Hello beautiful people,
My name is Kate, I am 27 years of age and I am a singer from Ireland.
I have been singing since before I could talk. It was always an escapism and a very calming peaceful thing for me to do. My life hasn't been the easiest, my Mother walked out on me and my brother when I was 3 years old. She moved to London and left us with our Dad. Devistated, I locked myself away in my room, and the only thing that was helping me get through, was singing. 12 years later I eventually moved to London to be with her, and also to try my luck at some singing. Unluckily, my confidence was kicked down constantly by my mother, so I eventually gave up and moved back to Ireland to be with my Dad. I had, in the mean time, been diagnosed with pretty bad depression, I stopped singing. Music didn't feel the same anymore, my heart was broken. I eventually gave in, and I went on medication to help me out, I have never looked back. I got back on my feet and started singing, it made me feel so happy and eased off the anti-depressants. I have gotten back up on stage and my voice is as powerful as ever. After struggling so long with confidence, I can finally say I am back, and I am not giving up.
I get a lot of amazing feed back at my gigs, I get people crying, and a LOT of goosebumps. My voice connects to them in some way, and this is now the main reason I do it, to see those smiles.
Now, to the project...
Lucky ole me has been approached by a music producer based in LA. He plays in one of my favorite bands and has agreed to help me out with all of my tracks, introduce me to other musicians, and get started on something SPECTACULAR. I have written a lot of songs, mostly folk, and if you listened to the video, you will hear I have a very Irish voice, that is the style I am going for. The money is mainly to get my flights there and to cover some studio expenses. I will be making about a 10 track album.
California has been my dream since I was that little 3 year old, singing in my bedroom. I know this is my perfect chance to put all of my skills to use and finally make something out of a talent that I have been very very blessed with.
I am back living with my Dad, he is an ex ''Waterford Crystal'' master cutter. Waterford Crystal shut down and left them with literally, nothing. No pension, nothing. Otherwise, I know he would help me. I have never ever asked for help in my whole life, and it pains me to do it, but I promise, with the money I may get, I will do good and pay it all back to the universe. I am very open to any questions or anything you may want to know. I am open to anyone getting to know me also.
Many many thank yous in advance!
