On Friday, September 13th, Little Lamb Recordings will release HARD PASS, the debut comedy album from New York's Katie Compa. Katie is a woman who knows what she wants, or more importantly, what she doesn't want, and is more than happy to let us know exactly why. 'Hard Pass' was recorded in front of a live audience at the legendary Duplex in Greenwich Village.
