New York City-based artist Kate Mills has spent years living in the shadows of her dreams, working in a safe job as a Social Worker. Today, however, Kate steps forward with assured artistry, releasing a debut album that captures the warmth and orchestrations of her beloved era of 1970s Laurel Canyon singers-songwriters, while enhanced by today’s crisp modern production standards. Kate is a storyteller whose lyrics and emotional perspective are uniquely informed by schooling and time in the field of social work.
“Honest Mistakes,” is the first single to be released from her upcoming full-length album. The song is masterfully dynamic—intimate and personal during the storytelling verses and expressively layered during the choruses. Conceptually, it’s a song about good people making not-so-good life decisions, and grappling with feelings of regret. Here, Kate poetically weaves in various observational stories from her life.
