Kat grew up in New York City, and has been playing music from a very young age. Having studied classical piano for 7 years as a youngster, she began writing songs on guitar at age 11. In the 90’s, Kat sang in the electronic band Lypid, backed by Brooklyn label Statra, where her collaborations were included on numerous licensed club releases throughout the US and Europe. She continued her growth as a performer and singer with her original folk-rock band; gigging regularly at NY clubs like Rockwood Music Hall and Living Room, and singing backup for numerous city bands. She was active in the Williamsburg/LES music scene, and released her first CD in 2008 called “Oh the Humanity” which received rave reviews in indie music publications.
