On Wednesday, I got to hang out at the NYC stop on Kate Voegele's "Lift Me Up" tour! The show kicked off with Angel Taylor opening for Kate at the Highline Ballroom, and her song "Epiphany," was such a girl power anthem! If you like Colbie Caillat, you'll totally be into this L.A. native -- she even wore flip-flops on stage!
Kate came on stage with a bang, running right up to the mic in black boots and gloves, tons of bangles, and a watercolor-inspired dress. She talked to the crowd in between every song -- fave topics were One Tree Hill and how psyched she was to be in New York. Kate loves the city so much, she wrote "Manhattan From The Sky" about the borough! She opened her set with her newest single "99 Times" and closed the set with a rockin' version of "Only Fooling Myself," off her first record. It was also really cool getting to chat with her, find out what she had to say about her music and One Tree Hill here!
We got to hear all the great tunes she's premiered on One Tree Hill, too, like "Lift Me Up" and "Forever And Almost Always." It's official -- as One Tree Hill's Mia Catalano or as herself, Kate puts on a awesome show! She even ended her set with my fave song off her first record, "Only Fooling Myself" -- I made sure to let her know that when we met her later that night. Now I'm so psyched for her new CD, A Fine Mess--it drops on Monday, May 18!
After the show, I stopped backstage to chat with Angel Taylor, one of Kate's opening acts, and she had a shout out for you guys. Check it out below!
