Katherine Rondeau from the album Unfortunate Point of View available as a self-release
Folk music is the main ingredient used when Katherine Rondeau delivers Unfortunate Point of View, her recent album release. Translating the passing images into words, Katherine Rondeau is the observer and when the album title hints towards a possible disastrous outlook, she changes the course of Unfortunate Point of View with clear observations. Promises are made, and the confident force of her voice stamps all guarantees as truths as Katherine Rondeau opens the album vowing “Coming Soon (If Not Today)”. Unfortunate Point of View strums somber chords to comfort the difficult life of “Orphan Boy”, picks up the rhythm to run towards the sound of freedom in “That’s What I Hear”, and shares secret wisdoms in its title track.
Honing her style and learning to utilize the power in her voice while growing up in New Jersey, Katherine Rondeau took her first steps into a career by taking stages in the local Philadelphia Folk scene, playing venues as well as making her presence known performing at the Philadelphia Folk Festival. The Blues backs Katherine Rondeau as the guitar slides and the percussion rattles around her questions in “Why Don’t You Love Me”. The sound softens as the melody whispers under a murderous mountain tale for “Natchez Trace” while Katherine Rondeau mounts the pulpit to declare ‘every man, woman, and child needs a home’ in “Don’t Need No Preacher” and tosses her pennies in a well singing of “Wishing”. Unfortunate Point of View waits patiently for love to find its way into dreams with Bob Dylan’s “Tonight I’ll Be Staying Here with You” and ushers in a rhythmic rumble to claim power in “Let’s Work Together” as Katherine Rondeau tenderly exits the album in agreement with Joni Mitchell with a cover of her tune “Urge for Going”.
