". . . Katya Gorrie and her band stepped up to make it a richly memorable night . . . what truly sets her apart is the personality she brings to her singing . . . Just right."

 - Bath Chronicle Review

 

 

Katya Gorrie is a vocalist, performer and composer from Vancouver, Canada, now living and working in the UK.

She has toured extensively and recorded two albums in the UK.

POUSSE CAFÉ, which has been featured on BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio Suffolk, BBC Radio Bristol, Devon and Somerset, Campbell Burnap’s Jazz program on SMOOTHJAZZ, and most recently part of Ned Sherrin’s music quiz show, COUNTERPOINT.

The second album, TALES OF MISBEHAVIOR,  was released on Katya's own label, Paramour, and showcases her versatile, sultry voice as well as her strong songwriting skills. Tales features musicians Dave O'Higgins, Martin Shaw, Denny Ilett & Anthony Kerr.

Katya has toured throughout Canada, the US, and Europe, performing at Jazz festivals, clubs and theatres to enthusiastic audiences.

She began her professional singing career after four years of classical study at the Conservatory of Music and another three years in an intensive Jazz program at Capilano College in Canada.

As well as forming her own various Jazz ensembles Katya has composed music for theatre, arranged and written music for her original band LIBEATOS, founded three different vocal Jazz trios and has worked in film and television as both a singer and an actor.

It is this combination of musical and performance experience that give Katya her unique and inimitable vocal style.
