Artists of Instagram – Kate Stevens

I always enjoy promoting Canadian talent, especially if they are from Calgary.  Kate came to my attention in January of 2019 and I am just getting around to introducing you to her now.  A bit of a brain break.

Kate Stevens is singer songwriter in the story teller vein.  She has a very nice voice, reminiscent of many artists, notably a laid back version of Andra Day and quite jazzy. Definitely worth a listen.

 

If you enjoy the video, her music and her story in an expanded way are viewable here.
