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),
