Kat Gaffney, a native of Greensboro, North Carolina is an up and coming singer/songwriter based out of New York City. She writes both Country and Christian music, with her debut Christian EP releasing May 3 and an upcoming Country EP with a release date to be announced.

A storyteller by nature, Kat grew up creating stories and songs that she would perform for her stuffed animals. This led her parents to enroll her in acting classes, which eventually led to her studying musical theatre at Coastal Carolina University. However, after graduation and moving to New York City, she quickly realized that her passion was not to share stories already written, but her own story.

Kat grew up listening to Country, Christian worship, Southern Soul, and musical theatre and her musical style is a unique fusion of all of those styles. According to Kat, what really excites her about writing and performing her own music is that ‘’there’s no boundary to where this can go. I get to tell my own story and every song that I write is another chapter. I love being able to take stories from my life and create songs that people can relate to and enjoy singing along to. I hear music in everything and firmly believe that songs are everywhere, you just have to ‘catch’ the right one at the right time and when you do it’s magic.
