Described as a mash up of Paul Kelly and Stevie Ray Vaughan, Kat Wilson’s sonic brew is infused with hours spent sitting on council verge-collection furniture and playing ping pong. The music is taut, sweet and drenched in the azure of the WA coastline that is a core part of Wilson’s heritage. Add to that lyrics that come from a sharp observational eye and speak with a poet’s knack for creating meaning out of the ordinary, and you begin to get a sense of just what Wilson is capable of.
Kat Wilson’s unique and beguiling voice is entirely her own, no comparisons will prepare you for her sound. Her songs effortlessly fuse pop with coastal blues and just a dash of folk, along with the ability to shred on her guitar with the best of them. Know this, and you may just come close to understanding what Kat Wilson was put on Earth to do.
Best just go see one of her shows.
