Kate Van Dorn is an "Alternative Soul" recording artist from New York.
Her sound is derived from influences in blues, post punk, country, dance-rock, soul and folk.
...Like if maybe if Townes Van Zandt had a baby with Fiona Apple... or Billy Idol had a baby with Velvet Underground and the babes of Hole... Kate might be the love child.
At 17 Kate got her start playing in hometown bars. A few years later, while busking for singles in a nearby airport, she was offered an opportunity to open for CMA winner Thomas Rhett, thus beginning her own career as a recording artist.
Since then, she has rocked stages from the Jones Beach Bandshell, The Space at Westbury Theater to Nashville's legendary "Basement," and SXSW in Austin, Texas. Kate has opened for acts such as Dwight Yoakam, The Mavericks, Sugar Ray and Melissa Etheridge.
