Wildcard (week 9):
Kalie Shorr – Amy

Kalie Shorr’s career is off to a fabulous start. She was named β€˜CMT Next Woman Of Country’ and a β€˜Top 10 Country Artist To Watch In 2018’. A year later, her debut album Open Book even became the #7 best album of 2019 according to The New York Times.

The Portland, Maine singer-songwriter just started the next chapter of her success story. Amy is her first all-new track of 2021. Gone are the country roots. Instead, she embraces a grungy sound. But that only emerged secondarily. Initially, Kalie Shorr posted a 30 second video of the song played on an acoustic guitar on TikTok. It was watched over 2 million times, and one of its viewers was renowned producer Butch Walker (Avril Lavigne, Taylor Swift, Green Day). He offered to produce the final version, which ended up a rock song in the best β€˜90s tradition. To me, it sounds like a cross between Cornershop’s Brimful Of Asha and SinΓ©ad O’Connor’s Mandinka (the latter being from 1987, obviously, but you get the point).

Amy is an honest and brutal song. Based on feelings of both hurt and anger, it contains great one liners like β€˜He wasn’t over me when you were under him’. It’s the first track released from Shorr’s forthcoming EP, set for release later this year.
