Episode 217 is with our dear friend and CCM Recording artist Kate Stanford.
Kate joined us before Christmas to discuss her EP and now has a brand new single that comes out on Valentine’s Day called “Your Heart.” She’s one of our favorite interviews and always a great conversation. You can pre-save her song now on all platforms. Find it at http://www.katestanfordmusic.com/
A native of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Kate grew up singing anywhere she could lend her voice. In 2019, one of her first solo shows was an opportunity to open for Jaci Velasquez. This was a pivotal moment in her blossoming career, as it reaffirmed her passion for songwriting, singing, and ministry.
Since that show, Kate has been honing her craft. She enlisted the talents of two-time GRAMMY nominee, writer/producer Cindy Morgan to help hone Kate’s songwriting and vocal talents, creating an unmistakable signature sound. Kate’s talent has caught the eye of many in leadership in Christian music and has opened the doors for her to perform at large-scale events such as LifeFest and Big Ticket Festival.
While music is always her passion, her drive doesn’t stop there. As she completes her senior year at The University of Texas, Kate balances her career with her education, staying focused on both her calling as an artist and as a student. She is even looking ahead to applying to law school or an MBA program after graduating to complement her ministry. She shares, “Finishing my degree is so important to me. With my major, I am learning how to better understand and communicate with people where they are, at any stage in life. With my minor in business, I hope to be able to better shepherd my career and be a good steward of the past that God has placed before me.”
