Artist Portrait

Kate Havnevik

str, p,
Musician of Pop and Electronic
A.k.a. Kate Cunningham Havnevik

Kate Havnevik began her musical career wanting to be a classical- and jazz guitar player, but then at 14 she changed her mind ­ took a u-turn ­ and joined an all female punk band rehearsing and playing at Oslo’s illegally occupied punk HQ, Blitz. Kate Havnevik has a unique voice, which explores both the very deep and high reaches of her extraordinary vocal range. Her music is melodic, occasionally dramatic, but always very cool. With a touch of programming mixed with conventionally recorded instruments she creates the perfect sound-scape to dress her songs and voice. Kate is a skilled musician and plays the guitar and the piano as well as the melodica and occasionally the harp. She uses these instruments mostly for writing and recording purposes, but sometimes plays them at gigs to enhance the live experience. Recently, Kate Havnevik has come out of the recording studio and has started playing live gigs. Last year she played a successful gig at LA’s famous Viper Room. She also recorded a live session at the independent LA Radio station, KCRW, a personal request of Nick Harcourt, for his renowned music program Morning Becomes Eclectic. This was a follow up to her success on KCRW last year when she reached no. 5 on the station’s charts, with her demo “Breathe Deeper”. Kate Havnevik has recently been writing with artists such as Moby, Röyksopp, Noel Hogan (The Cranberries) & Tom Middleton. Kate Havnevik has been working closely with writer/producer Guy Sigsworth and quite a few of her songs are a result of this excellent collaboration. Other producers who have added to her sound are Yoad Nevo, Valgeir Sigurdsson, Paul Statham, Carmen Rizzo and more recently Marius De Vries.
