Sheâ€™ll never forget the first time she experienced Elton John, Cat Stevens, Janis Joplin, The Doors, Allman Brothers, and of course, Aretha f***ing Franklin.
What about this music touches her? Itâ€™s the vulnerability & the audacity. The raw acknowledgment that this thing of Life is wild & messy - sometimes painful, sometimes joyful, always wondrous.
Kaitâ€™s work is rooted in blues, soul, & rock nâ€™ roll, with a sprinkling of doo-wop, gospel & classical thrown in when sheâ€™s feeling fancy.
Influences aside, the through-line in her music & performance is honesty.
For Kait, writing, singing, & playing are modes of meditation, investigation, & ultimately, connection.
To write is to dig, and to perform is to share oneâ€™s findings. She hopes that in her sharing, someone out there will pick up the glint of their own reflection.
(Kait Ellis is currently based in Los Angeles & plans to release her debut EP this summer. Stay tuned!)
