Kate Van Dorn is the lead singer, songwriter and creative behind the Long Island based art rock band, VAN DORN. Incorporating progressive elements with an old school feel, VAN DORN's roots borrow tremendously from America's desolation blues and folk music- the way Kate has performed most of her career, stripped down.
Upon forming what would ultimately be VAN DORN, the result is sonic heaviness and powerful density. Being classically trained on the violin, Kate introduces sweeping elements to VAN DORN that entangle and contrast against a gritty background. Kate's woeful yearning and emotive vocalizing is truthful and unique to her.
Kate and guitar player Koudi Wyoming are co-owners of Under Study Studios in Hampton Bays.
