Biography

Most would count themselves lucky to have met their idols within a lifetime yet Kate Morgan has already shared the stage with those that have gone before her. After a tight and well received performance at the 2010 Lilith Fair in Calgary, Kate was invited onto the Vancouver stage for the finale where she performed alongside the likes of Sarah McLachlin, Sheryl Crow, and Erykah Badu. At just 16 years of age, Kate was the Lilith Fair Tour’s youngest performer! Now 18, Kate has relocated from Kamloops to Vancouver BC where she continues to pursue music as a career and lifestyle; closer to her band, fellow writers and producers. While she gracefully takes all opportunities and success in stride, Kate’s continual growth in all facets of her craft speaks to an unrelenting passion for music and to an uncommon determination.

Kate has co-written with many talented musicians; Bill Henderson (Chilliwack), Jesse Wainwright (State of Shock), Dave Genn (54-40) Juno nominated Carly Rae Jepsen, Jeff Johnson, Jeff Dawson, Dane DeViller and Juno Award Winning Producer of the Year, Brian Howes.

Kate quickly developed a loyal and burgeoning fan base throughout British Columbia and has played to many sold-out shows. She played as a solo acoustic act at many community oriented venues such as 'Music in the Park' in both Kelowna and Kamloops, the Olympic Games send-off in 2009 and the 2009 Juno Fest. As the engagements became more auspicious the Kate Morgan Band coalesced to include Dasha Duquette on Keyboards, Tobi Duquet on Drums, Johny Milstein on Bass and Lonny Eagleton on Lead Guitar. Backed by this accomplished group of musicians, Kate went on to play at ten 'Olympic' gigs at venues such as GM Place, Pacific Coliseum and the Whistler Olympic Park. Despite February conditions in the alpine, the performance quality and work ethic of “the Kate Morgan Band” was noticed and this led to booking at the Telus World Ski/Snowboard Festival in April. In this same period Kate's more recent, and more mature, recordings were attracting attention. She was selected as Virgin Radio’s “Best of BC” artist and now three of her songs are getting regular air play in Vancouver, Kamloops, Kelowna, Courtenay, Campbell River and CBC Radio One. The recording sessions led to relationships which brought Kate to the attention of Nettwerk Records. After a subsequent meeting with Terry McBride and an impromptu performance, Kate was invited to play at Lilith Fair in Calgary Alberta. Kate’s song ‘Lovin You’ was selected by iTunes US and Canada for the Lilith Fair Compilation CD. Kate has opened for Chilliwack, FeFe Dobson and performed at the Salmon Arm Roots and Blues Festival and at Live at Squamish. Kate recently played at the BC Interior Music Awards where she was nominated for “Best New Artist.”

Kate wrote and produced the Western Canada Games song and performed in front of 4000 athletes at the opening and closing ceremonies this summer. They recently opened for the Sheepdogs and
K NAAN as part of the Parks Canada 125 Celebration at Brockton Point.

Kate’s first EP, recorded at the Warehouse, and VanHowes studios, was released in May. It showcased the talents of an emergent songwriter and attracted the attention of fans and industry insiders alike. Television appearances on E-Talk, Urban Rush and the Midday Show and a CBC radio interview have increased Kate’s exposure as have several You Tube offerings including a recent release of a nicely polished ‘Lovin You’ video.

The next phase of Kate’s career promises to be the most exciting. As a self-reliant, self-aware and fully immersed individual, Kate’s music continues to mature and to engage, move and inspire those who listen.

Lyrics

Lovin You

Written By: Kate Morgan

Lovin' you is the only thing I wanna do
it's the only thing I wanna do
boy you'll be quaking in your little boots
when I'm through

So tie me down
I'm happiest when your around
you're like the treasure in the lost and found
you sweep my fee right of the ground so tie me down

Oh Your far to sweet for always loving me
Oh can't you see I'm all caught up
Oh your far to sweet for always loving me but its in you blood

Whenever I, come undone
I know your smile
will wrap me up
just like the sun

Oh Your far to sweet for always loving me
Oh can't you see I'm all caught up
Oh your far to sweet for always loving me but its in you blood

No one knows me like you do, no
no one holds me like you do, no
no

Lovin' you is the only thing I wanna do
its the only thing I want to do
its the only thing I want to do

Oh Your far to sweet for always loving me
Oh can't you see I'm all caught up
Oh your far to sweet for always loving me but its in you blood

Its in your blood
Your blood

It's in your blood
your blood.....
