I mortgaged the kids, took a second on the house and sold grandma, to finance this CD.
Sherman Oaks, CA (PRWEB) October 14, 2007
Australian band Gods Girlfriend releases its first CD Don't Panic, in the United States after a similar release this past July in Australia.
Headed by lead singer and song writer Katrina (Kat) Alberts, who brings a fresh style to her jazz-pop sound with straight forward lyrics that forces the listener to sit up and take notice of what she is saying through her music.
This is Alberts second run at the music business, having been a part of the Australian touring company of 'The Rocky Horror Show,' while in her twenties. Alberts met her husband while on tour, got married, had a family, and put her music career on hold. When her marriage dissolved, Alberts was forced to do whatever it took to provide for her three young daughters while attending Queensland Conservatorium, where she studied jazz. Alberts also attend the University of New England, Armidale and earned a bachelor's degree in politics.
As Kat says in her bio "I mortgaged the kids, took a second on the house and sold grandma, to finance this CD." Alberts feels she is once again ready to hit the music scene with her own style and brand of music.
Don't Panic was produced by Zoltan Campbell who also plays bass player for the group. This CD is recorded on the Ridiculous Records label, an independent record company in Australia. Through a series of connections in the jazz world, Alberts managed to convince world renowned pianist Mike Garson of David Bowie fame, to lend his grand piano to the recording. He is heard on three tracks; Children, Miracle and Dweller. This makes for a higher caliber of music with an established artist like Garson mixing his talent into this project. Garson is quoted as saying that gods girlfriend was '...one of my favorite collaborations.'
Kat Alberts and her band have created a highly stylized collection of songs that are both melodic but still have an adult contemporary edge with just a bit of jazz thrown in to the mix for a totally unique musical experience.
Don't Panic is available through CDBaby.com, iTunes, Napster, and a dozen other downloadable sites on the Internet.
