From Kate Vargas' latest release "For The Wolfish & The Wandering"- Mountain Song conjures my own memories of time spent in the U.S and Australian deserts.
There's just so many amazing elements about Mountain Song - from the driving force of the opening base line - to the quintessential country garnish of the lap steel - all brilliantly tied together with Kate's smouldering vocal talents.
Kate's influences can definitely be heard in her music - just like a chiefs secret sauce - you'll recognise a few ingredients but just cant put your finger on all of it...but you'll find yourself lining up again and again to hear this gal weave her magic.
The same flavours are packing houses and festivals around the world - we can only hope we get a visit down under from her sometime soon.
