Album Notes
“Her influences are Lucinda Williams, Lisa Germano, and Emmylou Harris and on her debut album Faith to Fall San Francisco's and fellow No Depression community member Kate Burkart has done them proud. I've been listening to this album for a while now and after the second time through I said "Hey this woman writes some great songs!” Ed Karn, review on “No Depression” 5/24/10

“Kate’s vocal is to the fore on this album, it has an intimacy and sincerity that weaves it’s way through the tracks - this album doesn’t shout at you, it’s subtleties' and confessional style take a more measured route to your consciousness…” Beat Surrender, UK Music Blog 5/30/10

“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 singer / songwriter / bassist Kate’s debut album. The tracks span wide stylistic territory: from bittersweet and countrified (“The Most,” “State of Grace”) to British-inflected folk baroque (“Parallel Universe”) to pan-cultural polyrhythms (“Cross the Street”) and less-is-more fortitude (“Faith to Fall.”)
Instrumentation includes Wurlitzer and Hammond keyboards, Mellotron, cello, pedal steel, Taurus bass pedals, and an impressive array of vintage acoustic and electric guitars. Burkart’s songs find some of their roots in Americana, country, folk and singer-songwriter genres, with influences from such personal favorites as Lucinda Williams, Lisa Germano and Emmylou Harris.
Still, for all its lyrical and musical range, the album presents a cohesive, organic sound that’s unadulterated Kate — direct, introspective songwriting, exploring themes of love, faith, and loss. Her voice combines strength and sweetness, with
an honesty that brings the songs and the listener closer. Retaining the intimacy of the lyrics was crucial when recording her vocals, Kate says. “I wanted the words at the forefront, and to create the feeling that I’m singing right next to your ear.”
Our favorite songs work in intangible ways; they’re distinguished by a determination to acknowledge the darker edges of experience. Faith to Fall honors both the joy and heartache of life, and will stay with you… no matter what road you’re on.
