My tenth release, "Brittle Season" is finally here. It has taken an entire year of writing, honing and performing these songs to bring them to you. Mitch Easter and John P from Fidelitorium in North Carolina did an excellent job getting what was in my head down to the digital, Dave at Studio B in Charlotte did a great mastering job on the fly as well. This album is markedly my best and markedly my most personal. Centering on a year of relationship turmoil, relocating to a new place, finding a new space - all these emotions swelled up to create this collection of songs. It truly has been a "Brittle" season for me. Thank you for listening to the best that has come from such a dark place. Best, Katharine
Weather finally turns to fall and that's me all over - took a literal fall walking the dang dog! Okay, so I'm pretty fine 'cept for the bruise on my right elbow and the smell of IcyHot ugh! Come cajole me this month in New York or Roswell - what a contrast, huh!!:?
Hello Reverbites...Summer is here and we are all playing all over the place. I'm looking for more bookings on the East Coast starting September 22nd through October 3rd if you're up for a visitor! Katharine
I'm back up here so fans can find me. I'm going to be very sparing on listing shows, so please go to my website www.KatharineCole.com for those. Reverbnation uses these references to put clubs and venues on the music mafia list.
...Stooges were in Fantasy this last week, so I'll be back in (when I can hear myself think, that is! HA.) end of November to finish off the new release "Touchstone" k
Well we begin mixing mid-October and as with everything good, it's worth waiting for. Thanks to Woody Simmons and Michael for agreeing to come BACK into the studio to track those last minute parts before the long mix haul. It's sounding amazing and I'm finding it hard to hold back the tracks...best, k
Two days down at Fantasy Studios with Adam Munoz at the board! Feels great to be getting started and so proud to have Dawn Richardson (Tracy Chapman/4 Non Blondes/Mental 99) and Michael Pappenberg (Petty Theft) adding to the mix. Thank you and more to come in September. I should have all new songs/tracks here by mid-October! Best - K
Well I'm working on the final selections which will be included in my new album "Rarified Air" to be recorded at Fantasy Studios, Berkeley with Adam Munoz and Jeffrey Wood, for release Spring 2013. Live shows will be in preparation for this with new material being added constantly, so no show will be alike, guaranteed!
Judgment, comparisons, self-doubt are the enemy of the artist. Sing your truth.
Do it all 100-percent or don't do it. How many times can we relearn this lesson in life? It's hard to breathe sometimes, but so easy to lay down. If life is getting easy, you're headed the wrong way. That's what I've found.
