“Don’t see just another girl with an acoustic guitar. Loren’s music has a rare emotional depth and a subtle rarefied beauty. I saw her make an absolutely packed church cry at Fairbridge Festival. To me, Loren Kate is an exciting and serious artist.” - Harry James Angus (The Cat Empire)

When Loren Kate finished secondary school, she set out in search of adventure. 

Armed with only a guitar, a backpack and a few dollars in her pocket, she jumped on a train and travelled 800km to Byron Bay on the NSW North Coast. In this bustling coastal town, Loren Kate began busking and learning more about music from the local street folk. 

It wasn’t long before the crowds began to gather to listen to her stories.   

Loren Kate is now an award-winning songwriter and has performed at festivals and sell-out shows across the country. 

Loren Kate has earned a reputation as being a humble and yet utterly captivating performer and brilliant storyteller. She is a timeless artist with the courage to write about things that are raw, honest and real. Her songwriting is undeniably beautiful, and she writes with a depth and passion that is rare and inspiring.
