Kath Bloom covered Tom Petty (listen), playing NYC
by Andrew Sacher
Cult folk veteran Kath Bloom released her enchanting new album Pass Through Here on Chapter Music last month, and during those sessions she also recorded a cover of Tom Petty's "Learning To Fly." She gives the song the same kind of somber, bare-bones delivery that she brings to her own material, and her unique take on it is really worth hearing. We've got the premiere of the track -- you can listen below.
The Connecticut-based Kath is also coming to NYC to play a show at Mercury Lounge this Sunday (3/15) with Erin Durant and Bop Tweedie. Tickets are on sale now. It's her only announced date at the moment.
