Editorial Reviews

Grand Central fans will certainly know the voice of Canadian chanteuse Kate Rogers as the sultry tones that illuminate such tracks as Aim’s ‘Sail’ and ‘The Girl That Fell Through The Ice’, and Rae + Christian’s ‘Not Just Anybody’ amongst others, but few know that there is a whole world of Kate Rogers out there just waiting to be discovered.

Kate’s debut album St. Eustacia, is a blindingly refreshing, and a magical insight into her world that should soon be cherished as a debut that transcends the constraints of the singer-songwriter genre.

Each listen reveals another bewitching moment that should see Kate soundtracking your dusky cinematic moments, sitting amidst today’s radio playlists or running through your head. Many may be surprised by the confidence and songwriting finesse displayed herein, but this record has been a long time in the making.

Rich in emotion and musical acumen, St. Eustacia has the ability to move listeners into a melancholic world of possibilities. St. Eustacia was recorded at Ape Studios, which is inspired by classic studios such as Motown, Sun Studios and Abbey Road. With an emphasis on analogue recording using equipment mainly from the 1940's -1970's, and reputedly recorded on the same Helios desk as The Who's Who’s Next and Quadrophenia, the resulting album sounds anything but dated, instead barriers have long been cast aside, resulting in a bustling debut that flirts between, stripped down folk, powerful acoustic anthems, even tripped out sparseness, electronic soundscapes and leftfield breaks, without ever getting lost in itself.

5.0 out of 5 stars soothing, soulful album July 5, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I can't believe this album had a total of one review up till now! I can only imagine it's because many of Kate's followers are also Aim fans, and Aim is I think a lot bigger in the UK than the US...DON'T LET THIS STOP YOU from buying/tracking down this fab album.

Kate Rogers' voice is quite amazing. It works well with the tracks on which she has collaborated with Aim, but is fantastic on the material here, which is definitely in a more singer-songwriter vein. In particular, where she has layered several harmonies of her voice over each other, there is a certain spine-tingling element to the songs. I find the lyrics somewhat strange but in a good way - they're not often what I expect.
Particular standout tracks for me are "Odyssey" and the last two tracks, "This Collective" and "St Eustacia". However, the album is one of those that you can put on and let the whole thing just kind of wash over you. It's one best listened to with dimmed lights and a quiet mind...

I see Kate appears to have a new album out also called "Seconds", on which there is no information here so I'll be looking (...) for more...meanwhile, if you can get your little mitts on this one, it's a gem. Fans of female voices and slightly quirky singer-songwriters, perhaps such as Aimee Mann (as I am!) should find this album a real treat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great new Album March 13, 2004
By Speedy
Format:Audio CD
Kate's first album is a great expansion from her days singing for Aim in England. This album is egdy, cool and brings a great feeling back to music. The limited release is frustrating but will improve as more people hear about the album.
