playing my first songwriters round!

I’ve played a lot of shows to empty rooms. I’ve played a lot of shows to people who aren’t listening. So to sit in the center of a room with a group of songwriters, surrounded by an audience that showed up to hear our original songs, is an incredibly rewarding feeling.  Last weekend, I had the [...]

NEW SONG: “Boy Named Sunday” | Original by Kate Stedelbauer

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WuGCDiiQBHI Here's a new song for y'all! We finally got the editing done on this video, and I'm so excited to share it. I love songwriting because I love to tell stories, and this is probably one of the most "story" songs I've written so far. Somehow, the idea for a song about a boy named [...]

playing my first band show!

This past Saturday night at Hilton Tavern was one of the best nights of my life. There's no better feeling than playing my songs live with a band to a bar full of people - and when the response is positive and the crowd actually listens, well, that's the best feeling of all. Thank you [...]

NEW SONG | “But When I Do” Original by Kate Stedelbauer

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J2WRLHmZJPY&t=3s This is one of my favorite songs I've ever written. The concept was inspired by the fact that, quite frankly, I don't write about love often. It's sprinkled here and there throughout my catalogue of original music, but overall, love and relationships have never been a driving topic for me when sitting down to [...]

NEW SONG | “Vinegar & Time” ~ Original by Kate Stedelbauer

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S71IpdVfTG8&t=3s New song went live last night on YouTube!  This song had to grow on me a little bit after I finished it. If you've ever heard the phrase that a good song is "three chords and the truth", I guess that's what I was thinking when I wrote this one. I have a tendency [...]

NEW Original Song: “Off The Record”

Hey y'all, here's a new original song for ya!  Though all of my songs are personal, this one feels especially vulnerable because I wrote it as a reflection on the phrase "off the record", representing all of the things that we don't want others to know about us. I think at some point in everyone's [...]
