Matt Buff Show Presents The Gift of Music - Singer/songwriter Kate Boytek joins the show. Her first official single HELL OR HIGH WATER is currently catching fire online and through increasing radio play and is currently available for purchase via Apple Music.
Singer/songwriter Kate Boytek hit the stage for the first time at the tender age of five at her local country fair talent show. Singing opportunities were few and far between in Kate's tiny hometown of Logan, West Virginia, nestled deep in the Appalachian coalfields. Kate sang at dozens of local charity events, directed her church choir, and eventually attracted the attention of West Virginia native and legendary Grand Ole Opry and Bradley’s Barn audio engineer Vic Gabany. With Vic’s help and guidance from her late musical director and drummer Scotty Hawkins (Reba McEntire, Kix Brooks), Boytek pursued her dream in Nashville and appeared with country hitmakers Tyler Farr, Eric Paslay, Trick Pony, and others.
But like a sad country song, Kate's goals of a life in music were turned upside down when she was forced to walk away from her dreams for almost a decade. Now a wiser and more seasoned artist, Kate Boytek has re-emerged with a songwriting style that is both fresh and contemporary and yet has echoes of the classic singer-songwriters from the 1970s. Her first official single HELL OR HIGH WATER is currently catching fire online and through increasing radio play and is currently available for purchase via Apple Music.
Boytek's upcoming debut album will include tracks written by Kate along with veteran songsmiths including Britton Cameron (Lonestar, Sister Hazel), Kim McLean (Loretta Lynn, Trisha Yearwood, and Tim McGraw), Brian Carper (Aaron Lewis). With career guidance from veteran music executives Bernard Porter (Jason Aldean) and Burke Allen (America’s Got Talent Winner Landau Eugene Murphy Jr.), a treasure chest of first-class songs, and a personality that shines through like few others, Kate Boytek’s career, like the title of one of her new songs, is poised to go anywhere. And we’ll be watching.
