Kat Wright
Kat Wright
Kat Wright, whose voice is both sultry and dynamic, delicate yet powerful; gritty but highly emotive and nuanced, has been described as “a young Bonnie Raitt meets Amy Winehouse”. Add to that voice enough stage presence to tame lions, and the combination of feline femininity proves immediately enchanting. There’s soul flowing in and out of her rock ‘n’ roll with a serpentine seduction. Some of soul music’s sweet, grand dames belt, shout, seethe, and succumb, while Wright sings gently like a heartache’s apology. It’s funky in spots and beautiful all over. And it hurts a little … like it should.



“Frighteningly good.” -Boston Public Radio

“…jumped right off the screen in their Tiny Desk contest entry.” -NPR Music

“Her smooth and serene sounding voice gives any man the chills; kind of like the capabilities Grace Potter and Susan Tedeschi possess…” -Cider Mag

“…their shows are love and happiness. Be prepared to be blown away by Wright’s voice. I certainly was!”
-Portland Press Herald

“Gritty, powerful and sultry…” -Next2Shine.com

Julia Caesar
Growing from radical roots, Julia Caesar aims to reflect the light and the dark of the world around them. Weaving harmonies through gentle wandering melodies, heavy abstraction and explosive optimism, they stir up what might be trying to hide. Combining the talents of Liz Stafford (guitar and vocals), Katy Hellman (bass and vocals), Megan Rice (guitar and vocals) and Steven Lebel (drums and synthesizer), Julia Caesar is sure to make the mind bend and the body move.
