Overview

Kate MacLeod's recording career was off to an impressive start with her entirely acoustic debut album, Trying to Get It Right. The promising CD didn't make her a huge name in the music world, but those who did hear it realized that MacLeod was an artist of substance and depth. MacLeod's folk and folk-pop isn't folk that gets in your face -- she isn't an "angry young woman" a la Ani DiFranco, and her songs opt for quiet reflection and subtle introspection instead of angst, anger or political protest. Subtlety and restraint is the rule on impressive acoustic offerings such as "Angel on my Mind," "Lark in the Morning" and the bluesy "Me & My Medicine," but while MacLeod never hits you over the head, she knows how to get her points across. On the poignant "Welfare Line," she really brings the struggle of a welfare recipient to life but does so without preaching; her storytelling is equally sympathetic on "Pawn Shop Man" and "Alabama Midwife." Constant Emotion made it clear that MacLeod was someone folk enthusiasts should take notice of.
