. Kate released her debut album Heroine produced by two-time Grammy Award winning producer Stewart Lerman, earlier this year and released her single Whistle Cry in April.
Heroine is a gorgeous and comforting collection of consistently hauntingly beautiful tracks that relax the mind and transport you to a peaceful, safe haven and make the album easy to get lost in.
Each song has a delicate, tranquil and serene melody with calming harmonious vocals. Kate’s artistry has enabled her to blend the deepest roots of folk music with a traditional tone of country music and Americana, producing some of the most emotive, captivating and affecting music I have heard in a long time.
Something about Kate’s music has a hint of Cowboy Junkies, Mindy Smith and Aimee Mann not vocally but sonically. Kate’s voice is soothing to the soul and pleasing to the ears. Whilst most of the songs are down tempo, there are a couple that are more mid tempo with a positive beat but up tempo isn’t always necessary especially in albums such as this.
This album is for lovers of music, especially the female voice and for those who love acoustic driven music with pedal steel guitar, chilling sounds. There are no bad songs and each track flows perfectly into the next, I haven’t felt this relaxed in a long time.
Heroine is a ‘must-have’ album and should be championed and appreciated.
