ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
JOHN MAYER says -
Keppie’s “voice is beautiful, just gorgeous. [She’s] like a contemporary female Nick Drake…and [her] guitar playing is so beautiful, so raw…”
October 2008

The Boston Globe (September 2008) -
"Coutts's songs marry soul and folk so gorgeously, you'll cheer when they get stuck on endless repeat on the jukebox in your brain."

The Boston Globe (August 2008) -
"Coutts...may remind you Feist and Ingrid Michaelson."

Keppie is the Australian-born soul-folkstress, submerged and reveling in the new wave of 'folk fusion' – an eclectic melding of acoustic-based song that steps inside jazz and soul.

Since arriving in Boston in 2005, Keppie has honed her craft amongst some of the music world’s brightest, including recording with multi-Grammy award-winning artist, John Mayer. Mayer, after hearing just one song, was visibly moved, saying “Keppie’s voice is beautiful, just gorgeous. She’s like a female contemporary Nick Drake”. The encounter with Mayer resulted in Mayer producing a track on Keppie’s most recent album, ‘The Ordinary World’.

Keppie started out spreading her words as poetry at local Sydney arts haunts and indie spaces. Very quickly the words found a canvas of music, and almost as quickly she was thrust into the recording studio. Chris Dubrow, former front-man of Australian political-industri-rock group Insurge instantly recognized the strength of Keppie’s writing and brought her into his recording studio, producing her first album, “On the Edge of a Dream”.

The immediate connection that she forms with an audience saw Keppie performing at some of Sydney’s best-known venues for live music, including the Excelsior, the Gaelic Club, the Seymour Centre, and international jazz-hub, The Basement as part of a selection of the city’s best songwriters. Keppie’s collaboration with sound engineer, Jason Mannell (who has produced Oz mega-rock group Jet), and separately with Sean Carey (currently in Oz super band Thirsty Merc), saw the release of “Tears De Picardie” to a sell-out launch show in Sydney’s Kings Cross.

Keppie now lives in the northeast of the United States, and regularly performs her crafted blend of folk, jazz, and roots, inspiring comparisons to Feist and Ingrid Michaelson (The Boston Globe, August 2008). Keppie approaches songwriting with the fiery consequence of Ani DiFranco, and performs with the sultry eloquence of Norah Jones, eliciting the Boston Globe to write that “Coutts’ songs marry soul and folk so gorgeously, you’ll cheer when they get stuck on endless repeat in the jukebox in your brain”.

Just beautiful
A gorgeous sound and very easy to listen to. I also caught my dad listening to it and he's now a big fan. :)
