We love the songwriting. We love the understated dignity of the live performance. We even love the YouTube video trails. Kate Rogers, indie rock darling, launches off a bedrock of cred. Following eight years on Grand Central Records, where she was a regular vocalist for artists like AIM and Rae & Christian, Kate decided it was time to bring it back to her home in Ontario, Canada. Following the critically acclaimed St Eustacia album and a recent stint singing with Toronto indie rockers The Coast, Kate and her band kick it up more than a few notches with the release of Beauregard. While never losing sight of her Folk heritage, Beauregard picks up the pace where St. Eustacia left off. With production by Toronto’s Chris Stringer and mixed by the venerable Michael Phillip Wojewoda, this album heralds a little extra pop and punch than earlier recordings, and in turn gives Kate’s affecting, soulful vocals room to roam.
