Album Notes
This CD is available at many online retailers, including iTunes.

Singing professionally since her teens, Kate Fenner came to New York from her native Canada 9 years ago. Working primarily with her long-time musical collaborator, Chris Brown, they have released four studio albums, "Other People's Heavens", "Geronimo", "O Witness" and "Go On", have toured with BB King, the Barenaked Ladies, Ani DiFranco, the Tragically Hip and Sarah Harmer, often contributing to their recording projects and performances.

"Horses and Burning Cars" marks Kate's solo debut. It was recorded with the help and guidance of Tony Scherr (of Sex Mob, Jesse Harris and the Ferdinandos, Bill Frisell's trio and his own eponymous band) at his studio in Brooklyn, New York. Other contributors include Chris Brown on Wurlitzer and organ, Don Kerr (Ron Sexsmith) and Kenny Wolleson (Tom Waits, Jesse Harris) on drums.

Kate says: "The songs are a bit about broken hearts, a bit about loss, a bit about contrition, a bit about poets, a bit about fires. They hope to be love songs and songs of disguised hope."

Norah Jones had these kind words to say about Kate: "She rocks ... she's one of my favourite singers to go hear in NYC."

Bill Stunt on CBC Radio One's Bandwidth program says "Horses and Burning Cars" is an "amazingly artfully-crafted work." Kate was nominated 'Artist of the Week' on the show, joining other talents, including Kathleen Edwards, Sarah Harmer, Ron Sexsmith and Emm Gryner.



to write a review


poetry and voice destroy me
The poetry that permeates this album and its delivery unmake me. I finally begin to understand what Helen Scarry was talking about in On Beauty and Being Just when she explains the de-centering nature of beauty. This album displaces me, awakens my compassion.


She'll take you there and back
You feel her emotion. You hear her soul. The song Twin Griefs will tear you apart. This CD is one of the most poetic and beautiful musical explorations I have taken.

This is my my new "get in the car and drive to nowhere" CD.

Shane Yensan

Amazing! A cd that needs to be heard.
It's one of the most original cd's I've purchased in a long time. Her lyrics are incredible. In Your Good Name and Twin Griefs are just amazing.


Great songwriter great lyrics
Kate Fenner’s lyrics remind me of no one else's. They're original, evocative and leave you needing to know more. About sarah and america; about complicated dreams and mustangs. What a lovely, soulful cd this is

radio FEDRA

the bigest hope for these year !
Radio FEDRA from Serbia and Montenegro chose Kate Fenner as the bigest hope as musician for 2004 year ! It is becouse of briliant "Horses and burning Cars" albom from 2003...Her voice is like love lost in the mist. Several songs are real hits and listeners can just to push repit button and to enjoy again and again...

There's Nothing Sweeter, More Gentle, and Edgy.
Following Chris and Kate to the Knit and Living Room, (et. al.) in NYC is such a pleasure; the highlight of my week. Seeing Kate Fenner's solo career blossom is quite wonderful! Kate's velvet voice and the sensitvity of Tony Scherr's guitar playing create the most moving and riveting compositions. Since I had heard "The Mustangs" live debut at the Living Room, I've been dying for it to come out on disc! It is now here! Buy it!


Wow :)
Excellent CD. Really makes you think. Good for listening to with the top down.
