about Kate

about Kate

Kate Magdalena was an independent singer-songwriter out of the San Francisco Bay Area and Nashville, TN. Most at home in folk pop, she called her genre Timely Americana, as she was inspired to write for the particular times in which we live. Kate’s voice has been described as “quite literally sweeping you away; otherworldly, ethereal, like someone on the Irish hillside singing, precise and lilting, with great vocal range and control.”

Kate was selected by BWH Music in 2020 and 2021 as A Woman to Watch: Best Female Independent Artists, and her album The Water is Wide was awarded Best Album in the Adult Contemporary genre in the 2020 W.A.M. Awards.

In November 2019, Kate released her first album, A Larger Dance, with Grammy-nominated producer Billy Smiley (Johnny Cash, WhiteHeart, Clay Aiken). The title track A Larger Dance, written by Kate, was awarded a “Best Song” Silver Medal in the 2021 W.A.M. Awards for Adult Contemporary Music.

Today we celebrate Kate’s life with an exciting release of a collection of new songs she had been working on for the past year, Canyonlands. To be released on all digital platforms on her birthday, April 20, 2022.

Although we are saddened by her early passing, we are grateful that she left so many beautiful songs to soothe, delight, and inspire us.
