Published Feb 21, 2020Nashville-based, Atlanta-born, folk singer-songwriter Katie Pruitt's full-length debut, Expectations, is a tour de force showcase of the unbridled passion and sweet tenderness of the human voice, often within the same song.
Co-produced by Pruitt with help from close friend Mike Robinson in Nashville, these ten songs stretch Pruitt to her vocal limit, often starting out soft, slowly picking up steam and rising to a fever pitch of raw and vibrant power. Her beautiful melodies creep up on you and then take your breath away.
Lyrically, Pruitt explores aligning her sexual identity with her religious upbringing, and finds power in the truth-telling. Musically, she is backed by a first rate band who riff like classic rockers.
Expectations is a nearly flawless record; Katie Pruitt will have to work hard to top what she has achieved here. (Rounder)
