“I’m sick of taking the high road… it sure gets lonely up there.”
So begins Kate Burkart’s “Faith To Fall”. The challenge: how to keep the faith and not take a fall?
It’s that kind of figurative thinking-out-loud that inspired the eleven original songs on Kate’s debut album, which was released in May 2010. Her songs find their roots in Americana, country, folk and singer-songwriter genres, with influences from such personal favorites as Lucinda Williams, Blaze Foley, Mary Gauthier, Townes Van Zandt, and a little Lisa Germano too…
Her writing is direct and introspective, with a voice that combines strength, sweetness, and above all – honesty. The band includes Ron Bruder (guitar), and Greg Van Ess (drums)…and of course, Kate on bass and lead vocals.
Originally from Boston, Kate found her way to the San Francisco bay area in the late 90s. She recorded/gigged/toured with Berkeley-based Famous Last Words, until forming her own band and releasing her original songs on “Faith To Fall” in 2010. Her six song EP, “Save Me a Seat” (produced by James DePrato) was released in Oct 2015.
Kate also created and hosted the acoustic series “Under the Covers” – 3 musicians covering 3 musicians in rotating sets. See the Gigs page for upcoming shows…and thanks so much for visiting!
