Kat Zel is an active singer/songwriter and musician in the vibrant Edmonton music scene. Her dynamic vocalizations and profound lyrics, stir the soul. Summer 2018 saw Kat record several singles for her first EP. A surprise nomination for the 2018 Rising Star category at the EMA’s came next. While a national video submission to CBC’s Music Challenge’s with a cover, of “Rolling Stone”, by Reuben and the Dark, got excellent feedback. Judges compared Kat to “the next Janis Joplin”, and commented that “Her unique psychedelic sound will resonate with your soul.” Kat Zel will leave you mesmerized! Rhea March of C.J.S.R. radio, wrote the following: “Kat has been delivering music for the masses with groovy beats, hooky songs, relatable lyrics and great musicianship. Her vocals are raw and edgy – perhaps best described as Sass Jordan meets Melissa Etheridge with sprinklings of a young Deborah Harry. She’s one to watch – that’s for sure”.
RnB/Pop artist Kathryn Johnson carries a vintage sound with a modern twist. Since her upbringing, music and performing have always been an important part of self expression. She aims to help bring people together by telling relevant and relatable stories through song, in hope that we can come to see the world from a variety of perspectives through the power of music.
