They released an EP in November called "Miss Kate and the Higher State" which got to no 3 in the Irish Soul Charts and have packed many dancefloors this year!
Miss Kate is currently working on a solo album to be released later this year.
Dubliner, Miss Kate (aka Kate Stanley-Brennan) was hosting parties in after-hours clubs in New York when, inspired by all the soulful house music that surrounded her, she started writing and singing her own house lyrics.
The stage has always been in Kate's blood, not only is she an incredible singer but she is a highly accomplished actress in her own right. She has appeared in Raw, Fair City, The Tudors and various stage plays, most recently Kate has been on stage at The Abbey Theatre in "The Risen People"
Kate’s music is largely influenced by Soul, Jazz, Funk, Blues and Hip Hop…and of course House lingers there somewhere! Inspirations of hers range from Muddy Waters, Leadbelly and Jimi Hendrix to Aretha Franklin, Chaka Khan and Erykah Badu to name a few.
Get to know her sound as this lady is going places with appearances at major Irish festivals this summer including Groove with Paloma Faith and CastlePalooza
