The 20-year-old Liverpudlian singer-songwriter Katie Mac is barely six months in the music world, but she has come far in that short time, because not only was she a guest on the BBC Merseyside event in her hometown, meanwhile, she played with her band at the Sound City Festival and she opened the Liverpool International Music Festival in Sefton Park (August 2015). A young lady with ambition and to notify the outside world of her existence, the ep Minutes into Hours is released with two fresh pop/rock compositions.

Minutes into Hours is a mid-tempo rock ballad for piano, guitars, percussion and softly humming synths (which sound like violins) in the background. It is dangerous to label a young artist, but we dare to situate her near Haim, with a little of Ricky Lee Jones even, but the composition is strong and original enough to speak of a new talent. No Change There has a more quiet pace and sounds much more like a singer-songwriter composition of which the lyrics are as important as the musical accompaniment. Which again consist of gently gurgling guitars, striking drums and synths that sound like violins. Katie's voice sounds sharper and has the quality of a seasoned chansonnière.

A new talent that deserves to be kept in mind, because Katie Mac not only sounds great, as a 20-year-old, she is already an experienced singer-songwriter.

De 20-jarige Liverpoolse singer-songwriter Katie Mac is nauwelijks zes maanden actief in de muziekwereld, maar ze heeft het in die korte tijd al ver geschopt, want niet alleen was ze te gast op het BBC Merseyside-event, in haar geboortestad speelde ze ondertussen met haar band op het Sound City Festival en eind augustus mocht ze het Liverpool International Music Festival in Sefton Park openen. Een jonge dame met ambitie en omdat ook de buitenwereld van haar bestaan op de hoogte wordt gebracht, is er nu de ep Minutes into Hours met 2 frisse pop-/rockcomposities.

Minutes into Hours is een midtempo rockballade voor piano, gitaren, slagwerk en zacht zoemende synths (die klinken als violen) op de achtergrond. Het is gevaarlijk om op een jonge artieste al meteen een label aan te brengen, maar we situeren haar graag in de buurt van Haim, met een beetje Ricky Lee Jones zelfs, maar de compositie is sterk en origineel genoeg om van een nieuw talent te spreken dat zich beslist niet laat wegdrukken in de massa. No change There is rustiger qua tempo en klinkt veel meer als een singer-songwritercompositie waarin de tekst even belangrijk is als de muzikale begeleiding. Die bestaat opnieuw uit zacht ruisende gitaren, opvallend slagwerk en synths die klinken als violen. Katie’s stem klinkt scherper en ze heeft de kwaliteit van een geroutineerde chansonnière.

Een nieuw talent dat het verdient om in het oog te worden gehouden, want Katie Mac klinkt niet alleen uitstekend, als 20-jarige heeft ze het metier van singer-songwriter bovendien al aardig onder de knie.
