About Kat Keturah
Kat Keturah is one of Charleston, South Carolina's leading vocalists, earning her the moniker “Charleston’s Darling of Jazz”. She is also a devoted mother of three, the evening radio personality on gospel radio station Heaven 100.1 and hostess at the premier jazz club in downtown Charleston, Forte Jazz Lounge. Earthy and full of soul, her voice ranges from soothing and sultry with a poignant depth, to a true powerhouse sound that is full of grit and growl and will blow you away.
Born in New Hampshire, she began writing music at the age of fourteen and recorded her first song that same year. To date, she has written and recorded over twenty original songs. Before she was one of Charleston's top singers, she served as a flight medic in the US Air Force. When she moved to Charleston, she was introduced to the overwhelming and powerful influence of Southern gospel and the blues.
She has performed as the opening act for Emmy-nominated Julianne Hough, and Grammy Award winner Bill Champlin from the band Chicago. Featured in the Charleston Blues Revue, she was also a regular at the Mezz and How Art Thou with the Oscar Rivers Jazz Quartet; was nominated for Charleston’s Top Female Vocalist (City Paper) and Charleston’s Best Female Blues Singer (Lowcountry Blues Club); and competed in Memphis at the International Blues Challenge. She is the lead singer of Deepwater Blues, and leads both a blues and jazz band under her name.
“The combination of a soulful voice and a faithful soul has produced a sound that will touch your heart and stir your memories.”
