MySpace Celebrity caught up with Kate Earl, where the singer songwriter talked about growing up in Alaska and working at the family gas station, traveling yearly to the Philippines where her mother is from, pushing herself as a writer by selecting from 50 songs she wrote for her record, and her dog James.
“I was really fascinated with the gospel music coming out of the south,” Kate explained. “Alaska was so far from it. I went to Atlanta and found Ben Allen, who produced Cee-Lo’s solo stuff and engineered ‘St. Elsewhere’, and he helped me write this batch of songs that were hopeful and soulful and I was trying to do something fresh but made you feel like you had been there before. It’s been a long journey but it was worth the wait. All this time I spent turning in songs. I’ve written 50 songs for this record, and I think it’s really pushed me as a writer and really shown me what I was capable of.”
Video at MySpace has since been removed.
