What they say…
“Soul-drenched and powerful. Bluesy, jazz-tinged and oozing with sheer class!”
Music Republic Magazine
Kat Eaton is a Welsh-born, Sheffield-raised, London-dwelling soul/r&b artist, who over the last few years has been steadily making a name for herself both in the UK and overseas. Known for her powerhouse vocals, Kat is also adept at songwriting, tackling delicate and topical issue such as mental health, modern love or drunk dialling an ex.
Originally discovered through the radio show “BBC Introducing”, Kat‘s first singles “Giving It Up” and “The Joker” earned her strong support from BBC Radio 2, Robert Elms and Gaby Roslin on BBC Radio London, as well as BBC Introducing in Sheffield. “The Joker” was also play-listed at renowned Dutch station NPO 2.
Having already toured the UK/EU supporting various artists (Jools Holland, Marc Broussard, The Teskey Brothers, Mama’s Gun), selling out multiple headlines shows in London, co-writing with the likes of Ruby Turner, Caro Emerald and Andy Platts (Mama’s Gun / Young Gun Silver Fox) and breaking through to new territories via the national radio airwaves of Holland and Belgium, Kat has established herself as one of the hardest working and talented performers in her field.
Kat met long time collaborator & now partner Nick Atkinson at just 15 in Sheffield, a city that had a profound impact on Kat & Nick’s musical identity, with its rich lineage of working class musicians influencing the pair massively. Although Kat is very much the face of the project, behind the scenes Nick contributes with co-writing & production credits, making the music very much a collaborative effort between them both.
The result of their labor will be on full display on July 2nd, when Kat releases her debut album Talk To Me. While some debut albums show artists still finding their feet and sonic direction, Kat is unashamedly bold & confident in her abilities as a vocalist and songwriter, effortlessly merging soul and classic r&b throughout a mature and well-rounded 10 tracks that will no doubt solidify Kat’s place as an artist already at the top of their game and now ready to share the fruits of years of hard work to the world.
