Review: Had It All – Katharine McPhee

Had It All, Katharine McPhee

Artist: Katharine McPhee
Song: Had It All
Release date:  August 25
Label:  Verve Records

Back in the game again, American Idol runner-up Katharine McPhee is set to release her sophomore album Unbroken this October. Things are all different this time around, first of all Katharine is blonde, and more importantly the sound she opted for is completely different to everything found on her debut LP. One main reason is that the genius John Alagia (John Mayer, Jason Mraz) helped produce and perfect the forthcoming album.  Katharine was released of her contract with RCA after dissatisfying album sales, which gave her more freedom to evolve as an artist and record the material she wanted to record. It is crystal clear that she left the R&B-fused and over-produced pop days well behind her. The lead single has a raw, earthy feel to it while McPhee keeps marinating her vocal prowess still. The bridge features a billowing high note that brings back her days of “Idol” to mind. If the upcoming album features more of “Had It All”, I’m sold.
