Can't Get Enough - Independent, 1998



The seeds of Loveslave were sown when Brian Howell and Kathleen Heermans met in 1988 at Brevard College, where Kathleen was the only graduating voice major offered a recital that year. She bypassed the honor, choosing instead to withdraw mid-semester to enter treatment for anorexia. After moving separately to Nashville, Brian and Kathleen started dating and got married in 1992. Kathleen wrote and played in Nashville under the name Kathleen Lewis with a fantastic backup band, making an album and doing shows at the Bluebird Cafe and other local Nashville clubs. After Kathleen turned down a management deal in 1997, she and Brian moved back North Carolina and settled in Asheville in 1999. Together, they began Loveslave in 2000 when Brian added his voice and percussion to Kathleen's bluesy, intimate vocals, as well as her on guitar and keyboard.
Loveslave might add a few covers to its special brand of original music, which probes subject matter as varied as heartbreak, hope, hard-learned lessons, the need for redemption, traffic frustrations, and arrogance in politicians and scientists. Having listened to everything growing up and then spending eight years in Nashville in the nineties, Loveslave draws its rocking and smoldering sound from a lot of different musical influences, so the listener might detect strains of James Taylor, Joan Baez, John Lee Hooker, Jo Dee Messina, Melissa Etheridge, Bonnie Raitt, George Benson, or even Lenny Kravitz in a single show.
