Wisecrackinâ homofolkie, Kate Reid has done it again. A wizardess of words and a sucker for descriptive detail, she has penned her sophomore album in true Kate Reid fashion with songs that showcase her ability to combine hilarious stories with ass-kicking affirmations. This latest project so neatly defines her ability to be funny, pissed off, in-love and serious all in one album that she is becoming difficult to pin down. Armed with a guitar, a cache of harmonicas, a smoking dose of wit and knack for charming even the straightest of crowds, this chick with a guitar is anything but.
Possessed Ellen DeGeneresâ self-effacing, stream-of-consciousness wit, Ferronâs poignancy, Aniâs politics, and Margaret Choâs ability to turn a manifesto on empowerment into riveting entertainment, Kate burst onto the West Coast music scene just three years ago with hysterical tunes like âStarving Artistâ, "Co-op Girlz" and âIâd Go Straight For Ridley Bent.â Already, sheâs become a favourite at local venues, won over media and industry professionals, played the Michigan Womenâs Music Festival, earned praise in magazines like the American lesbian glossy, Curve and done shows with one of her songwriting idols, Ferron. This summer, Kate hits the Canadian festival circuit for the first time.
Notwithstanding her penchant for leaving audiences weeping with laughter, Kate is much more than just a novelty act or a musical comedienne. An outstanding songwriter by any measure, her versatility is showcased on her latest album, Iâm Just Warming Up, produced by Adam Popowitz of Pacifika and Mollies Revenge. âNo More Missing Daughtersâ is a chilling number inspired by the story of Vancouverâs missing women, which sees Kateâs plaintive yet fierce delivery backed by just the sparest of instrumentation; âUncharted Territoryâ is a powerful and sometimes funny response to people who have told Kate she sings about lesbianism too much; âThe Cremation of Sam McGeeâ is an upbeat musical rendition of the Robert Service poem that is so contemporary you would think Service was Reidâs next door neighbour; and âDirty Girlâ is a funky love song with nary a cliché in sight.
Kate also builds on her repertoire of comic brilliance with âEx- Junkie Boyfriend,â in which a chance encounter at an intersection sets off an uproarious trip down memory lane; âThe Only Dyke at the Open Mic,â the story of an open mic night gone hilariously awry; and âEmergency Dyke Project,â a fabulously funny number about being a lesbian in the music business. At one point in the song Kate talks back to Katy Perry of âI Kissed a Girlâ fame singing:
âIâve kissed a girl and I liked it too. In fact Iâve kissed a few in my day, so how come Iâm not famous for it yet? / Well, I donât care if my boyfriend minds. Oops I forgot, I donât got one to hide behind. See, Iâm not just here for some trendy joyride.â
Kateâs charm, courage and unsinkable sense of humour endear her to audiences where ever she plays, and audience members frequently cheer and shout out to her mid song. Says Kate: âPeople often tell me that my songs move them to tears and laughter and thatâs when I know this is exactly what I am supposed to be doing.â
