Kates has just finished putting the final touches on her third album, Souled, which is slated for a Fall 2014 release. On the new album, Kates reunites with Melchor, an award-winning producer who also produced her first album, The Unexamined Life. A critical success, The Unexamined Life earned rave reviews from national and international press.

The new album, Souled, is an ethereal reflection on life, love, longing, and Los Angeles. Souled's thoughtful lyrics showcase Kates' sultry voice and genre-bending arrangements. Kates' smoky vocal stylings draw comparisons to Fiona Apple, Cat Power, Norah Jones, Regina Spektor, and Tori Amos, and yet her sound remains uniquely her own. The subject matter on the album was inspired by everyday life - from frustrations with the City of Los Angeles` Parking Violations Bureau to the political upheaval in the Ukraine to Kates` search for her missing cat (who is safely back home!).
