Theres no doubt about it one of the most striking new talents Ive heard thus far this year is Denton singer-songwriter Kaela Sinclair.
Gifted with a sultry soprano and capable of crafting songs full of ambition and cinematic scope, the 23-year-old Sinclair, who teaches at Southlakes Hall Music Productions and is a 2012 graduate of the University of North Texas, will release her debut album, Sun & Mirror, on Oct. 8.
Its packed with heavy hitters, all of whom augment Sinclairs formidable skills.
Produced and mixed by Midlake drummer McKenzie Smith, who also drums on the record, Sun & Mirror also features contributions from Daniel Hart, Buffi Jacobs, Evan Jacobs, Scott Lee and Midlakes Joey McClellan and Jesse Chandler.
Mirror is a lush, richly textured piece of work brimming with ambition and suffused with a dark beauty. In short, one of the best albums to emerge from the DFW area thus far in 2013.
Sinclair will celebrate Mirror's release with an Oct. 7 show at Dans Silverleaf (shell be joined by Bethan and Robert Gomez), but today, DFW.com is proud to offer the premiere of the albums first single, Original Sin.
Its a fantastic introduction to Sinclairs style, spiked with keening guitar lines and intense percussion. Please to enjoy.
