What They Are Saying
Blues Blast Magazine 2019
‘Slick modern blues, with funk and attitude’. ‘Look no further with Kate’s passionate voice and a band ready to back her to the max’ ‘Dave Hole delivers stratospheric slide guitar solo’s that blows the roof off’ – Steve Jones (Crossroads Blues Society)
U.K. Blues Matters Magazine 2019 – Adrian Blacklee
‘Kate is a superb singer’ ‘her vocal style is a soulful one where she is equally at home singing ballads or covering more gritty Rhythm & Blues songs. She certainly earns her stripes on the harder rocking song, Weakness, Dave Hole plays his slide to perfection, joining Matt Roberts to provide a twin guitar assault.
U.S. Steel Notes Magazine – “Rock On” Jim Allford
‘Wow! Is all I can say!’ …‘You’ll be playing this over & over again. What an epic CD, to say the least.’ ‘Kate grabs your attention with her amazing vocals. The band is very impressive. All the hooks are there. You’ll fall in love with ‘Goodbye To The Rain’. ‘Fall Down Seven Times’ reminds me of Bonnie Raitt singing one of her great soul songs’ ‘Please everyone, just a little time to check her & the band out’.
Sydney Morning Herald (Shortlist Albums) – Bernard Zuel …… ‘There’s a very good soul and R&B package here’.
Blues Magazine – Netherlands – Peter Marinus……’This album could well catch on with a fairly large audience’. ‘Goodbye To The Rain is comparable to the equally warm ‘Midnight Train To Georgia”.
Gold Coast radio – 94.1fm
