Kate Northrop is an American songwriter based in Europe who works primarily as a lyricist with many talented artists, composers and producers. She has written lyrics for over a hundred songs and her credits include lyrics for a song in the soundtrack of an award-winning German film, the title track (lyrics & music) of the 2012 CD of Dodo Hug, one of Switzerland's gold & platinum artists; songs for upcoming artists and finalists of national talent competitions; and many more.

She was born in Connecticut (USA) and studied music and English literature at Bennington College in Vermont and at the University College of Wales (UK) until she decided to try out life as a travelling musician (on tour with English songwriter Gavin James). She toured for several years in Europe and the USA, which enriched both her life and her songwriting skills. Her first CD, "Roots and Wings" (Brambus Records) recorded together with multi-instrumentalist Sandro Friedrich, was released in 1992, followed by a tour of clubs and festivals in Switzerland, Germany and Austria. Kate has lived in Switzerland since 1994.
