You Took My Breath Away
Let My Heart Go
The Picture of Dorian Gray
Touch Me, Want Me



Once a small town girl with big time dreams, this Toronto, Canada native has evolved into a talented singer, songwriter and business woman exemplifying confidence, passion and determination to persevere through any obstacle placed in her path.

Kate was introduced to the the pipe organ and piano at her family estate at the age of four. Coming from a non-traditional music family, with the exception of her mother, Kate was guided towards the study of Math and Sciences, with English and Literature as a back up plan.

In the past Kate has had the blessing of working with Michael Hanson of Canada's 80's pop sensation Glass Tiger. Michael produced both Let My Heart Go and The Picture of Dorian Gray. "We had a good common ground", says Kate

Kate has also been able to pick the brains of Canada/US Top Songwriters, which include John Capek, Jann Arden, Miles Wilkinson, Daryl West, Chantal Kreviazuk and Brett McNaueal to name a few. "for THEM to take the time for ME, speaks volumes" Kate adds.

As an active member of SOCAN, BMI (U.S.) and now an accredited FACTOR jury member, Kate contiunes to build and help where she can.

Kate has now joined forces with Australian producer Jesse Pitcher. A plane flight of 22 hours, Jesse Pitcher travelled from Melbourne, with a new creative energy, high demands and a touch of charm from the land down under.

"A producer, with award winning styles." "A new journey!" says Kate. "You Took My Breath Away was written and produced as a fast paced, lyrically edged song". I knew after my first conversation with him that he would produce this song.

Soon after it's release we saw it become a chart topper in EUROPE and UK, reaching 67 on the Dance Charts. "I would be happy with anything, Kate adds, I get to do what I love to do for a living"

On May 3rd, 2010, Kate will be releasing her 2nd single "YOU". With Jesse back in the "Picture" (good play on words), Kate has come up with yet another well written and produced song. With much anticipation both from the industry and from the masses. "We are confident that "YOU" will fly out of the gate. Reaching again global attention."

"YOU" is a slowed down city groove, with a hint of Mozart

Kate has been reviewed as being dynamic, thought provoking and emotionally intense. Kate's contemporary pop songs are insightful detailed descriptions of life experiences ranging from relationships, to the emotional tides and triumphs of every day life.

With an engaging writing style, an insatiable creative energy, it would appear that Kate is well on her way to carving out her own unique musical niche in the industry. Those who have experienced her live sessions agree, Kate's passion and enthusiasm are evident in every song she writes or plays.
