about

Singer/songwriter Katie Thompson released her debut album, Tall Poppy in 2009. Since then her career has flourished under the bright lights of the international music funding site Sellaband, making her one of the fastest-ever artists to reach the $US50,000 level needed to record and release an album – and all contributed by people who love her music.


That new album is Impossible, with the first single, Good As Gold, released in January 2011. Produced in the UK at Modern World Studios by renowned British producer, Greg Haver, the album is a treasure-trove of rare and beautiful songs which blend elements of pop, folk and country.

Track Name: Impossible
Well I slap on the war paint rehearsed my smile
Think I’m ready to go another round
Looking for my Mr Right not Mr Right now
To know the difference is harder than it sounds

It’s impossible – it’s impossible

With my heart on my pretty pink shirt I jump on in never test the water
Why’d ya wanna go and do a thing like that
You say love and lust don’t keep the same company well I disagree
How can you be sure at all
It’s impossible

Well I find myself a catch the man of my dreams
I’m hoping that he feels the same
But is he looking for the one or just one for now
It’s enough to drive a good girl insane

It’s impossible – it’s impossible

With my heart on my pretty pink shirt I jump on in never test the water
Why’d ya wanna go and do a thing like that
You say love and lust don’t keep the same company well I disagree
How can you be sure at all
It’s impossible
Track Name: Good As Gold
Good As Gold

Flick the jug on
Caz I’m coming over soon
To solve the problems of the world
Over a cup of coffee

Turn the light on
Caz the darkness is too much
And stumbling through another day
Is not an option

Don’t you worry bout what others say
I’ll be here for you come what may

People who mind don’t matter
Those who matter don’t mind at all ahh ohh ahh ohhh
So do what ya want be who you wanna be
Go where you want see who you wanna see
Just be yourself caz you’re good as gold

Let your hair down
Caz we’re going out tonight
I’ll grab the beer you grab the wine
We’ll paint the town red

Kick your heels up
There’s no need to make a fuss

Forget about everything else
Just for the night

Don’t you worry bout what others say
I’ll be here for you come what may

People who mind don’t matter
Those who matter don’t mind at all
So do what ya want be who you wanna be
Go where you want see who you wanna see
Just be yourself caz You’re good as gold
Track Name: Curious Disgrace
Curious Disgrace
Written By: Katie Thompson

Flew into the flames
Played your little games
You draw me in

Most curious disgrace
Crawls across your face
As I let you in

Why, Why

Quit this whole charade
You’re barely making grade
It’s plain to see

Bitter sweet escape
Knowing it’s too late
I always win

Why, why

The devils always in the detail
Just to catch you when you’re unaware
We should have gone our separate ways
Caz you never really had a prayer

It’s coming to an end
May as well pretend
It’s all ok

Take a deep breath in
The lies are wearing thin
I know the truth

Why why

Why why
Track Name: Cruel To Be Kind
Cruel To Be Kind
Written By: Katie Thompson

Leave well alone you’ve already said enough
What we had is dead in the dust
I’d like to leave it where it lay
I think we’re better off this way

You said things I didn’t want to hear
Now you wanna take it back

But I refuse to let bygones be
Forgive and forget ain’t that easy
You’re no friend of mine
I’ll be cruel to be kind

Well talk is cheap and so is what you said to me
So I’ll cut these ties and let it bleed
Let the chips fall where they may
I know I’m better off this way

You said things I didn’t want to hear
Now you wanna take it back

But I refuse to let bygones be
Forgive and forget ain’t that easy
You’re no friend of mine
I’ll be cruel to be kind

I refuse to let bygones be
Forgive and forget ain’t that easy
You’re no friend of mine
I’ll be cruel to be kind

But I refuse to let bygones be
Forgive and forget ain’t that easy
You’re no friend of mine
I’ll be cruel to be kind
I’ll be cruel to be kind
So I’ll say goodbye
I’ll be cruel to be kind
Track Name: The Penny Drops
The Penny Drops
Written By: Katie Thompson

Off the record in the end
When push comes to shove I was never in love
Your intentions never said
I missed the signs, never read between the lines

The penny drops . . . .
The penny drops

No exceptions you’re the rule
Playing no strings n saying sweet nothings
I don’t need this anymore
I’ll walk away there’s nothing more to say

And the penny drops
The penny drops

You ain’t wrong she’ll be right
You ain’t wrong I seen the light
All you wanted was to borrow
All I wanted was a promise of tomorrow

And the penny drops
The penny drops
The penny drops
The penny drops
