Kate Porter


Band to Join, Vocalist.


Hi everyone, I'm Kate! I'm a drummer and drum teacher from Newark in the Midlands. The last few years have enabled me to be part of extensive tours of the UK/Ireland/Europe with a punk/rock band. I've had the privilege of working with professional musicians at a high level, including gigs on the Main Stage at The Isle of Wight festival, Silverstone Grand Prix and numerous festivals and O2 venues. I am looking to join a band of good people who are very committed to a great sound and stage presence. I think a charismatic front person is really important. I'm happy playing covers, but also happy to be creative in writing new music if the opportunity arrises. I can play to click, can cover most styles but specialise in Rock, Pop, Punk, Alternative, Funk, Blues, R&B and Jazz.
