"The singer-songwriter put together a stunning 4-tracks of gypsy-folk that displays Latin to Jazz and acoustic influences for a result that will make you want to watch Chocolat again."
"The production and the vocals are both stunning and perfectly fit the niche Kate created for herself. Her agile vocals intensify the lyrics with an intricate yet precise delivery that will enchant you"
"Senseless is stunning. It sounds like Older by George Michael and Fiona Apple’s Tidal had a baby. The lyrics are never boring or obvious"

Eclectic singer-songwriter Kate Thomas released her fiery, smoky and rustic Debut EP 'THE LION'S RAW' on 20 October, 2017.
Kate Thomas is an eclectic singer-songwriter based in London with influences from jazz and world music. Kate traveled the world for many years with a backpack and guitar in tow and has performed in multiple genres including folk, gypsy, latin and jazz; all of which you can now hear in Kate's music.
In anticipation of this upcoming EP, PRS for Music supported Kate to attend the ASCAP Expo in LA, through the International Showcase Fund. 'Ginger Beer' from the EP was recently featured on TV on London Live and back in 2014 Kate was a finalist in the Battle of the Bands competition at The Boisdale. Kate has also played at The Brentwood Festival on the bill with UB40 and was invited to play at the RARE Jazz Festival last summer, on the bill with Saxophonist and BBC radio 2 broadcaster Leo Green.
Until now Kate has been a solo artist, but excitingly for the EP and beyond Kate is now working with jazz and world fusion musicians, so expect this debut to be an eclectic one.
