"Kat has a voice that draws you into her magical world.
I think she´s absolutely marvelous!"
-Liane Carroll, Best Female Vocalist, BBC JAZZ Awards
"American singer tipped for the top"
"As any jazz instrumentalist will tell you, if you can find a singer who is able to scat be-bop licks, and on top of that, sing well in other styles, she's one to keep in the address book. Kat Gang is just such a vocalist. With a crystal clear voice, this Berklee and NYU graduate is making her rounds on the New York scene, with her blend of jazz and more contemporary styles. We're especially impressed by her solo on the standard "Like Someone In Love", and her original song "Rosie". Be sure to stop by and check her out!"
"Kat reminds me of Anita O´Day – the kind of vocalist who has her eyes open and yet remains exquisitely relaxed in her lyric and the way in which she sings. She does these amazing things, while smiling, showing off her amazing range while looking like she is hardly working at all."
-Helga Davis, WNYC
"I cannot tell you how impressed I am with her singing, she is very very talented!"
-Sheila Jordan, Jazz Singer
