Alaska born singer-songwriter Kate Earl will release her new full-length album Stronger on Nov. 19th via Downtown Records. With influences like legendary female vocalists Stevie Nicks, Linda Ronstadt and Joni Mitchell, the sound is a rootsy brand of all-American pop-rock with updated indie vibes from co-writers and producers Brett Dennen and former Dawes member Blake Mills.
If you were wondering where Kate Earl went after releasing her second album, we have the news for you. The Alaskan native gave birth to a baby boy recently and has been M.I.A. for a while. It’s all good as we are sure the “Officer” singer will be back at the beats asap.
This comes as a surprise because Kate Earl has been in my collection for a couple of years. In fact, Fate Is A Hunter spawned two hits in our heart – the Fiona Apple drab of “Someone To Love” and the DUI anthem “Officer.” But, she might be pulling some stops from the Joss Stone autobiography by re-positioning herself as a new and/or fresh artist with Introducing Kate Earl. The Alaska native, and hopefully non-Sarah Palin friend, is all over iTunes with this EP. It’s faster than her usual stuff from the debut album, but still doesn’t stray too far away from the singer-songwriter aura her fans know her for.
