Kathy Y. Rice was born and raised in the cosmopolitan city of Huntsville, Alabama, where her passion for music and art was recognized at an early age. She studied piano at age 6 and began formal voice training at age 12. After graduating from Alabama A & M University in Music, she began a parallel career in the federal government, which led to her living and singing in New York, Texas, Arizona and California.
After retuning home to Huntsville, Kathy embarked on a recording project with Record Producer, Kelvin Wooten, formerly of Toni! Tony! Tone! Kelvin brings a fresh sound to Kathy's original music, as he has for other singers that he's produced, such as Jill Scott, Erykah Badu and Kelly Price. Kelvin has recently completed projects with Earth, Wind, and Fire, and The Isley Brothers.
