Kelley McRae: Highrises In Brooklyn

sonaBLAST! Records [2008]

Fire Drill Review:
Sophomore album from Brooklyn girl Kelley McRae that has super pleasant vocals and strong acoustic guitar work. Her voice range is a mix of styles that are a combo of Neko Case, Laura Cantrell and Ani DiFranco all mixed into different tracks for a cohesive album that moves effortlessly from track to track. Coming in at a perfect 35 minutes, Highrises In Brooklyn is an album that once it gets some airtime it should be an instant hit along with the name Kelley McRae.

Key Track: "Highrises In Brooklyn"

Band With Similar Fire: Laura Cantrell
