Kate Earl

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Andrew Leahey
Formerly a homespun songwriter, Kate Earl tones down the earthiness and unleashes her inner Winehouse with the self-titled Kate Earl. This is her major-label debut -- the first record since 2006's Fate Is the Hunter secured her a spot on the indie map -- and its 12 songs are appropriately streamlined, replacing most of her debut's intimacy with something bold, brassy, and soulful.
