Kate Earl has found herself. Kate re-emerges with a flourish on Stronger, Earl's debut for Downtown Records and an album sure to end up one of the year's most assured. Written and recorded with an expansive crew of well-respected Californians—including Brett Dennen, Blake Mills and some of her generation's finest L.A.-based musicians— Stronger shows off the careful development of a singular voice. Stronger also introduces a deeply thoughtful songwriter coming into her own. Life and love, hardship and hope—they are all part of the unforgettable story Kate Earl tells on Stronger. "I've been so humbled by the process of becoming who I am," she says, and now that she has found herself, you will be glad to find her too.
