Four worlds collide. Founded in 2010 by veteran jazz and funk vocalist/composer Katrina Kope (lead singer, primary songwriter and keytar/synth player), along with former new-wave guitarist and trip-hop beat maker Tyler Kope (on synths and percussion), Purr Gato emits an attractive, yet occasionally ominous brand of Dark-Wave-Electro-Clash, combining a wild selection of musical influences to generate their trademark style. Sometime described as, “if Depeche Mode, The Knife, and Zero 7 had a baby.”
After solidifying their lineup, with classical and jazz musician Brittany Kohl (on synths and backing vocals) as well as master flamenco percussionist and rock drummer David Levin (on drums and percussion), Purr Gato started hitting the Seattle clubs in April 2012. After a string of performances at venues such as Neumos, The Crocodile, Nectar Lounge, The High Dive, The Hard Rock Café and more, they ventured into Electrokitty Studios to record their debut album "Heart Beat", engineered and produced by Gary Reynolds, in December 2012, and released at the Columbia City Theater on June 14th, 2013.
