Once in every while an artist comes around that is seemingly as fresh, bright, and delicious as an apple picked right off the tree. Void of any obvious imperfection, unmarred by worm holes or stunted by lack of sunlight, the apple is infused with such beauty and vitality that one cannot suppress the urge to taste.
This apple is Kat Jones -- taste, you must.
Kat Jones was born on a sweltering day in the nuclear sunshine of Fresno, CA to two parents, one of whom went into a gas station to get a candy bar and a newspaper whilst the other was left heaving and nervous in the hot car. None, the less, Kat came into being on May 20th (a day which 500 years previous the world nearly met it's demise at the hand of Haley's Comet) in the cold over-conditioned comforts of a sterile hospital. She presently hails from Nashville, TN but tours the world attempting to provide alertness, wakefulness, courage, and comfort in these dark, distracting, and profoundly materialistic times.
Kat Jones (also known as The Reverend Kat Jones) is the songwriter, singer, and soothsayer who heads Kat Jones & The Prophets. Armed with a startling operatic voice, tinged with punk, eastern European, and operatic influences, Kat's voice soars and careens through arid and desperate places to bring life where there was once only desolation and despair.
With one full length record, several e.p.'s, and several national and international tours in her wake, she and The Prophets now prepare for the release of their new album and prepare for a season of heavy summer and fall touring in 2016.
Give in to temptation, there is no sin in partaking of this apple. Barring any unforeseen disaster, the new Kat Jones & The Prophets album will be released in 2016.
