Kath is some kind of legend. She comes from a special place where country, blues and folk are made beautifully translucent and emotive. She has a special gift - her almost supernaturally beautiful, wavering soprano is one that has to be heard, with a clear transparent moonlight quality that silences a room. Yet she retains that raw emotion that allows each sung word to be felt. She is touring with a band.
Kath made some very very... limited edition albums in the 70’s and 80’s with the amazingly (and equally dreamlike) guitarist Loren Mazzacane Connors. In the 90's Kath's music was famously featured in Richard Linklater’s film Before Sunrise.
Since then she has been writing and recording and releasing to much acclaim. She and her songs where also honored on a tribute album featuring Devendra Banhart, Bill Callahan, and Mark Kozelek. In 2010, her album Thin Thin Line was released on Mark Kozelek’s label Caldo Verde Records. Since it’s release, Kath has toured the US and Europe including a performance at the End of the Road Festival in 2010.
'Bloom sounds like a woman who has spent years in the wilderness... An earthy, unpretentious presence, she can snap a heart like a twig' Pitchfork
'One of the most beautiful singers ever. Heartbreaking.' Devendra Banhart
