A mixture of teaching and whole load of incredible singing and you get Kathryn Lowdon and her talented Soul Engineers
Kathryn is a rich vocalist with timeless charisma, emotional potency and old soul. She is a singer songwriter, artist, performer and band leader from Newcastle who is leaving a sweep in her trail. Her unique voice has a beautifully rich tone, five octave vocal range and a powerful presence.
She is inspired by greats such as Mahalia Jackson, Aretha Franklin, Billie Holiday and Sarah Vaughan and piano players like as Mary Lou Williams and Monk.
Here’s ‘Now You’re Gone’ which is a soulful ballad of love and regret.
As an artist, Kathryn has immersed herself in the genres she values most, using her unique voice to perform soul, blues, jazz, gospel and pop, with this sonic variation she can attune to her audience. Her latest soul project is Kathryn and The Soul Engineers for which she has hand picked her favourite musicians. This band enables her to bring her large voice and quirky personality and style to life through a unique stage performance.
A song of triumph over adversity here’s ‘F@£% You’.
She is a student of Greg Enriquez and Spencer Welch, proteges of Michael Jackson’s singing mentor Seth Riggs and owns her own business Kathryn Lowdon Vocal Studio where she instructs and mentors singing students in her hometown, Newcastle Upon Tyne. Kathryn is also fortunate enough to work with Bob Stoloff, Vocal Lead of Jazz from the Berklee College of Music in Boston with whom she studied jazz and scat singing.
Kathryn’s debut soul EP, Cake is lyrically outspoken, empowering and unafraid.
