Sunday Times ‘The 20 hottest acts around’

the-times-logoHaving lent vocal lustre to albums by Aim & Rae & Christian, the Canadian singer Kate Rogers steps up to the plate this month with a small gem of a solo album, ‘St. Eustacia’ (released by Grand Central). A deft lyrical touch – “lately, I’ve been looking forward to meeting the rest of you” – is but one of her gifts; above all, though, is Rogers’ wonderful voice that moves the album from the ‘mildly diverting” pile to the one marked “slow-burning but ultimately outstanding”. Flecked with blues, roots, jazz and country, her songwriting too, shows why it is high time she moves out of the shadows. ‘St. Eustacia is one of those records that will soundtrack events that are memories in the making, could we but know it.’
