Meant for Me

"Kate’s vocal talents are diverse and genuinely pure"

Award winning Calgarian Kate Stevens vocal talents are diverse with a mix of emotive folk & soulful pop with major influences from timeless voices such as Etta James, Ella Fitzgerald, Amy Winehouse, Carole King and Joni Mitchell. Her vocals combine uniquely with the sound of her chosen instruments, the ukulele, the piano and the guitar. She creates distinctive melodies and meaningful lyrics. Kate is a community builder, collaborator and supporter for youth musicians.

"Meant for Me" comes as a dual release. Both tracks feature Kate's expressive vocals and create imagery that will find the listener feeling emotions of a sweet romance or the heat of a sultry summer night. The A side features the full single, which was recorded and produced by Juno award-winning musician and producer Russell Broom at OCL studios in partnership with the 2018 Prophets of Music Emerging Artist Program. 

The acoustic version of "Meant for Me" on the B-side, was recorded and produced in Toronto at the Coalition for Music Chapel with  sound engineer Kevin Meikle while attending Canada's Music Incubator Artist Entrepreneur Program.This version is as pure as it gets, mesmerizing the listener with the raw and clean sound of the baritone ukulele and Kate's soulful engaging vocals.

New Single Meant for Me is available Now on Itunes for pre order.

Miss Stevens is nominated for 4 2019 YYC Music Awards this year and she received a SOCAN Foundation for Young Canadian Songwriters Award (2018), as well as she is a double award recipient of the YYC Music Awards (2018) Female Artist of the Year &The Zackariah and the Prophets Memorial award. Her debut EP, Handmade Rumours was released in 2017 and Kate has additionally launched two new singles in 2018 - it’s real and Right Choice.

She recently returned from the 2019 Canadian Music Week(CMW) conference in Toronto where she performed at a CMW Showcase to a packed audience at The Painted Lady Ossington. She has supported David Beckingham on the Gateway stage, Joe Nolan at the refurbished King Eddy, NMC and opened for Daniel Romano kicking off the Calgary Big Winter Classic Festival. Stevens typically performs as a soloist, and more recently with bands such as Sweet Barry Wine. Look for Kate this September on a new television series called “The Moment” which highlights Alberta musicians. Enjoy interviews and her outstanding live performance.

Creating and spearheading the venture for the Youth Musicians of Music Mile Alliance (YOMOMMA), Stevens has focused on connection, mentorship and performance opportunities for other aspiring youth musicians (11-21). As the founder and artistic director of YOMOMMA, she collaborates with iconic Calgary music institutions such as the Blues Can, National Music Center, Gravity Espresso and Wine bar. “What started as an organization feels more like a community at this point, I’ve met other like-minded young musicians wanting to better their craft and who I can surely call my best friends,” explains Stevens 

She represents the Youth Musicians of Music Mile Alliance as a member of the Music Mile Board , a music networking organization focusing on the common goal of advocating for the importance of music in our communities & lives.
