Growing up, singer-songwriter Kat Pace charmed her family and everyone within an earshot, strutting around, singing along to every song she could into a hairbrush. In 2013 a chance opportunity to record some vocal demos for her burgeoning theater career brought her back to those musical roots. Embracing this new chapter in creativity and confidence, Kat issued her masterful debut EP, the aptly titled Survivor in 2014. The process of recording would return her back to music for good. “The medium of recording helped me find myself,” Kat affirms.

Kat has garnered an engaged fanbase through performing regularly in New York and Philadelphia. Select live highlights include performing at a Big Brothers Big Sisters fundraising events with a host of performers, including Joan Jett. In September 2016, she started working on her first full-length album, Back Home. The album showcases a refined pop vibe glimmering with hues of blues, soul, and rock and roll.

Her current album was produced by nine-time Grammy award-winning producer Joe “The Butcher” Nicolo outside of Kat’s hometown, Philadelphia. Nicolo has worked with artists such as Billy Joel, Rolling Stones, Lauryn Hill and Cypress Hill. Back Home has certainly benefitted from “The Butcher’s” years of experience and his famous ear for greatness. Thematically, the album offers a message of self-knowledge, strength, and empowerment.

While Kat is always growing as an artist, Back Home will always have relevant meaning to her path and to the impact she hopes to make with her music. “I wasn’t brave and independent when I was a kid, but music has given me confidence, and now I want to do that for others through writing about strength and independence,” she says.
