Our performers this month will be Kate Coleman & Acoustic Bridge!
Kate Coleman has been a full-time musician since 2011. She started out singing in a Classic Rock cover band in Buffalo, NY, despite her affinity for country music. A year later her and her husband, Corey Coleman, started their Bluesy-Americana duo Kate and Corey. They spent the next 5 years releasing 2 albums, several singles, and playing all over the southeast. The duo even got to play at the notorious Ryman Auditorium as finalists in the 2012 Country Showdown with Jewel as the host.
Kate Coleman released her first solo album, “PAST”, on April 28th with a production entitled “Tremors of my PAST” which involved modern dance, videos, and live music to bring the story of her 10 song album to life. She has since had the privilege of opening for Chuck Cannon and Samantha Fish and also participated in the prestigious Wire & Wood Songwriter’s Festival. Kate’s songwriting is inspired by a wide range of genres/artists: Patty Griffin, Darrell Scott, Jack White, The Dixie Chicks, and The Grateful Dead to name a few.
