About Kate Myers
Her sound can be described as raw, sophisticated and hauntingly melodic, but in no way ordinary. Influenced by artists ranging from Bright Eyes and Fionna Apple, to The Beatles and Jim Croce, Kate Myers, a Midwest born singer-songwriter, is an electrifying up and coming artist. Currently based out of Chicago, IL, Kate has an extraordinary ability to mix folk/rock guitar or melodic piano with a haunting voice, creating a unique sound of her own that's calming and quiet, yet strong and moving. Kate, now 24 years old, began playing guitar at the age of 11, and was writing her own songs by the age of 13. Kate began using her songwriting as a form of therapy, self-reflecting on deep thoughts and inner feelings which she transformed into lyrics. Kate's songwriting narrates her perspectives on love, life, and loss that relates to any individual.
"Music inspires my life, it's what I was destined to create," she says. She released a self-titled debut album in May of 2004. In an effort to inspire others with her music, Kate planted herself in coffee shops and basements of music stores, gathering a loyal following in her hometown of Valparaiso, Indiana. Kate continued performing every opportunity she could at venues such as Chicago's House of Blues, The Windmill Brixton and 12 Bar Club in London, Abbey Road in Manresa, Spain, and the National Auditorium in Andorra. While touring around, Kate has shared the stage with such artists including Common, Office, Anais Mitchell, and Sleeping At Last. She released a follow-up album, Blanket Sky, in May of 2006 and released her third full length album, Instant Clarification, in August of 2008.
