Rock N’ Roll Ain’t For Me, the 2017 debut from Raleigh singer-songwriter Kate Rhudy, reinterprets well-worn folk with a new vibrancy. “I’ve always written letters to people, and then never sent them,” Rhudy recalls, "Rock N’ Roll Ain’t For Me is the collection of those letters, journal entries—in all their glorious honesty." Rhudy, who grew up playing both classical violin and fiddlers' conventions, brought her collection of writings into the studio alongside collaborator and producer Andrew Marlin of Mandolin Orange. The album sounds warm even in its loneliest moments. “Someone once broke my heart by handing me a toothbrush,” sings Rhudy. You can’t help but feel close to her, you can’t help but feel that you’ve just made a friend.


“One of the Triangle’s sharpest young songwriters” - INDY Week


“For those tired of Americana music from the male perspective, give Kate Rhudy's debut a shot.” -The Strangers Almanac

“Likely to Bring a smile to faces of listeners…the Raleigh-based singer-songwriter’s sweet folksy vocals and quick strings wield quips with surgical precision.  [Rhudy] cuts straight through the bullshit of some guy we have all met at some point or another.” -encore
