A multi-instrumentalist jazz bass prodigy and indie/rock/alternative singer-songwriter originally from Portland, Oregon, Kate Davis has been turning heads in New York’s music scene since 2012. Vivid, nostalgic melodies materialize out of Kate’s musical arrangements, her songbird voice complimented by a rich rock ‘n’ roll bass-line. Alternating between achingly soulful and flippantly funny, Kate’s songwriting combines ranging sonic textures with an anecdotal knack. Her lyrics are novel and rhapsodic, cutting through the clichés and trivia of pop parlance to deliver something honest and truly perceptive. As a young adult, Davis claimed enthusiastic endorsements from NPR, MTV, PBS and BBC as well as coveted invitations to the stage from Herbie Hancock, Ben Folds, Alison Krauss, Jeff Goldblum and the like. Kate often plays bass in the Colbert Show orchestra as well. Most recently, she co-wrote Sharon Van Etten’s hit single “Seventeen,” and released her debut album Trophy out on Solitaire Recordings. Bob Boilen of NPR’s ‘All Songs Considered’ included it in his list of top 20 albums of 2019.
