Kate Lush is taking off into a whole new stratosphere, right now with her brand new album LET IT FLY. The Aust Blues Chain Award winner is in creative overdrive, firing out a #1 Album last year & rocking festival stages & venues all over Australia, & here she is again with her unmistakable soulful grit, that red hot band & some of the best songwriting your likely to hear.
Kate is one of Australia’s most outstanding Blues & Soul vocalists. Gritty, soulful & straight from the heart. Think Susan Tedeschi, Sara Bareilles with a dash of Aretha’s Soul & Bonnie Raitt’s harder rock edge. Great original songs, an outstanding band, and that is Kate Lush. Be prepared to be blown away!
There’s an infectious joy that comes out of Kate’s music. “It’s heart and soul on a stick. For me it was love at first hear. It kicks arse from track #1. Kate sings the shyte out of every song, the band seriously cooks & the production & arrangements are masterful. If it was a recipe it would be high end 5 star stuff. Make no mistake, this is something special on a number of levels.” “Love it!" Mike Drayson - Sydney's 2SM on the Wild Captain Radio Tour.

Kate’s first, second & third albums ‘Don’t Wait Too Long’ & ‘The Wild Captain Radio Tour’ & most recent self titled Blues album have won numerous awards in Australia & the U.S. Her third has just won the Australian Blues Chain award for Best New Talent of 2016. Her first, earned Best International in the Songwriters Assoc. of Washington (U.S.), Best Female in the Int. Acoustic Music Awards (U.S.) and the Aust.

With a touted U.S. tour on the horizon, her songs hitting the top of the Blues charts, festival bookings all over Australia as well as the release of her new album LET IT FLY, 2017 is looking to be a big year for Kate who is turning more than a few heads & is certainly one to get out & see live.
