Hetty Kate

“A charismatic and technically gifted vocalist whose gorgeous timbre carries echoes of Peggy Lee, June Christy and Julie London.” Chris May - All About Jazz (USA) 2011

Hetty Kate is a Melbourne-based jazz vocalist, whose performing style is distinguished by her pure tone, phrasing and thoughtful delivery of the music within the Great American Songbook. Since her performing debut in 2006 Hetty has been invited to sing in North and South America, Europe, Asia and Australia, both with her own ensembles, and also as a guest vocalist for local jazz groups and big bands.

“Hetty Kate’s voice overflows with a natural musicality. Hetty can do no wrong, whether she is singing a familiar standard, infused with relaxed charm and style, or trying her hand at something new and filled with innocent bravado…” Richard Fields - 3CR (AU) 2010...

”...a charismatic and technically gifted vocalist whose gorgeous timbre carries echoes of Peggy Lee, June Christy and Julie London....”- Chris May, All About Jazz (Sep 22, 2011)

“…Hetty is based in Australia which is their massive good fortune and Britains loss. She has the most gently seductive 'little girl' voice I’ve heard since first encountering the (then!) young Ella and June Christy. And she has a masterful way with lyrics, bringing them to vibrant and exciting life as if each were an expression of her own private thoughts….we’ll hear a lot more of Hetty Kate in the future.” Brian Harvey - www.radiojazz.co.uk

“…Hetty Kate’s voice overflows with a natural musicality. Hetty can do no wrong, whether she is singing a familiar standard, infused with relaxed charm and style, or trying her hand at something new and filled with innocent bravado…” Richard Fields 3CR Radio Melb AU (www.3cr.org.au)

“…there is never a single note of irony in any of Hetty’s effortless interpretations of these old-time, all-time classic songs. This is a CD which can make any tough day sweet again…” H. William Stine, Turntable For One, WMNR-FM (wmnr.org)

“(It's) a great feeling when you recive a cd on your desk and it truly delivers when you put it in to listen. Beautiful enchanting and some fine reworking of Jazz Standards a big future ahead!” Christian Bragg, Head of Music. Jazz FM (www.jazzfm.com)

“Hetty's got a lovely relaxed way of singing that puts listeners at ease (rather like the wonderful Susannah McCorkle, now sadly dead). Some singers are so keen to show off their technique that one as a listner gets nervous. Hetty just swings along and takes us for a joyful ride, as Susannah did.. and she made 14 CDs for Concord in the '90s.” Steve Robertson “The Swinging Years”, 3RPC in Portland. 2-4 Thurs
