Caleb Neff and Kate Skales rocking out in studio.

Songwriter, guitarist, rocker and vocal powerhouse Kate Skales performs live in studio while she’s back in Southwest Florida for a series of performances.

Skales’ music career began to take off a few years ago when she moved to Southwest Florida. She’s since relocated to Los Angeles where she continues writing and performing prolifically.  Her debut EP “Ready For Me,” dropped in 2018 and she’s hard at work on a second album.

We’ll catch up with Kate Skales about what she’s been up to in Los Angeles and we’ll hear her perform some new songs along with fellow musician and music engineer and producer Caleb Neff.  Neff runs Juniper Recording in Cape Coral and performs with the alt-country rock band Rosaline.
