Editorial Reviews

2009 sophomore album from the Alaska-born and California-based singer/songwriter. Already a critic's darling, Kate developed her unique sound and vocal style by listening to '40s and '50s Big Band music. Though Kate's debut album, Fate Is The Hunter, recalled artists like Cat Power, Bjork and Joni Mitchell, her self-titled second album takes her sound in a bold new Indie/Pop direction. 11 tracks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love her voice and songs November 5, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Kate Earl's new CD is packed with a wide range of sounds: some fun shh-bop nods to the 60s, some soulful ballads, some torch songs. Her voice is lovely and never outdone by the instrumentals. Check out the lyrics as you listen; this girl is a storyteller. Looking forward to the next collection!

5.0 out of 5 stars Addictive August 24, 2009
Format:MP3 Music
Slick, mellow, yet oddly intense soft rock. Her melodies and rhythms are addictive. The lyrics are personal and thought provoking enough to keep one interested,... and I just like the sound of her voice. While some songs are better than others, there isn't a bad apple in the barrel, which is a HUGE difference between Kate and most other female artists in this genre. I'm truly glad I happened onto her.
Good luck, Kate, and God Bless. Look forward to more from you.

Two people that Kate Earl probable hates hearing about are Sarah Palin and Jewel as the newcomer is also from Alaska and those two are the only people to make a name for themselves in Continental US since Steward's Folly unless you are a basketball fan that knows Carlos Boozer is also from the state. Like Jewel, Earl is a singer-songwriter and no she has never spent anytime living in a car. And Earl's self titled album definitely isn't some coffeehouse fair like her Alaskan predecessor.

Kate Earl should fit in pretty well with the other female singer-songwriters of the decade with songs like Melody fitting perfectly between the latest from Coblie Caillet and Sara Bareilles, but Earl has an music appreciation that seems to date back to the girl groups of the sixties as Only in Dreams could have fit on the radio back in the sixties between Diana Ross and Martha Reeves with Earl paying tribute to doo-wop in the middle of Melody. Basically Earl sounds like Cat Power had she ever cared about pop sensibilities.

But Kate Earl is plenty diverse, besides the present day pop hook of Melody and classic sound of Only in Dreams, All I Want and When You're Ready have heavy dance beats to them. Nobody and Can't Treat Me That Way are sleek songs that could fit in at the local cabaret. Golden Street is a clap heavy jam with a great synth groove to it and Learning to Fly sounds like an updated version of The Wall of Sound. While Impossible is your token girl anthem for the album. All the while with the introspective lyrics that are as good as any of her contemporaries. Soon we may have a third Alaskan for us in the lower forty-eight to point to.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-have for you musical library! February 18, 2013

Pure voice.....lyrics and music/melodies are equally beautiful. I'm convinced true musical talent is not found on the radio, but at small venues and youtube! Thank you Amazon for supplying the inventory for us music-lovers to feed our addictions!

online and loved it. Bought the whole album and was not disappointed.

Great CD... but it was very techno-ish, which is quite opposite her first CD. But, still a good time!

1.0 out of 5 stars Not a keeper .......................................
Good songwriters get to the core of human emotions, but she can't get past the surface. And the super-heavy production and excessive echo just ruin the effect of the one good thing... Read more
