Who is Kate Campbell?

Jamae Kathryn "Kate" Campbell is an American folk singer/songwriter.

Kate's songwriting follows in the southern literary tradition with an emphasis on a sense of place, race, and religion. Her story-filled songs feature quirky characters and often deal with the region's complex issues. John Prine, Nanci Griffith, Emmylou Harris, Rodney Crowell, Guy Clark, and Mac McAnally have provided guest vocals on her albums.

In addition to her Americana/Folk flavored albums, her catalog includes the all-acoustic Sing Me Out; Twang on a Wire, which features covers of songs made famous by female country artists of the 1960s and '70s; the piano-based 1000 Pound Machine; and two gospel CDs recorded at FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals with Spooner Oldham on keyboards. Her producers over the years include Johnny Pierce, Walt Aldridge, and Will Kimbrough.

Campbell sometimes performs with Pierce Pettis and Tom Kimmel as the New Agrarians.
