Kat Goldman & Whitehorse (featuring Melissa McClelland & Luke Doucet

Who is Kat Goldman? Perhaps the mystique lies in the fact that Kat Goldman is one of Canada's best kept secrets. When she was 20 years old she moved to Boston, picked up a guitar, and began frequenting the fervent Cambridge coffeehouse scene, also becoming a regular busker in Harvard Square. In 1996 she returned to Toronto and started doing shows of her own in Toronto venues. Producer Gavin Brown heard her music and went gaga. He wanted to work with her...and so began their collaboration on "The Great Disappearing Act", Kat Goldman's coming out studio record.

We're About 9 with special guest Steph Corby

The weekly open mic at the Jahva House in Ellicott City, MD captured the attention of the Sheriff's Department not for disorderliness, but rather for regularly breaking fire codes with attendance flooding both floors of the cafe and spilling out into the street. After the open mic ended each week, the music would continue outside in the parking lot. It was in the magical location of Parkling Lot D that Katie Graybeal, Brian Gundersdorf, and Pat Klink first started sculpting their distinctive vocal harmony arrangements.
