Hi, I'm Kate.
Perhaps you have known me for years, or maybe you're just listening to my music for the first time; if you're interested in my songs, you may want to know a little about me too.
I am going to leave the career facts out of this. These will surely find their way into an official "bio" somewhere along the line. I'm proud of the facts but I want this to be a bit more personal. I want you to know me, and perhaps get a glance into the beautiful chaos that created "Heartbreakers and Hell Raisers".
I love to write pop songs. I love finding the perfect words for the perfect melody. I love finding a way to boil down complex emotions into something everyone can understand, into something I can understand. Being a songwriter is probably the biggest part of my identity. I'm proud to say that I was a writer on every song on my album and even wrote one of them solo. This is how I got started in the business and this is how I will carry on. The last few years have been a ride, the roller coaster kind. Although overused, that metaphor is one of my favorites and I feel like It really does highlight the sporadic ups and downs of a career in music. And usually when the climb is the steepest, the fall is the most dramatic, troubling, exhilarating... I've had a few along the way.
I have a record coming out on a major label this summer and am songwriting in my downtime in beautiful, and not-so beautiful, studios all over LA, Toronto and Vancouver. I can't tell you how grateful I really am for all of this. I've never really figured out the whole religion thing, but I can't help but feel someone out there on my side, by any measure it certainly feels like an 'up' these days.
I'm a risk taker. I follow my gut and my heart and a try not to over think things. I like that about myself. Yes, it's caused me to make some mistakes, but it¹s also brought me some of the most rewarding and incredible experiences of my life. My friends and family are everything to me. I hold them close to my heart and wish they could all be with me for every day of this journey. I love the ocean, I love to hike and be in nature, I love to cook and I love to paint. I love Fleetwood Mac and I have a girl crush on Rihanna. I fucking hate playing cards and board games, I'd rather just talk or listen to music. I'll have a drink or two with friends but not too many. Okay, I hate being hungover, and I've been known to make the odd inappropriate phone call when wasted. I'm incredibly clumsy, I have multiple bruises on my thighs simply from running into tables and chairs. As I write this, I also have bruises on my forearms from playing volleyball. Truthfully, I find life a bit confusing, but lately I've been revelling in just how unpredictable and rewarding it can be. I over use swearwords but think they're a necessary part of language. I love the rain. I've worked many day jobs in my past and I could have been a pretty good waitress if I had tried a little harder. I'm obsessed with dogs. If you walk by me and you have one, I will pet it. Its compulsive, I can't help it.
I was going to mention that lions are my favorite wild animal and that I don't have a favorite color but then realized I'd just crossed a line. If you want to know more... just listen to the music.
