Kate Laura McGill was born on 10th March 1990 in Carmarthen, Wales. There is a buzz going around about McGill and her Youtube video covers have gained a cult following (44,000 subscribers and over 9 million views). Well those covers are superb and her vocals send shivers up my spine considering she is only 20 years old.
In 2009 Kate won the SkinDividual contest by having the biggest guestlist. Her prize was her very own gig which featured the likes of Bombay Bicycle Club, New Young Pony Club and Ladyhawke. This gig took place at the Relentless Garage in Islington and Kate even had the chance to share the stage with them.
It is 2010 and McGill is now living in Plymouth, gave up both University and part time job to focus on her music. I for one have faith in her and I think she has what it takes to cut it in the music industry. Kate has been touring and will be back gigging Jan/ Feb time. While there are plans to tour stateside.
So Kate McGill I see having a bright future. If her covers are to go anything buy the album is going to be fantastic and a must have for any record collection. If you have not heard of her before I advise you to check her out and if you like go to one of her tour dates next year. It is always best to catch someone before they become big.
Trust me 2011 will be McGill’s year.
