Feeling a bit camera shy


Kate loves to play music. She has delighted, baffled, and engaged audiences with her keyed original songs throughout the midwestern United States, then the East, and she continues this trend in the Southeast. She currently tours out of Athens, Ga. Her musical stylings have been compared to those of songwriters including Joni Mitchell, Tori Amos, Sarah McLachlan, and Alanis Morissette. She recorded her most recent album, A Girl in Winter , at WVIA studios in Pennsylvania for a public radio and television special. Through her integration of media interviews and fantastic live shows, her fan base continues to grow. Ben Gerrard of Athens ' entertainment magazine Flagpole describes a show:

On Friday night, I walk up to Hot Corner (Coffee) to find out what Kate Morrissey has to offer. She's performing solo with keyboards and a little amplification. Morrissey bears a vocal resemblance to Tori Amos in sound and style, with a hint of Alanis Morissette's phrasing. As the set progresses, though, Morrissey's vocals escape the easy folk-rock comparisons, finding mustier, darker tones like Cleo Lane . Her songs are laced with fresh passion and devilish temptation hidden within upbeat love songs. Morrissey's music can carry you away to the sumptuous spaces and places in her mind, while her lyrical content is enchantingly witty.

Morrissey puts on a calmly exuberant delight of a show, the kind that melts things, mixes them around, and leaves them to glue themselves back together.
