Kate Grom: singer of songs, rider of horses, teller of tales. Kate’s music draws influences from a vintage vinyl collection of classic rock and country greats, ranging from Patsy Cline to Emmylou Harris to Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.
She explored the Nashville music scene while at Belmont University, and her years in Paris, London and Manhattan provided inspiration for the romance and courage revealed in her lyrics.
The tracks are lushly produced, yet also pair perfectly with an acoustic guitar to connect with audiences on her Fall 2017 mini-tour.
The tracks from her debut album Heroine was produced by the Grammy Award-winning Stewart Lerman, who has worked with Willie Nelson, Sharon Van Etten, Elvis Costello, Neko Case and Patti Smith, among others. The nine tracks feature world-class musicians who have recorded with artists including Bob Dylan, Emmylou Harris, My Morning Jacket, Brandi Carlile, Lana Del Rey and the Eagles, resulting in an album described by No Depression Magazine as ‘when country meets smooooth’.
Kate Grom resides near her family’s farm in the historic hills of western New Jersey, which provided the setting for the “Whistle Cry” music video, directed by Blake Farber.
She is a world champion horsewoman, so it was natural to have her riding Beauty Queen (aka Beauty) and Perfect Vengeance (aka Ace), with her leading man (on screen & off!), actor Chase Burnett, on Hancock Gray Bar (aka Blue) in the making of clip. Kate will begin gigging to support her LP and to embrace this new era as an assured artist. “It’s been a very long journey to make this record,” reflects Kate. “There have been a lot of ups and downs, but I’ve learned to be patient and to persevere. Now, I’m ready to run out of the gate with this album.”
