Since 2005, Michigan-based singer songwriter Kate Peterson has traveled across this country and Europe, opened for Ani Difranco, and graced hundreds of stages with her folk duo, Nervous but Excited. Now Kate is reinventing herself and stepping out solo.

The roots of her music are still planted firmly in the Pleasantly Aggressive Folk sound that never fails long time fans. The cool rasp of Kate's voice can fill up a room and tug on your heart at the same time. Of her vocals, The Northern Express explains “…you could almost swear you hear the same grainy whispers as Ray LaMontagne.” She approaches her sound with sailing melodies, a dash of percussion and a passion so genuine that it has worn through the wood of her guitar. New listeners to her performance should expect songs and stories of travels and trials that connect us all. The raw nature of her writing can leave you feeling a little exposed, but given her genuine yet dry wit, you will surely be tempered by a laugh or two.

It may be too soon predict the path of this new beginning, but be certain that it will unfold with sound that will inspire at least a few bonus heart beats.
