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 [...]

Music Monday: why I’m LOVING Ashley McBryde’s New Record

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 [...]
