Katy Carr has long been a songwriter’s songwriter, innovative and more than a little out there. She sits on a rich vein of creativity that turn many of her songs into performance. “Coquette” is an album that will hopefully bring her a wider audience. The thirties and forties theme of the cover offer genuine clues into her thought process, but even then it’s the unexpected way she brings these thoughts into contemporary soundscapes, infused with a rich vocal focal point. There’s an elegance and panache about the arrangements that infuse a sense of excitement.
