Born and raised in New York, this Latina artist who now hails from Miami has a unique sound and style that’s starting to make waves with industry insiders in the South. Embracing multiple genres and styles, Katt uses her natural talents as a singer to weave engaging lyrics alongside catchy melodies for ear-pleasing vibes that a new wave of fans will love.
Her debut single, “Do It,” is a club song that’s been getting a lot of attention throughout Miami. Written as homage to other girls who work in the adult entertainment industry as cam girls, the song explores the constant battle those women face between trying to make money while also chasing down their own dreams.
“It’s not just about me but about girls getting their money and doing what you have to do,” Katt said. “There are a lot of people on YouTube who are doing things for free, but as a cam girl, you can’t do it for free – you have to work for your money. That’s a sentiment that I believe anyone in the world can relate with, and I want other people to relate to it through their own experiences. It’s definitely Hip Hop but it has more of a hype-type vibe to it. I’m an urban girl, and that shows in my music, but this song is definitely an anthem for anyone who has ever had to work hard for their money.”
One of the things Katt said she’s most proud of as a musician is her ability to be versatile. She enjoys all types of music and genres – from Frank Ocean to Coldplay to Rihanna. She particularly loves the model Rihanna has set for other women who have aspirations of being musicians, and she looks to the musical legend for inspiration to overcome things in her own life.
As she’s explored her natural talents with music, Katt said she’s been encouraged to discover a bevy of abilities that lend themselves to great songs. She has a good voice and knows how to play with her voice to create different sounds and vibes. She also has an adept ability to fuse different genres and beats. And best of all, she’s really good with lyrics. She vows to fans that shallow lyrics will never pass across her lips and promises that only the highest quality music will end up being recorded and released to the world.
“I want people to be like, ‘Wow! I can’t believe how good she is!’” Katt said. “I want people to realize I have a good voice and I make great music – that my lyrics have meaning. I’m not just a cam model or an Instagram girl. I want people to feel energized by my music. If you’re not having a good day or you’re not confident that day, listen to my music and it’ll help you feel confident and energized, happy, and motivated. At the end of the day, when it comes to my music, I want people to be wowed.”
Katt is currently hard at work on another single that she’s tentatively calling “Warrior,” which she said she plans to release sometime in the next month or two.
