Katie Kuffel

Katie Kuffel

A tongue-in-cheek, Seattle-based songstress smashing the piano in a manner that's not quite blues, not quite folk, and not quite like anything you've heard before. Delight your ears with the fuzzy, in-between spaces and lyrical turbulence that is Katie Kuffel's music.

Katie’s songwriting is both innovative and thoughtful, with a contemporary sound that draws from blues, jazz, and folk music as well as her training in classical cello and jazz piano. An openly queer artist, she explores concepts of sexuality and femininity throughout her works.

Katie has been featured as the musical act in popular podcast Welcome to Nightvale, and in PopMatters as one of the ‘best musical hopes to break out on 2016.'

In the words of author Adam Finley:

Pearls sounds like alternate-reality Regina Spektor, heavily steeped in the Pacific Northwest with bright piano and a gorgeous voice gliding, rich and effortless, through craftily constructed songs that balance whimsy and self-awareness.

In 2016 Katie organized, recruited, composed, and crowd-funded the Fremont Abbey Sessions, a local, community-driven music and video recording project highlighting Seattle’s musicians, talent, spaces, and resources.

Pearls is available on Spotify, iTunes, Amazon and Bandcamp, and Katie can be found performing at venues throughout Seattle and the greater Pacific Northwest.
