CD Review: Christine Cochran Debuts With "Someone"

Newcomer Christine Cochran is readying the release of her debut solo album entitled "Someone I'll Never Meet." The album was mixed by the Grammy Nominated, Chris Bell (Erykah Badu, Don Henley, Beyonce) and mastered by Steve Fallone (The Strokes, Sonic Youth).

The album opens with the the gentle, acoustic "Burbank" which features Rick G. Nelson of The Polyphonic Spree on strings. The song captures Christine's singing and song-writing talents perfectly. She picks up the tempo on the pop folk-rock sounding "Subatomic Zero." Her voice draws strong similarities to Natalie Merchant as her songs also follow the same vibe as the 10,000 Maniacs. Her rock edge shows up on "Beautiful Tattoo" and "Dear Allen," but it's the gentle acoustic songs "What's There To Eat?" and "Aloysius" where her lyrics and vocals shine. Christine finishes the album right where she began, with great singing and stories.

Christine Cochran has one show scheduled at the moment in Austin, TX, but look for more to follow. Her new album will be released on October 25 through Jahli Rodger Records. For more information, please visit christinecochran.com.
