Kate Earl is an American singer-songwriter. Earl was born in Anchorage, Alaska and began playing piano at age four, sang in her church choir, and began playing the guitar when she was 17. The young singer nursed the dream to lead a musician's life in between shifts at her parent’s small-town gas station. That dream became a reality when Earl moved to Los Angeles in 2004, where her talent was promptly recognized and led to a record deal with The Record Collection.

Her debut album, “Fate Is the Hunter,” was released in May 2005. Earl left Record Collection in 2007 and signed with Universal Republic the following year. A self-titled album, “Kate Earl,” was released as a digital download in August 2009 and in physical formats in November 2009.

In 2012, Earl signed with Downtown Records. Her third album, “Stronger,” was released in November 2012, and was written and recorded with Brett Dennen, Blake Mills, and other well-respected Los Angeles musicians. The first single from the album, “One Woman Army,” was released in September 2012.
