About Kat Wright:

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”.

There’s soul flowing in and out of her rock ‘n’ roll with a serpentine seduction.

And it hurts a little … like it should.
