Kate Blechinger is an inventive and charismatic Edmonton based vocalist, arranger, and composer.
In her own compositions and arrangements, Kate takes influence from the sincere, lyrical storytelling typical of folk music icons like Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen, and Neil Young, and injects her stories with the jazz harmony, instrumentation, and improvisation of artists from Ella Fitzgerald to Becca Stevens. The result is an intriguing and totally individual blend of styles that keeps audiences engaged and entertained.
Her interest in this musical fusion has led her to present internationally at Court & Spark: An International Symposium on the Work of Joni Mitchell in Lincolnshire, United Kingdom in July 2015, where she presented arrangements of Joni's Mitchell's songs from graduation recital from MacEwan University’s BMus program.
