First of all, thanks so much for subcribing to my email list. Lately, I've been working very hard. But things seem to be paying off, because I have some good news!


It's offical: I'm making my first full-length album! But I could really use your help in reaching my musical goals. I've been given a great opportunity, so if you'd like to be part of this exciting time in my life, you can donate to my "make an album" fund on Kickstarter. Besides being forever indebted to you, and totally loving you, I'm offering a lot of great rewards for your sincere generosity! Without sounding too cheesy, help be a part of my musical dream-come-true, and let me give back to you in the best way I know how – through my music: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/836481988/kathryn-legendre-old-soul-debut-album


My campaign is running until 10pm on June 7. Any money that I make up to, or surpassing my goal, will be used to give back to everyone who supported my music, in the form of CDs, merch, and more. However, if I do not reach my goal of raising $3,000, I won't get any of the pledges made. 


I also know that money isn't always easy to give, so if you'd still like to help, you can share this information with anyone and everyone you know. Spreading the word is half the battle!


I hope you all have a great rest of your week, and stay tuned for more music coming from me in the summer!


"Though still on the shy side of 30, Austin newcomer Kathryn Legendre ain’t kidding when she sings about being an “Old Soul” on the title track of her full-length debut. The song opens with her reminiscing fondly about “an AM country station that my grandpa dearly loved,” and each of the 10 tracks on Old Soul — nine of them penned by Legendre — would have fit right in alongside any of the old man’s favorites. A talented graphic designer by day, Legendre proves she’s also a natural singer, with a warm, husky drawl and pleasing hint of vibrato that fits her earnest take on classic country like a pair of broken-in boots. She’s a gifted lyricist, too, on sure footing both playing it light hearted (the playful “Roy Rogers”) and heartfelt (as on the beautiful elegy “Hard Road to Go.”) With the standout “Guy,” a reverent tribute to gold-standard songwriter Guy Clark, she deftly captures the essence of the master’s gift for detail-rich imagery painted with Hem  Richard Skanse, Lone Star Music Magazine

"Kathryn Legendre is truly an old soul. Citing influences such as Loretta Lynn, Guy Clark, Linda Ronstadt and Ernest Tubb, the Austin, Texas native just released her debut album, ‘Old Soul’, and it clearly shows her roots in 10 original songs. Her traditional sensibilities and classic vocal style really set her apart and make her one to watch in Americana circles, her sass and storytelling abilities key characteristics that make her particularly impressive."  Vickye Fisher, For The Country Record

"Kathryn Legendre's a great singer-songwriter from Austin, Texas that makes country music at that simple and classic way in a modern style that we like so much on the Roots and Boots. Legendre has probably as much Guy Clark, Loretta Lynn and Dolly early in his record collection. It does not, however, her pale copy of their idols, but she absolutely can stand proudly with the guitar's neck when she performs her own songs. "Old Soul" is Legendre's debut album and is a straight through consistent and solid disc with both ballads perfect for a chilly autumn evening with a glass optional whiskey, and more action-packed articles that will get your boots to stomp intensively under your desk at work."  Roots & Boots
