Kate, As of Late

  • From: Duxbury, MA
  • Grew up in: Duxbury, MA
  • Now lives in: Nashville, TN
  • Current single: Beauty Shots
  • What lead you to music: Music has just always had a place in my soul. I always loved singing along to the radio and creating things.
  • How old when you started: I have been singing for as long as I can remember. I started lessons around 7 years old and started writing songs and playing guitar at 11. At 17 years old I started playing gigs all around the boston area. In college I gigged up to 4 times a week in the summer!
  • Instruments played: Guitar, Piano
  • How would you describe your sound: My distinct vocal sound lands somewhere between my Boston roots and Nashville idols. At times I’m mirroring soul and rock vocalists such as Susan Tedeschi or Aerosmith yet I have the singer-songwriter sensibilities of those like Taylor Swift and Miranda Lambert.
  • Who inspires you: My My family. They all work very hard and are all my favorite people.
  • Dream duet partner: Probably John Mayer
  • All- time favorite country song: Need You Now – Lady A
  • First country concert: Lady A at Agganis Arena in 2010!
  • What songs do you like now on Country 1025: Hard to Forget – Sam Hunt, Chasin’ You – Morgan Wallen
  • If you weren’t a musician, what would you be doing: I’d be hosting a TV show on HGTV!
  • Day Job: I work full time in property management and development!
  • Most proud moment: Graduating from Berklee College of Music and performing a Stevie Nicks and Tom Petty song at the commencement concert at Agganis Arena in Boston!
  • Crazy thing that happened in your music career: When I was 18 years old I reached out to Kruser on facebook and asked if there were any opportunities to get involved with Country 102.5… The next few years I played promotional events for them and even got to play pre parties for Fenway Park and TD Garden concerts! It was a dream! 🙂
  • Other things you like to do: I love to dance and take spin classes! The peloton saved me during quarantine.
  • Fun facts:
    Last year I managed 60 airbnbs in Nashville!
    I love to go to Florida in the winter!
    I love to swim and be out on the boat with my family!
  •  Mantra: No = Improve and try again
