For the ITunes fan, can't miss downloads are:
12. Wish You Were
"Cuz I've seen your act, and I know all the facts.
I'm still in love with who I wish you were.
It ain't hard to see, who you are underneath,
I'm still in love with who I wish you were."
11. I Won't Disagree (a song that Voegele received first prize in the 2005 USA Songwriting Competition for)
"Cause lately you make me weaker in the knees
And race through my veins baby every time you're close to me
Take me away to places I ain't seen
They say you've got a hold on me'
And I Won't Disagree"
Kate has also landed a recurring role on the WB's "One Tree Hill." Her character Mia has performed several of the songs on the show that you can find right here on this album. If you're a fan of the songs you've heard on the show, this album is a must have that you'll definitely enjoy from start to finish.
This is a strong debut effort from an extremely talented young lady. Kate Voegele will be a name to look out for in the music business for many years to come. Congrats Kate, You truly are on "Top of the World."
Changing it up from all the female singers able to play piano, Kate brings back the guitar! Since Kate can play the guitar, most of the songs on her debut, Don't Look Away, are pretty rocking for the most part.
Aside from the guitar playing, what separates Kate from every other female singer-songwriter hitting it big this year? Her voice. Strong? Definitely. Different? Oh yeah. Kate's voice is full, demanding, and she's not afraid to use it to her advantage. Too often singers sound good just backed by a piano but put them in front of a full band and they fall flat. Kate doesn't have that problem. I wouldn't find it hard to believe if someone didn't love her voice as much as I though.
As for the songs themselves, you'll be hardpressed to find a track you don't like. Each has its own distinctive sound and feel. Lyrically, she covers topics every young person covers...relationships. Nothing new, I know, but she tackles the topics tastefully and with grace. I Get It, Only Fooling Myself, and No Good are the songs that prove this the best and fastest, though by no means are they the only good tracks inlcuded.
I do have to note who her record label is...MySpace Records. I know for a fact they deal primarily with 'emo' acts so to see them branching out and signing an artist as talented as Kate Voegele is a nice thing to see. Now if they'd just stop wasting money siging 'emo' bands...
My favorite songs are I Get It, Only Fooling Myself, One Way Or Another, No Good, and Devil In Me. Kate Voegele is easily listenable, to the point where you can reach for Don't Look Away at any time and be completely satisfied, which is always a good thing. Plus, she's got a sound all her own, so if you're looking for something new..BOOM! Kate Voegele might be just up your alley.
Her music is heart-felt, memorable, and upbeat! Assuming you have not heard her music, the best way to compare is thinking of Shakira and Michelle Branch combining their vocals! Kate's voice is fresh and naturally, her lyrics are thoughtful.
Kate has the potential to continue creating music and gathering an audience. She is quite natural as a performer on "One Tree Hill," and her music further justifies this matter. The hardest thing about listening to her music for the first time is NOT pressing the "restart" button after each song.
