Kate Rogers – St. Eustacia (Grand Central)

now-magazine-logoFor a Canadian, Kate Rogers has the contemporary Bristish female vocalist act down pat. Sounding remarkable like a jazzier Dido, Rogers pours out her heart on swingy tracks like “Not Ten Years Ago” and “Sidelines,” though the dark “Nothing Appeals To Me Here, ” with its Eastern feel, is slightly out of place among her lighter tunes. Rogers shows her weak side on “Mighty,” pleading for the return of a lost lover while a delicate piano line adds to the background folk melodies. Like a candy apple with hidden razor blades, this chanteuse sounds remarkably innocent until you notice the sharp edges. – CH
