The Patchogue Arts Council and Blue Owl Art are excited to announce the Fourth installment of Long Island Music Spotlight. This podcast is produced by musicians, for musicians, and featuring local talent. The podcast is part of the PACast Series presented by the Patchogue Arts Council.
ABOUT MISS KATE VAN DORN
With a powerful country rooted sound and blues influenced lyrical drive that has been described as both alternative and psychedelic, New York based Singer/Songwriter Kate Van Dorn, has shared her music with a discerning East Coast audience for some time now. With new music and a number of upcoming shows, fans new and old will want to catch the new and emerging artist.
Kate Van Dorn and her live band easily fall into the wide realm of Americana. Largely bass driven and driving in nature, Kate’s original music is confessional, highly emotional and saturated in spacey guitar tones. Her sound was mainly conceived through her influences, including the Delta blues, music associated with Southern Gothic literature, the Outlaw country movement, cowboy riffs akin to the Old West and contemporaries such as Radiohead.

At seventeen, Kate began playing in her local hometown bars. A few years later, while busking for singles in a nearby airport, she was offered an opportunity to open for country music recording artist Thomas Rhett. After performing her first notable show, a turning point in Kate’s career, she began her journey as a recording artist.
Since then, she has rocked stages from the legendary Jones Beach Bandshell to The Space at Westbury Theater and many more, writing and creating along the way. Kate could not be anymore gracious regarding her journey as an artist thus far, stating, “It is a true privilege to pursue my passion. Without the support, encouragement and promotion I receive, none of this would be possible. I am so unbelievably excited and thankful to continue to embark on this musical, artistic adventure.”
