ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Kate loves to play music. She has delighted, baffled, and engaged audiences with her keyed original songs throughout the Midwestern United States, then the East, and she continues this trend in the Southeast. She currently tours out of Athens, Ga. Her music has been described as “urban fables and fairy tales” and as “comfort fusic,” and she has been compared to songwriters including Joni Mitchell, Tori Amos, Sarah McLachlan, and Alanis Morissette. She recorded her most recent album, A Girl in Winter, at WVIA studios in Pennsylvania for a public radio and television special, and through her integration of media interviews and fantastic live shows, her fan base continues to grow. Ben Gerrard of Athens’ entertainment magazine Flagpole describes a show:

On Friday night, I walk up to Hot Corner Coffee to find out what Kate Morrissey has to offer. She’s performing solo with keyboards and a little amplification. Morrissey bears a vocal resemblance to Tori Amos in sound and style, with a hint of Alanis Morissette’s phrasing. As the set progresses, though, Morrissey’s vocals escape the easy folk-rock comparisons, finding mustier, darker tones like Cleo Lane. Her songs are laced with fresh passion and devilish temptation hidden within upbeat love songs. Morrissey’s music can carry you away to the sumptuous spaces and places in her mind, while her lyrical content is enchantingly witty.

Or, more simply put by Wisconsin College Days critic Jon Allen:

In the end, it is obvious that Morrissey has talent. Armed with her piano, her voice, and her sense of humor, she is ready to take the world by storm.

Setting aside world-storming for the moment, Kate offers a calm, delightful album, the kind that melts things and mixes them around and leaves them to glue themselves back together.

Beautiful and Haunting
I loved this CD! It makes me feel warm and comforted inside but also makes me think and find my own meanings. It has beautiful melodies and haunting lyrics.

Another Quality Album
If you liked Kate's previous CD, 'An Open I', but were left wanting more - then this is the album for you. If you were one of the unfortunate ones that wasn't able to grab a copy of 'An Open I', then 'A Girl In Winter' is still a worthy introduction to Kate Morrissey and stands on its own quite well. - Give it a try if you're on the fence - you won't regret it!

Like hot chocolate on a snowy day...
If the world is stressing you out and you need a musical security blanket, look no further. A Girl in Winter's rich ballads and gentle folk-rock songs are sweet, quirky, thought-provoking, and above all, beautiful.
