Taking influence from the vast prairie landscapes of her youth spent on Treaty 4 and Treaty 6 Territory, Kate has been crafting expansive, evocative compositions in the Western Canadian music scene since 2013, bringing her own unique brand of vocal jazz to the TD Edmonton International Jazz Festival, the Yardbird Suite, and countless other venues. Pairing the lush harmony and spirited improvisation of jazz with sincere storytelling born out of the folk genre, Kate creates a musical fusion that is personal, poetic, and playful. Her debut 2018 album, Under a Dancing Sky, features innovative folk-jazz arrangements of Joni Mitchell’s compositions alongside several of Kate’s original songs. “[Her] arrangements are sculpted perfection and Blechinger’s voice is like liquid peace.” Chris Haynes, CBC News, September 2019.
