Kat has also performed on multiple television programs and in “Pop Promos” including Top of The Pop, Thank God Is Friday, Richard and Judy, and Jonathan Ross.

It was her performance on The Word that won her a contract with Columbia Records, which led to extensive touring of the UK, Europe, and Australia. After a standing ovation at the Montreaux Festival she was asked to guest on other record labels such as Acid Jazz, London Records and Music for Nations.

Kat Person hales from a family steeped in the tradition of Gospel hymns and Blues folklore; her roots go all the way back to the cotton fields of rural Tennessee.

Kat was born in East Long Beach. At an early age, Kathleen’s family moved to the South Bay area of Los Angeles. For her 18th birthday, Kathleen’s parents took her and two younger brothers to London. Here she found an even more culturally diverse community, which clearly made an impact on young Kathleen who year after year kept coming back for more. The live scene was vibrant at the time and she couldn’t have enough of it; meeting musicians and gigging in venues like the King’s Head, The Dublin Castle, Ronnie Scott’s and the Jazz Café. It was only a matter of time before her music career took off, and she relocated in the UK to do what she loved best, singing.

But it was a few years later, whilst taking some time off in Spain, that Kathleen finally rediscovered a genre of music that was closer to her heart than she could have ever imagined. At an impromptu gig with a Blues band, she noticed her delivery came very naturally, bringing back a sound that had always been a part of the family’s tapestry. It was there and then that she realised what her true colours were, and she finally gave way to the Blues.

The release of “I Kat the Blues” in 2013, followed in 2017 by “Blues Is the New Cool”, are a testimony to the quality of Kat and her band. Their efforts were welcomed by extensive gigging and rave reviews from both sides of the Atlantic.
