Kate Thomas on SoundBetter

Powerful, expressive, flexible vocals with an irresistibly smooth tone. Specialising in jazz, swing, Latin, Gypsy & blues. Kate has been compared to Billie Holiday, Eva Cassidy & Amy Winehouse. As a songwriter Kate was supported by PRS for Music back in 2017. Kate's lyrics are compelling, poetic & have the ability to make you both laugh & cry.

“Pink Martini, Billie Holiday, Astrud Gilberto and Tom Waits walk into a ... festival!"

Kate is a London based singer-songwriter with influences from jazz, Latin and world music. Kate traveled the world for many years with a backpack and guitar in tow and has performed in multiple genres including folk, Gypsy, Latin jazz and blues; all of which you can now hear in Kate's music.

In 2019 Kate was supported by Music Gateway to attend the MIDEM music conference in Cannes, France. Back in 2017 Kate was supported by PRS for Music and released her debut EP "The Lion's Raw" and this is what they have been saying about it:

"Sultry dame" - All About Jazz
"Where the energy of rock blends in with the intimacy of folk" - A&R FACTORY
"Will make you want to watch Chocolat again." - FREQUENCY 21
"Kate Thomas you certainly have a style of your own" - MEL WATSON, PHOENIX FM

Gigs include: Acklam Village (supporting The London Gypsy Orchestra), El Garito, Nightjar, Arthouse Music, The Bulls Head Jazz Club, Fishery Wharf Jazz Festival, Green Note, BTL Jazz, Jazz Verse Jukebox at Hoxton Hall, Toulouse Lautrec, Spice of Life, Water Rats, The Boisdale (Finalist in the Battle of the Bands 2014) Ronnie Scott’s, Half Moon Putney, Pizza Express, The RARE Jazz Festival and The Brentwood Festival on the bill with UB40.

  1. Review by Sean Spence

    Kate did vocals on an old school jazzy, musical theatre type of song. She did a wonderful job!

  2. Review by Balduin M.

    Kate has a wonderful voice, is very professional and easy going. During our whole collaboration she tried hard to get the best result. Now we are really happy with the song with Kate and are looking forward to work with her again soon. Highly recommended!

  3. Review by Walter K.

    Music video that Kate Thomas prepared for our song "Happy Birthday!" is a celebration of life and happiness thanks to Kate's sunny and cheerful personality and outstanding artistic talent. Take a look yourself https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tn0dpO6AnBY
    Isn't she wonderful?

    Oh, the joy of making songs with Kate Thomas...

  4. Review by Walter K.

    When you find your singer - you laugh, you shout "Yes!" and you understand that here is the person, the talent that you were looking for your entire life and there is a hope that now your song will shoot to the sky like it was supposed to.

    That's what happens when Kate Thomas sings your song. That's what Kate is about - she brings life, sparks, and stars to your art - because that what she is - a true genius of singer and performer.

    Kate was a pleasure to work with! She was very clear in what she wanted, providing youtube links for me to draw inspiration from, which made my job easy. She was easy to communicate with and a talented singer songwriter. I look forward to more collaborations in the future :)
