Kate Skales is a singer-songwriter based in Los Angeles, CA. Since releasing her first record in 2018, Kate has gained many fans and followers who have characterized her music as catchy and a little mean. Her genre is a healthy mix of rock, country and blues. With powerhouse vocals to back up her haunting lyrics and melodies, Kate was once described as a "vulnerable badass" and she has embraced that poetic description with open arms.
Although she has only been in LA for a year, Kate has made huge strides in the music scene with her band members Kristin Olson, Brett Rojas and Jake Adamson. They've had the pleasure of playing The Rainbow, House of Blues, Viper Room and Whisky a Go-Go to name a few. Kate can also be found performing as a solo acoustic artist at venues like the Moroccan Lounge and the Republic of Pie.
Before relocating to Los Angeles Kate was based in southern Florida and it was there that she discovered her knack for writing music. Her first EP, "Ready For Me" was released on April 20, 2018.
