Kate’s southern country-folk roots come from her dad, an important early musical influence – he once played guitar with Hank Williams on the famous Louisiana Hayride, where Elvis and Johnny Cash started.
Kate’s emotional and seductive vocals take you into a world of private beauty, reflection and feelings. The music is always intimate and evocative – you listen and want to be there. “I think there can be something incredibly beautiful about being connected to a strong emotion even if it's a really sad one - often especially if it's a really sad one,” Kate says.
A journalist for the Observer said: "Kate Ellis writes hauntingly beautiful songs and has an amazing voice, I'm a fan!"
"Wryly reflective, sweetly melodic, touchingly compassionate, warm-hearted." MAVERICK ★★★★
"Hits you straight in the heart. One of those artists that on first listen, you just know you’re going to love." TALK RADIO
"With her delicate, melodic music with the ring of truth to her words - and that most elusive quality, soul - Ellis joins the front rank of singer-songwriters. Highly recommended." R2 MAGAZINE ★★★★
"An album of great warmth and feeling that just makes you press repeat. Definitely worthy of recognition.” NO DEPRESSION
"Quite simply a superb debut album and one that announces the arrival of a genuine talent. A new Americana star of real potential." AMERICANA UK
