Kate's Story

"Kate Van Dorn's dreamily haunting vocals contrasted against country-western influenced blues rock creates a sound that revitalizes Americana." 

 Described as both alternative and psychedelic, retro and progressive, Kate has shared her music with a discerning East Coast audience for some time now.

 At 17 she got her start playing in hometown bars. A few years later, while busking for singles in a nearby airport, she was offered an opportunity to open for country music award winner Thomas Rhett, thus beginning her own career as a recording artist. 

Since then, she has rocked stages from the Jones Beach Bandshell, The Space at Westbury Theater to Nashville's legendary "Basement," and SXSW in Austin, Texas. Kate has opened for acts such as Dwight Yoakam, The Mavericks,  Sugar Ray and Melissa Etheridge.
