The music of multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Kate Davis has been turning heads in New York's music scene since 2012.
Whether she's crooning rootsy ballads or plucking bright riffs from her bass, the gutsy songstress from Portland, Oregon, puts a fresh spin on the standards and brings a canonical sensibility to her own lush tracks.
Lauded by MTV as one of 2014's "15 Fresh Females Who Will Rule Pop," Kate grew up with an instrument in her arms and a head full of inventive lyrics. Her lifelong training makes for smart, warm pop that's as musically nuanced as it is addictive.
Vivid, nostalgic melodies materialize out of Kate's musical arrangements, her songbird voice complimented by a rich rock 'n' roll bass-line. Alternating between achingly soulful and flippantly funny, Kate's songwriting combines ranging sonic textures with an anecdotal knack. She's performed at such illustrious venues as The Kennedy Center, The Bowery Ballroom, Lincoln Center, and Carnegie Hall.
Kate became a New York transplant in 2009, when she enrolled at Manhattan School of Music. There, she met guitarist Gabe Schnider and drummer Conor Szymanski, with whom she collaborated to develop her signature genre-defying sound. The trio continues to pair contagious melodies with crafted musical arrangements and to tell the kind of emotionally resonant stories you'll remember long after the song is over.
