"'American Idol's' Kimberly Caldwell started singing at the age of five." – Interview

“American Idol” season two participant Kimberly Caldwell returns with her debut album “Without Regret,” set for release this Spring 2011. The album, whose new video “Desperate Girls & Stupid Boys,” recently premiered, is a combination of pop, dance and adult contemporary. I recently chatted with Caldwell about the new album.

Q – Thank you, Kimberly, for doing this.

A - Of course! Glad you enjoyed my music!

Q – How and when did you get involved in music?

A - I started singing at age five and haven't stopped since. I hold a record for number of wins as a Junior Vocalist on The original “Star Search” and I knew that performing would be a part of my future at a very young age. I sang in a production show in Branson, MO six days a week, two shows a day from eleven to fifteen years old. I owed to myself to really go after my dream.

Q – I got a chance to listen to “Without Regret” and really enjoy it. Congrats on the album. There’s a mix of pop, adult contemporary and dance songs throughout the entire album. How would you describe the album musically?

A - It is a very eclectic album and I love that all sides of my personality are expressed through it. There are heartbreak songs, soul songs and dance songs but the ones I'm most proud of are the ones I co wrote. I'm really lucky to have my lyrics and music on my debut album.

Q – What song on the album means the most to you and why?

A - "Say Love" is a song I wrote that hits home with me every time I perform it just like the first day I wrote it. It's very simple but has such a powerful message I think everybody can relate to. The song was such a release for me and I think music is the best therapy.

Q – Will there be a tour with the album?

A - I'm currently on a radio tour going from city to city showing love to all the listeners and promoting my single "Desperate Girls and Stupid Boys" and hope to hop on a summer tour after that. Fingers crossed!

Q – Thanks again. Is there anything you wanted to add?

A - Thank you for the support!
