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
