When I was 17, I started taking electric guitar lessons. I’m classically trained since the age of 7 but I didn’t feel like it was the right path for me. I remember the first day I met my electric guitar teacher he asked me to what kind of music I was listening to. After naming a few albums he stopped me and said, "you should write down these albums and listen to them ASAP before you come back for your next class," and one of the albums was The Dreaming.

I can’t really explain how I felt when I heard it for the first time.

It came out many years before but to me still felt so fresh, interesting, deferent and most of all unapologetic.

From the first song to the last, you feel like Kate is taking you on a ride in her world that's complex, honest and bold. In many ways, Kate is a true queer artist, not bound to any “industry” expectations for a pop singer.

Her voice is strong, fearless, and wire-y - unlike any other female singers of her time.

The album is full of cut/paste samples, which was uncommon back then. Lots of back vox, synths and atmospheric sounds layered one on top the other.

She played by her own rules to create her own sound and her own dream world her way.
