Originally from the Great Lakes region of NH, but now based in Boston comes the country/folk stylings of Katie Dobbins, who released her sophomore record just last month titled "There Is Light". Katie's sound is a pure, rich blend of country and folk melodies juxtaposed upon Katie's brilliant vocal prowess that explodes off the canvas immediately as you begin listening to it. I was really impressed with Katie's talents from the start, and she brings that old school country sensibility to light albeit in a more modern setting that makes listeners stop and take notice. What I like most about Katie's sound is that it's not an immaculately produced effort with all the bells and whistles, it's a very modestly arranged effort that does a great job of accentuating Katie's talents in a very simple way that will most certainly grab the attention of listeners looking for something different. A marvelous talent who will be making big waves for sure this year and beyond.
To check out "There Is Light" for yourself, it's available on most major streaming providers and for more on Katie Dobbins, please give her a 'Like' on Facebook located over here, and visit her official website at this spot here for more in depth info on everything going on in her world.
