KATE WALSH (unsigned) -- We stumbled upon Kate as she was performing a two-song daytime teaser set during SXSW last week. Not sure if it's possible to fall in love with an artist after hearing just two songs drowned by talking and the outside band sound-checking, but we think we did. Kate is from Brighton and she recently completed her debut album, Tim's House, which is being released independently (at least for now) through her own Blueberry Pie label. She shares management with another TALENTfilter fave, Tina Dico. The texture of Kate's voice is reminiscent of Harriet Wheeler of The Sundays... Her songs are mature and accessible...It'll be tough for you NOT to take a liking to what she's doing as a singer and songwriter. Kate is busy touring the UK through April -- fingers crossed she comes back to our shores soon! Check the MySpace page for tuneage.
