Well, hullooooo there. It’s been an exciting few days again, right enough.
‘Yes It Is’ entered the iTunes Alternative Chart at #44 which made my week and ‘Song to the Siren’also made an appearance at #166. One reviewer even called this release ‘a double A-side in the truest sense.’
I will most definitely take that!
That’s me all done for 2021 – for those of you enquiring, I can categorically assure you that there will not be a Christmas single.
My next project is the album. A proper Kate solo effort. Yikes. I am not going to use anything that has gone before, so literally nothing has been written yet, musically or lyrically, I’m challenging myself to get the instruments back up to scratch (accordion and guitar). Most of the people I work with these days are proper professional musicians who honed their skills in their teens and then never stopped, they kept playing daily throughout their 20s and 30s to get to the level they are at now, where the instrument becomes an extension of the self. I, on the other hand, probably let my own skills slip a little during my 30s, I was busy teaching languages and giving private lessons but somehow didn’t manage to make the time to really keep my own skills up at the level I would like. So, this winter will be the winter of practise!
Don’t hold your breath for this album, I’m aiming for 2024. I want it to be the best it can possibly be.
I actually just wanted to let you know that there are a couple of new interviews up on the reviews page for you to have a giggle at and if you haven’t heard the new releases yet, please do follow the link over to your favourite streaming service and, if you like what you hear, you can grab a copy from Amazon or iTunes.
It’s been a wild ride this year (just the way I like it) so here’s to 2022 and whatever excitement she may bring!
