Her transparent, vulnerable songwriting, compliments her poetic storytelling, finger picking, and witty persona, to create something truly special. Kate will be returning to Toronto on June 23, for a special show at the Burdock. She is a graduate of the Belmont University’s School of Music’s Commercial Voice and Songwriting program.
