At the intersection of a smokey NYC jazz club & a summer camp celebration, the Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter channels her superpower for empathy & warmth of spirit to create an uncanny connection with her listeners. Her music ranges from joy to sadness - at times intense & strong, at others, soothing & breathtakingly refreshing. With venues as lauded as Radio City Music Hall & Lincoln Center to the intimate legendary haunts of Greenwich Village & a degree from NYU’s Clive Davis Institute on her resume, Kate uses her platform to build a bond of understanding as well as to incite loud and liberating positivity.
“We all at one point have been looked at & told we aren’t good enough,” says Kate. “I want my music to be a safe haven. I want people to know there is a seat at the table for them here.”
Kate's professor at NYU, Dan Charnas (The Big Payback, The Breaks), has one rule: students are never allowed to use the words ‘genuine,’ ‘timeless,’ or ‘authentic’ to describe their work. However, after her college showcase, Charnas approached Kate with an amendment. “Tonight I watched my daughter, my wife, & her mother fall in love with you,” he said. “You are the only person who is allowed to use the word timeless in this program.”
