Kate Mick resides in Rhode Island. She gladly plays house shows, ghost shows, quiet shows, loud shows, faraway shows and close by shows. Just ask her, she's always up for an adventure with her banjo.
Kate dabbled in music all her life but never quite found the right instrument. When a guitar feels too bulky and a mandolin feels too tiny, a banjo feels...just right. When you're brought up on your parent's weird record collection of obscure 70's rock and your older sister's obsession with Fleetwood Mac and The Pixies; fuse that with the backdrop of 90's grunge and 00's depressive indie rock... well, you get someone who teaches herself how to play intimate, slightly sweet, dark and evocative banjo songs.
Kate Mick has been compared to Cat Power, Hurray For the Riff Raff, Sharon Van Etten, First Aid Kit and Hedy West. She enjoys playing her original songs as well as cover songs by Wilco, David Bowie, Tom Petty, Daniel Johnston, Karen Dalton, The Breeders, John Prine, and Bonnie Raitt, amongst others. She is constantly writing new, original songs.
Kate Mick is also a member of the Providence-based band, The SwampBirds!
