Carrie Katz is a singer with vocals that have been compared to Annie Lennox, Beth Gibbons (Portis Head), Natalie Merchant (10,000 Maniacs) Sarah McLachlan and Janis Joplin. Comfortable in acoustic and electric guitar; her finger styling is craftful, unique and clever. Carrie's melodies range from pop because they are irresistibly sing alongable to alternative folk-urbanesque-rock feel that sharpens the sweetness. Socially minded, a feminist and a die-hard romantic, her songs are of love, longing, misadventures, poetic taffy, political Sadukos, biting, hopeful, and whimsical.
From Montreal, she has been playing, performing and singing across Canada, the US and Europe. She and is currently working on her up coming CD, arranged and produced by Geof Holbrook of Plumes and Flottila

"...poetic lyrics and the incredible vocal talent of Carrie Katz..." The Montreal Gazette
Carrie, wrote and sang on 5 songs on the Dragosh Project: Dragosh put their airy beats to good use and creates sheer undiluted beauty. With a striking mixture of light jazz, soul, blues, goth and Eastern influence, each song sounds completely different... Moments of dance are balanced with vulnerability, making for catharsis that is reminiscent of Portishead. Even on "Cloudy Day," which at first seems to be a construction of pure joy, by the very end there are definite hints of misery trying to come out. If Dragosh manage to put out an album per year, this world will be a better place. ~ Exclaim.ca by Erica Leduc
