KCRW Presents: Cate Le BonKCRW

Welsh singer Cate Le Bon first caught our attention with her song "Puts Me to Work," and her live session in our studios brought more of her talents to light — particularly her guitar playing. Le Bon's cool, laid-back vocals evoke the popular folksingers of the late '60s, but with her own unique oddball touch.

In this performance from Morning Becomes Eclectic, Le Bon treated us to two not-yet-released songs, "Seaside" and "That Moon," which will be included on an upcoming EP.

Set List

  • "Fold The Cloth"
  • "CYRK"
  • "Falcon Eyed"
  • "Puts Me To Work"
  • "The Man I Wanted"
  • "Ploughing Out, Part 1 & 2"
  • "Seaside"
  • "That Moon"
