Kat McLevey

Kat McLevey teamed up with Canadian singer-songwriter and producer Ian Foster for the release of her debut EP Drifter in May 2014. This release gained attention across the province and quickly built and solidified McLevey’s position as one of Newfoundland and Labrador’s most prestigious up-and-coming singer-songwriters. Exclaim! Magazine noted her as a “thoughtful young writer with poise and self-awareness beyond her years” and the province was listening.

A year later, McLevey and Foster worked together once again for McLevey’s highly anticipated full-length effort “Evergrown” which was released in August of 2015. According to Newfoundland’s alternative newspaper, The Overcast, McLevey had “lived up to her promise and eclipsed it” with a sophisticated, spare, highly controlled and moody sound that leaves a mark on its listeners. Already earning her two MusicNL awards (Female Artist of the Year and Emerging Artist of the Year), an East Coast Music Awards nomination for “Rising Star Recording of the Year” and a coveted spot on The Overcast’s triple-juried shortlist for the Borealis Music Prize, Evergrown has launched McLevey beyond the province to regional and national acclaim. She has grown from “prospect to powerhouse” and is no longer “one to watch,” but “one to catch up with.”

McLevey is currently studying Contemporary Writing and Production at the world-­‐renowned Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA.
