Kate Gaffney has been touring in support of her recently released album

The Coachman, a record that has garnered national raves. Produced by

Barrie Maguire (The Wallflowers, Natalie Merchant, Amos Lee), The Coachman

includes contributions from several esteemed musicians, including Steve Kimock,

Greg Leisz, Jackie Greene, Andrew Lipke and The Innocent Criminals.

Leaving her career as a social worker in 2002, Gaffney began to perform and

write alongside local artists, while soaking in the Americana music scene that was

flourishing in Sacramento at the time. She hit the road and returned to her native

East Coast, where she independently released two albums, Highways and The New

Then. Her regular touring led Kate to Austin, TX where she met even more of “the

good people” in music. Most notably, Gaffney was befriended by the late Clifford

Antone, Austin’s music mogul, who gave her the validation to keep on with her

musical calling. Gaffney spent recent years immersed in the Philadelphia music

scene, quickly becoming a standout favorite in the city’s top venues.

A permanent return to the west coast was only a matter of time for Gaffney. Kate

forever calls both coasts home, but it is in the West that she regained her musical

roots and brought her throwback but contemporary sound to the forefront. Music

lovers that span many genres have been reaping the rewards ever since!.
