Kathy came up as a musician in the 90’s Bay Area DIY scene, surrounded by punks, hippies, grungers, 4-trackers, stoner rockers, shoegazers, riot grrrls and indie popsters. Drums were her first instrument, followed by guitar, the 4-track, bass, and keys. She quickly fell in love with playing multiple instruments and recording. She started playing in bands at 17, and making recordings around the same time.
In Roseblood, Kathy is the sole songwriter, arranger and studio instrumentalist. With a genre-spanning love of music, she’s focused on creating a cohesive sound that channels influences of 50’s/60’s girl groups, garage & soul, desert blues, lo-fi fuzz rock and post-punk. She’s also brazenly embracing her dark, emotional side, writing songs heavy with themes of love, loss, heartbreak and isolation.
