Kerin Maguire‘s album cover for Places features a childhood picture of Kerin smiling wide while holding a guitar. It sets the stage for the album’s 13 tracks.
Places is the sort of record that can only be characterized as terrifyingly revealing to make as an artist. Maguire does not have loud, all-consuming background instrumentals or other band members to hide behind. Instead, Maguire makes music with her lyrics at the forefront and crisp vocals. On Places, she is vulnerable, and with each track tells the listener a story about something she’s learned or experienced throughout her 24 years.
Like all of us, Kerin experiences dramatic highs and lows. On “Kiwi Green” she sings “life is so sweet like blueberry pie,” while on “Birthday Blues” Kerin thinks “karma’s a bitch and fortune cookies lie.” It’s refreshing to hear an artist so transparent and honest. Places is now available for purchase on Bandcamp and will be available on streaming platforms in the next few days.
