NEW MUSIC is here!
I've been so excited to release Volume 1 of my new project, The Acoustic Soul Recordings. Comprised of three original songs, we focused on capturing the honest, authentic heart of each by stripping the production value (just vocals and guitar) to allow the music to speak for itself. Listen to it on all digital streaming services now!

Kate Stedelbauer is a Virginia-based singer/songwriter. Her musical influences include Joni Mitchell, John Prine, Margo Price, Kacey Musgraves, Emmylou Harris, Miranda Lambert and many other artists and songwriters in the Americana, Country and Folk. Kate’s songs range from poignant ballads to bouncy, tongue-in-cheek slices of life.
Words and stories have always mattered to Kate. As a kid, she was a voracious reader, which cultivated her appreciation for great storytelling. Her own writing skills became evident at an early age in school assignments, poems and short stories. Her musical education began with several years of violin in school. Upon turning ten years old she received her first First Act guitar, and with that, Kate’s love for words and music began melding together in songwriting as an outlet for her feelings and creativity.
Kate writes musical stories that are lyrically rich, painting clear pictures of the highs and lows of life. Matched with memorable hooks, her songs evoke personalities and places that invite the listener to find a bit of themselves within. Her debut EP, entitled, Mississippi, was recorded in Nashville and Virginia Beach, and released in March, 2017. Kate's new project, the self-released, The Acoustic Soul Recordings, will include multiple volumes, with Volume 1 available now. Volume 1 is comprised of three original songs recorded live at Soul Haven Studios in Virginia Beach, Va. Based on the concept of a "stripped" or "unplugged" production, Kate performs each song solo on the guitar. Check out The Acoustic Soul Recordings, Volume 1 on any digital audio service!
