Kat Riggins“It’s about the raw emotion in every note”, Kat says. “If I can move someone to feel what I feel when I sing a song, then it’s all worth it”. With her own band, Blues Revival, she travels the world with the intent to “wake up the blues one song at a time!” With this in mind, the Blues Revival album was born.

Of the 10 songs on Blues Revival, two are covers chosen for their sentiment and groove, while the other eight are written by Kat herself. They combine traditional blues with some elements of gospel, southern rock and even hints of hip-hop. “Blues Is the New Black,” for example, is an up-tempo tune about blues music making a comeback. The lyrics are set in a foot stompin’ celebration of gospel drums and bass with blues guitar holding it all together. “Good Girl Blues” is about cutting loose from society’s expectations of what a proper young lady is and just enjoying life. In this laid back original you can pick out morsels of urban drums and funk bass. Then there are songs like “Queen Bee” and “Wail Away” which are straight blues grooves all the way!

Kat Riggins’s focus is to be a part of this musical revolution that aims to awaken the masses and introduce them to the sincerity behind the blues. That is what the Blues Revival Movement is all about!

“The little energetic, live and sensuous Kat Riggins was born to be on stage. Her voice is a mix of Bettye LaVette and Tina Turner, and she knows to entertain the audience and involve them in her show!”- Walter VanHeukelom, Concert Monkey
