About Kate Ellis
Kate’s southern country-folk roots come from her father who was an important early musical influence (he once played guitar with Hank Williams at the famous Lousiana Hayride, where Elvis and Johnny Cash also started out).
Other influences range from songwriting greats like Gram Parsons, Emmylou Harris and Bob Dylan, to artists from Lucinda Williams and Alison Krauss to Sam Baker and Tift Merritt.
An Observer journalist wrote: “Kate writes hauntingly beautiful songs and has an amazing voice, I’m a fan!”. While TheMediaEye.com recently reported: “Her contemporary country-folk classic sound, and a voice best described as a cross between Tammy Wynette and Suzanne Vega, make her debut EP eagerly anticipated.”
