ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Important Note:

This album will be in stock next week (the first week of February). The shipment of "green" repackaged CD's has shipped from Nashville to Oregon on 1/29/09.

The changing landscape of the music industry has opened the doors wide for artists who might not have had a chance only fifteen years ago. Kayte seized the opportunity at the very beginning of the indie label movement, and has since released over fifteen albums. Having sold over a million dollars worth of recordings, Kayte stays active as a songwriter in Nashville and her songs are now popping up all over the country as she continues to defy the odds.

One of the songs on this album, “These Hands” was written by Dennis Bryon of the Bee Gees fame, and by Chris Pelcer who has most recently written songs in the forthcoming Yanni “Voices” tour. This particular song has been featured as an anthem for the Relay For Life in Bayonne, New Jersey with Kayte singing live as the survivors hold hands and sing along.

The vast crowd of incredible “Baby-Boomers” in America see in Kayte Strong the same charisma and power to melt their hearts as their own heroes Carole King , Carly Simon, and Karen Carpenter. Kayte is to this generation and genre as Harry Connick Jr. is to the Frank Sinatra culture--an authentic reincarnation of the easy-listening music from the 70's. To the new gen, she is an authentic "old school" artist.

Kayte is blessed to be adding live concert performances to her touring schedule, which can be found on her website. These are real concert venues, all supported by her indie label, grants, and her fans. Most of the venues are 200-seaters, but in April Kayte is graduating to an 800-seat theater as her smaller performances are sell-outs.

Beginning in 1995, after leaving her touring position with ITC Records and Pacific Concert Group, Kayte traveled for ten hundreds of thousands of miles by land and air for fourteen years-- winning the heart of America one city at a time. In 1999, her talent and professionalism landed her a position entertaining for Howard Alan Events, the premier Art and Craft festival company in the country, where she was one of five hand-picked artists performing for hundreds of thousands of people every month, year-round for eleven years. She reached out with her soul every weekend to the masses of people who were looking for uplifting, fresh, and beautiful music. The masses rewarded her by purchasing upwards of four hundred of her recordings every weekend. Her 2003 Christmas CD “Serene Noel” reached #96 on the independent airplay charts as a result of her incessant touring. Although Kayte has never chased airplay as a goal, she did reach her highest height yet last summer by having her music featured in the CBS series "Swingtown".

This is by far one of the greatest talents I have seen or heard in the last 20 years. I can not believe that this artist has not been signed. This artist is packed full of talent. A voice from God, a Writer, Keyboard player. Hello industry "wake up" and listen to this "Artist"

I played this cd so much that it got to skipping on certain songs so I bought another and I won't be surprised if I have to rebuy again. I have many of her cd's and have been fortunate enough to hear her singing at Art & Craft shows. The song that means the most to myself and my daughter is on her CD "Larger Than Love" and the song is "Three Words Away. Katye has the best voice and the best songs. Keep up the good work! Hope to see you soon.

Marie Dougherty

This CD is just wonderful to listen to.
This is the best sound i have heard. You get right into the beat on some songs like BIg Blue Sky. The words are eacy to uinderstand and sing to.. Thank you so much from a breast cancer survivor. These hands is a beautiful song and it brings tears to my eyes everytime i listen to it.

Evie McCord

Wonderful lyrics, music and interpretation
I loved this CD. The word and music are both wonderful as is Kayte's voice. There is a strong spiritual message ( at least there is for me) on this CD. Kayte's voice is beautiful to hear and her message in these songs is a powerful one. Kayte possesses all the traits of the great singers from the 40's and 50's, but she is also truly up-to-date. Thanks, Katye, for something sweet, melodic, powerful,thoughtful, and understandable in this time when most of the music we hear is just loud, negative noise And I don't have to turn it off when the grandkids are in the car!!!

DD from Florida

I think Kayte is fabulous and I can't believe she isn't signed up with a major r
This CD is awesome and I absolutely want to share this with my family and friends. I like being able to hear the words and the meaning of the song fills my heart with joy.
