Kaycee Cole is a country/blues/rock musician and performance artist from Seattle, Wa. Kaycee takes a lot of pride in her vocal abilities, noting a “What you hear is what you get” approach void of auto tune and excessive punch-ins. Her training and background are extensive, with training at Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama and Cornish College of the Arts. She’s done Opera, MTV, casinos, and performing for our troops in Korea. Kaycee cites her inner blues diva to Etta James and Nina Simone.
Her music definitely has an unquenched yearning vibe. Her choice of covers hint at this from “I Put A Spell On You” to “At Last.” She reveals her vocal chops on both tracks, not being afraid to bring fresh and enthusiastic renditions to female vocalist classics.
Her original track listed on her myspace “Anymore” is a finger-snapping romp on the piano, scorning an untrue lover. Kaycee isn’t afraid to reveal her soul, digging deep vocally and emotionally for a truly swingin’, vengeful song that makes me say”you go girl!” Kaycee holds all the right notes, in all the right places, with just the right amount of pizzazz that makes the listener wonder where she will take them next.
“You’re the king of your castle, I was just your slave,
You killed your golden girls, then lost your golden eggs,
I been a stranger in a house, you never made a home,
ain’t beggin you to love me, like a dog for a bone,
Anymore, anymore, anymore.”
So, if you want music that has roots, experience, and showwomanship that crosses musical genre, then listen to Kaycee Cole, Queen of Hearts, Jukebox Heroine.
