Kate steps forward with assured artistry, releasing a debut album that captures the warmth and orchestrations of her beloved era of 1970s Laurel Canyon singers-songwriters enhanced by today’s crisp modern production standards.
Kate’s influences span American foundational songwriters such as Dan Fogelberg and Karen Carpenter up through modern pop marvels such as Grace Potter and Brandie Carlile. She is a storyteller whose lyrics and emotional perspective are uniquely informed by schooling and a career in social work.
Her previous release, "Little Bird" (2013) eared critical accolades from outlets such as Acoustic Music Scene, Women's International Music Network, and All About That Music. Kate has been a semi-finalist in the UK Songwriter Competition and a semi-finalist in the International Songwriting Competition. In addition, she recently conducted a successful Kickstarter campaign to fund her upcoming full-length.
As a performing artist, Kate has gigged around the country at venerated venues, house concerts, colleges, and festivals. Select highlights include Hotel Cafe in LA,Cutting Room in NYC,Montauk Music Festival, ASCAPS “I Create Music Conference,” Ladybug Festival, NJ Folk Festival, SouthEast Regional Folk Alliance, and Musikfest.
