Kat Goldman / The Workingman’s Blues
Release Date: Nov. 3, 2017
All songs by Kat Goldman (SOCAN)
Produced by Bill Bell
Genre: Americana / Singer-Songwriter
On her new album The Workingman’s Blues, Toronto-based singer/songwriter Kat Goldman has crafted a powerful statement on the struggles so many of us face today. Essentially a concept album based on her recent real-life experiences living in Boston, the 12-track collection explores the dark underbelly of American society through the eyes of a character, the “workingman,” as told by a female narrator.
As a chronicle of a blue-collar Boston kid’s fight to overcome his hardscrabble upbringing, The Workingman’s Blues was made with producer/guitarist Bill Bell (Tom Cochrane, Jason Mraz), and a band comprised of bassist Marc Rogers, drummer Davide Direnzo, keyboardist Lou Poumanti and cellist Kevin Fox. Overall, it is Goldman’s most accomplished work to date, with a sound that hearkens back to the ‘70s singer/songwriter era.
