Seen & Heard
Sure she’s often compared to Nelly Furtado, Gwen Stefani, and the late Amy Winehouse but there is something special about Kat Dahlia. She draws from all the aforementioned ladies to form an amalgamation that is uniquely her. “There’s no other way to stand out than just being yourself,” she says. “I write my own music. People say my voice is very unique and I do this rappy thing that’s kind of different, but if you really want to break it down, I’m just being myself.”
Born Katriana Huguet, there’s nothing she loves more than proving her naysayers wrong. She’s waited on tables to fund studio sessions, a music video and an EP, and works hard – in which she walks into the studio and lays down nine tracks in a day! With her infectious vocals, Kat was soon signed on to Epic Records. Wanting more, she moved to New York where she was knocked off track by a toxic relationship. But what she got out of it was more confidence and the insight to channel her emotions into songs.
Her sound alternates between pure, lyrical fire in tracks like “Fuego” and “Fire Man”, and poetically pondering life in “My Garden” and “Walk On Water.” “I feel like a messenger,” she explains. “I want to send a positive message of love and put out good music that constantly challenges me as an artiste.”
