One of the strongest singers emerging from the Philadelphia Americana music scene today, rockin rockabilly wildcat Kathia Jane has a passion and energy all her own. Kathia’s vivid vocal intensity simultaneously expresses emotional nuance AND rocks the joint to pieces! With her band KATHIA JANE AND THE V8s (established 2008) and prior to that THE KATHIA JANE BAND (established 2005) Kathia has played distinguished venues in Philadelphia, New York, Connecticut and New Jersey. Since 2010 her recordings have started garnering international airplay.
She is extremely excited about her soon-to-be-released debut EP, entitled TRANSCEND and thrilled to have worked with a marvelous array of awesome personnel on this album, including — among others — on guitars: Jef Lee Johnson (who has recorded with Billy Joel, Aretha Franklin and Melody Gardot) and Dean Bailin, guitarist on the Number 1 hit song “Escape (The Pina Colada Song)”, as well as engineers: Grammy-award-winner, Glenn Barratt and Brian McTear, who produced Dr. Dog’s latest CD.
