‘I Am My Own’ is Kimberley MacGregor’s sophomore album. The Edmonton based singer/songwriter won Female Artist of the Year as well as R&B/Soul Recording of the Year at the Edmonton Music Awards earlier this year.
The twelve track release showcases her powerful and impressive voice and song writing skills. The songs on the album go perfectly together but also
differ from each other to make them all unique. “Go” is one of the slower songs on the album and has an echo to some of the vocals that allows them to blend nicely with the music. “I’m Okay” is another favourite of mine off the album and shows off her vocal range. “Favours” is a bit more upbeat compared to “Go” and “I’m Okay” and will have your toes tapping and head nodding along.
I had not previously listened to anything by Kimberley MacGregor but after listening to this album I’m going to have to change that. Be sure to check this album out for yourself and you won’t want the twelve songs to end either.
I’m a Toronto girl born and raised but have been living in Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick since 2010. Music and writing are my two passions, so what better place for me to be than a writer with Canadian Beats? I have been writing for the blog since May of 2013 and have had so many great experiences because of it. I listen to almost every kind of music but my favourites are pop rock, rock, indie, folk, and any other combinations of them. Concerts are definitely my favourite place to be, especially when you’re right against the barricade and can feel the energy from the band and the crowd, everyone singing the same lyrics and moving to the music. I also have a college degree in Business Administration and hope to one day be able to publish a novel.
