Los Angeles-based bassist and vocalist Katie Thiroux has clearly established herself as one of the most exciting and in demand musicians today. Thiroux’s unique gift of simultaneously balancing sultry vocals and virtuosic bass playing leaves audiences worldwide in awe. Her most recent album, “Off Beat,” was awarded a “Best Album Of 2018” by Downbeat Magazine as well as "Rising Star" 2018 & 2019. Thiroux is dedicated to jazz education and outreach for students and audiences conducting masterclasses, workshops and in July 2019 released an online course for the renowned website, Discover Double Bass and was asked to start a jazz camp in Maui, Jazz Maui Camp. In addition, Katie is the director of "Women in Jazz" for the Monterey Jazz Festival and is the #1 selling artist on Capri Records. Upcoming performances include the 2020 SF JAZZ "Women in the Lead."
“A multitasking talent who swings her bass with a Mack-truck-powered lilt that would make her hero Ray Brown proud, and who transforms her smallish voice into a thing of delight”
- The New Yorker
"Following 2015's impressive Introducing Katie Thiroux , consider the vocalist-bassists Off Beat youthful promise wonderfully fulfilled."
"Genuine artists like this don't come along everyday, so take note"
- All About Jazz
"The skyrocketing young star is an enchanting singer, a poised and polished acoustic bassist, and an accomplished composer."
-The Boston Globe
