Welcome note from Kate

Hello and welcome.

Creating music is a very recently discovered adventure for me so no long list of accolades and achievements to date I’m afraid (although I’m assuming, with blind confidence, that I’ll be updating this site with wonderful news on a regular basis!).

I began singing for the first time 5 years ago when I joined a local choir founded by two friends of mine. This helped me to find my voice and gain some of the much needed confidence to perform in front of people. I then started gigging in local bars and venues with my own band and also began backing singing with a number of different artists (which I love to do when I get the opportunity).

After a short while of singing I felt a big itch to create my own music and songs but, as I didn’t play an instrument, I wasn’t quite sure how to get started. Without a vehicle through which to express my ideas and very poor telepathic skills to transfer them to others I found this quite a difficult task at the start!! Observing my frustrated dilemma and useless telepathy my wonderful beloved had a stroke of genius and presented me with my first guitar. Hence I began learning how to play and mastered enough chords to pen my first songs and release them from inside my head.

With incredible support and faith from the musicians playing with me I’ve had the amazing opportunity to get these first songs recorded  and catapulted out into the big bad world.  This terrifies and thrills me at the same time.

But, here they are and I hope you like them. I’m thoroughly enjoying (with regular bouts of excitement and anxiety all rolled in to one) developing my writing, playing and performing and hope to bring you much much more in the future.

All the best for now, Kate
