Kat Zel is an active singer/songwriter in the vibrant Edmonton/Alberta music scene.
Utilizing looper pedals for guitar and vocals Kat can fill an event space with unique sound. The depth of soulful artistry in her profound lyrics and her dynamic vocalizations truly stir the soul. "She's one to watch for sure", says Rhea march.
Summer 2018 Kat recorded several singles for her first solo EP. Received a surprise nomination for Rising Star category at the 2018 EMA’s along with a national video submission to CBC’s Music Challenge, all won excellent accolades. CBC Judges compared Kat to “the next Janis Joplin”, and commented that “Her unique psychedelic sound will resonate with your soul.”
Rhea March of C.J.S.R. radio, wrote: “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”.
January 2019, at the Alberta Country Music Awards Kat was invited to perform her 3 new singles, on the singer/songwriter stage. “River”, “The Fall” and “Lifeline”, can all be heard here: www.KatZelMusic.com
