Annie O Presents Kate Davis

New York-Standard Sounds

Kate grew up as a jazz darling, but she grew into something significantly more dynamic. Days spent practicing and performing became nights spent writing music—cathartic indie rock—simultaneously informed by and rebutting of her training. Time intended for technique slipped into secret listening sessions of Beach House, Elliot Smith and TV On The Radio. In the same bright, arresting croon that ignited her youthful stardom, Davis created confessionals. Throughout twelve tumultuous tracks, she poetically reflects upon the intricacies of what it is to live, ruminating on topics too close to her heart; identity, self-worth, loss. Trophy will be released November 8, 2019 on Solitaire Recordings. Annie O caught up with Kate before her show at The Standard, East Village on Sept 9.
