Review: Kathy Ingraham – ‘That's What Crazy Lovers Do’



If you’ve glanced at a television or heard even a few minutes of radio in the last few months, you’ve likely already heard Kathy Ingraham sing and not really known it. An experienced vocalist, she has become the chosen voice for major corporations such as McDonald’s, Chrysler, the ABC Network, Coca-Cola, Pepsi, and many more. After tapping into her artistic streak in 2014, Kathy has gone from strength to strength, releasing numerous solo projects and singles alongside an impressive roster of artist and composers.


The next bold step in her career, ‘That’s What Crazy Lovers Do’ is her latest original cut that flows with an authentic jazz twist, combining her soulful vocals with a timeless sound to great effect. Features the legendary Pete Levin on piano, the new single is a textured composition straight from the golden age of smoky jazz bars and sultry, leading ladies. With subdued, tempered percussion, the rolling tone of the double bass, and of course Levin’s original piano melody, the music sets a brilliant platform for Kathy’s vocals, capturing an emotive, nostalgic quality that seems a world away from the music of today.



With the spotlight firmly on her vocals, you can easily see why Kathy has become the chosen sounds for some of the biggest companies in the world, and her range and textured style on ‘That’s What Crazy Lovers Do’ leaves you starstruck, brushing aside any possible doubts as to her talents. A true ode to the jazz greats, ‘That’s What Crazy Lovers Do’ brings with it a wave of nuanced, delicately built and wonderfully performed sounds, piecing them together to create a song that jazz fans of all styles and ages can enjoy.


Score: 8/10
