    Uplifting yet heartbreaking, inspirational yet wandering, Stronger follows Kate Earl’s passionate soul as it embarks on an enlightening voyage of life and love. Influenced by the lyrical brilliance of Brett Dennen, Earl resonates the raw, folksy sound of iconic poetic muses (think Linda Ronstadt on “California,” early Joni Mitchell on “Stronger”) while infusing a rustic pop-rock/indie vibe all her own. With this release Earl emotionally expands her artistic boundaries as a hopeful, free-spirited American Girl searching for abandoned compassion (“Raven”). A lyrical journey backed by catchy acoustics and crisp, soothing vocals, Earl eventually discovers some life obstacles are simply “Not the End of the World.”
