Hanging Hills - catch 'em before they move to Philadelphia

Kath Bloom has been rediscovered a few times already. People keep finding out about her arresting work. But the Connecticut-based singer/songwriter is still perhaps awaiting a little more of the attention and adulation that she receives overseas in places like England and Japan.

Bloom, 62, began making music in the '70s. She first got a taste of being rediscovered when her song 'Come Here' was used in the soundtrack of Richard Linklater's 1995 movie 'Before Sunrise.' That was 20 years ago. And then there was a high-octane 2009 tribute album, 'Loving Takes This Course,' featuring big names in the world of folk-tinged indie rock, with formidable artists like Bill Callahan, the Dodos, Devendra Banhart and Mark Kozelek contributing covers of Bloom's material. - http://www.ctnow.com/entertainment/music/hc-kath-bloom-in-new-haven-0409-20150402,0,4862089.story
