Up Close and Personal
We’re so happy to have Kate back on stage again this year. Hailing from The Ganaraska Forest, horse trainer turned singer/songwriter, Kate Boothman, emerges with her sophomore record, My Next Mistake, on April 20, 2021.
“My Next Mistake gathers the reins after a series of stumbles. Forever knowing that you’re bound for glory, but never sure if you’ll get there on time.” Recorded at producer, Thomas Knox D’Arcy’s, Taurus Recording, over 2 snowy weeks in January, 2019, Kate and Thom made what they referred to in the studio as a “massage rock” record. “My Next Mistake is a really relaxing record about sex, drugs and rock’n’roll.” Writing as they went, Kate and Thom’s life-long friendship enabled them to tuck into their shadows. This provided them with instant fodder for the moody narrative that Kate delivers as part prayer, part animal, and entirely her own.
“ Some people write their best songs when they think nobody is listening. This record is full of them. And now I can’t stop listening, it’s that good.”- Kathleen Edwards
“ Kate’s songs are wonderful. They seem to come from a very real place without any pretension and with melodies that are completely her own.”
– Ron Sexsmith
Kate has chosen long-time friend Emilie Mover to open the show. Says Now Magazine, “Local songwriter Emilie Mover takes the long view of heartbreak on her fourth solo album and Nevado debut, Mighty Time. But despite the fact that almost every song concerns either heart matters or the passage of time (often both), the resulting record is far from a bummer. Mover’s a laid-back, melancholy singer, but the varied arrangements bring out the whimsy in her songwriting: reverby synth-pop brushes up against piano ballads, upbeat pop rock tunes, psychsoul and hints of doo-wop. The album closes with two songs that include a male perspective: a duet with Lefeuvre called Wasted Time and Only Him Or Me, a Townes Van Zandt cover that Mover makes her own.”
