'One Tree Hill' Star and Singer Kate Voegele Dreams of Playing Live in Central Park
By Brittany Weiss Posted Apr 13th 2011 09:19PM
Kate Voegele has come a long way since she released her first demo in 2003. On May 17, ATO Records will release the multi-talented singer-songwriter and actress's junior album, 'Gravity Happens.' That same day, Voegele will premiere her new single, 'Heart in Chains,' on 'One Tree Hill,' performing it as her character, Mia.
At 24, Voegele believes she is stronger than ever. "This record's such an example of a lot of things I've been through over the last two years." The album encompasses Voegele's move to California and the beginning of a new chapter in her life. "I'm so happy to share this album with everybody!"
Voegele spoke to PopEater about her new album and what's next for her character, Mia, on 'One Tree Hill.' Read it here.
Your character is playing 'Heart in Chains' live on 'One Tree Hill.'
Yeah! It'll be a really fun way to introduce the record to the fans of the show. It's fun and it's upbeat and it's one of those songs I hope people want to blast in their car. I think it ended up being a perfect song for the show. Hopefully people will really respond when Mia plays it.
What's next for Mia?
Mia's been out for a couple episodes. Fans will see her come back for the finale, where she plays a new song and has a little bit more of a perspective on things. She left 'Tree Hill,' went on tour and sort of decided to get back in touch with her music. I think that Mia taking that break helps her to write new music and gain some perspective. It's kind of nice to be able to show that with her character because this season was so much fun!
Will Mia and Chase ever rekindle the fire?
I don't know ... Mia and Chase, they're definitely always going to be friends I think, but I don't know if Mia and Chase will get back together. It's a mystery. Mia and Chase have a couple scenes together in the finale and they're great, so we'll say that much!
Anyone you're dying to collaborate with, music-wise?
I'm dying to write with Zac Brown Band; any kind of collaboration with them would be awesome. I love their sound and I love the way they bridge the gap between rootsy pop and country sound.
What is your dream location to perform?
Every time I've seen a show at Madison Square Garden it's been absolutely incredible. I think it'd be really cool to play an outdoor show also, like a Central Park kind of thing. I'm such a fan of New York City. It's such an inspiring place, musically and culturally. I'd say a big outdoor Central Park concert would be my dream performance.
Do you have any crazy fan stories?
I've got the coolest fans on earth. I do remember one time on tour last year seeing a fan licking a side of the tour bus. I don't know how many tour buses you've been up close to, but they get really dirty. Really dirty. And I was like, "Wow, that's dedication."
