Ones You Love The Most - Kate Ellis
For our next LCM featured artist we would love to introduce an Americana singer/songwriter who was born in Louisiana, raised in New York and is now based in London. Kate Ellis has recently released her wonderful new single 'Ones You Love The Most', which reminds us of Kate Wolf and Emmylou Harris.
If you would like to catch Kate live in London she is playing at the Lucky Pig on 7th March and then at Softly, Softly, Crouch End on 4th June.
Having performed in festivals and concerts across the USA, London and Paris, the timeless sound of her music reflects her love of classic singer-songwriters from Gram Parsons and Gillian Welch, to Mary Chapin Carpenter, Leonard Cohen and Nanci Griffith.
Kate’s southern country-folk roots come from her father, an important early musical influence who once played guitar with Hank Williams on the famous Louisiana Hayride, where Elvis and Johnny Cash started out. The story of her upbringing provides an
interesting background to her musical journey - as well as being a musician, her father worked as an architect and academic in
Manhattan, and her mother was a prominent New York magazine editor. Although Kate had a natural talent for classical piano
and art in her early years, she found herself following a different path before pursuing music, attending law school and eventually
becoming a lawyer. Her debut single ‘Ones You Love The Most’ is released on 10th February 2017.
Observer: “Kate Ellis writes hauntingly beautiful songs and has an amazing voice, I’m a fan!”
TheMediaEye.com: “Kate’s contemporary country-folk classic sound and a voice best described as a cross between Emmylou Harris and Suzanne Vega, make her debut album eagerly anticipated.”
Kate's debut album is due for release in May 2017.
