Native Texas singer/songwriter, Katha Harris, packs the punch of a heavyweight with her smooth, powerful vocals and genre-bending mix of Alternative Country, Blues and folksy Americana. Standing at only 5' 2" (without her boots on, that is), Katha may not appear as a force to be reckoned with, but don't let her petite stature and typically calm demeanor fool you. The potent combination of her Red Dirt roots, trademark fiery curls, "big-as-Texas" passion and defiant determination create the foundation of her own unique style and has established her as a musical trailblazer. Katha's songs, such as her anthem "Paint The Town Red-Headed", crowd favorite "Don’t Come Knockin", and upcoming single “Shotgun”, exhibit a talent that breaks the mold of "typical" and embraces the unexpected.
Katha has discovered through her own songwriting just who she is as an artist. “When I was a little girl, I would pretend I was Reba in her music videos. I wanted to BE Reba!” Katha laughs. “When I first arrived in Nashville in my grandmother’s hand-me-down Buick, I thought I was country and I thought I wanted to write the kind of country music I grew up listening to in the ‘90s. However, the more I write, the more I find my true self in the music that I create.” Katha understands the importance of being true to herself in her art and realizes that it’s okay that she doesn’t fit into the mainstream segment of the country music genre, nor does she want to. “The more I’m left to my own devices,” Katha states confidently, “the more layers of me you’re going to get.” Katha’s fortitude not to give into the pressures to follow the trends gives way to a concoction of alternative country, blues and Americana that her listeners find fresh and innovative.
While Reba remains an inspiration to her, Katha also includes Miranda Lambert, Randy Rogers Band and Patty Griffin as her biggest influences. “Being from Denton, TX, I’ve always had a love for Texas country. I seek out and learn from those artists who have established themselves as uniquely ‘set apart’ such as Patty Griffin and Hayes Carll.”
