The Ontario singer-songwriter Kate Rogers isn’t exactly new – she’s had success oversees and has worked plenty in collaboration with others – but her album Repeat Repeat has fresh start written all over it. Indeed, the title itself might be a mantra attached to a new way of thinking. In a clear, strong voice Rogers deals with detrimental, perhaps draining, relationships. “I’m searching for a healthy diversion to set my mind at ease,” she sings on the bright pop stomp of Contender. -B.W.
