about

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.

Track Name: Moving On
MOVING ON

When I was 19, I met a handsome boy
He swept me off my feet
I was in my hometown, he was travelling
A stranger soon my lover my friend

We’d stay up all night, just to watch the sun rise
I’d fall asleep in his arms
We rode that wave together for a while
Til the wind it blew him away

Got to keep, moving on, moving on
Got to keep moving on and on
Got to keep, moving on, moving on
Got to keep moving on and on
And on

In my 79 Volkswagon, combi van, baby blue
I followed that boy to the south
I drove all night just to be by his side
So free, so young, so in love

And we made a life together
I thought he was forever
Til a dark cloud moved over our home
A light growing inside of me
You weren’t ready to live that dream
I knew, it was time to go

Got to keep, moving on, moving on
Got to keep moving on and on
Got to keep, moving on, moving on
Got to keep moving on and on
And on

When I look back now and see your eyes
They were just as scared as mine
I wish I’d seen it then
But the choices we made yesterday
No one can take away
I wish you’d held my hand
Oh I wish you’d held my hand

Got to keep, moving on, moving on
Got to keep moving on and on
Got to keep, moving on, moving on
Got to keep moving on and on
And on
Track Name: Forgotten Sailor
FORGOTTEN SAILOR

He sailed away into darkness
Into a forgotten sea
He wanted so much to be a sailing man
He wanted so bad to be free

Through storms and high water he struggled to find
A place where he could ease his mind
So he gave into misery, he gave into time
Never again he’d see sunlight

Do I bare myself to lose you again
Do I close my eyelids and pray for your return
Your days astray left me with memories that I would like to forget
That I need to forget

He walks through the streets like a ghost so unknown
Pulling at his arms the evils of this town
He begs, steals, to hold a fix in his hand
I’ll whisper my prayer for him, til the end

Do I bare myself to lose you again
Do I close my eyelids and pray for your return
Your days astray left me with memories that I would like to forget
That I need to forget

Many years passed by, that sailor unseen
No word of his boat, his suffering
Some people say he ran his ship to the ground
But I don’t believe them cause nothings been found
And I’m sure I saw him in the afternoon light
A lady in his arms sailing into the night
And his eyes were so clear, he smiled at me
My prayers were answered my sailor was free
Track Name: Speargrass
SPEARGRASS

Could we rest here a while
While that hot desert sun beats down
Could we spend some time
And dream of how it all began

Close my eyes and listen to the sounds
Women chatter and the kids are running around
Open my heart and I feel that fire burn
This is my chance to learn

Everything we need is here
Love, water, shelter and food
Time has no need here
We are living by the sun, the stars, and the moon

Close my eyes and listen to the sound
Women chatter and the children running round
Open my heart and I feel that fire burn
This is my chance to learn

So many hands have made this bread
So many souls have stood where I stand
So many feet have walked this road
And now the story is told

Kids are making boats to sail on the billabong
Someone’s cooking up a storm yeah
Kytes are flying overhead
Their wings are making shadows
Making shadows on this land

Close my eyes and listen to the sounds
Women chatter and the children running round
Open my heart and I feel that fire burn
This is my chance to learn
Track Name: Deeper Than The Deep Blue Sea
DEEPER THAN THE DEEP BLUE SEA

She loves her teddy bear and yellow fairy wings
She loves it in the afternoon when the kookaburra sings
and the ocean takes her breathe away
She takes mine

She loves when we read stories at night
She’s the last one I kiss before I close my eyes
And when I wake to the morning sun
I say a prayer for this little one

I hope that you trust me and tell me all that you dream
I hope that you know my love goes deeper than the deep blue sea
It goes right to the heart of me
Right to the heart

We play in the garden planting tiny seeds
We watch them grow into the food that we eat
Each day they get a little bigger just like her

We go for walks, we laugh and we talk
To the bugs and the beetles all crawling underneath us
She stops to watch them work and I stop to watch my girl

I hope that you trust me and tell me all that you dream
I hope that you know my love goes deeper than the deep blue sea
It goes right to the heart of me
Right to the heart

I hope I can grow you up my girl to be kind and strong
And I hope that any hurt you have my baby
Never lasts for long
And right by your side I will always be
Cause my love for you goes deeper than the deep blue sea
Track Name: Old Friend
OLD FRIEND

Rest now old friend
Save your breath
Your thoughts I can hear
Your eyes a story they tell

Your body is tired
And time’s running short
It’s ok to leave now,
you gave it all that you could

I send you my heart filled with all my light and love
And I hope, I hope

That the morning sun shines for you
And the rain falls down in the afternoon
Let it fall down like tears and wash away our fears
May the night sky be clear and warm
May the moon rise one that’s just been born
And those stars guide your way to a new day

So courageous, so beautiful, so brave
I can hear the angels now, calling out your name
I pray for your children
That they’ll understand
That you are everywhere now
You’re always a safe place to land

I send you my heart filled with all my light and love
And I hope, I hope

That the morning sun shines for you
And the rain falls down in the afternoon
Let it fall down like tears and wash away our fears
May the night sky be clear and warm
May the moon rise one that’s just been born
And those stars guide your way to a new day
And those stars guide your way to that,
Brand new day that waits for you
And I will see you, but not too soon
Track Name: Catch The Wind
CATCH THE WIND – Donovan

In the chilly hours and minutes of uncertainty
I want to be in the warm hold of your loving mind

To feel you all around me
And to take your hand along the sand
Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind

When sundown pales the sky
I wanna hide a while behind your smile
And everywhere I'd look your eyes I'd find

For me to love you now
Would be the sweetest thing, it would make me sing
Oh, but I may as well try and catch the wind

Di dee di dee di dee, di dee di dee di di dee

When rain has hung the leaves with tears
I want you near to kill my fears
To help me to leave all my blues behind

For standing in your shadow
Is where I wanna be and I long to be
Oh, but I may as well try and catch the wind
Oh, but I may as well try and catch the wind
Track Name: I Give You My Love
I GIVE YOU MY LOVE

Hold onto these hands they’re the ones that understand you
Together we’ll fly, with love on our side
Like a moth to the light I am so drawn to you
I’m stuck in your web there ain’t nothing I can do
And everything about you makes my heart sing
You’re the love of my life the joy that you bring
You open my heart, you open my heart
I never ever want this love to grow apart

I give you my love, I give it
I give you my love, come and get it
I give you my love, I give it
I give you my love, come and get it

We made a girl she’s sweet like honey pie
She is my world the apple of my eye
We met in a dream, underneath the cedar tree
Born into my arms in a cabin on a hill
And everything about her makes my heart sing
She’s the love of my life the joy that she brings
She opened my heart, she opened my heart
I never ever want this love to grow apart

I give you my love, I give it
I give you my love, come and get it
I give you my love, I give it
I give you my love, come and get it

I thought I was lost at sea
But somehow you found me
I thought my boat was sunk
But you sailed it back to safety
And when you held me on the sand
When you took my hand
I knew I’d found a home with you

I give you my love, I give it
I give you my love, come and get it
I give you my love, I give it
I give you my love, come and get it
Track Name: In Our Hearts
IN OUR HEARTS

A fire in our bellies, a dream in our heads
We won’t fall away, we’re rising up to take care of this land
We wont be defeated, its not a fight or game
Over and over and over we’ll try and if we fall we’ll rise again

Cause in our hearts there’s a burning fire
In our eyes there’s a dream that arose
Time can not break it, we will not be broken by time
To this land we’re all tied

Creatures of the sea
Those who can not speak
All roam this earth and sky
We’ll be your voice
We’ll always ask why
Cause we are all part of it
Right from the start we should’ve been
Doing our best to not make a mess
Time to clean it up
time to act with love

Cause in our hearts there’s a burning fire
In our eyes there’s a dream that arose
Time can not break it, we will not be broken by time
To this land we’re all tied

If we keep mistreating the earth then we’re heading for extinction
Its fact not fiction, got to protect the eco-systems
Its like a choose your own ending story
There’s gloom and there’s glory
We need to tread so lightly so we can see the future brightly
We all share the same dream to live in love and joy
But we get caught up thinking happiness comes from owning every toy
And its only we who can save us and only we who have the power
To make conscious choices every minute every hour

Cause in our hearts there’s a burning fire
In our eyes there’s a dream that arose
Time can not break it, we will not be broken by time
To this land we’re all tied
Track Name: Henry
HENRY

Seven years alone, his garden is overgrown
Where once she grew flowers, its now weeds and overgrown trees
Its now weeds and overgrown trees

He sits on his front porch, with tea made for one
He pours a cup, mumbles something soft
“Mary, you were my everything, and I miss you, oh how I miss you”

Slow steps to the front gate, he stands there a while
Watching the streets, the cars going by
All these people, with somewhere to go
All these people, and none that he knows

Sun sets its time to turn in, he turns on his beside lamp
Closes his eye, he lets out a sigh
With his hand on the pillow where her white hair would flow
and his body holds a shape like he was holding her close
And he dreams that she comes to him in this dark night
And she appears like an angel surrounded with light

“Henry, my love. You are my one.
You are my everything
and I miss you, oh how I miss you
and I love you, oh how I love you…
Now pull up those weeds and trim back those trees,
plant me some flowers and pour me a tea
Henry I’ve never left your dear side,
for you are my husband and I am your wife
for you are my husband and I am your wife
Oh Henry, if you ever feel alone
Just look to the flowers, the flowers you grow
And I’ll be standing by the prettiest rose.”
Track Name: So Lucky
SO LUCKY

I could live by the ocean, spend my days swimming like a fish
I could live by the riverside, buy a canoe for me and you
I could live on a mountaintop, by a waterfall, amongst the trees
Spend my days writing poetry, making cups of tea
Making babies

Don’t know where is home
Do I stay, do I go
On that gypsy road
Will you come with me
Could we pack our things and leave
and make the road our home

I could live in the country, with a garden right outside my door
I could live in the city, but it don’t suit me, I wouldn’t last long

Don’t know where is home
Do I stay, do I go
On that gypsy road
Will you come with me
Could we pack our things and leave
and make the road our home
Could we pack our things and leave
and make the road our home

Ooh, ooh, ooh, so lucky
Ooh, ooh, ooh, so lucky

I’d like to live in a house made of wood
Or made of mud, just made with love
Or in a bus that runs on veggie oil
Take the kids travelling the deserts to the shores

Or in a boat that sails the 7 seas, no electricity just glide with the wind
I’d like to live my life in love with you
No matter what we choose
Til our days are through

Ooh, ooh, ooh, so lucky
Ooh, ooh, ooh, so lucky
Ooh, ooh, ooh, so lucky
