Kate Voegele sat down to answer fan questions pulled directly from her MySpace blog. The singer/actress was talked about what inspires her music, wanting to be in the music industry since she was 15 and learned to play guitar, wanting to collaborate with Carole King, what it’s like being a singer and actress, advice for aspiring musicians, plans to tour internationally, her biggest inspiration, and more.
“For me, my inspiration comes from a lot of different things, but mostly just things I see going on in my everyday life,” Kate said about where she gets her inspiration for songwriting. “I think my personal experience is where I find music from a lot. I want to write music that other people can listen to and feel like they can relate to.”
On her dream collaboration with an artist dead or alive, Kate said, “I wold love to collaborate with Carole King. She’s a huge influence of mine and her ‘Tapestry’ record was the first album I ever bought. I just think she’s an insanely talented songwriter and singer.”

Kate Voegele took MySpace Fashion shopping around trendy Robertson Blvd in Los Angeles. The singer/actress showed some of her favorite looks for day and night and they helped her pick out an outfit to perform in.
“Shoes is a huge thing for me just because they can totally make an outfit,” Kate says in the clip. “Especially on stage or any event or something. You can wear something pretty basic and then put a great pair of shoes with it and that totally changes everything.”
Video of the shopping trip at MySpace has since been removed.
Kate Voegele made a video to show fellow-guitar players how to play her new single, ’99 Times’. Watch via YouTube below.
Kate Voegele is out with the music video to her new single ’99 Times’, the second release off the Bay Village, Ohio actress/singer’s second full-length album ‘A Fine Mess’, out now on MySpace Records/Interscope. Watch the Frank Borin directed video via YouTube below.
Kate Voegele was interviewed by YoungHollywood.com at an in-store at Borders, where the singer/actress gave fans an inside look at her live acoustic show, her new video for ’99 Times’, and life on the set of ‘One Tree Hill’.
“Being at a bookstore, it’s like you’re sitting in someone’s living room,” Kate said about the Borders venue. “I love that because I’m a super informal person. I like to be that way with my fans or my friends or with anybody, so it’s gonna be great.”
On still believing in her career being unpredictable, Kate said, “Definitely. I think that this new record is called ‘A Fine Mess’ for a reason. It’s chaotic, but the beauty is in the chaos. It makes it fun. I’ve just really enjoyed the ride a lot.”
“’99 Times’ is one of my favorites from the new album [‘A Fine Mess’] because it’s just a fun song to get up and sing,” Kate explained. “It’s a driving rock song. You kinda get to mess up your hair. It’s a song about being lied to. About being in a relationship where somebody’s unfaithful, and you didn’t know about it for awhile and you feel real stupid.”
