KATE WESTWOOD BIOGRAPHY
Kate Westwood is a Singer/Songwriter from Melbourne, Australia. She released her debut album ‘The Lament & the Love Song’ in 2018 despite being in her mid 30’s and having struggled with insecurity and comparison.
In the 4 years since that album, Kate says “I’ve found my true voice, embraced my artistry and also found confidence in my songwriting. I actually love the writing process and the challenge to develop myself to tell a real and deep story”.
She is recording album number two with producer Joel Dowling (Baptiste, Matt Corby, Samsurah), writing songs that explore her relationship with her non-existent love life, the love of God and how she feels about being a woman in society today.
“I want to share my personal story through my songs, and to invite you to find the courage and strength inside you in the midst of your own journey”.
NEW SINGLE - THRIVE
With songwriting powerhouses Ryan Tedder (OneRepublic) and Jon Foreman (Switchfoot) and artists Lauren Daigle, Brooke Fraser, Nichole Nordeman as influences, it’s no wonder Kate is making an impact as a songwriter of depth and meaning.
The first single off the upcoming album, ‘Thrive’ is an energetic, peppy tune perfect for a summer road trip. It is a song of hope and identity; a reminder of the beauty that comes from the ashes.
As one listener shared, “Thrive is my declaration song! One I can sing at the top of my lungs and claim over myself. This is who I am.”
And from another listener, “This song is a great reminder that we don’t have to settle for what life throws at us but we can actually thrive in life. And reach for more!”.
‘Thrive’ is released worldwide on August 27th.
