Blending folk stylings and country storytelling, Kate Mahood’s songs portray an honesty and vulnerability that resonate deeply with her listeners. Heartfelt and often haunting lyrics coupled with stirring vocals and beautifully crafted guitar melodies, give Mahood a unique and original sound that is truly her own.
Growing up with artists like Neil Young, Gillian Welch and Paul Kelly on high rotation, this self-taught guitarist & songwriter refined her craft for over ten years before ever taking to the stage. Best known for her captivating and intimate live shows, Mahood has been winning over fans around Australia since she first performed at the Tamworth Academy of Music in 2017. Since then she has gone from strength to strength, making regular appearances at festivals and events and opening for artists including Busby Marou, Harry Manx and The Whitlams.
Mahood’s much anticipated debut single ‘Man Of Honour’ was released in January of 2022 followed by ‘Silver and Gold’ in May, a soaring folk rock song about our connection to the world around us. In February of 2023 she released ‘Changeling’, a lush alt-country ballad based on the true story of a young woman from Ireland. Mahood’s most recent single ‘Not Afraid Of The Dark’, a nostalgic reflection on her childhood promises to further unveil the regional singer-songwriter to a wider audience around the world. Mahood is currently based in the coastal town of Yeppoon, Queensland with plans to release a full EP late in 2023.
