Kate Ryan biography

Kate Ryan was born Katrien Verbeeck on the 22nd July 1980 in a small village named Tessenderlo in Belgium to Dutch parents. Kate developed interests such as horse-riding and water-skiing, which she both practises at quite a good level up to this very day. As virtually her whole family played either the guitar or the piano, gifted Kate developed an equally large soft spot for both instruments. In art school, Kate impassioned her teachers with her intangible feel for drawing and painting.

As her parents owned their own café and pub concerts are quite popular in Flanders, the region around her home town Meerhout got to know Kate's talent quite well. Armed with only a guitar and a considerable load of guts, Kate hit the stage and performed songs by Alanis Morissette, 4 Non-Blondes, Pointer Sisters or Aretha Franklin. Also, she toured as a backing vocalist with the Soapband, a renowned bunch of the country's foremost television actors. In studio, Kate honed her skills recording an album, which she partially co-wrote, with the local pop group Melt.

Then came 2001. Her big break came when one of her own creations, composed with the help of Andy Janssens, was picked up by the big boys. Scream For More, Kate's debut single, was produced by Phil Wilde, once the producer behind 2 Unlimited, Def Dames Dope and CB Milton. The Netherlands, Spain, Italy, Germany, South Africa, the UK and the States were the first in line to welcome the new star on the airwaves. In Belgium, Scream For More was a huge summer floorbuster (17 weeks charts) and gathered nominations for a Radio Donna Award and, as best single of the year, for an award of Belgium's biggest music television TMF. I did well in Europe to, peaking #27 in Germany, #15 in Austria, #12 in Denmark, and #57 in the Netherlands.

On October 8th, 2001 the second single UR My Love was released. This second hit saw Kate adding Finland, Israel, Mexico and several parts of South-America to her list. The video was released mid December, when she also performed several shows in Chicago ! It topped #17 in Belgium.

In 2002 Kate decided to have her way in French. Mylène Farmer's classic Désenchantée was converted into a dance version and the result exceeded all expectations, quickly reaching #1 in Belgium, and settling there for 6 weeks on end. It also landed the Dutch top 5, #2 in Germany and in Spain, #12 in France, Portugal and Denmark, #11 in Switzerland, #3 in Austria, #4 in Sweden and the Netherlands.

In June 2002 Kate’s debut album Different was released, including 12 tracks and 3 French bonustracks. This album combined rock, pop, dance and ballads. Kate co-wrote all tracks on the album. The release of the album in the USA was scheduled for July 23rd. There will also be a special double A-sided single, containing both UR (My love) and Désenchantée. The latter song is currently also set for the long-awaited release in France (July 2nd) and the UK (date to be confirmed), where it will hit stores on the prestigious Positiva label...

2003 : Kate Ryan released another Mylène Farmer cover : Libertine. It went #7 in Belgium, #7 in Germany, #6 in Spain, #48 in France, #26 in Switzerlan, #7 in Austria, #16 in Sweden, #15 in Denmark, #20 in Finland and #8 in Poland.

2006 : Kate Ryan won the preselections for Eurovision 2006 for Belgium. Her song, called Je t'adore, was a mix of French and English, it was released as single in February. Kate presented their song on the 18th of May at the contest, but was not selected for the final. Anyway, she went #1 in Belgium and Poland.

While Je t'adore had already gained golden status, Kate Ryan's next single was entitled Alive, released in August. The new album was out in September, in collaboration with Swedish producers Niclas Kings and Niklas Bergwal. Meanwhile.

In October, Kate was nominated twice for the TMF Awards, but she did not win. During the show, she performed a medly of her 2 latest singles. Kate Ryan's song Alive was used as theme for the Spanish real-TV show Gran Hermano 8 (the Spanish equivalent of Big Brother).

Kate's new single was entitled All For You, planned for release in mid-November. Success was moderate, the single reached #37 in Belgium and only #65 in Spain.

2007 : Alive was released in Germany on 12th January 2007. It went #4 in Belgium and #8 in Finland. The album was available there on 9th February 2007

The track We All Belong was presented at the end of May in D-Club in Antwerp and got an enthousiastic welcome. The song will be on her future new single, and will be played from June 15th in Belgium and later this year in the rest of Europe.
