An utterly captivating performer. Loren Kate’s angelic voice, evocative guitar playing and delicate storytelling are delivered with rare humour and grace that is both humbling and inspiring.
While a far cry from gospel music, Loren’s music shares that same uplifting spiritualism. It ain't preachy. More so, 'stubbornly positive' - putting one foot in front of the other, keeping her head above water. Loren’s stories organically stem from this place - of endurance; perseverance. But it's not in any way pretentious. In a world where superficial reigns supreme, Loren prescribes returning to our true self. It's simply Loren on a plate.
