About Kat Wright

Kat Wright’s voice is both sultry and dynamic, delicate yet powerful; gritty but highly emotive and nuanced. Add to that voice enough stage presence to tame lions, and the combination of feline femininity proves immediately enchanting. There’s soul flowing in and out of her rock ‘n’ roll with a serpentine seduction. Some of soul music’s sweet, grand dames belt, shout, seethe, and succumb, while Wright sings gently like a heartache’s apology. It’s funky in spots and beautiful all over. And it hurts a little … like it should.


About Gretchen Klempa

Gretchen Klempa is a vocalist based in Boston. Klempa’s vocals, often described as effortless and commanding, dominate her new solo debut project. Klempa’s brand of laid-back and nostalgic indie soul draws inspiration from both the golden age of jazz standards and rock and roll. Gretchen formed the band Gretchen and the Pickpockets in 2012 and began gigging throughout New England. In 2018, the band went on to garner numerous awards, including Jazz Artist of the Year in both the Boston Music Awards as well as the New England Music Awards. Her solo project gives listeners a glimpse of her own music influences, nuances, and personality.
