Kate Hinote Trio – 6PM Seating
The Kate Hinote Trio is:
Kate Hinote / Vocals
Matthew Parmenter / Violin
David Johnson / Acoustic Guitar
Kate Hinote is an award-nominated Detroit singer and songwriter performing predominantly original material she has co-written for her various projects, including Alt-Rock band, The Blueflowers, which she has been fronting for the last 10+ years. Hinote has a voice that’s both cinematic and operatic, a mood-setting, mellifluous intonation that fits inside candle-lit lounges, late summer night feverdreams, or as a torch song from a surreal soundtrack.
The Kate Hinote Trio is a contemporary folk ensemble and features Hinote’s longtime Blueflowers bandmate, David Johnson, on guitar and Matthew Parmenter (Discipline) on violin. John Sinkevics of Local Spins and WYCE in Grand Rapids, MI, describes the trio as a “new indie-folk/prog-folk trio which manages to not only retain and showcase Hinote’s haunting, mesmerizing vocals but centers them in a fetching, gorgeously arranged acoustic pillow.”
In addition to performing original material written by both Hinote and Parmenter, individually and collaboratively, the Trio performs select modern and retro covers, including a handful of songs by other Detroit-based songwriters. Those songs are among those featured on their debut album, Near, recorded at Tempermill Studios in Ferndale, MI and released in March 2021. Near provides an introduction to the Trio’s live sound, combining brooding, intimate and reflective moments, with drama that arrests one’s attention.
Thriving on the excitement of performing live to connect with long-time friends and new listeners, Kate Hinote Trio’s 2022 tour dates included 40 shows at venues and festivals throughout Michigan, Ohio, and Kentucky, among them an hour-long broadcast performance and interview at the NPR/PRX syndicated program “Red Barn Radio” out of WEKU in Lexington, KY. With a creative fire burning, and new material in the works, the Trio pushes full steam ahead towards a second album and expanding their playing radius further to surprise more audiences with their unique sound and intricately arranged songs. https://katehinote.com/katehinotetrio
