Soul/RnB Release: Kat Webb's 2nd full length album, "A Better Picture" getting rave reviews!
You can have a listen at this link


Kat Webb is an Austin, TX-born soul singer with a warm and flexible voice and a great rnb sensibility, but confining genres definitely aren't her style. Since graduating Yale University in 2007 with a degree in English and substantial training with the Yale School of Music, Webb has resided in Brooklyn, NY, singing background for various NYC artists, writing for up-and-coming artists and interning in audio engineering at The Honablue Institute (formerly Royal Blue Studios).

In May 2011, she made her solo debut with “An Old Soul”, a compilation of jazz standards and soul classics re-imagined for the modern listener, recorded entirely in analog with a live band to recreate the true vintage sound. Since then she's been performing in venues all along the East coast, including the legendary Lenox Lounge, Nuyorican Poets Cafe, Bowery Poetry Club, Drom, and many more.

The release of "A Better Picture" (November 2012) marks the first time Kat presents to her audience her own original music. Seasoned soul veterans Christian Ver Halen & Jesse Fischer co-produced, and Grammy-winners were involved in its production. It draws on the numerous musical styles in Webb’s background, including some folk from her home state of Texas, some blues from the South, and some New Jack Swing from her new home on the East Coast.

“I named this album ‘A Better Picture’ because this album is my way of giving the listeners insight into me as a person and as an artist. It’s also my debut as a songwriter of my own music, so I’m beyond thrilled people are responding so strongly and positively.” –Kat Webb

Big things are coming for this Southern Songbirg!

With tight musicians and intriguing lyrics, Happy Freuds delivers high energy guitar rock with stylistic flair on Echo Of Sounds, their debut release. Produced with a minimum of overdubs or fixes, the album consists of a mix of original material, rearrangements of works from others and selected, less known, classic rock.

A kinetic rhythm section is the bones of the music, offering interesting patterns that augment sometimes unexpected harmonic changes. It's brainy rock, in other words, meant for music lovers who can appreciate the quality. Teo's vocals are raspy and expressive, growly when necessary - perfect for the musical mode. Teo also covers lead guitar, adapt at ear worm leads, with a tone that can be clean or dirty as required

Their sound ranges from straight up hard rock in tracks like The Mountain to the pop-flavoured acoustic Background Noise and folky To …
