Peter Shields As an artist, I believe the most difficult task is to be totally original without sounding contrived.
It is always a joy and a blessing when we discover real genuine singer songwriters, who have strong influences without being copyists.
I love Katie's sound and I love her songs.
She is a very unique talent. Favorite track: Please, Don't Look At Me.

about

Live songs taken from 'The Same Water' - a short film capturing progressive folk artist Katie Spencer through live performance and interview, filmed and directed by Patrick Mateer.

"The heartbeat of the film is Katie’s storytelling through her lyrics and I used these, along with the interview footage we filmed, to weave a narrative amongst the songs that tells us who Katie is and why she makes the music she does. The film also features scenes shot in places that are meaningful to Katie’s music and that have inspired some of the songs in the film."
- Patrick Mateer

Track Name: Drinking The Same Water
I count every third tree on my way to school
I wonder if you ever did the same
As I wash my hands in the morning I wonder if you’re doing the same

And sometimes I smile when I realise that
We’re breathing the same air
And we’re drinking the same water
All the while, nevermind
I just hope that you’re thinking of your daughter

And sometimes I call myself a fool
And I wonder if you ever did the same
Because I think too much without forewarning
And I’m wondering if you’re doing the same

And sometimes I smile when I realise that
We’re breathing the same air
And we’re drinking the same water
All the while, nevermind
I just hope that you’re thinking of your daughter

And most the time I do fine, as a rule
I wonder if you ever did the same
And I’m giving you a whole load of love now spring is dawning
And I’m wondering if you’re doing the same
Track Name: Talk
In the belly of the bird, we grew
Forever human, alive
- forever apart

And I want to talk
Until the count comes in
Or at least until the reaper grins

I’m always cradled in between myself
And you and I
And still I fear to come near
And it’s as strong as a wave

And I want to talk
Until the count comes in
Or at least until the reaper grins
Track Name: Please, Don't Look At Me
Please, don’t look at me when I’m feeling like this
Because I’m humiliated, as it is
Even after all the new eyes and bright smiles
These songs are still about you babe
Please, don’t look at me when I’m feeling like this
Because I’m humiliated
I’m laid here in Park Terrace
And I’m so much in love

Elvis still rings in my ears
And the noise of naivety hums
But how were we to know
Suspicious Minds would end our time together?

Please, don’t look at me when I’m feeling like this
Because I’m humiliated, as it is
Even after all the new eyes and bright smiles
These songs are still about you babe
Please, don’t look at me
Because I’m humiliated
I’m laid here in Park Terrace
And I’m so much in love

And I know your love didn’t work out
The way you wanted it to
And I’m sorry babe, cos’ I know just how that feels
Like a bubble bursting on your broken back

Please, don’t look at me
Because I’m humiliated
And I’m laid here in Park Terrace
And I’m so much in love
