Katrin: Frail to Fearless

This young lady by the name of Katrin is a Boston-based singer/songwriter. Frail to Fearless was three years in the making and is her fourth self-released album.

When working on this review, my son looked at me with a question mark in his face while seeing the pictures on the album. He asked me: "since when are you listening this type of music?" I've read on more than one occasion that there was something about a woman and a guitar and Karin is a beautiful example of this saying. On this brand new release, Karin has composed nine new tracks and has given us the pleasure to hear a cover of Led Zeppelin's "That's the Way". Her style is somewhat reminiscent to Suzanne Vega, but with a slightly rougher edge. Her voice bears a bit of this urban feel; nonetheless the vocals are very pleasant, down to earth and coming from a well-grounded artist. She delivers, through her songs, intimate images and reflections taken from her own personal life. She has chosen the acoustic guitar to musically express her emotions. Those exquisite tonalities are gracing every single composition, to my selfish pleasure, of course. This is not really a folk type of album though. She even considers herself as "not just a singer-songwriter, being too edgy for that". She found her inspiration from soul, blues, rock and rhythm blues. Although there are only good songs to be heard on this disc, I have a weak spots for a certain number of them. Opening track, "Home" really sets the mood for the album. The casual and laid back vocals coupled with the cool acoustic playing make "Ivy" a very pleasant tune for my ears. The bluesy number 8, "Dreams", not only adds harmonica, but includes a great acoustic solo and a touch of organ as well.

Frail to Fearless is to be released late April and will bring thoughtful melodies to your spring days/nights.
