About Kate

Kate Burkart has been writing, singing, and playing in the San Francisco Bay area for over a decade. She released “Faith To Fall”, her debut album, in 2010. The six-song EP “Save Me a Seat” followed in 2015, and she’s released several singles since, including “Last” and the Blaze Foley cover “Moonlight.”

Kate’s genre is Americana – some rock, some twang, some quiet introspection. The common thread? Lyrics that tell a story and draw the listener in. Her voice and songs are most often compared with those of Lucinda Williams, Neil Young, Emmylou Harris, and every now and then, Karen Carpenter. She performs on vocals/bass with her band (John Harris/lead guitar, Nancy Lake/backup vocals, Curt Olsen/guitar, Rob Davis/drums) and in acoustic formats as well.

There’s a mystic place I go to when music moves me. It’s a dreamlike condition where everything is certain. ‘Save me A Seat’ from Kate Burkart takes me there. It’s a collection of six songs reflecting on the spaces and links between people, their changing experiences and the persistence of memory – and it’s superb.
