CD Review of KK Miller's I'm Ok With Me. Produced by Richard E. Carpenter.

 CD Review of KK Miller's "I'm Ok With Me", Produced by Richard E. Carpenter

Written By Sherry Bach

 

I've heard some powerful voices but KK Miller makes belting out vocals sound easy. She glides with the melodies effortlessly and there are few singers who have been blessed with such a vast vocal range.  Mix Lee Ann Rimes voice with Martina McBride's, and then blend in some bluesy melodies to get an idea of what KK Miller sounds like. As a matter of fact I spent some time googling KK Miller and listening to some of her live performances. It is hard to find a perfectly executed voice in live performances but KK Miller delivers.

 

As I listened through this delightful creative work, I thought, "Let It Ride" with its bluegrass feel and fast pace was probably going to be my favorite. After all, I heard a mandolin, played so pretty by Kellen Wenrich and I've always been a sucker for stringed instruments and good bluegrass. Then I heard, "Walk With Me" which became my new favorite.  John Heinrich's saxophone is perfect and the way Ms. Miller allows the melody to control the building up of her voice is often sought after but rarely found. "Walk With Me" is one of those perfect marriages between lyric, melody, voice and production. 

 

Highlights of this CD include Rory Faciane's unique percussion sound on "I'm Ok With Me". Rory is one of the most diversified drummers the world of percussion has ever known and he is well respected in the realm of music.

 

The musical production on Hank Williams' "Honky Tonkin" is fantastic and KK Miller does Hank proud.  "Timeless And True Love", is written by Charley Black, Austin Roberts and Buzz Cason.  Remember Buzz? He was a co-writer with Mac Gayden on the big hit "Everlasting Love" recorded originally by Robert Knight which went to #1 in the United Kingdom. The song is considered a rock-n-rock icon and Buzz's talented contribution to "Timeless And True Love" is obvious.

 

The problem with picking favorites while listening to a great CD for the first time is that the favorite keeps changing which is what happened again when I heard, "Younger Every Day" with its driving lively beat and kicking electric guitar solos. Then I heard "I Wish He'd Been Drinking Whiskey".  Ok, it's settled…"I Wish He'd Been Drinking Whiskey" is my favorite song on this CD. Wait! It's between, "You Can't Make Me" and "I Wish He'd Been Drinking Whiskey".  "I Wish He'd Been Drinking Whiskey" was written by Bob DiPiero and Karyn Rochelle. Bob is one of my favorite song writers who has written at least 15 #1 hits. Read more about Bob in MusicRow's 30 year anniversary issue.

 

Then again, I can't stop listening to "Let It Ride".  It's really settled now…I cannot pick a favorite on this CD; too many good songs.

 

This project is produced by Richard E. Carpenter. There are producers and then there are talented producers who have been around the block a time or two, in and out of musical alleys, up and down the row, and who have touched people's lives in a positive way. Richard is the latter and is the perfect example of the kind of producer a true artist would want with numerous years of experience behind him providing wisdom for the road ahead.  KK Miller's authentic talent and sound shines throughout this project and "I'm Ok With Me" is a must have for any music lover's collection.

 

Sherry Bach is a freelance writer, published author, and songwriter, who has been writing for forty years. Many of her works can be found online by googling "sherrybach".
