Kate Gilbertson’s debut came in April 2012 when she was selected to support UK star PASSENGER (Mike Rosenberg) at Fly by Night, Fremantle. Spotted for her raw honest sound, reviewers have likened her to the recent Laura Marling with a hint of country as she attracts a strong folk following across Western Australia.

The Perth songstress threads closely with that of her icons, including Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Cat Stevens and Jewel, as her songs bear themselves with openness.
The solo songwriter has now taken her suitcase and sounds on the road trailing through Europe and Canada in 2014 and Gilbertson continues to draw in audiences with her pervading vocals and rhythmic passages echoing her country childhood and tales of love, loss and everything in between.
