Kathleen Hoye, who grew up in Louisville, KY, began her songwriting "career" in Northern Ireland, singing and playing alongside a Belfast-based acoustic duet during and toward the end of the 1996 cease-fire. She returned to the U.S., in 1999, opening for relevant artists such as Paula Cole, Leon Russel, Gillian Welch, Patti Loveless, AJ Croce, Patti Griffin, and Iris DeMent. Her music, which has been alternately described as both vibrant and somber, has taken on many faces, influences, textures, and moods over the years.
Her first album, Delilah, was a crazy project, or in more descriptive terms "a point on a broad continuum between ambient mood music, white noise, and all-out alternative rock abandon." The lyrics are impressionistic rather than narrative, relying on archetypal imagery and the logic of dreams to explore themes of artistic struggle, addiction, release, spirit, and the solace of time. Her second project, Unbridled, is a groovy, relaxed ride through songs that "will kill you pretty" and that "linger like a sweet kiss goodbye" according to one music critic. Here the songs are about love, horses, and the value of spending time alone.
Kathleen has always been intent on making artistic expression the focus of her life. She has studied voice formally since age 13 and has performed in a variety of vocal contexts, including choral ensembles, opera, folk, jazz, blues, and (of course), rock. Kathleen is now the proud mother of a four year old girl and has directed a lot of her creative energy to raising a child who loves to make up songs, draw, sing, and dance, as well as play a mean harmonica. Her fourth record will be released in Fall 2013 and she is gearing up for a regional tour with her new band.
