Since combining forces back in the late ‘70s, Kate&Paul, whether performing as duo, trio, or in full band, have covered a diversity of musical genres, from pop (SS Cargo), and progressive rock (Raven) to rhythm & blues (Tom Barth’s Rockin’NJ), country (Old No.9) and folk-rock (Quartermoon). The inspiration to write came a bit later in life, the fruits of which being the justice-intoned award-winning Earth Amber, (Buy or Die Records in 1998, reissued on gosobo records), and the more philosophical Passion Fruit (2002, gosobo LLC). (Many thanks to all contributing artists on these CDs, with special mention to Mike Esposito, Jamie Coan, Mark Clifford, and John Ginty!) Both CDs were recorded and mixed at Don Sternecker's Myxolydian Studios.
