'Call Out', Encourages The Soulfully Emotive Katey Brooks
When the U.K.'s Katey Brooks sings, it can seem as if time itself surrenders to the bewitching aura of her spine-tingling vocal grandeur. For mere mortals, the impact of hearing Brooks' remarkable voice is inescapably transfixing: a breath-taking combination of ethereally haunting sensitivity, soulfully emotive gravitas and tenderly articulated vulnerability, her voice resonates with a uniquely compelling magnetism that can indeed, if momentarily, make the tick of the clock seem an irrelevance.
The perfect conduit for her keenly perceptive and mindfully heart-felt lyricism, her voice is imbued with the kind of authenticity of sentiment that intuitively allows for a meaningful connection and exchange of emotion between the artist and listener to be established. Here giving a perfect example of this with an intimately moving and poignantly resonant rendition of 'Call Out' from her upcoming album, 'We The People', Brooks offers both comfort and encouragement, and hope and resilience, in the face of life's often alienating and heart-aching vicissitudes.
