Kathleen Pemble is a relative late-comer to the singer-songwriter field, but since she made up her mind to start playing "smokin'' folk" three years ago, a noteworthy amount has been achieved. Featured twice in the The New York Times in the past three years; playing at venues varying from The Knitting Factory in NYC and Children''s Day, part of ''Live on Stage'' at the World Trade Center concert series, to a showcase at The Towne Crier to The Peekskill Coffee house in her home town, she brings extremely diverse music 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".
