View all posts by James McQuiston. The two soon came together to form a creative partnership. A single mother, Bloom focused on raising her children, rarely playing shows outside of New Haven.

Loren encouraged her to play guitar and work on original songs, but Kath believes her development as a singer and songwriter came at least partly out of jealousy, frustrated at being left out of the musical process Loren was exploring on his solo albums. From the outset, the music these two artists made together was tirelessly documented, although released in quantities so minute that each artifact became an instant collectors item. In , copies were pressed of the LP Hanford, Bloom And Mazzacane , a live recording made at the Chapel Arts Center space that the three friends ran together at the time.

Another live album, Round His Shoulders saw Kath and Loren performing as a duo, with liner notes by Yale professor and folklore scholar William Ferris. Together the duo created a sound almost impossibly emotional and haunting, one that despite its ties to the past is unlike anything created before or since. One of the recording sessions was financed by prize money Kath won in a songwriting competition for a local Connecticut radio station.

So on the whole, audience response was respectful but muted. There are disturbing reports of Loren throwing unsold Daggett and Saint Joan albums into a bin in the mid 80s. Now, of course, original copies of these records change hands for huge sums. Although the two struggled to maintain their joint creativity, even forming a short-lived theatre troupe with their respective partners, they found themselves drifting apart.

Kath moved to New York, separated and then remarried, relocated to New Hampshire and then Florida, and had two more sons with new partner Stan Bronski. Loren also retreated from music for a period, focusing on other forms of writing until re-emerging in the late s, often in tandem with partner Suzanne Langille. Both artists have made wonderful and expressive music since their collaboration came to an end, but both also benefited immeasurably from their time together.

Film director Richard Linklater discovered Bloom's music sometime in the early '90s and subsequently featured her song "Come Here" in his film, Before Sunrise. Presently Bloom trains horses and plays with her band Love At Work, which includes longtime collaborator Tom Hanford and husband Stan Bronski, offering a musical tour de force of programs for children and adults, as well as playing solo shows in the Northeastern US.

Bloom has been working with children since From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Kath Bloom. Authority control MusicBrainz : fdad-4bc-bbb15f4da3db7f. Hidden categories: Articles with hCards Wikipedia articles with MusicBrainz identifiers Year of birth missing living people.

The two soon came together to form a creative partnership. This early experimental phase is documented on their first released recordings, the albums Gifts and Fields. These records were released with handmade covers in editions of no more than 50 by Loren on his label Daggett Records, named after the street in New Haven where he, Kath and Tom Hanford all lived in loft apartments.

Apparently it was a rough neighbourhood — Loren would sleep with a hammer in his bed, and the apartments were without heat, hot water or toilets. Loren encouraged her to play guitar and work on original songs, but Kath believes her development as a singer and songwriter came at least partly out of jealousy, frustrated at being left out of the musical process Loren was exploring on his solo albums.
