KatRose is an exciting talent who has emerged onto the Texas music scene with an impact evoked by her voice, music and songwriting. KatRose is no newcomer to music as she brings with her a wealth of musical experience in various bands and directing church choirs for several years. During that time, she has written and performed her own material as well as arranged many covers and traditional hymns.
KatRose is warm, openhearted and honest with a sound that lies somewhere between folk, rock, country, blues and gospel. Her performances convey her passion for life and her love of live music. The great female singer/songwriters such as Stevie Nicks, Joan Baez, Jewel, Indigo Girls, Heart, Carole King, Caroline Aiken and countless others have strongly influenced KatRose not only in music, but also in her philosophies of life itself and the world around her. KatRose has honed her skills around venues in Houston, Austin, the campfires at Kerrville, as well as performances and jams around the country. Kat has been busy this summer touring the US and Canada. Plans are in the works for a Summer of 2006 UK tour, and Summer of 2007 Austalian tour.
As a prolific songwriter, KatRose paints sequences of vivid and passionate stories. From personal tales, powerful lyrics on social issues or pure emotion on her journeys into romance and passion, KatRose absorbs the listener as she creates her canvas of musical images. Power & Passion CD developed in the hands of Saylor White and Chris Collins at their Houston A Songwriter''s Studio. When asked about her recent recording experience, Kat''s eyes glint stating, "This has been a magical journey in the studio adding a whole new dimension to my music." Kat''s debut cd, Power and Passion, was released in 2005.
One of ten children, KatRose was born in the south Texas border town of Brownsville. Even from an early age, she always had zeal for music, "I can''t remember a time that music was not in my life somewhere." KatRose returned one day from a trip across the border to Matamoros with a ten-dollar guitar and a fifteen-year-old girl''s determination to learn to play. It wasn''t long before she was performing for friends and family and the ten-dollar guitar was replaced with the twelve-string Terada guitar that she still uses today in her live performances. KatRose moved from the Rio Grande Valley of Texas to Houston to finish her college degree. She went on to finish her masters and became a doctoral student at University of Houston before going on to complete her Microsoft certifications.
KatRose gives many hours working with children. Kat has begun an after school project in Houston for kids to learn to play the guitar and write their own songs. The Houston Association of Acoustic Musicians has recently agreed to sponsor this project offering fundraising and mentoring Kat''s Kids. Kat enjoys private time at home with her sons and her mischievous miniature Doberman pinscher, aptly named Rascal Rose. The KatRose home has an "open door" policy where friends and musicians are welcome at anytime to just chill out and jam. Out-of-town touring musicians who need a place to stay frequently use the adjoining fully equipped private apartment. Kat says, "It is my little way to support the music community."
