She is currently working a major Gallery project in Devonport that will bring together all the best Artists in the North of Tasmania and feature them in one Venue. Kate grew up singing with her sisters in church every Sunday, music is a part of fibre and she can harmonise and lead with a voice that is both folky, melodic and a bit cheeky...

Together Kate and Brad love what they do... It's not your standard acoustic duo as they will adapt what they are playing according to the crowd they see in front of them and perhaps this is why most of their gigs are fully booked out in advance... The Von Rock Union are crowd pleasers.
