Girl K always will be a special band to me. The lead singer, Kathy Patino comes from the same small hometown as me and is viewed as a hometown hero by me. The band just released their new 8 song album “For Now” and I can’t get enough of it. With Girl K only having one other album and a few singles out, I was more than ready for “For Now” and the wait was well worth it. The album consists of 8 beautifully composed songs ranging from upbeat songs for you to jump around to as well as songs for rainy days like “So Strange”. Girl K is able to channel the listeners emotions with ease, Kathy’s voice is just something that is so easy for someone to connect with. Girl K is a name that more and more people are starting to get familiar with, over the course of the past year or so Girl K has been all over the city of Chicago rocking out shows. The band also was featured in These Days News’ “2019 Artists to Watch” which is something I was very happy to see.
Not only is Girl K from the same hometown as me, but their last album debut party for “Sunflower Court” was where I took my girlfriend on our first date back in 2017, so Girl K will always have a special place in my heart. What’s crazy to see is that their last album release party was hosted in a friends living and not even a year and a half later Girl K threw an album release party selling out Schubas. I cannot wait to see what else the future has in store for Girl K, and for Kathy, keep making Minooka proud
