Kate Westbrook’s GRANITE is inspired by her love of Dartmoor and its granite quarries. Her text conjures up the mythical figure of a quarry worker, - labour, love and death in the vast Dartmoor landscape haunted by the absence of the curlew’s cry. Kate’s astonishing vocal range, and strikingly original lyrics are matched by Mike Westbrook’s genre-busting score and the outstanding and inventive playing of Kate’s new group THE GRANITE BAND.

Dr. Bert Noglik broadcaster and producer - I'm very impressed by the poetic dimension, the depth, the play with sensual experience and metaphoric associations, as well as by the variety of musical approaches, never losing a common ground.


Sid Smith the Yellow Room - An ace song cycle with a varied & versatile sound featuring forays into rock & blues with Kate's persuasive voice as guide.


Viv Goodwin-Darke musician - Kate and Mike Westbrook's 'Granite' is, from the first phrase, an exciting journey - prog friends, give this a listen! It's gritty, rocky, tender. It wears a loose jazz overcoat, the rest of the outfit is both 'prog' eccentric and formally smart!
