“A brilliant amalgam of styles but with a singular message, this is a powerful and enlightening listen. So, listen to it. NOW.” – Monk, Uber Rock

“Proof that holding onto a dream for decades can pay off, Leather Catsuit is the brainchild of singer/songwriter Kim Olin, and an idea germinating since the eighties. The rock & roll DJs’ debut EP bring in pals she made along the way, like bassist Johnny Pisano, drummer Jon Weber (both of whom anchor fellow traveler Willie Nile’s band), and, as co-writer, producer, and guitarist, Steve Conte, whose resumé include everything from hair metallers Company of Wolves to the New York Dolls and Michael Monroe, not to mention his own superlative solo efforts. He and Olin come up with four songs (plus one reworked from songwriter Dave DeLuca’s catalog) that rock (“Piece of the Pie”), roll (“Can’t Get You Off My Mind”), weep (“A Woman Alone”), and worry (“Broken”). “You’re Killing Me” caps it off with a midtempo moan that puts melody, emotion, and soul into an irresistible package.” – Michael “Denim” Toland, Big Takeover Magazine

“Lead single of this mini album ‘Piece Of The Pie’ already received profuse praise, top 10 position on Indie Radio charts and fantastic press. For Kim Olin a dream came true. The record is her dream baby and what a record it is.”… 

Kim says: “I want to thank Steve Conte for taking a chance on producing some girl from NJ that hadn’t done too much musically since the 80’s. Thanks to Johnny Pisano and Arlan Feiles for convincing me to just do it, Robb Geores for helping me figure out chords and stuff, and Palmyra Delran for her encouragement and advice throughout the process. Thanks to everyone who has been supportive during the long journey to this record. My heart is full.”
