Celebrated folk singer/songwriter Kate Campbell is best known for her poignant musical narratives and eloquent delivery.
Born in the Mississippi Delta to a Baptist preacher, Campbell’s experiences during the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s shaped her heart, character and songwriting. As a musical storyteller, Campbell has drawn repeated comparisons to Southern literary icons such as Flannery O’Connor, Eudora Welty and William Faulkner. She has collaborated with musical legends like legendary singer/songwriter Guy Clark and 13-time GRAMMY Award winner Emmylou Harris.
Campbell has been featured on NPR’s Morning Edition, All Things Considered, Live From Mountain Stage and The Bob Edwards Show. Her numerous accolades include a Mississippi Institute of Arts & Letters Award for the album Two Nights in Texas (2011). Campbell's eighteenth album, The K.O.A. Tapes (Vol. 1) (2016), presents profound stories told with her uncommonly tender touch.
