“A new show from the voice of Kat&Co centred on her American Blues Roots”
With a career spanning over 20 years, KAT PEARSON has shared a stage with many great artists, from Chicago Blues Queens Deitra Farr and Peaches Staten to Blues Hall of Fame inductees Mud Morganfield (Muddy Waters’s eldest son) and Lil’ Jimmy Reed, including LuLu, Jason Rebello, Chris Jagger, Tony Remmy, Andy Gangadeen, and many more.
Kat has also performed on multiple television programs and “Pop Promos” … Top of The Pop, Thank God Is Friday, Jonathan Ross, Richard & Judy, Chemical Brothers, Eternal, Boys II Men and Sly & Robbie.
However, 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 went on to guest on Acid Jazz, London Records and Music for Nations record labels.
Looking back to her upbringing, Kat hales from a family steeped in the tradition of Gospel hymns and Blues folklore; from Sharecropping in Oklahoma to Civil Rights riots in Los Angeles, her roots go all the way back to the cotton fields of rural Tennessee.
Whilst taking some time off in Spain, 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!
