Kayte Grace ft. Victor Wooten
You Were a Story
Kayte is a wonderful girl. I had a chance to talk with her and she is so sweet and incredibly talented.
Please take a moment to listen to this live recording of her beautiful, bluesy song “You Were a Story.” I think you’ll love it =)
“Singer/songwriter Kayte Grace’s music is an explosion of folk, blues, pop and rock, held together by warm-voiced, sing-along-able melodies and rich, resonant lyrics. The Washington Post called Kayte a “talented musician” who “writes great pop songs with smart lyrics and a country feel” and declared the “Written On” album (featuring Kayte’s 5 time Grammy Award winning cousin Victor Wooten) an “impressive debut.” Her fans call her “delightful,” “genreless” and “refreshing.” At the heart of Kayte’s music is the desire for true community – community that is felt in that moment when you can’t help but sing along, and when you hear your deepest heart cry articulated back to you in the lyrics of a song, and especially in the moments spent right after the show, meeting and laughing and grabbing a bite to eat with fans and friends who came to see her perform. It’s about community. And storytelling. The audiences of her live shows feel it.
Only two years after first picking up a guitar, Kayte Grace has been featured not only by The Washington Post, but also by YouTube, The Augusta Chronicle, NBC and ABC in Georgia, Columbia Spectator, Ivy League Christian Observer and Washingtonian Magazine. She has more than 600,000 views on her YouTube videos, has released 3 albums, launched a 130 station college radio campaign, performed at NYC venues like The Bitter End and Sidewalk Café, went on a seven-city tour of the South (2009), performed during SXSW at Red Gorilla Music Fest (Austin, Tx) and released a full album (Written On) in May 2010. Most recently, Kayte organized, booked and self-promoted a 20 city, 22 show cross country tour (2010) promoting “Written On”. During the tour she performed live with her legendary bassist cousin, Victor Wooten and filmed a music video. Her songs have been featured in two independent films. A Screen Actors Guild member, Kayte has acted professionally for over fifteen years, landing roles in national commercials and in television shows like Law & Order: SVU, HBO’s The Wire, and Gossip Girl.”
