KATE VOEGELE + TYLER HILTON
_ Main Venue _
Following a string of sold-out shows, Kate Voegele & Tyler Hilton have announced their return to Dublin as they hit the road this June
Hailing from a little suburb of Cleveland, Ohio, Kate Voegele ﬁrst picked up a guitar at age 15. Inﬂuenced by the rock and roll history of the city and her father’s song writing, she began to pen her own songs from the minute she learned to play her ﬁrst three chords. Voegele embraced this newfound passion, recording her ﬁrst EP during her freshman year of high school, and soon after landed gigs alongside artists like Counting Crows and John Mayer. Those shows quickly led to attention from labels in New York and LA, and Kate spent the majority of her high school years diving headﬁrst into a career in music.
After high school, Voegele decided to attend Ohio’s Miami University, where she quickly found new inspiration, and simultaneously found herself uploading song after song to her MySpace page. Kate managed to get the attention of the social network’s founder, Tom Anderson, and just a few weeks later, she became MySpace Records’ ﬁrst signed artist.
Over the next couple of years, Voegele toured the country playing hundreds of shows. While traveling through LA, Kate auditioned on a whim and would eventually land the role of Mia Catalano on the CW show, “One Tree Hill.” What was supposed to be a two-episode run became a four-season recurrence, and Kate found herself performing eleven of her original songs to millions of viewers over the course of the show.

Tyler Hilton was singing and playing in coﬀee houses as a 15-year-old, when a chance encounter with Los Angeles radio personalities Mark and Brian from KLOS led to multiple appearances on their radio show, live concert dates with the duo, and national exposure. He released his ﬁrst album independently shortly thereafter, which led to major label interest and eventually signing to Maverick/ Warner Records where he released “The Tracks of Tyler Hilton” which garnered two singles on the Billboard Top 40 charts.
While on tour promoting the album, Tyler was cast as his child hood hero Elvis Presley in “Walk the Line” where he worked with T-Bone Burnett on the soundtrack, and for which he received a gold record. An opportunity to sing on TV’s “One Tree Hill,” a notorious breeding ground for new musical talent, led to a series long run, several appearances on MTV’s “TRL” with the cast, and a national tour with Gavin DeGraw and Michelle Branch who also sang on the show. Taylor Swift admitted to being a fan, and asked Tyler to star in her music video “Tear Drops on My Guitar” which became a huge crossover hit.
Tyler then started his own label, Hooptie Tune Records, and released “Forget the Storm”. It became the ﬁrst record of Tyler’s to gain international success and led to several European tours and a new fervent fan base. His follow up, the mellow folky country album “Indian Summer,” was recorded live in studio with a bluegrass band including his uncle, Tommy Hilton, on guitar. While recording, Tyler landed a role in Halle Berry’s “Extant” on CBS and continued to ﬁlm the show over the course of its two-season run, touring and ﬁlming the holiday movie “Christmas on the Bayou” with Randy Travis, Ed Asner, and “One Tree Hill” alum, Hilarie Burton, for which he also recorded the single “One Foot in the Bayou”. Following the end of “Extant,” Tyler worked on a pilot for the ABC sitcom, “The Fluﬀy Shop” alongside Gabriel Iglesias. Tyler is currently based in Los Angeles, where he’s working on a new album.
