Katharine McPhee’s Upcoming “Fun, Sophisticated” New Album
In addition to filming and recording music for ‘Smash’ since the summer of 2011, Katharine has been working on a new solo record to be released by Columbia Records. As of now, the album is scheduled for a summer release. Kat is working closely with A&R Teresa L. Whites, who has crafted albums with the likes of Britney Spears, Beyoncé, P!NK, and so many more.
While Katharine herself has been quite tight-lipped about the record thus far, fans should not expect another “Unbroken” (2010). She recently said, “I’m kind of keeping it a little bit close to the sleeve. I know I don’t want to have a really solemn and dark record. I want something that’s fun, that feels sophisticated but youthful.”
Although nothing else has been officially announced, we have dug up plenty of scoop about the recording process for this album! Continue reading
Happy New Year: Katharine McPhee’s 2012 Year In Review
Happy New Year, everybody! We hope that 2012 went out with a bang and that 2013 will be an even better year! For Katharine, 2012 held a lot of fantastic accomplishments, and 2013 is gearing up to have even more in store for her. Dana, a member of Kat McPhee Community, posted a write-up reflecting on Kat’s career in 2012 and what’s next. Check out the article below!
2012 was a big year for Kat, mainly due to ‘Smash’. It was probably a bigger boom to her career than anything else before it, perhaps as big as ‘American Idol’, or maybe even bigger. A couple of her movies were released, but they were pretty minor events compared to Smash.
‘Shark Night’ was released on DVD and Blu-ray on Jan 3, grossing about $2.7 million. The movie’s final worldwide theatrical gross was $40 million. Continue reading

Interview: Katharine & company talk season one of ‘SMASH’
Click here to check out a fantastic interview from The Daily Beast regarding the first season of ‘SMASH’. Involved in this write-up is Katharine as well as behind-the-scenes forces such as NBC president Robert Greenblatt, writer and executive producer Teresa Rebeck, and more! A lot of interesting topics are covered so it’s definitely a good read!
“[Karen Cartwright, Kat's character] definitely didn’t come out of nowhere, and I can relate with that,” said McPhee in an interview. “I have gone through a lot of agents in the last five years because of various reasons: just build my résumé, just get me a fricking job. I understand that we have these challenges. Some people are not a big enough star or too big of a star or they don’t want somebody coming from a reality show … Even if I didn’t have Idol, I’d have some other thing that someone would want to pigeonhole me into.”
