The first few lines on the self-titled track of Kate Mann’s Things Look Different When the Sun Goes Down, read: “Some might say she’s lucky, all her dreams come true…” Well, it appears as though all of Mann’s dreams have come true as she has released her third album since 2005 when she left her job as a high school teacher in order to pursue a career in music.
Mann has that earthy quality of New Mexico, which shows itself not only in her voice but in her music as well. The tone of her lyrics matches their music perfectly. Some of the tracks – like Robert Johnson – have a fast-paced tempo that matches the meaning of the song. This song reads, “I haven’t sold my soul to the devil yet, but I think that I just might.” These lyrics agree with the fast beat of the song, which combine to show the pain that one can feel and his desperation to be released from a bad situation – even if that means resorting to evil, dangerous encounters.
Another similar song is Bird in My House, which also features a fast beat and is matched by the tone of Mann’s lyrics. The first stanza of this song reads, “There’s a bird in my house and I don’t know what to do./ Somebody left the window open, and in the bird flew…I can tell by his expression that he doesn’t want to leave.” These lyrics are reminiscent of that person that nobody wants around but who does not want to leave. The rest of the lyrics of this song revolve around bad luck, and at the conclusion, she breaks her mirror and exclaims, “What’s another seven years?”
Although it appears as though Mann has not had any bad luck in the past four years as she has just released this third album and is currently on tour, her father, Tom Mann, passed away on December 16, 2008. On her website,, there is a free download for the song she wrote as a tribute to her parents, titled “Thank You Note,” that appeared on her sophomore album, Devil’s Rope.
Kate Mann has the unique ability to successfully blend Americana with well-written, depressing love songs. Her lyrics are powerful, and combined with the earthiness of her voice, her music can’t go wrong.
