Kate McLaughlin, “You Don’t Know Me”
Singer/songwriter Kate McLaughlin delivers a potent piano-driven anthem via “You Don’t Know Me,” in which the artist explores the universal topic of being pre-judged… or, more so, the newsworthy issue of being bullied. With a beautifully delivered vocal that is both passionate and plaintive, she sings: “I see you laughing and pointing at nothing funny/You throw stones to ease your pain… You don’t know me, yet you judge me all the same.” With a simple arrangement guided only by keyboards and strings, Kate adds effective vocal harmonic layers to the song, ultimately scoring both a melodic and thematic bulls-eye.
