Born in Lancaster, Pennslvania, Kate Devin traded in the rural life for city life in 2003 moving to New York City with only her keyboard and a few other belongings. For several years she sang open mics with various funk/soul acts, drawing inspiration from them to create her own unique style of soul infused music. She honed her songwriting skills by collaborating with other like-minded songwriters and producers, and in 2008 began to write and produce her debut, Drown, an EP of six songs. She has been tackling the live music scene on the streets of New York, and is currently based in Brooklyn.
Devin offers a sound rooted in traditional and contemporary soul with pop and bluesy melodies and dynamic, powerful vocals. A singer and pianist since the age of five, she now draws much of her inspiration from singers like Alicia Keys and Nikka Costa, both of whom exemplify what Devin considers to be "the whole package" when it comes to soulful songwriting.
Based in the belief that no aspect of performance can be anything less than sensational, Devin is committed to delivering music which satisfies the auditory as much as the emotional. Whether through live performance or studio recordings, she seeks to ensure that each and every public presentation is enough to both command and enchant an audience of any size or demographic.
