Kate MacLeod's voice has been said to sound as pure as water from a mountain stream. And while singing from the Wasatch Mountains in Utah, her highly acclaimed songs often precede her as other artists sing them from California to the Czech Republic. Her songs compel music publications such as Sing Out! Magazine to claim that Kate MacLeod "channels the spirit of the great Carter Family classics." She has opened for artists such as Rosanne Cash and Greg Brown. Her songwriting style and live performances display an unbreakable link between traditional music and cutting-edge contemporary songwriting. 2016 marks the release of a songbook, including music notation, chords, and lyrics, from 50 of her original songs.
