KATE - logged on. - 9/10 at 5:59pm PT
Joel - Welcome, Kate.
KATE - hi joel!
Joel - And for our lurkers, thanks for coming, too.
KATE - yes, welcome lurkers
Joel - Just to remind everyone, we'll have a period of moderated chat first.
Joel - Then I'll open it up for everyone to log in and overwhelm Kate with questions.
Joel - So let's get started.
Joel - We know you're on a break in the JT summer tour. How are you spending it?
KATE - I am up in Mammoth Lakes with my fiance and my dog, for a few days!
Joel - Straight off the bus and onto a plane, then?
KATE - no, into a car...
Joel - Ah. Okay.
Joel - So tell us about the summer tour so far.
Joel - What's it liking doing this kind of tour?
Joel - what's it like, that is
KATE - it's been different with some different players, singers...but good and fun
Joel - For those who may not be as familiar with Kate's career, she's been touring and recording with JT for quite a while now.
Joel - How long have you been with JT?
KATE - 13 years and counting
Joel - And how did you first hook up with him?
KATE - I was hired to do a show in Japan for earth day, he was featured, I was singing bacup, he asked me to that tour
Joel - You weren't new to big tours, though, right?
KATE - back-up, I mean!
Joel - Who else have you toured with?
KATE - I had been touring already for other artists, Geroge Benson...
KATE - Shawn Colvin, k.d.lang
Joel - Some of them have since repaid the favor by appearing on your new CD, right?
Joel - Kate's new CD is her first solo album. It's called Map of the World.
Joel - Click above for more info about it.
KATE - shawn colving did, it was so cool of her, and james too!
Joel - Tell us about the song JT appears on.
KATE - he sang on a cover of Isley bros song, Lay Away, and on a song I wrote with my cousing, I'll Remember You
Joel - How did that come about? Was he in the studio already, or did you ask him in advance?
KATE - I asked him and he took his one day off in Nashville to do it...pretty cool boss, huh?
Joel - For anyone who hasn't yet seen it, you'll find a lengthy interview with Kate here: http://www.james-taylor.com/features/markowitz
Joel - Not too bad at all.
Joel - Are you planning to do any solo touring for the CD?
KATE - as bosses go, he pretty much wins the award of best there could be
KATE - I'm planning some promo shows at first in LA, Nashville and NY...if all goes well!
Joel - Great. We'll watch your web site for news on that.
Joel - Just click Kate's name at the top to visit her web site, folks.
KATE - yes, i need some hecklers
Joel - So back to the CD. Do you have a favorite track?
KATE - luckier girls
Joel - Tell us about it.
KATE - and pride and vanity, first single
Joel - Do you expect we'll be able to hear it on the radio?
KATE - oops, luckier girls is a song that is pretty personal, and shawn sang on it too, and it'skind-of rock which is fun for me
KATE - it's playing now on staions across the country, somewhere other than LA, which has lost so many of its good stations
KATE - my typing is really bad, I can spell, I swear.
Joel - We'll see if we can't get it requested more often.
Joel - You have your instructions, folks.
KATE - beg, steal, borrow...whatever it takes
Joel - So this summer JT tour has one more leg, then you're done. Plans after that?
KATE - will be doing those shows, hopefully, and still working as a singer like I always do
Joel - What are a few of the less obvious places we might hear you soon?
Joel - Doing any commercials of backup work on other albums?
KATE - me, or with james?
Joel - or backup work, that is
Joel - You in particular
KATE - I sing on jingles sometimes, tv stuff, sometimes movie stuff
KATE - The Agency, Dodge trucks...
Joel - For everyone else, there's a pretty extensive list of some of the commercial and backup work Kate's done in the past. If you thought you heard her voice some time, you may have been right.
KATE - I'm available for hire if there are any arrangers, composers out there....
Joel - The list is at http://www.katemarkowitz.com/
Joel - Who knows. We might have a few in the audience.
KATE - see how us LA types schmmmoooozzze for work?
Joel - Speaking of that, now is a good time to open it up and let the masses in.
Joel - In the meantime, I wanted to thank you for taking the time to talk to us, Kate.
KATE - are there really masses?
KATE - no, thank you joel!
Joel - Things will get a bit noisy in a minute, so it's important to get things said now. ;)
Joel - We'll see. Okay. I'm opening the floodgates now.

Sally - Hello
KATE - Tree, I had 2 singles in Germany as Kate Yanai....long story
KATE - Hello sally
tree - yanai -- that's pretty --- does it mean something?
Tolk - I've only seen you twice Las Cruses in 94 and San Antonio in 2001.. both great shows.
Carmine - Kate, I have been singing for many years and often wondered if I have to move to LA to get a backup singer job with someone. Is that true?
Scooby - Who are your biggest influences vocally?
KATE - Thanks told, Carmine...if you move to LA be sure to bring some money and don't come broke...then who knows
caro - do you have to do much to look after your voice (touring so much must be hard)
Sally - Love your album Kate, especially 'Light of Day'
KATE - Scooby, Shawn Colvin, k.d., James, Joni Mitchell, Chaka Khan, the list goes on and on
KATE - Thanks Sally
KATE - Touring is hard, you have to work at staying healthy...I vocalize, I try to do right...blah blah, I sound so BORING!
KATE - that was for caro, by the way
Tolk - were you part of that Troubador crowd.. Karla, Wendy, James, Carloe, etc?
tree - does yanai mean anything?
Sally - You've a beautiful voice
KATE - Tree, it is special to me for personal reasons
KATE - Sally, thanks again that is so sweet
Scooby - Kate, I know you have a website... is there a way to get updated info/gig information? Any type of Kate Markowitz list I can subscribe to?
AMY luvs JT - logged on. - 9/10 at 6:34pm PT
KATE - Told, you mean the troubadour crowd in the early 70"s?
KATE - I mean, Tolk
Tolk - yes dear
Tolk - I spell poorly
Sally - Well, I give credit when its due...I have the Live at Beacon theatre dvd, you're singing well on that...
KATE - Scooby, if you send an email to my website, I will try to get back to you and put you on a list!
KATE - Tolk, I was WAY WAY too young for that crowd back then...ha ha. really I think that was before I started singing other than in my own house
Carmine - Kate, I taped the Live by Request on A and E and you sound wonderful on that as well.I play that show often. Well done.
KATE - Sally, OK stop now my head is getting really big, NO DON"T
Scooby - Thanks, Kate! I have to run... have fun in Mammoth... Keep up the great work!

babs - hi everyone-hello kate
KATE - Sally, I really like doing Raised up Family, and Bittersweet, Travelin Star
Tolk - I'm an old fart...it seems like everybody is kickin' the bucket from my day. Losing WZ brought back memories of the early 70's
KATE - hey, babs, is this the babs I know?
KATE - Carmine, haven't heard yet, don't know!!!
Carmine - Are you planning on performing solo in the Phila. or NJ area?
babs - umm kate i wish i were but no-- i am babs from canada but its a pleasure to meet you

KATE - Babs, you too
Carmine - I can do Manhattan. Only 2 hours from me. Thanks.
KATE - Sally, yeah Shower is fun with Arnold, isn't he so amazing he gives you goose bumps?

KATE - Carmine, I'll send you gas money
babs - oh arnold is about as sweet as you can get
Sally - Being on stage have you ever had some weird experiences?
caro - all you guys gives us goose bumps. you sound amazing.really
KATE - I've learned so much from Arn
Carmine - That won't be necessary. Just bring me up to do a duet with you. I'll probably colapse on the spot.
KATE - caro thanks
babs - that is also true caro
KATE - Carmine, collapse for good reasons or bad?

fuzzwillie - It's a long story (the name): just wondering: when JT presents a new tune to you guys, do you all pretty much pick out the parts you'll sing, or does JT kind of direct you on it?
KATE - Carmine, cool, can always use that
sam - how much practice is done before a tour i have seen early and late show all great
Carmine - I learned a lot by watching JT. But I have to say, his style cannot be duplicated by anyone.

KATE - Fatfree, thanks

KATE - Nia, yeah, I miss the vineyard, haven't been in a while
