Kate Borkowski presents 'Beautiful Little Fools'

With her trademark coiled wild hair and unique vocal style, Seattle's Kate Borkoswki has created a new music genre. Her debut album 'Beautiful Little Fools' brings a blend of indie-Americana, merging classic country sounds with power pop and other elements of today's best independent music.

After reaching out to Tori Amos’ mixing engineer Marcel van Limbeek in London, Seattle singer/songwriter, Kate Borkowski found herself literally staying at Tori Amos’ residence and recording additional vocals and piano (on Tori’s Bosendorfer) at Martian Engineering in Cornwall, England. Kate masterly wrote all of the tracks on her debut album ‘Beautiful Little Fools’ and dedicates one of the tracks to Tori. 'Siamroot', an anagram of Tori Amos’ name, investigates the cyclical nature of a volatile relationship, and represents an almost Absinthian retreat from life into the landscape of Tori’s songs.

‘Beautiful Little Fools’ was recorded and engineered at Garey Shelton Productions in Seattle, WA and additional recording and mixing was done by Marcel van Limbeek, between London, UK and Martian Engineering (Cornwall, UK). The album was mastered with care by the legendary Greg Calbi at Sterling Sound in New York and includes an impressive list of well-known musicians such as Ben Smith (Heart); Keith Lowe (Fiona Apple); Mac Aladdin (Tori Amos); John Philip Shenale (Tori Amos); Rosemary Banks (Tori Amos); Garey Shelton (Tingstad and Rumbel) and John Morton.
