KATE RUSSELL grew up in Australia listening to her fathers Patsy Cline, Jim Reeves and Slim Dusty records and became inspired by country music. Kate says, I came to America to turn my country influences into the real deal.
After completing her Bachelors and Masters degrees in Music at Berklee College of Music, Boston and The University of North Texas respectively, she spent years in Nashville in the center of the action forging new ground by blending musical styles. I use a compositional hybrid of R&B and Rock and enjoy being musically adventurous.
Kate was fortunate enough to be able to record and interact with some of the greatest musicians, producers, engineers and business partners to form strategic alliances that continue to this day.
The new Kate Russell focus track “”DYNAMITE”” comes from the album “”Give Your Love To Me””. The song highlights a rare and awesome guitar display from GREG LEISZ (Eric Clapton/Bob Dylan/Merle Haggard/Willie Nelson/Jackson Browne) who delivers a screaming Lap Steel performance, along with RICH MOUSER and his solid Rock & Roll guitar.
Kate says: “”Greg Leisz has made so many contributions to my music. He has become a true friend and musical soulmate. I have much to be thankful for.””
