Bio

Recently seen in Gone Girl, and nominated for a Maverick Movie Award for best-supporting actress for her role in the feature film Badsville, directed by April Mullen, Kate Campbell is a diverse performer whose immense love for storytelling, music, and art began at an early age while growing up in Northern Ontario. This passion kept her busy singing in choirs, performing in plays and studying voice all through her school career. Kate also demonstrated a natural talent for athletics. She excelled at a national level in hurdles and was a gold medal champion at the provincial level in Track & Field. As much as she loved and was successful at sports, Kate turned down several athletic scholarships to study Musical Theatre Performance at Sheridan College. While in Toronto, she shot a number of TV and film projects, co-hosted the Latin American Awards, co-produced and starred in a hit production of Neil LaBute's The Shape of Things, and co-directed a benefit concert for St. Michael's Boys’ Choir featuring The Barenaked Ladies, John McDermott, and Michael Burgess.

 

Now an international singer and recording artist, Kate has enjoyed working with some of the industry's most celebrated talents: Robby Krieger of the Doors, Jeff Goldblum and his Mildred Snitzer Orchestra, and award-winning jazz vibraphonist, Nick Mancini. Kate is the vocalist for the Martini Kings, who, after 19 instrumental albums, have just recorded their first full-length vocal album entitled ‘Smile’, due out in the Spring. Kate released an EP last December entitled ‘i am that girl’ and regularly performs at Michael Holmes’ Purple Room Supper Club in Palm Springs, former “home” of the Rat Pack. 

 

Kate has partnered with Buck Productions to produce a dramatic miniseries based on a feature film script that she's written called 'Boundless' about the women pilots of the Second World War, inspired by her grandmother who was a pilot. She has spent the past several years researching these woman and other women pilots across Canada and the US. Kate is a student pilot and member of the Ninety-Nines Women's Flying Organization and she's on her way to obtaining her private pilot’s license.
