"An Italian/German rooted singer and songwriter who loves to combine mediterranean folkore, latin and jazz with melodic poplines“

Her sound is unique, the songs as colorful as life itself.

Maybe it is her Italian temper that makes her express everything a little stronger, the need to dive into a feeling and explore borders, musically and literally, on stage and in real life.

Being raised in Berlin she got influenced very soon by all the various cultures the city has to offer. Via high school in Paris and jazz studies at Liceu in Barcelona (Pedro Javier Gonzalez, Victor de Diego, Inaki Sandoval) she took the road to the Netherlands, her current location.

After graduating cum laude from ArtEZ Conservatory's Popacademie (Shirma Rouse, Danny Sahupala, Tjeerd Oosterhuis) in spring 2010 as singer and songwriter, Katharina developed her skills as singer, backing vocalist and performer in various projects such as her vocal group Sharp (known from TV programma The Sing Off) and her 50s cover trio The Petticoats. Her passion for latin music resulted in a latin lounge collaboration with Omega 3 whose first single was was published in Summer 2012.

As an extension to her Bachelor minor music management and work as booker/PR, Katharina has recently obtained her Master's Degree in Cultural Economics and Entrepreneurship at the Erasmus University in Rotterdam, NL. On top of that, she has gained experience in teaching music for renowned music schools throughout the Netherlands.

In short: enough inspiration for her first album: Open-hearted songs about love and life, with all the shades of grey in between. Written to be shared. On stage and in real life.
