Biography

Katharine McPhee warmly laughs as she confesses she’s been in “artistic hiding” for the last few years.

“It took me a long time to figure out where I wanted to go and be as an artist,” she says. “I needed time to learn who I was as a musician.”

Once she discovered the answer, however, her path was sure and swift. On Unbroken, her Verve ... Read more in Amazon's Katharine McPhee Store

Editorial Reviews

Katharine McPhee's career launched with her renowned run on "American Idol" in 2006. She has already enjoyed success with Christmas releases from her 2007 single "O Come All Ye Faithful" to 2009's "I'll Be Home For Christmas." Now she has recorded some of her favourite Christmas songs for her third album titled Christmas Is The Time.To Say I Love You, to be released by Verve Forecast. "I know these songs so well. These are the songs I listened to growing up. Hopefully my versions will be unique, but at the same time timeless; full and rich yet simple and intimate." The idea for this holiday album came about after the success of her first Christmas single, "I'll Be Home For Christmas," which was released last year. The song was a huge hit, downloaded over 500,000 times exclusively on iTunes. "I've been blessed to share Christmas with my family and close friends. Life on the road has made me realize how many people spend Christmas alone... These experiences inspired me to write an original song for the album called 'It's Not Christmas Without You.'" The producer of the album is Allen Sides, one of the most respected engineer/producers in music. A two-time Grammy winner for albums with Burt Bacharach and Joni Mitchell, Sides has also worked with Eric Clapton, Alanis Morrisette, Faith Hill, Mary J. Blige, Frank Sinatra, Ray Charles and Ella Fitzgerald. Co-producing the album is Grammy nominated producer/engineer/ arranger Steven Miller who has worked with the Dave Matthews Band, Pink, Suzanne Vega and George Winston to name a few. The title track of the CD, "Christmas Is The Time.To Say I Love You," is a rarely covered song originally recorded by rocker Billy Squier in 1981. The album will also be filled with familiar classics, whether traditional or contemporary, from "O Holy Night" and "This Christmas" to a medley of "Away In A Manger"/"O Little Town Of Bethlehem" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" featuring trumpeter Chris Botti.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's all about the VOICE! November 9, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I suppose it's a matter of taste, but I love Kat's voice and she sounds amazing on this Christmas CD. There are serious, heartfelt ballads and fun-loving standards here that together make for an incredible showcase for Kat and her beautiful voice. I was honestly very surprised how much I LOVED the original tunes, expecting only to like the standards. Gratefully, her version of "O Holy Night" is understated and subtle. I was worried that Kat would give it the Celine Dion treatment. Thankfully, she doesn't. For the low price, this CD is a must own for this holiday seaon. I will be playing this CD all season long.

**** The iTunes version gives you a fun version of "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas" as a bonus track. Also, you can download a few Christmas tracks there ("O Come all ye Faithful" and "I'll be Home for Christmas", both of which were released as singles a few years back.) These extras are for people like me who can't get enough of her voice!

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Great! November 19, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I like Christmas music, and usually buy a few new Christmas CDs every year around this time. Today, I bought Mariah Carey's "Merry Christmas II You", Lady Antebellum's "A Merry Little Christmas", Wilson Phillips' "Christmas in Harmony", and Katharine McPhee's "Christmas Is The Time". I really couldn't believe how much I liked Katharine's album. I can't call myself a die-hard Kat fan, but I definitely agree with the other reviewer who said this is the kind of music she needs to be making. It's a very "classy" CD. She puts a current spin on some classic songs, but maintains the traditional feel of the classics, while still putting her own unique flavor on the song. That's a tough balancing act to pull off for anybody. Faith Hill did it pretty well last year, and Wilson Phillips' CD is very good too. But I think Kat's is even better. This one will surprise you, especially if you're like me and didn't really know what to expect. Best Christmas CD so far in 2010. Great job Katharine!

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning Vocal Quality October 16, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a classic and elegant Christmas album. Katharine Mcphee's vocals plus Christmas songs equals magical perfection! This has become one of my favorite Christmas albums instantly! There is indeed a certain quality to Mcphee's voice that sets her apart from other vocalists. I love every track in this album, no exception! She did a different take on "Jingle Bells", which is great. Her original Christmas composition, "It's Not Christmas Without You" is a beautiful song. She set the key high vocally in the title track, "Christmas Is the Time to Say I Love You", which I truly love. With Chris Botti in "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas", it is bound to be a classic. Her voice resonates and is crystal clear on the poignant album closer,"Who Would Imagine A King".
A sure Christmas playlist topper every year!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Christmas Music December 31, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Katharine McPhee's voice on this album reminds me of when she was a contestant on American Idol. She embellishes the music in appropriate places- her instinct in right on the money. I love the new songs and the classic songs. It seem each have her own stamp on them while staying true to the music I grew up loving.

She is very good on this album. It's one of my favorites. I loved her role in Smash. I hope they give her another role soon.

Enjoyed playing Katharine's Christmas CD this past Christmas! Her beautiful voice lends itself to a variety of music. The old and new Christmas songs were great! If she comes out with another Christmas CD this year, I'll be one of the first to order it!

Katharine McPhee's Christmas album was one of the, if not the best Christmas collection of classic songs and new ones that I've ever heard. Her beautiful voice just made my Christmas holiday bright. Thank you Kathrine! Keep up the good work.
