Kat Williams

In this day and age when pop princesses dominate the airwaves, Kat Williams fills a void that has been severely neglected for years. She satisfies a yearning that a great percentage of music lovers have been waiting to be fulfilled; a return to emotive Truth and Honesty in music rarely found today. As so many of the greatest performers in history, vocalists like Ella Fitzgerald, Dinah Washington, Nina Simone, Sarah Vaughn, Mavis Staples, and many others, are aging or have passed on, Kat has taken up the torch and is reaching a new generation that never got to experience these masters in person.

Ms. Williams, like many of the Greats, comes from a humble beginning. Born in Buffalo, NY in 1967 to a 14 year old mother she met only once, she became the 31st foster child in the home of Mary and L.C. Williams, who later adopted her. Beginning at age nine, she spent the rest of her childhood caring for her adoptive mother who was slowly dying of cancer. Shortly after her 17th birthday, both Mary and L.C. passed away and Kat found herself homeless. With a fiery passion for life, her exuberant personality, and her undying perseverance, she blossomed gracefully into a strong and independent woman.

In 1997, Kat moved to Asheville, NC and soon took the town by storm, becoming the most sought after singer in the region. She bared her soul to the crowd, inviting audiences in for a glimpse of a truly phenomenal woman and an authentic, from the heart, performer. Years later, Kat's musical philosophy is "I have no competition- I can only give you the best of me." Filled with a passion for song, an astonishing animated style, a spirited sense of humor, and that remarkable laugh, Kat takes the stage and makes magic happen.

Kat has performed with solo pianists, big bands, and a full symphony orchestra. She sang the score to a ballet production of Porgy and Bess to rave reviews. Out of hundreds of people who auditioned, she was chosen to open for Jay Leno on his comedy tour of the area. In 2003 a local playwright wrote an entire musical around her, which was later performed Off-Broadway in New York. She was personally requested by the actor Robin Williams as the featured entertainer at a private party he was hosting.

In addition to covering standards and classic torch songs (the way they were MEANT to be sung), she writes much of her own material. Singer, actress, and songwriter, Kat is truly a triple threat. Though she is constantly in demand, she is loyal to her many fans, maintaining personal friendships with many of them. She is truly a remarkable woman and an electrifying and unforgettable performer.
