Kate Leopold, Sphinx Rock Cafe, Sunday

Leopold’s Treat came into fruition in mid 2011, with the culmination of Kate Leopold’s debut EP It goes by. Vision of It goes by had recently been given a boost into reality with receipt of a grant awarded by the Regional Arts Development Fund (Arts Queensland), and a small band of musicians who were inspired by Kate’s energetic stories of life and contemplation, delivered with a twist of artistic experimental acoustic folk. Since Leopold’s Treat played together live for the first time at Gold Coast’s annual Animal Action Day this year, they have been steadily working towards a lineup of shows to launch the It goes by EP in early 2012.
For the past three years, Kate has performed as a solo artist regularly around the Gold Coast and northern New South Wales. She has received a humbling response from mixed audiences at fundraising events (Sea Shepherd, Animal Action Day), open mics, cafes, mini-festivals (Kirra Surfstock, Southern Oracle Festival) and local market days among other local music venues (Loft, Cave, Palmy Café).
As the roots of Leopold’s Treat, Kate has a voice that will mesmerise, and lyrics that will draw you in, uplifted by the sounds of bass guitar (Sarah Dern), weissenborn lap slide (Kieran Richardt), rhythmic drums (Nige Maunder) and melodic acoustic treats (Dave Honeyman). Leopold’s Treat connect with the audience through sharing stories, reflecting on intimate truths, contemplations and other somewhat intangible sources that are often somehow familiar to their audience. You are sure to walk away feeling refreshed and rejuvenated by the music of Leopold’s Treat, which is experimental in nature and has a unique country-folk feel.

See Kate at the Sphinx Rock Cafe on Sunday.
