Kimberly Caldwell Releases Long Delayed Debut Album
In case you guys didn't already know, former American Idol contestant and current Vanguard/Capitol Records recording artist, Kimberly Caldwell released her debut solo album on April 19th. Titled Without Regret, the album was produced by Marshall Altman, Tommy Hanriksen, John Mark & MachoPsycho, and features songwriting from big names like BC Jean, Kara DioGuardi, Chad Kroeger, Lucie Silvas, not to mention Caldwell herself. I love Caldwell's bigger than life vocals, especially the smokey, rough around the edges rasp that she has when she's singing. It definitely brings to mind Kelly Clarkson, which I've said before. According to Caldwell,
"Everything I've done has led up to this moment," she says. "I'm looking forward to people finally getting to know the real me!"The album's second single, "Desperate Girls & Stupid Boys" was released in December, debuting at #50 on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart, marking her first appearence on the Billboard charts. The single was remixed for the clubs by Jason Nevins, Digital Dog, Lucky Date and DJ's From Mars and managed to peak at #30 on the dance charts. Caldwell's first single, "Mess Of You" didn't chart.
