Pop Singer/Songwriter - Nashville, TN
Kate Barnette bio...
Kate Barnette is a 23-year-old singer songwriter who recently emerged into the spotlight after making it to the top 20 on ABC’s American Idol, just one year after releasing her debut album in 2018.
Originally from a small town outside of Atlanta, Kate was initially discovered by local producer and drummer for Justin Bieber, Melly Baldwin, after hearing her perform her original music in a high school talent show at the age of 16. He was immediately enamored by her “star power,” and invited her to record at his private studio, as well as taking her to shows and introducing her to the life of a touring musician. She eventually dropped out of school to chase her dreams of becoming a recording artist.
Since then Kate has played hundreds of venues all across the country, and her music heard by millions on national television. She draws from her Atlanta-roots, combining elements of R&B, rhythm, blues, and jazz, and mixes those elements with her smooth and sultry vocal style.
