Bio

Katya Blue is the voice of Kathrin, a Blues/Rock/Country singer-songwriter. Her influences are The Rolling Stones, Janis Joplin, Billie Holiday, Johnny Cash, Dolly Parton, Kris Kristofferson, The Allman Brothers, Bad Company and Led Zeppelin.

What makes her band's sound different is that the musicians come from various styles which include blues, rock, alternative, heavy metal, country and even polka, all coming together, creating a rock-inspired blues/country feel.

Kathrin's music credits include:
1 - 'The New Voices of Freedom', She was a soprano for this rock gospel choir known for their backups on:
U2's 'I still haven't found what I'm looking for', as well as, Celia Cruz & Tito Puento albums -NYC

In 2011, Kathrin decided to sublet her NYC apartment to move back home to Philadelphia, PA to help her parents. It was then, she formed a band with her new guitar teacher Lou, a virtuoso guitarist. During a lesson she took out her original songs to practice chords, and from that day they have been co-writing and recording.

After finding the remaining musicians for the band, their first big gig was Gorgas Park Summer Concert Series. The president of the park heard Kathrin sing at a local karaoke bar, she then invited him to hear her band play their first gig at a block party. After hearing them he asked her to perform as the act for Gorgas Park's 10th anniversary of 9/11 concert. With immense pride & honor the band accepted and have been invited to have a recurring show on Gorgas Park's Summer Concert roster.

For the past year, Katya Blue have been performing at various local outdoor concerts and venues throughout Philadelphia & NYC and have been written up in local papers and online news sites. They have been gaining a following and look forward to playing the music festival circuit and gain a fanbase that will propel them to the top.
