Loren Kate’s latest offering, ‘Moving On’ came to fruition through a successful crowd-funding campaign via Pozible.com
, where over $16,000 was raised in 3 months from over 220 fans donating towards the albums creation. The album was produced, engineered and mixed by Aria Award winning producer, Paul McKercher (Augie March, Pete Murray, You am I, Sarah Blasko) and recorded over 10 days at Jim Moginie’s (Midnight Oil) Oceanic Studios on Sydney’s northern beaches using Jim’s vintage equipment. It was then mastered by Steve Smart at studios 301 Sydney.
The sound that unveiled was timeless, drawing parallels to folk masterpieces of the 70’s but with a contemporary twist, a true testimony to Loren’s musical influences; Joni Mitchell, Joan Baez, Carole King, Bob Dylan.
Featuring some of Australia’s finest musicians, the record includes contributions from Bill Chambers, (father of multi award winning country singer, Kasey Chambers) on additional guitars who comments,‘Loren Kate is a superb singer/songwriter. I count it a privilege to have played guitar on her amazing new album.” As well as Trent Prees on Double Bass, Charlie Jones on drums, Iain Grandage (recipient of the Sidney Myer Performing Arts Award 2012) on everything keys , Mel Robinson (Tim Rogers, John Butler, Mukti) on cello, Sarah Humphreys (ABC music artist of the year 2009) on backing vocals, Veronique Serret on Violin and a 3 second guest appearance from Loren's 2 yr old daughter.
