Kat Dahlia My Garden

Kat Dahlia’s debut album, My Garden, is only a week away and today, she has teamed up with NPR to give fans an early listen to the new album. I just sat with the album and listened to it from front to back and I definitely liked what I heard. Kat is surely going to have a good 2015. The new album will be in stores next Tuesday (1/13). Stream My Garden via NPR below:
