For the Bronx native Kat Capone, music was love at first sound. She fell in love with the sounds of Madonna, Mariah & Michael, but it was the seductive stylings of Toni Braxton that piqued her interest in singing. Since then she's had a strong love affair with music.
From a young age, she started exploring skills in ballet, tap, jazz and hip hop. While perfecting her talents in dance and music, she found the time to explore other avenues. "I was teased a lot growing up. Kids in school called me a giraffe because I was 10 yrs old and 5'4. So, I decided I wanted to be a model. The agencies were excited until I turned 18 and realized I was still 5'4. I thought I was going to be on Vogue and laugh back at the kids who made fun of me, but it never happened and probably won't, because I'm still 5'4." High school was no better than elementary for Capone. She says those were her most insecure years and she turned to music as her therapy and means of escape.
Through it all, she never lost sight of her musical dreams. Singing and writing remained a priority even when others told her she shouldn't even try. "Here I am. I'm trying. What do I have to lose? I love singing & I can't think of anything better to do with my breath, besides make sure its fresh."
