Round About

Round About

"Round About's music is quirky, literate upbeat rock. Part guitar hero, part singer/songwriter, and part heavy groove, the words actually mean something and the melodies sound like a familiar friend, creating a unique yet accessible sound. Sometimes funky, sometimes rocking, sometime jazzy, sometimes even a little twangy, Round About blends the styles and skills of its members to create a sound that's definitely a sum greater than its parts. Their debut album "Hanging By A Thread" was released in 2012.

Kate Moran's music ranges from pop/rock and a little funk with a bit of soul to round out the sound! Her first CD, "On the Avenue," produced by Paul Ottinger (Virginia Coalition), is a collection of songs that they co-wrote. According to Moran, “Every experience we have, we learn something from, and I definitely get a lot of my lyrics and my thoughts from feelings that I have, so it all comes from a true place.”

In January 2012, Kate released, "Fight," a full band recording, produced by Jarrett Nicolay. The proceeds of "Fight", released as a single, will be donated to the Team Kass Foundation. The song was inspired by a friend who was battling cancer, Kate wrote "Fight" to help motivate her through the cancer treatments and the fight she was facing. Kass was a daughter, mother, sister, and an amazing light, and she is missed. Kate believes whatever you may be facing today, we all have one more fight. In July, 2013 the band released their first Official Music Video for the single in honor of Kass, directed by Dave Farah, and it can be found on YouTube,
