"The Baby Doll of the Blues”
Kat Wiggins was born in Miami, Florida on Feb 7, 1980. She grew up in a household where there was always background music. Because of the wide range of genres in her parents’ collection, Kat developed a love for all types of music from Gospel & Soul to Country & Rock and everything in between. She grew up singing local programs, church events and family parties with her sister and cousins.
At age 23, Kat landed a gig singing Jazz & Blues standards in a small lounge in Sunny Isles Beach, Florida with only a piano. Since then she has performed throughout Florida, New Orleans, Vietnam, Thailand, China, South Korea, Curacao et Benelux.
Kat’s own musical style is blend of Blues with Hip Hop, Rock, Gospel and Country Music. « It’s all related », she exclaims. She is inspired by young artists such as Janelle Monae, Karreim Riggins, SyncOpera and ZZ Ward and Andra Day who share in her passion to revive music from the vynil days. « It’s about the raw emotion in every note », Kat says. « If I can move someone to feel what I feel when I sing a song, then it’s all worth it ». She travels the world with the intent to « wake up the Blues one song at a time » !
