Kinnie Starr – “Feed the Fire”
Canadian singer, songwriter, published author and illustrator, Juno Award-winning producer Kinnie Starr is excited to share her album Feed the Fire, the latest addition to her genre-bending discography and another bold and uncompromising indictment of our times
Feed the Fire follows a 2015 taxi cab collision, which left Starr with a brain injury and a long period of recovery, which served as an opportunity for deep reflection. With Feed The Fire, she unpacks her recovery process and the eventual reconnection with her truest self.
Cutting and edgy ruminations upon digital communication, pornography, trolling and more are revealed here, but this is not an album that confines itself sonically to dealing with such heavy topics. Included on the album of ten unique, poignant tracks are frequent detours into bright pop (“I’m Ready”), throwback love-hop (“Big World”), and expansive synth soundscapes (“The Cold Sea”).
Early reviews of Feed The Fire include PopMatters lauding the “powerful message” of “I’m Ready” and its “irresistibly catchy tune.” Elsewhere, Exclaim! praised the “urgent and reflective” track “Gotta Do Something’’ while Popdust commended the “unique sound” of “Big World.”
