Kirsten DeHaan

Album Title: Conform
Release Date: August 31, 2004
Genre: Pop/Rock
If a person were to judge Kirsten DeHaan's debut album by its cover, as people are apt to do, they might think she's in line to become the next Sarah McLachlan. This is another of life's examples of why we shouldn't do such things. DeHaan named her album "Conform" for a reason, but it isn't because that's what she does. While her clean-cut look would suggest otherwise, DeHaan fits better among the ranks of Fiona Apple or early Liz Phair than syrupy songstresses. Oft compared to Janis Joplin, the NYC singer/songwriter does have moments when she throws down the Joplin grit, but more often than not her vocals lean towards the softer, more accessible side of things. Angry guitars and angsty lyrics pop DeHaan out of the stereotypical female singer/songwriter mould, and slower ballads like "Breakthrough" and "Apologies" bar her from an "angry rock chic" title.
