It's always exciting to see someone's career grow from the start.  That's what we are getting with our Hometown Riser Kate Mallen.

The Long Island native who spent some time living in Rochester now calls Buffalo her home and we are glad to have such a talented young singer say that she's from "here."

You may have heard her name for the first time when we were running our Taste of Country Hometown Riser competition which she won.  She was up against some incredibly tough competition.  The final night at Riverworks was incredible.

Now, she's vying for the "National Championship" if you will, of the Taste of Country Riser competition and she would love your vote.  You can vote once a day for the duration of the contest by clicking here and choosing "Kate Mallen" for your vote.


Want to learn more about her?  Check out this incredible interview with Kate that really helps you learn more about who she is, where she came from, and where her love of music came from.  The interview was done by Newell Nussbaumer at Buffalo Rising and he did a great job showing you more about our Taste of Country Riser.

Good luck Kate!
