About Kate Voegele
Entertainment Weekly recently spotlighted Kate Voegele as being among the best of “the new golden age of female singer-songwriters” and Billboard hailed her as “An Artist To Watch in ’08”—with good reason. Voegele’s MySpace/Interscope debut, Don’t Look Away, is generating major heat, having hit No. 2 on the iTunes Album Chart and top 5 on Billboard’s Digital Album Chart. In addition, the number of song plays on Voegele’s MySpace page has hit the jaw-dropping 14 million-plus mark. Voegele, who has shared stages with the likes of Dave Matthews, the Wreckers and John Mellencamp, performed at two consecutive Farm-Aid concerts, and played to packed houses at clubs and theaters nationwide, has a recurring guest-starring role on The CW Network’s hit TV series “One Tree Hill.” The 21-year-old singer-songwriter/guitarist plays Mia, and over the course of a recent multi-episode arc performed several songs from her strikingly radiant album, including lead single “Only Fooling Myself.” Voegele has been featured on the cover of USA Today’s “Life” section and recently appeared on the “CBS Saturday Early Show” and Fuse’s “The Sauce.” She’s also been featured in CosmoGirl, Giant, Teen Vogue, and TV Guide, among others. Kate is currently on tour with Natasha Bedingfield.
