From the Artist This CD was made when it was still hoped that Country Music could continue to honor it's roots, not stray irretrievably into shlocky pop music. It's my love song to country music. I'm a sucker for a steel guitar. I especially like Bill's Old Truck (about my friend, Bill), Going Through the Emotions (about my brother, Bob) and Hard Woman to Love (about me!!). But then, Two of a Kind is a beauty.... 'Kate is a woman of conscience who sings with a vengeance' - the rev. Lisa hunt, Nashville, TN 'Outstanding CD..intelligent, heartfelt lyrics.. an exceptional release...' Billboard Magazine 'Kate is a woman of strength with a great deal of integrity and her music reflects her conviction. She's also a babe.' Henry Paul, artist / Blackhawk 'I love Kate. I lover her music and I'll baby-sit her dog anytime'. John Jennings, artist & producer / M. Chapin Carpenter 'Wallace was once a Nashville based songwriter who didn't subscribe to the Music Row mentality of factory writing. She has a distinctive voice and style of writing that allows the songs to flow together seamlessly. Kate has a unique way of flipping into her head voice that's somewhere between a catch and a cry, and always affecting.' Neil Fagan, Performing Songwriter 'This is somebody you need to pay attention to. Her songs have wonderful melodic curves and her vocal is marvelously lustrous. Seek her out- trust me, she's a real winner.' Robert K.
