Kate's Story

With a powerful country rooted sound and blues influenced lyrical drive that has been described as both alternative and psychedelic, New York based Singer/Songwriter Kate Van Dorn, has shared her music with a discerning East Coast audience for some time now. With new music and a number of upcoming shows, fans new and old will want to catch the new and emerging artist. 

Kate Van Dorn and her live band easily fall into the wide realm of Americana.  Her sound was mainly conceived through her influences, including the Delta blues, music associated with Southern Gothic culture, the Outlaw country movement, cowboy riffs akin to the Old West and contemporaries such as Radiohead. 

At seventeen, Kate began playing in her local hometown bars. A few years later, while busking for singles in a nearby airport, she was offered an opportunity to open for country music recording artist Thomas Rhett, thus beginning her own career as a recording artist. Since then, she has rocked stages from the legendary Jones Beach Bandshell and The Space at Westbury Theater to Nashville's legendary "Basement" and SXSW in Austin, Texas.
