About the Artist Kathy Forste is a singer/songwriter from Lee’s Summit, MO. She has been performing professionally since 1992 playing in various venues from Los Angeles to Nashville from Seattle to Austin and many places in between. She has written, recorded, and produced three solo albums and one album with her band. Many call Kathy songs and style a cross between Mary-Chapin Carpenter and Janis Joplin. Her songs are deeply personal dealing with the struggles of loss, relationships, and an intimate look at some of the people she has encountered in her life. Writing and playing guitar has always been Kathy’s calling in life. She began writing songs at the age of 13. However, she took up and played several instruments over the years. She played trumpet and French Horn in Junior High and High School. She went on to minor in music at Central Missouri State University, playing French Horn and classical guitar. Over the years Kathy has picked up several more instruments. In 2015 she began teaching guitar, ukulele, banjo, and mandolin with a full schedule of students at a music store in Lee’s Summit, Missouri.
