Bio

Kate grew up playing clasically as well as singing and playing in her family's bluegrass band. Her love for music as an outlet to express what's on her heart has continued to develop since those early years. Kate's music ministry includes nearly 10 years in Budapest, Hungary, where she participated on local, national and international worship teams and recorded 2 projects. Upon returning to the states, she became invested in worship ministry in the NW and eventually started her own band 6 years ago.

Kate has just completed her new CD, "TURNING PAGES" and has already received a tremendous response since it's 2008 release. Kate says, "This album really represents where I am at in life right now. It's very creative and continues to infuse my acoustic feel with some pop/country styling. There are a lot of story songs on this project about life, love, worship, struggle and celebration no matter what life brings, I want my life to count to make a difference..."

Her most recent album prior to this, HERE, is a mingling of Celtic, Hungarian and folk influences and has landed her Canadian retail and radio distribution along with national and international airplay. Her song, "Quiet Place" took 2nd place nationally in it's genre at the 2005 GMA Music In The Rockies, "Lay It Down" was #4 on the top 10 Inspirational Charts in the UK, September of 2007, and her songs "Here" and "We Will" will be featured in the 2009 movie, "Faith Happens."

Kate lives in Vancouver, WA with her husband, Jeff, and family. She is a worship leader at New Heights Church in Vancouver. She tours nationally as a solo artist, retreat speaker and worship leader and has toured in AK and various parts of the NW and California with her band. They lead worship and put on concerts and outreaches at different churches, festivals and venues. In addition to this, their greatest passion has been their growing heart for the lost and marginalized. This has led to the development of an extensive ministry into prisons, shelters and mental institutions, where they have seen over 200 people pray to receive Christ since 2007.
