Kate Blechinger is an inventive and charismatic Edmonton based vocalist, composer, and arranger. Originally hailing from Regina, Saskatchewan, Kate has been active 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. Musically, Kate takes direct influence from the vast prairie landscapes of her youth to create expansive, evocative compositions and arrangements for listeners to enjoy. Pairing the lush harmony and spirited improvisation of jazz with sincere storytelling born out of the folk genre, Kate creates a fusion that is personal, poetic, and playful. Kate’s 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 like liquid peace.” Chris Haynes, CBC News, September 2019.

“Blechinger does a hip balancing act in her unique, thoughtful and entertaining debut. This hybrid work of creative sources and motives goes far beyond simple admiration for a wise musical idol to address issues about being an artist and a woman.”

– Roger Levesque, “The Edmonton Journal”
