Katie Puckrik: Yacht Rock

: The luxury pop-soul soundtrack to your imaginary millionaire lifestyle. Katie Puckrik unabashedly celebrates the classic smooth rock of the '70s and '80s; featuring the likes of Steely Dan, the Doobie Brothers, Hall and Oates and Robert Palmer. The sounds are escapist, soul-inflected, studio musician-injected, and burnished to a high sheen with massed harmonies and a reckless deployment of saxophones and shimmering chimes. No longer derided as yuppie cheese, Yacht Rock is enjoying a reappraisal by a new generation of music lovers inspired by the genre's sonic sophistication.
