Leopold's Treat were featured on the front cover of the October Edition of Blank Gold Coast, a local magazine that covers life, music and all things creative on the GC. This was a wonderful surprise for me (Kate) to wake up to on my birthday - and this was just the tip of the iceberg.. i then turned to page three to find a full two-page spread with a wonderfully written article by Samantha Morris of the magazine. This came from an interview we did before a 'Bigger Than Poetry' night at Miami Marketta in September. It was also impeccably timed in the lead up to the launch of our first full length album, 'Cold River'.
Leopold's Treat are in concert pitch for full rehearsal mode, with an amazing band to help launch the album 'Cold River' on Saturday 10th October at Dust Temple on the Gold Coast. Still some tickets available and we would love to see you there - follow this link to get yours:www.leopoldstreat.yapsody.com
This is shaping up to be a very special evening for us (and hopefully you too!) - with a support performance by beautiful local trio ELLA FENCE, amongst other captivating performance artists and some live art to warm up your night!
Feeling very lucky to be surrounded by such a wonderful and supportive team and creative family. So far we have these people (and you, and probably others too) to thank for sharing the ride:
Scott French – sound engineer at Love St Studios, banjo, mando, drums
Mik Eastermann - Drums
Crick Boue - Double bass
Neil McLeod - Low clarinet, harmonica & flute
Mattie Barker - Harmonica
Sarah Dern - Bass guitar
Lani Motiekaitis - Harmonies (& the occasional drum & bass)
Special mention from me (Kate) going out to Dave Honeyman & Kieran Richardt, my brothers in music and inspiration!
Affirmations have been and continue to be such a beautiful tool for growth and reminding me of little truths. An awesome affirmation for everyday use: ‘YOU ARE powerful. You accept things as they are, free from the distraction of what could be, should be and might be.’
Thank YOU for such a warm and supportive response to our 'Cold River' single launch on the 27th August. Here's a clip of the full interview and live performance with Matt Webber at 91.7 ABC Coast fm yesterday afternoon during drive time. Greatful to be sharing in this musical journey with Kieran Richardt and David Honeyman (and EVERYone else who jumps on on and off this crazy little train). x Kate. P.S.
