Gulf Coast Records Artist Kat Riggins on Tour in Support of Latest Album

Ultra-exciting Gulf Coast Records blues singer Kat Riggins continues to tour in support of her latest album for the label, Cry Out.

Inspired by the variety and abundance of music in her parent’s collection, it makes sense that her own music is peppered with hints of R&B, soul, country, gospel, hip-hop, and rock-n-roll. Make no mistake; however, Kat Riggins is undeniably a BLUES WOMAN! She travels the world with the sole mission of keeping the blues alive and thriving through her Blues Revival Movement.

What is a “Blues Revival” anyway? According to Kat, it is a musical revolution that aims to awaken the masses and introduce them to the sincerity behind blues music. “It’s about the raw emotion in every note”, exclaims Kat Riggins as she attempts to describe her love of the genre. Backed by a dynamic band, Kat invokes said emotion through high energy soul shakers as well as heart breaking ballads. During a meet and greet after a sold out show in Belgium, a fan once jokingly asked Kat if ever there was a time she “phoned it in” to avoid ending up exhausted, sweaty and bruised from the tambourine… “If I can move someone to feel what I feel when I sing a song, then it’s all worth it”, said the Miami born singer-songwriter.

“A petite vocalist with a potent delivery and electrifying voice, Kat Riggins holds nothing back…”- Blues Blast Magazine

“The diminutive Ms. Riggins may be small in stature, but she’s blessed with a powerhouse voice that will grab listeners.” – Phoenix Blues Society/BluesBytes

“Not unreconstructed but not modern just for the sake of it…The spiritual granddaughter of Koko Taylor and southern blues show bands, Riggins has the stone cold knack for hitting it out of the park that would make all the blues greats before her quite proud.”- Midwest Record

She has been vocally compared to Koko Taylor, Etta James and Tina Turner to name a few. While obviously influenced by those icons, Mrs. Riggins has a voice and delivery all her own. Full of power, rasp and grit she can belt out one of her contemporary blues originals one minute, then deliver a tender, sultry standard the next. She does this all while making each person in her audience feel as if she is speaking directly to them. Blues Revivals are interactive and personal no matter how large the crowd. This intimacy is what makes every Blues Revival a memorable experience…not only for the audience, but for Kat.

“I thank God that my passion is my purpose… That is to help preserve this endangered species called The Blues.” – Kat Riggins
