Top 10 Albums of February
“stunning…her voice in particular…radiates so much empathy and love and understanding. The whole record just really moved me, it’s so beautiful.” –NPR Music

“such clarity of expression and disarming intimacy—Expectations is aesthetically warmhearted even in its tensest moments of confrontation” –NPR's "Morning Edition"

“there’s something wonderfully nostalgic about Katie Pruitt’s Expectations… rustles up the timeless, infinite feeling of being young and limitless.” –Rolling Stone

“With stately ballads and choruses to shatter glass, the Nashville singer-songwriter’s debut builds into a record that feels deeply thoughtful and unified.” –Pitchfork

“an immediately captivating listen”
“At the end of ten tracks and just over 45 minutes you not only have a reasonable understanding of who newcomer Katie Pruitt is as a person, but know that this near flawless introduction is the auspicious start of a career that shows incredible promise.” – American Songwriter

“Katie Pruitt possesses the storytelling finesse of someone like Jason Isbell, but she also has the rootsy rock star energy...of someone like Sheryl Crow.”
“The real draw here, though, is her voice, which can sound delicate and feathery. She’s also capable of sudden, robust power, and she can switch from one to the other in a flash.” –Paste

“stunning”
“As an artist’s opening statement, the album is bold and beautiful, impactful and entertaining. It’s an exercise in courage so exquisitely raw” –No Depression

“tremendously compelling”
“beautifully crafted and casually powerful songs” –Nashville Scene

“Her clear, pure alto can flip into dizzying runs or searing grit at a moment’s notice, and she lives up to everything suggested by the name of her new single, ‘Expectations.’” –Sounds Like Nashville

“Katie Pruitt is blazing a distinguishable path through Nashville with her brilliant songwriting and captivating voice to match.” –Taste Of The Country

“Navigating complex issues such as sexuality and mental health, Pruitt calls on her supple, clear and eloquent vocals to unite clear-headed delivery with a powerful message.” –The Boot

“Rare are first-album lyrical voices so fully formed and fully engaging as Pruitt’s…Yet, song after song, Pruitt delivers on every level—writing, performance, and production” –Folk Alley

In celebration of the album, Pruitt will embark on an extensive headline tour this spring including stops at New York’s Mercury Lounge, Boston’s Café 939, Philadelphia’s MilkBoy, Atlanta’s Eddie’s Attic (two nights), Louisville’s Zanzabar and Nashville’s Exit/In among many others.
