The best kept secret in music


This band has no press


I have one CD produced in my own home with the Roland VS 880. The CD is entitiled "Training Wheels" because I haven't learned recording technology well enough to advance without them. This CD is a collection of original songs that range from easy listening to hard rock. With the exception of one guitar track, the entire CD is produced by my own hand with the Roland VA76. The (sometimes 4 deep) vocal layering is all me as well. The CD can be purchased at my website: www.kateandhermusic.com.
It can be heard streaming at: www.biglisten.com.
I'm currrently working on another CD.

I collaborated with an internet group called the "Biglist. " The group is for people using the VS series Roland digital recording equpiment and together we collaborated on a Beatles Compilation, on which I have two tracks (Somthing, Come Together) on the first disc of the 4 disc set.


Feeling a bit camera shy


I was raised on a public game farm, an environmental outdoor classroom that was managed by my father. Growing up playing with bear cubs, deer fawn, bobcat kittens and coyote pups gave me a unique opportunity to be in the limelight at an early age. At three years old I was in an AP article, pictured feeding bear cubs that to me were "more fun than dolls." As a child I brought bear cubs to school for show and tell, and began leading tours at the Conservation Center. After we left the center I longed for the critters I'd come to love and wanted to find my way back to the limelight. I began to play the piano and sing.

I listened to Carole King, James Taylor and Carly Simon as songrwriting infuences and loved the sounds of Spirit, Cream, Heart and Emerson Lake & Palmer. I began writing music and playing covers at age13. Playing to larger crowds as a soloist comes naturally to me. I've played to crowds numbering in the thousands. At the Dane County Coliseum Talent Show, I was awarded 3rd place with an original song (written when I was 14) that recieved radio airplay locally. I've played in bands but have enjoyed bening a solo show since advanced technology affords me that opportunity. I sing to people, not at them, and without audience integration into the musical experience the beauty of that universal language is lost. I have that ability to make the music "ours." From the soft sounds of piano/vocal to the rocking sounds in genres from the 50's to present, I keep a little bit of everything from my 500 song repretoire that tailors my performance to the crowd at hand. I enjoy delivering a little bit of everything from the 1920's to present.
The past several years I've been asked to Milwauke Art Museum Festival of the Arts at the Lake, entertaining the sponsors of this event. Gathering on the Green in Mequon, an event that sells 7,000 to 10,000 tickets each year hires me to entertain their sponsors. These performances include songs of the post war era, classics and standards as well as pop music. A year of playing poolside at Devil's Head Resort was a latin based show, then moving my equipment to the Devils Den I'd rock the house with songs from the 70's to present. I spent a year performing weekly at the prestigous Fields at the Wilderness dinner club in the Wisconsin Dells. Versatility keeps me playing!
