Slug Magazine – Kate Schrock – Dames Rocket

BACK TO ALL NEWS

Kate Schrock Dames Rocket It is both surprising and refreshing to learn that Maine native Kate Schrock is an independent artist releasing this, her third record on her own label. Surprising because with her rich, expressive voice and strong songs, one would simply assume that she is on a major label. Refreshing then for that very fact. Co-produced with longtime collaborator Steve Drown, Schrock wrote all of the album’s 11 cuts. The quiet and soothing “intro” quickly melts into the catchy “Lose Myself”. What follows is an impressive selection of songs, whose lyrics and arrangements showcase both Kate’s voice and keyboard.
Most of the lyrics are about fractured relationships, all of which come to a full boil on the biting “Pig”, where she sings: “He’s a bit of a bastard/but mostly the crowd/biting off what he can’t chew/and talking much too loud.” Powerful stuff. Instantly likeable, one listen to Dames Rocket will make you want to hear more from this talented singer/songwriter.
