“I see the good in other people, why can’t I see it in myself?”
From the first line, singer-songwriter Kate Vogel expresses a level of pain and also realness that is hard to achieve while sounding so sweet and soulful. Kate Vogel has been through a lot and seen a lot, and she’s here to share her story.
The track “Rain” comes off like an indie-folk tune laden with Dolly Parton-esque lyrics that are uplifting and honest, set to a simple acoustic guitar and vocals that don’t try too hard.
What pulls you in with this track is Kate’s angelic, yet soulful vocals that give the “Rain” a level of lightness—something that works well with its deep lyrics. You end up walking away from the track feeling stronger from it. It’s not like a sad song that pulls you down and makes you want to cry for hours; “Rain” uplifts you. It’s healing through it’s beauty, and if you need a moment with yourself as you set intentions—and let go of sadness from last year—this song is it.
