Artist: Kate Morgan
Kate Morgan, a 16 year old singer/songwriter from Kamloops, British Columbia, is not your average teenager. She lives, eats and breathes music; writing, singing and playing music fills almost every moment of her life.
In hindsight, Kate's first step onto the path of the singer/songwriter was taken when she became the youngest person ever to be selected for her district's honor choir. Voice lessons and festival competitions followed, however, Kate discovered her true passion and talent for music when she taught herself to play guitar. In 2008, with only a few months of guitar under her belt, Kate recorded her first demo CD which was made up of three original songs. Since then, her career as both a performer and songwriter has taken off. She has co-written with many talented musicians; Bill Henderson (Chilliwack), Jesse Wainwright (State of Shock), Juno nominated Carly Rae Jepsen and Juno Award Winning Producer of the Year, Brian Howes.
Kate has developed a burgeoning and loyal fan base in the interior of British Columbia and has played to many sold-out shows. She has played at 'Music in the Park' in both Kelowna and Kamloops, the Olympic Games send-off in 2009 and the 2009 Juno Fest. Most recently she and her band played ten 'Olympic' gigs at venues such as GM Place, Pacific Coliseum and the Whistler Olympic Park. Despite February conditions in alpine environments, 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 and Kelowna. The recording sessions led to contacts and established 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. Kate’s song was recently selected by iTunes US and Canada for the Lilith Fair Compilation CD.
Kate recently on the completed her first EP; recording at the Warehouse, and VanHowes studios.
