about

Eclectic singer-songwriter Kate Thomas delivers a fiery, passionate, smoky, raw sound on her debut EP

"THE LION'S RAW" was released on 20 October 2017. Don't sit back and don't relax! Be prepared to go on a journey as Kate uses her voice to explore a range of textures and genres. With stripped back production these songs are raw, rustic and sound like they are being performed straight into your ears.

Kate Thomas is an eclectic singer-songwriter based in London with influences from jazz and world music. Kate travelled 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.

And this is what they are saying about it ...

"Where the energy of rock blends in with the intimacy of folk"
- A&R FACTORY

"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"

Track Name: Stone Pillow
Did you really think, we could spend a lifetime like this?
This isn’t love to me, this isn’t love to me. Oh
Begging you to care, what can I do? when you refuse to be there
This isn’t love to me, this isn’t love to me. Oh

I loved you still, I stood by your side
Oh and the pain I would feel, I would bury inside
Stone Pillow, Stone Pillow, Stone Pillow
I said No, no, no.
I said No, no, no!

Oh I loved you still, I stood by your side
and the pain I'd feel, I'd bury inside
This isn’t love to me, this isn’t love to me.
Oh I loved you still, I stood by your side
and the pain I'd feel, I'd bury inside
This isn’t love to me, this isn’t love to me. Oh

I loved you still, I stood by your side
and the pain I'd feel, I'd bury inside
This isn’t love to me, this isn’t love to me. Oh
I loved you still, I stood by your side
and the pain I'd feel, I'd bury inside
This isn’t love, to, me.

All the questioning, but you’re still thirsty for more!
This isn’t love to me, this isn’t love to me.
Why did I think? All this pain means you love me more?
This isn’t love to me, this isn’t love to me.

Oh I loved you still, I stood by your side
Oh and the pain I would feel, I would bury inside
Stone Pillow, Stone Pillow, Stone Pillow
I said No, no, no.
I said No, no, no!

Oh I loved you still, I stood by your side
and the pain I'd feel, I'd bury inside
This isn’t love to me, this isn’t love to me.
Oh I loved you still, I stood by your side
and the pain I'd feel, I'd bury inside
This isn’t love to me, this isn’t love to me.

Oh I loved you still, I stood by your side
and the pain I'd feel, I'd bury inside
This isn’t love to me, this isn’t love to me.
Oh I loved you still, I stood by your side
and the pain I'd feel, I'd bury inside
This isn’t love, to, me.

Oh be ...careful what you say, kept on my toes with all the secret games you play
This isn’t love to me, this isn’t love to me.
So did you really think, I would spend a lifetime like this?
This isn’t love to me, this isn’t love to me.
I said No, no, no.
I said No, no, no!

Oh I loved you still, I stood by your side
and the pain I'd feel, I'd bury inside
This isn’t love to me, this isn’t love to me.
Oh I loved you still, I stood by your side
and the pain I'd feel, I'd bury inside
This isn’t love to me, this isn’t love to me.

Oh I loved you still, I stood by your side
and the pain I'd feel, I'd bury inside
This isn’t love to me, this isn’t love to me.
Oh I loved you still, I stood by your side
and the pain I would feel? I would bury inside.
Track Name: The Kiss
And there you are my lover, simply standing there.
Your eyes, your lips, your beauty, the wind blowing in your hair.
I can’t look you in the eye, do you feel the way I do?
I wanna touch you badly, I wanna love you madly.

Ayaaaaaaaaaaaa
Ayaaaaaaaaaaaa

And then the moment comes, our bodies meet as one.
The magic moves from head to toe.
Don’t move away don’t let me go!
I look you in the eye I know you feel the way I do.
(I)want you t’touch me badly, I, I’m loving you so madly!

Ayaaaaaaaaaaaa
Ayaaaaaaaaaaaa

And then one day it changes, I can’t remember when?
Your gentle touch is gone and I can’t do this alone.
You won't look me in the eye, you don't feel the way I do.
I want you t’touch me badly, I, I still love you madly!

[Instrumental] + [Vocal Adlib]

Ayahoooooooo, Ayahoooooooa!
Ayahoooooooo, Ayahoooooooa!
Yaaaaaaaaaaaa, Yaaaaaaaaaaaa,
Yaaaaaaaaaaaa, Yaaaaaaaaaaaa
Track Name: Senseless
Her hands are looking old now,
Yet love they never knew.
The cold bodies, she has tasted,
The love just, never grew.

Her eyes are drying up now,
They gaze longingly around.
She pushes, she pulls,
Oh she hopes, oh and she fools
But in the dead,
She is drowning.

Longing for someone,
Oh but there’s no one.
Longing for someone to hold.
She shakes and she cries till,
All her tears dry and
Waits for the stillness to
Prevail.

Longing for someone,
Oh but there’s no one.
Longing for someone to hold.
She shakes and she cries till,
All her tears dry and
Waits for the stillness to
Prevail

Her ears are blocking out now,
The same conversations. Flow.
She knows that she can’t force it,
The heart just knows what it knows.

Her scent is left behind now,
Who she is, no one will know.
She pushes, she pulls,
Oh she hopes, oh and she fools,
But in the dead,
She is drowning.

Longing for someone,
Oh but there’s no one.
Longing for someone to hold.
She shakes and she cries till,
All her tears dry and
Waits for the stillness to
Prevail

Longing for someone,
Oh but there’s no one.
Longing for someone to hold.
She shakes and she cries till,
All her tears dry and
Waits for the stillness to
Prevail

Her hands are looking old now,
Yet love they never knew.
The cold bodies she has tasted,
The love just, never, grew.
Track Name: Ginger Beer
And in your dreams we’ll meet again
I’m by your side when you feel broken
And when you smile my spirit's woken
And keep on singing with the sun

Only we will understand
Only we will understand
You saw the boy under the man
You saw the boy under the man

You were the first to hold my hand
And always there when I felt broken
I’m not in form I am in soul
This special bond will never go

Only we will understand
Only we will understand
You saw the boy under the man
You saw the boy under the man

[INSTRUMENTAL]

Remember me when music plays
Those happy days we spent together
Our parting was so very sudden.
But I will meet you at the door

Only we will understand
Only we will understand
You saw the boy under the man
You saw the boy under the man
