Aug. 11, 2005 -- It looks like the blitz is on for Kaci Brown.

Her first album, “Instigator,” is available in stores and online at Apple’s iTunes Music Store, AOL Music, Napster and Amazon.

Apparently, promotional efforts have been succesful -- a google.com search for “Kaci Brown Instigator” returned more than 4,100 hits.

The album got favorable reviews in USA Today, and will likely get a boost from the release of her video for the first single, “Unbelievable.” The video was shot last month in Los Angeles and is making the rounds on her website and other locations online. The video, or at least snippets of it, is also making its way to MTV’s Total Request Live, possibly as early as Friday.

The sultry singing sensation from Sulphur Springs who just turned 17 has also gotten notice as an opening act for the Back Street Boys, with whom she is presently touring. After a stop in New York, the Buffalo News wrote that her “high energy captivated the audience” and compared her music and dance moves to “the mid-’90s then-young-and-innocent Britney Spears.” (Seventeen magazine also printed a favorable review of Brown’s album that also brought comparisons to Spears.)

Additionally, she is getting a lot of support from her fans. The forums on her website (www.kacibrown.com) have been buzzing in recent weeks. Also, myspace.com site has been put up (http://groups.myspace.com/kacibrown) with information and links about the young singer.
