Discovery: Kate Rena

Kate Rena is a singer-songwriter and musician from Germany – The Hardest is her latest pretty folk song to be released.

By Jane Howkins

The Hardest is incredibly beautiful – the opening guitar melody which runs through the song is gorgeous and the strings that appear later on only add to this beauty more. The music itself reminded me a little of Laura Marling’s earlier work (the main chord sequence in particular) and it sounds quite understated at times, but the quiet nature of the song only serves to make it sound beautiful – check out The Hardest below and see what you think!
