Katherine Park, bewitching American dream rock singer from Alameda, California. She is best known as the vocalist for shoegaze rock group The Jumblies.

Biography

Described by orchestral conductor Julia O'Toole as "haunting, and out of this world," Park has been called a smoldering, melancholy performer with "the voice of an angel."

Park's lyrics range from standard English to Korean, sometimes using both in the same song. She has a soprano vocal range.

In 2004 Katherine was the vocalist, lyricist, and keyboardist of The Jumblies, a group founded in 1999 in Boston, Massachusetts by guitarist Mark Heng. At the time, she was 21, and had just graduated The Hartt School with a bachelor of music degree. The Jumblies have been on hiatus since 2007.

As a solo artist, she contributed to the soundtrack of several television shows and films including A|B TV, and 'Enigma'.

Katherine currently performs on the West Coast, and is preparing to release her solo EP 'Sonatine Dream' in the fall of 2012.

Katherine Park's hometown is Westborough, Massachusets. She lives with her partner, photographer Douglas Despres in Alameda, California.

Lyrics

Gone

Written By: Katherine Park, Clara Kebabian, Mike Goss, Dave Westner

How can I tell you.
The words that I have to say
Don't come easy.
I know that they'll make you cry.

Lyrics, Voice, Piano, & Synth by Katherine Park; Lyrics, Violin, Viola, Electric Violin by Clara Kebabian; Lyrics, & Drums by Goss; and Guitar, & Bass by Dave Westner.

Vodka sours destroy the hours.
Every drink another line.
In the road written is your name.
If only time would let me
Run it over for a while.

For you are here and there.
Your eyes are everywhere,
Yet when I turn around
You are gone.

Where am I?
Without you now.
Everyday I hope you call,
But you don't.
Oh, what can I say?
I hear your voice,
But no one's there.
I miss your little ways.

For you are here and there.
Your eyes are everywhere,
Yet when I turn around
You are gone.

How can I tell you.
The words I have to say,
They don't come easy.
They could push you away.

I know someday
We'll look back on today and smile.
We'll say it's for the best,
And talk for a while.

For you are here and there.
Your eyes are everywhere,
Yet when I turn around
You are gone.

For you are here and there.
Your eyes are everywhere,
Yet when I turn around
You are gone.

Promise

Written By: Katherine Park, Dave Westner

Oh, show, show me.
Down, falling down.
Soft like rain.

Oh, I’m not another.
I am my own.
I know my promise.

Show, show me.

Down, falling down.
Soft like rain.
Down, falling down.
Soft like rain.

Show, show me.
Show, show me.

All sounds by Katherine Park (Lyrics, Voice, Piano), and Dave Westner (Guitar, Bass).

'Promise' was recorded by Dave Westner at Woolly Mammoth Sound in Waltham, MA. USA on 27 Sept, 2011.
