Kat McDowell – Los Angeles, USA

Singer | Songwriter | Guitarist
Genre: Pop, Ocean Pop


Kat McDowell blends elements of pop, rock, and folk to create a high-spirited and cheerful sound that is recognizably her own.  As a multi-cultural artist raised in Japan and New Zealand, she offers up a light-hearted, fresh, and airy sound, free of distractions with her vivacious and enthusiastic performances.

Kat now calls Los Angeles her home and when she isn’t playing gigs throughout the greater Los Angeles area or touring Japan, New Zealand, or other International destinations, chances are, you’ll find her chilling out at the beach with her Ukulele or surfing some rad waves.

Kat McDowell is a singer and songwriter who plays the Ukulele, guitar, and at times, composes new music on a piano.  She sings in English and Japanese and delivers emotionally powerful and moving melodies.
