Kathy Black’s release on Waxsimile Records though intensely personal, touches the abundant truths we all share. Kentucky, Chicago, California’s bay area and even a taste of Los Angeles, are the grist for her infectious rhythms, astute lyrics and irresistible performances; all assured to please the most discriminating musical palate. 

The Band’s Richard Manuel is quoted as saying that Kathy Black was his favorite singer, while none other than the great Paul Williams, upon hearing Ms. Black’s “Kentucky”, declared her his song-writing peer. But all that may be just so many whispered words in the winds, MAIN STREET is the real statement here, try it, you wont regret it.

I feel like I needed to be at this point in my life before this stuff could come out. I don’t know why that is, but that is true. I feel absolutely that way. I feel more defined as a human.
