Kate Voegele

BandPopSinger/Songwriter

Sounds like Sheryl Crow mixed with elements of classic rock and blues inspired pop.

Biography

She has been recognized as one of the premier pop singer/songwriters in music today. And, after showcasing for several labels, Kate Voegele has taken the next step in her young career, signing with Myspace Records in October 2006.

Immediately after inking the deal with Myspace, the talented Cleveland native stepped into the studio to record her debut album with renowned producer Marshall Altman (Matt Nathanson, Marc Broussard). The 12 track album combines the acoustic soulfulness of Kate’s influences like Patty Griffin and Joni Mitchell, with the pop/rock feel of Sheryl Crow and Michelle Branch, all while maintaining a level of musicianship and lyrical originality that is unusual in today’s music scene. The record is slated for a spring ’07 release.

With a voice twice as big as her stature, the 20 year old Voegele has dazzled audiences over the last two years with a dynamic live show, which compliments her stellar songwriting abilities. Her live resume consists of spots at Summerfest, SXSW, two consecutive Farm-Aid concerts, and dozens of club shows at venues including The Bitter End and House of Blues. Kate was also recently chosen as a finalist for the New York Songwriter’s Circle, where she performed during CMJ, and was awarded first place out of over 4,000 applicants.

Currently a sophomore in College, Kate has already experienced more than most musicians could dream of, but is by no means content at this level.

Additional accolades for Kate include earlier this year winning the USA Songwriting Competition with her song “Only Fooling Myself,” as well singing the National Anthem at both the Cincinnati Reds and New York Knicks games. Kate has shared the stage with musicians that include Dave Matthews, John Mayer, The Wreckers, Howie Day, John Mellencamp, Mindy Smith and Jamie Cullum.

Lyrics

Only Fooling Myself

Written By: Kate Voegele

Only Fooling Myself (Kate Voegele)

I stop to catch my breath - And I stop to catch your eye
No need to second-guess - That you’ve been on my mind
I dream days away, but that’s okay -
It’s like I want to hear a silent sound - And then hold it in my hand
But a rose won’t blossom from a ground - Of desert sand, but I like to pretend that

One day I’ll turn around - I’ll see your hand reach out
I’m only fooling myself, oh, - But maybe when you smile
It means you’d stay awhile - Just maybe you’d save me now

Well, now it’s etched in stone - That I can’t survive alone - You have the missing piece
That I need so desperately - Yes, I slip away to a day that’ll never come
It’s like a splash of water to my face - When I suddenly realize - That you could never find a place
For me in your eyes, and I don’t know why I keep thinking

One day I’ll turn around - I’ll see your hand reach out
I’m only fooling myself, oh, - But maybe when you smile
It means you’d stay awhile - Just maybe you’d save me now

It’s love in disguise - I’m lost in your eyes - I’m lost in your eyes

One day I’ll turn around - I’ll see your hand reach out
I’m only fooling myself, oh, - But maybe when you smile
It means you’d stay awhile - Just maybe you’d save me now - Save me now
Just maybe you’d save me now

Top of the World

Top of the World (Kate Voegele)

Out of the corner - Of my tired eyes, I’m not surprised
It’s now a quarter past too late, - Nothing new, it’s no case out of the ordinary
I’m so very wrapped around your finger this time - Oh, won’t you give me awhile to unwind?

You’re on top of the world - And I’m just waiting, making up your excuse
You say that love’s tough, are you sure? - Ain’t it just a piece of cake to make me look like a fool?
You're on top of the world and if you're thinking I've been blinking while you're breaking the rules, don't that make you the fool?- you're on top of the world

You’re like a splinter - Just killing me slowly from inside
The piercing winter is so much - More inviting than the stare in your eyes
One heavy cinderblock, like a rock - You’re just staying, weighing, breaking me down
I’m crying out, you don’t hear a sound

You’re on top of the world - And I’m just waiting, making up your excuse
You say that love’s tough, are you sure? - Ain’t it just a piece of cake to make me look like a fool?
You're on top of the world and if you're thinking I've been blinking while you're breaking the rules, don't that make you the fool?

Hope I’ve lost enough to win you back your prize - To put you up sky high, get your pride back to its familiar place
And I hope it’s cost enough of my dear, precious time - To lift your spirits, spark your smile

You’re on top of the world - And I’m just waiting, making up your excuse
You say that love’s tough, are you sure? - Ain’t it just a piece of cake to make me look like a fool?
You're on top of the world and if you're thinking I've been blinking while you're breaking the rules, don't that make you the fool?-

You’re on top of the world - And I’m just waiting, making up your excuse
You say that love’s tough, are you sure? - Ain’t it just a piece of cake to make me look like a fool?
You're on top of the world and if you're thinking I've been blinking while you're breaking the rules, don't that make you the fool?- don't that make you the fool?- You're on top of the world - sitting on top of the world - on top of the world - sitting on top of the world

Kindly Unspoken

Written By: Kate Voegele

Kindly Unspoken

As high as the moon
So high were my spirits
When you sang out my name

And coming from you
It was enough just to hear it
Oh, it rang like the bells did today

But even the sturdiest ground
Can shift and can tremble and let us fall down…

Kindly unspoken
You show your emotion
And silence speaks louder than words
It’s lucky I’m clever
Cause if I didn’t know better
I’d believe only that which I’d heard

In the days of my folly
I followed your rules
Did what Simon Says to do

But I won’t let melancholy
Play me for a fool
Oh, no I’m on my way somewhere new

And as far as your lack of something to say
Well, to tell me goodbye there was no better way

Kindly unspoken
You show your emotion
And silence speaks louder than words
It’s lucky I’m clever
Cause if I didn’t know better
I’d believe only that which I’d heard

Bridge:

So don’t keep me up till the dawn
With words that’ll keep leading me on
I know much better than to wait for an answer from you

Kindly unspoken
You show your emotion
And silence speaks louder than words
It’s lucky I’m clever
Cause if I didn’t know better
I’d believe only that which I’d heard

I Get It

I Get It
(Kate Voegele/Peter Zizzo)
Copyright 2005

I couldn’t make this up
I have been outdone by my own kind
I always traded up, yeah
Now I’m a victim for the first time

And I can’t pretend I’m not over the edge

Well, well baby what do you know
You turned the tables on me, didn’t you?
My, my, my it only serves me right, now I get it
This is how hurt feels
And it’s everything they say it is

I was untouchable
Until karma crashed my party
Found out I’m crushable, oh
And I’m the only one who’s sorry

It’s unprecedented, I can’t turn the page

Well, well baby what do you know
You turned the tables on me, didn’t you?
My, my, my it only serves me right, now I get it
This is how hurt feels
And it’s everything they say it is

No, no, no don’t you go
I do all the breaking up around here
No, no, no don’t steal my show
You should be the one crying these tears

Well, well baby, what do you know
You turned the tables on me, didn’t you?
My, my, my it only serves me right, now I get it
This is how a heart breaks
And it’s all it’s cracked up to be

Well, well baby what do you know
You turned the tables on me, didn’t you?
My, my, my it only serves me right, now I get it
This is how hurt feels
And it’s everything they say it is

I Won't Disagree

I Won’t Disagree
(Kate Voegele - Copyright 2005)

Ignorance is bliss
You’d always hear me say
But at times you can’t deny
Those eyes lookin’ your way

Let me begin by saying what I mean
It’s a crime against the heart you know
To be somewhere in between

Well don’t be shy
I’ve got an open heart and hand
And I just might have to confess just where I stand

‘Cause lately you make me weaker in the knees
And race through my veins baby every time you’re close to me
Take me away to places I aint seen
They say you’ve got a hold on me…
And I Won’t Disagree

Rock a bye my baby
Don’t be blue tonight
Oh I’m on my way
And I’m gonna make it right

‘Cause I’ve got the feeling
You’ll be needing love
And of all the lonely hearts
You’re the one I’m thinkin’ of

I’ve been told it’s gonna take an iron hand
To break the mold and stand above all of the rest

Well lately you make me weaker in the knees
And race through my veins baby every time you’re close to me
Take me away to places I aint seen
They say you’ve got a hold on me…
And I Won’t Disagree

I’ll be thinking of that evening
When there’s nothing for me to do
And I’ll be wondering if by some slim chance
You’re wondering too

Lately you make me weaker in the knees
And race through my veins baby every time you’re close to me
Take me away to places I aint seen
They say you’ve got a hold on me…

Oh lately you make me weaker in the knees
And race through my veins baby every time you’re close to me
Take me away to places I aint seen
They say you’ve got a hold on me…
And I Won’t Disagree
