Down to earth and soaring high...
Kat’ Lee Jones is a singer-songwriter from Belgium, now living in Nashville, TN. With only a guitar in-hand and a piercing voice, Kat’Lee Jones brings passionate and empowering songs that move the soul...and your feet. She is currently working on a project to alleviate PTSD for returning soldiers through her music and eventually at her Center for “Re-programmation”. “It is music that uproots deeply engrained trauma, and transforms it while purging it - so that it is replaced by a boost of self-awareness, nourishment, appreciation for all that you are, and most importantly, acceptance for the purpose of betterment and growth”, explains OEF/ OIF Veteran, TSgt Pampo. Kat’Lee’s music also targets those who have suffered from abuse, whether by someone else, or themselves. She explains, “Re-
programmation will help alleviate the trauma and switch those connections to help individuals evolve into a wholesome being to find their true selves.”
Life's a party so Kat`lee is already performing for quite a number of years on different stages and in all kind of bands. Punk with Purge and Red Zebra, covers with Mrs Nice Guy and Angel Eyes, backing-vocal with amongst others Joe Cocker and the Laatste Show Band or country with Bruno Deneckere in the Ancienne Belgique in Brussels. Inspired by Bruno Deneckere, Kat`Lee writes her own repertoire in a short time. Songs about being positive, building confidence, finding your own way in life and of course about love.
Her music can best be described as a mixture between country and americana, with a strong influence of traditional country. She has been singing in various doing various styles of music, from originals to covers and from rock to country. In fact, she discovered her knack for country a few years ago and immediately set off to write her own collection of songs that suit her and her voice best.
Her live performances are intimate, out-going, dynamic and energetic. Whether she plays an acoustic set in front of just a handful of listeners or a major stage in front of thousands, she always delivers a strong performance, wowing her audience with her passionate voice and songs that tell about life and love, Kat”Lee turns every performance into an event you won’t forget.
While visiting Nashville in August of 2007 she discovered where her heart and home is. A performance at the world famous’ Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge during that first visit to Nashville left a big impression to all that attended and word spread around fast. It was that impression that earned her an invitation to perform at 2008’s annual CMA’s Global Artist Night, the official kick off of the CMA Music Fest, Country Music’s Biggest Party. Again she wowed her audience and it was then and there that Kat”lee knew where she really belonged: in Nashville TN, Music City USA, home of Country Music. Thus she decided to move to Nashville to be where she felt home.
However, being as modest and down-to-earth as she is, she will not forget the audience that was there from the beginning and she has vowed to return to Europe a few times a year to keep in touch with her European fans and make new fans as well.
