"Kath Bloom"

"Her unearthly, yet increasingly rugged, voice tackles a sentiment . . . in
a way that cuts away the cliché aspect and makes it honest. And then
she’ll add to it a thought that takes it beyond that level, to feel like poetry,
and then like revelation, like unbarring the secrets around us" Dave

Bio

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. Her songs will burn a hole straight to your soul.

Her music has been featured in Richard Linklater’s film Before Sunrise and was 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 all over the US and Europe including a performance at the End of the Road Festival in England.
