Vocalist Hetty Kate, described as “the real deal” and “one of the best swing vocalists on the current scene” (Will Friedwald - Author & Jazz Critic USA), was born in England, raised in Melbourne, and has been based in Paris since 2017. With a career spanning more than a decade Hetty toured for many years with acclaimed Australian musician James Morrison, and can now be found on stages large and small from New Zealand to New York. Funny, irreverent, warm and natural on stage, with a clear, sweet sounding voice, Hetty swings hard and has often been compared to Stacey Kent, Peggy Lee or a young Ella Fitzgerald yet with an approach entirely her own. It's this quality along with a great love of the American Songbook that draws in audiences and musicians alike.
For the Paris Cat dates on her first Australian tour in three years, Hetty has invited some of her longest standing musical friends and inspirations to join her. Expect an evening of favourites from Hetty's album releases, stories, swing and laughter as we welcome Hetty back to the Paris Cat Loft.
