Katy Free’s love of music began when she was just a toddler. Although her singing career began in Church, she quickly found herself singing in musicals and choirs that toured and performed in prestigious venues such as Carnegie Hall and The Lincoln Center. While studying musicology at the University of Tennessee Knoxville, she toured the eastern United States sharing her passion and love of Jazz music.
Katy’s multifaceted musical experience and versatile voice make her well equipped for many types of music and performance. Her specialty is taking songs from every genre and re- arranging them in a jazz style. Her velvet voice will reach out and wrap itself around you. But if it is a party atmosphere you are seeking, get ready to rock.
Along with the release of her first album in 2015, Katy stays incredibly busy as a solo Jazz artist, but also performs as a duo with the extremely gifted jazz pianist and composer Wendel Werner, a guitar duo, her trio “Katy Free Three” and full bands. Any and all of these talented musicians perform in concert venues, jazz clubs, bars and restaurants, weddings, Church services and other venues.
With her wide array of musical experiences, interest in various genres, and her desire to be the very best musician she can, Katy is in constant study and strives to share her deep love of music with her audiences.
"Katy...has a velvet voice that can lift you to heaven and throw you back down again...And Katy can rock out! Who knew?"
-Alan Sims, Knoxville Urban Guy
"[Her] voice makes me go 'Ahh.'"
"Her voice [is] a layer of warm honey drizzled over old standards."
