ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Kathleen Pemble is a relative new-comer to the singer-songwriter field, but since she made up her mind to start playing "smokin' folk" four years ago, a noteworthy amount has been achieved; she has been featured twice in the The New York Times in the past three years.

Kathleen has been playing at venues varying from The Knitting Factory, The Cutting Room and 'Live on Stage' at the World Trade Center concert series in NYC, to The Towne Crier in up state New York, to The WaterColor Cafe in Larchmont, NY to The Peekskill Coffee house in her home town. She brings extremely diverse musicality and relentlessly honest writing to every performance.

The New York Times said, "...Ms. Pemble started singing, and the ambient noise in the café disappeared as if by magic". A recent article in The Gazette declares: "Each of Pemble's songs has its own sparkle, whether from an arrangement that fits the lyrical content perfectly, or from a tricky tempo that keeps you leaning forward, and so her sets, full of variety and little surprises, always seem too short." More from the Gazette..."her art on the other hand, is born from a great deal of sophistication and style." ..."she crafts singular, gem-like songs".

Kathleen released a live album in the fall of 2003 which is available at in her area at Borders Books and on CD Baby, and has just finished her first studio album, [Learning to Listen Again] with producer Billy Masters, (of the Suzanne Vega band),

intensely beautiful
Pemble shares her soul in song revealing your desires and labors in love. A masterful song writer, musician and singer.

Still Learning to Listen Again
In matters of the heart, there are no authorities, only strangers timidly yearning for each other, with perhaps a dim hope of a possible future communion. Kathleen Pemble knows such a tender vulnerability with a special intimacy. In "Learning to Listen Again", we are now given a rare chance to share in her music of deep grace and open dignity.......Kathleen's lyrical poetry of relationship approaches universal appeal, through her tenacious immersion into, and insightful meditations on, the personal truths of her own life. The instrumental arrangements and spare production treatments here, by Billy Masters, Iris Cohen and Steve Esposito, serve as a perfect match to the warm emotional exposure of these thirteen finely crafted songs.......From the wise council provided in "Theresa", to the almost Hindu view of dreaming found in "My Little Emptiness", to the doomed romance of "Nailed (Can You Hear Me Now)", we find that Ms. Pemble is clearly a woman of mature insight into the mysterious ways of love. She has a gift for expressing the delicate nuances of her soul through both her sensitive lyrics, and in the easy cadence of her vocals.......With "Learning to Listen Again" and also through her debut CD "Alive", we have the wonderful opportunity to become acquainted with Ms. Pemble's music in preparation for it's real home, which is in it's live presentation. Invite Kathleen Pemble's music into your life, you will only be the richer for the experience.

Stacy Labriola

Kathleen is a gem of a songwriter.
Like Pemble's Alive album I loved every song she wrote on this latest CD. Our favorite songwriters in this genre (Patti Griffin, Suzanne Vega, Johnatha Brookes, Shawn Colvin etc) will have to move over and make room at the table for this wonderful new talent. Pemble's beautiful songwriting , voice and guitar coupled with stellar production make this a must have CD.
