For fans of the song and how to feel it. Kath Bloom, national and international touring artist, 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 voice is delicate and tender, yet retains that raw emotion and hard worn truths that
allows each sung word to be felt. The more you hear of Kath Bloom, the more you notice it’s not just the arresting
voice, but the power of the songwriting.
“Beautiful” is the typical response—the kind of beauty that comes from truth, musical and the deeply lyrical. There
are nogood comparisons, but if you like the deep well of Emmylou Harris, the more poignant lyrics of Lou Reed,
the joy ofMaher Shalal Hash Baz or even Joni Mitchell, you’re kinda in the right zone. In reality, she’s simply Kath Bloom:
horse whisperer, vocalist, mum, songwriter and a beautiful person. Her albums recorded with Loren Mazzacane Connors
in the 70′s/80′s are rare things, full of songs that float and melt into the ether. Impossibly beautiful and hard to find on LP,
but check the reissues from a few years ago . In the 90′s Kath’s music was famously featured in Richard Linklater’s
film Before Sunrise. Since she has been busy writing and recording to great acclaim. Two new albums in the last
few years and she and her songs where also honoured on a tribute album featuring Bill Callahan,
Scout Niblett and Mark Kozelek.”Bloom sounds like a woman who has spent years in the wilderness… An earthy,
unpretentious presence, she can snap a heart like a twig” – Pitchforkk
“Devastating songwriting.”- NPR Song of the Day
“One of the most beautiful singers ever. Heartbreaking.” -Devendra Banhart
“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 this country’s finest living songwriters.” -Andria Spring
