Track: Katt Rockell – Living Free
In high school, Katt joined an R&B group and it was not long before the group’s manager recognized her talents and urged her to pursue a professional singing career. The group eventually broke up, but she continued to perform in local talent shows and write poems that would eventually turn into songs. It was during those years that she realized singing was her passion and decided to pursue music full-time.
In 2010, Katt signed a publishing deal with BMG Music Publishing and began to focus her attention on writing for other artists. She has since collaborated with several elite and award-winning music producers including Rodney Jerkins (Michael Jackson, Toni Braxton, Jennifer Lopez), Younglord (P Diddy, Notorious BIG, Beyoncé) and BudaDaFuture & GrandzMuzik (50 Cent, Estelle, The Lox). She has co-written for a variety of national and international artists such as Marlon Roudette (Germany), Lauriana Mae, Joey Yung (China) and her songwriting accolades include a number 1 Top 100 single. Katt also penned two records on a new wave/dance project produced by Germany’s DJ Westbam and was a featured vocalist among the likes of Iggy Pop and Kanye West.
After teaming up with production heavyweights BudaDaFuture and GrandzMuzik in 2012, Katt discovered that the synergy with the duo was very special, so they began to work on her solo EP, entitled, Living Free. She wrote and arranged all of the tracks on the project and the result is a superior infusion of hip hop, old school soul and pop.
Katt’s riveting live stage show is filled with energetic highs and vulnerable lows. Her performances bring her songs to life and take the audience on a magical journey all her own. The experience is one that should not be missed and will linger in your mind long after the show is over.
