Listen to Kate Fenner’s “The Yield” off her Middle Voice album

Aipate shares with you “The Yield”, a song by New York-based singer/songwriter Kate Fenner. The song is taken from her Middle Voice album. It is beautiful; its smooth vocals well fused with the sweet melody.

The album paints a picture of a certain period in her life when everything seemed not to be going right. You can feel her soul as she sings.

“I recorded the bed tracks for this album after being diagnosed with thyroid cancer and slated for surgery to remove it. This diagnoses itself came after a fallow period of illness and getting sober (!). I had started to write again, and wanted to capture my voice on tape in the event that something went awry in the surgery (very unlikely, but a good excuse to record). Tony Scherr, my old friend, stepped up immediately; we recorded all the beds in less than three weeks in short 3-hr sessions while my son was in school. We later added overdubs and a couple newer songs, once my voice had healed” – Kate Fenner
