Gritty, soulful & straight from the heart.

With a raft of #1 albums & a brand new offering on the way, she combines forces with Steve Edmonds firing up a colossal celebration of Blues and Southern Rock with a dash or New Orleans 2nd line grooves.

Feat: Steve Edmonds on Guitar and vocals, Tony Boyd on Drums, Christian Young on Bass, Dave Weir on Sax & vocals & Wes Harder on Hammond & vocals.

Kate’s albums have seen her chart internationally alongside the likes of Norah Jones, Tedeschi Trucks, Samantha Fish, Taj Mahal & Robert Cray & is one of Australia’s outstanding Blues & Soul vocalists.

Despite the world being turned upside down, she also recently received a U.S. Blues Blast (Honorary mention), 2020 Unsigned Only Award (Best Blues), 2020 Canada’s Blues & Roots Radio Award (Best Blues Band) and was 2020 Chain Award Nominated (Best Blues Artist & Best Album & Best Single).
