Kat Webb / Press

"It's a real a treat to come across a singer that has the richness of vocal quality to compare to the talents of Desree and Corinne Bailey Rae, and even greater to discover that this artist has songwriting skills to match!"

"Following on from the groundwork laid out in ‘An Old Soul’, this album ["A Better Picture"] builds expertly on that foundation and expands it even further with a swathe of everything glorious 90s-esque r&b and sweet summer soul thrown in to the mix."

"Nice new acoustic independent Soul album from singer/songwriter Kat Webb featuring live musicians including Jesse Fischer on keys,Christian Ver Halen on Guitar and Lakecia Benjamin on Sax with Kendra Ross adding some great backing vocals."

"The tasty “Slow It Down” brings out the serene quality of Webb’s voice, but it’s the smouldering, smooth and slow brewing “Can’t Stop Thinkin’ ‘Bout You,” that is by far the standout cut. A mellow, finger snapping, pining affair, its mournful and broodingly soulful alto sax slow-burns to the hypnotic and sexually covetous chants that has Webb rolling in the musical afterglow."

"There’s something about Neo-Soul songstress Kat Webb that resonates deep within my soul. Her silky voice makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up. Her music is sort of a 90’s throwback and brings back the luster that’s obviously missing from mainstream R&B today."

"One of my favorite songs is “Keep on”, with the brilliant Camp Lo touch in it."

"Old school name dropping can start with Anita Baker, certainly as smooth and calming, but not as broad and deep. Contemporary comparisons could be made with Corinne Bailey Rae, although Kat Webb's voice stays at a higher pitch than these others. These pointed differences are a good thing. Any artist needs their own distinct sound. The background vocals and instrumentation are classic soul, with some jazz vibes."

"Such amazing production, superb vocals from Kat, and a live lounge feel that will get ANYONE up out of their seat and dancing!"

"One listen to debut single, "Waver," and how Webb's rich n' syrupy vocals cascade over an acoustic backdrop, it is crystal clear that she has her heartstrings in her homestead. Acts like Dionne Farris and Des'ree come to mind when listening to Webb, making her a delicacy to indulge in as such earthy homespun soul sounds are quite scarce in this icy sparse soul-droid guise we've latched onto for the 21st century."

"...make room for [Kat Webb] and her own way of making music into your heart..."

"Such a stunning frictionless sound she has. Great Artist!! hope to hear more from her in the future."

"Her sound has got our mushy feelings turned up on high, taking us back to R&B of the late 90s."

"Webb begins An Old Soul with a bluesy swagger for “Come Sunday,” the Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn composition covered by Cannonball Adderly and Mahalia Jackson with Ellington’s Orchestra. One of the most coveted jazz classics, another Ellington & Strayhorn creation “Lush Life,” showcases Webb’s melancholy approach. Webb sprinkles some sass on Al Green’s southern soul signature classic, “I’m Still in Love with You.” Her ability to flex some swing is evident on the Frank Sinatra classic, “All or Nothing At All.” The absolute highlight on An Old Soul is The Beatles’ “Blackbird,” where Webb’s turns on the vocal jets, climaxed by a hypnotizing duet with saxophonist Ezra Brown."

"You have it! You have a beautiful instrument; such a unique voice. You don't sound like anyone. You need to be out there, singing. You need to be gigging!"

Gordon Chambers - Grammy-nominated songwriter, "If You Love Me" & "I Apologize"

“If you're a fan of people like Ella Fitzerald, Jill Scott and Marvin Gaye, you’ll love Kat Webb. She’s brought the past to the present with a classy album of grown up music.”

"Her voice heard over a sax is like velvet on all these aforementioned tracks. For a debut album, it demonstrates that Webb can hold up her own with classics, and has the potential to break out if she branches out to original songs."
