From intimate songs sung with soft sentimental utterances, to powerful, driven acoustic rock, Tate's soaring tenor voice is equally at home in a variety of dynamic settings on his 2006 release Home is in the Stars. Tate's syncopated guitar playing and soulful voice are integrally woven using his trademark brand of abstract chords to support his beautiful melodic lines. Home in the Stars is a stripped down acoustic record consisting of some of Tate's most upbeat and rhythmic songs.
"His own unique style (think of a cross between Paul Simon and Jeff Buckley, not just in style but also in quality) hits such a level of perfection that it's hard to comprehend anything more beautiful."
