This week we are crushing on my girl KASHKA!
KASHKA (aka Kat Burns) and I have known each other for a couple of years now. I’ve always been an admirer of her floaty folk pop style. When I listen to Kat sing, I’m reminded of the coy intelligence of Suzanne Vega and the throaty deep vocals of Feist, but with a little something that is only KASHKA.
Kat Burns has been making music for a decade now. Formerly a member of Forest City Lovers (with whom she released 3 albums), Kat has 3 albums under the moniker KASHKA including her brand new release Relax. Relax was produced by Lisa Conway, Andrew Collins and Kat herself. This album really showcases KASHKA’s dynamic style, both vocally and musically. Between the pure vocals, beautiful strings, modern synths and complex music and lyrics, Relax is a musical journey. Dealing with themes like feminism, connection, isolation, and what it is to be human, there’s more to this album than what immediately meets the ear.
Check out KASHKA performing “Float Away” from Relax:
Along with being a rad musician, Kat is also one awesome and BRAVE lady! I’ve gotten to know her better through training for the Red Carpet Rumble. The Rumble is a white collar music industry charity boxing tournament taking place on September 14th. I’ve watched Kat get stronger with every session doing something she’s never done before, and it’s made me love and respect her all the more.
