Katharine Timoney – Guilty Sin

KT_PromoshotKatharine Timoney could sing the back of a breakfast cereal box and knock your socks off. Similarities span the spectrum from Alabama Shakes to Sharon Jones, with a splash of Janis Seigel [of Manhattan Transfer]. Guilty Sin is a strong belt of top-shelf whiskey served in elegant Bacarat crystal; smooth, potent, sophisticated.

You’re to Blame wows you from the get go with that smokey, hipster, multi-range powerhouse voice. It’s jazz meets tango and a wee bit of bossonova. This is the money song. I mean, just wow! Think You Know plumbs the depths of the R&B palate with deep, rich vocals, and features a skilled piano solo at the bridge.

Why Can’t We is cabaret club jazz, vocally confident with the goods to back it up. The title track Guilty Sin is an R&B, blues club anthem and a germane follow up to the take no shit blues of You’re to Blame. This chick is the real deal; that rare gem firmly ensconced and very comfortable in the jazz and R&B milieu. She is at home here and it shows. Noelle Ellis, GiggingNI.com
