About us

            May Be Fern is a four-piece queer non-male funk rock band based in Denver, Colorado. The band’s style is a passionate and cohesive collaboration of each individual member’s diverse musical background, producing a sound that is greater than the sum of its parts. The foursome became quickly aligned with a shared vision: to create a unique sound that transcends genre and expectation. May Be Fern welcomes you to join us as we share our love with the world!

Meet The Band

Kate Fern

She has been performing all her life but started her time in the spotlight with musical theater where she worked professionally for over 12 years. There is nothing she loves more than bringing smiles to other peoples faces and feels the best way to do that is with art and music especially when it is coming from the heart. Playing with May Be Fern is sincerely fulfilling to her and is the perfect way to spread the four-some's shared passion.
