Having recently relocated to Austin, Kat’s music career has taken a new and exciting direction. A little history: Kat was raised on a steady diet of Texas blues, and Patsy Cline twang, along with solid rock sensibilities. Singing since the age of 10 she found herself drawn to Southern rock, where real life, powerful rhythms, and the fine art of storytelling all come together. Kat brings to her music today 15 years of voice training, a firm foundation and the strong sense of history and form.

Her 2 critically acclaimed CDs are receiving worldwide airplay, prompting Blues Revue Magazine to gush “Cairns’ remarkable voice is as tough as Angela Strehli and
as nuanced asBonnie Raitt.”

She began singing professionally in 1990 and received a phenomenal response from audiences with her rough and tumble voice and her engaging, energetic style. Her vocal styling have often been compared to those of Janis Joplin, Bonnie Raitt, Grace Slick, and Melissa Etheridge, yet she delivers the fresh outlook that only a new generation of bluesy rock singers can capture.

She has performed at over 800 venues throughout the West coast with such artists as Tommy Castro, Robben Ford, Coco Montoya, Delbert McClinton, John Mayall, Maria Muldaur,
Trisha Yearwood, and Etta James. Her powerful stage presence
along with her genuine warmth adds up to a great show –
anytime, anywhere!
