“The Voice of the Century” is how one Eurovision winner (Charlie McGettigan) described Kathy Crinion’s talent recently. The Irish singer has, in 18 months, come from relative obscurity to being the recipient of two significant Irish Country industry awards and a nomination as Best Female at the recent Irish Country Music Awards.
Now her much anticipated album “Lovin’ What I Do” (ISGR/Venus) heralds her arrival with trumpets blown by Nashville’s top writers who have supplied original material for this velvet smooth voice to weave it’s magic upon. Pat Alger (5 number 1s for Garth Brooks), Wood Newton (Grammy award winner) and Jan Buckingham (Grammy nominee for Whitney Houston), join a plethora of other renowned songsmiths at the peak of their game as they contribute to this world-class collection which spans the genre from cutting edge country rockers to silky smooth love ballads, all delivered by that iconic voice and supported by a stellar gathering of gifted musicians from both sides of the Atlantic.
Kathy Crinion’s “Lovin’ What I Do”, produced by Pete Ware (Charlie Landsborough and many others) is quite simply an aural delight!
