Kat Gang Kat Gang

Kat is an exciting, talented example of the current new generation of singer/ songwriters who presents her own brand of jazz-influenced, contemporary music to an ever-increasing and diverse audience.

From her unique take on the traditional jazz standards, to her personal and soulful interpretations of the music of Joni Mitchell, Rickie Lee Jones and even the Arctic Monkeys and Oasis, this Boston born vocalist wins appreciation in theatres, clubs, restaurants and even bateaux on London’s River Thames.

She is in constant demand and regularly works as a duo with jazz guitar or piano, as well as with many of Europe’s leading musicians in big bands; nonets; as part of an eight piece Ella Fitzgerald tribute and with her own trio and quartet.

Her passion for jazz was developed at the famed Berklee School of Music in Boston, USA and she honed her skills further at New York University where she earned a Bachelor’s degree, majoring in drama and voice. She is now based in New York.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
