KStewart's career first took off as a live vocalist for Bondax, and she spent two years travelling the globe playing everything from club shows to huge festivals.
Her subsequent solo work was kick-started when a session with Karma Kid yielded ‘Tell Me About That’, ‘Speechless’ and ‘Close Enough’. Her sound evolved to invoke towering toplines and nuanced contemporary production on the uplifting ‘Keeping You Up’ and ‘Ain’t Nobody’, while ‘Be Without You’ finger-clicked its way through club-sized drums and wall-rattling bass, all the backdrop to Kate’s sweet harmonies. She’s already received airplay from Radio 1, 1Xtra, Capital, Capital Xtra and Kiss FM.Along the way, she’s simultaneously earned a reputation as a sought-after collaborator. Her biggest chart hit came when she provided the topline for Oliver Heldens’ smash ‘Last All Night (Koala)’ which catapulted into the charts at #5 and earned extensive support at Radio 1, including the Hottest Record in the World. In 2016, she teamed up with the legendary Sean Paul as the pair both featured on hot Norwegian producer Matoma’s track ‘Paradise’ – a track which passed 22 million streams at Spotify within a year of its release. Other influential artists such as David Guetta, Diplo, Skrillex and Craig David have also emerged as fans. Hailed as this generation's answer to Mariah Carey by i-D, Kate cites classic divas as her main influence – artists who possess the vocal gift to complement their independent spirit.
