A triple threat talent from Los Angeles, Katie Thiroux has garnered considerable attention for her bravura bass playing, assured singing and compelling compositions. Her debut album, Introducing Katie Thiroux (2015), received international critical acclaim including “Debut Record of the Year” from the Huffington Post, All About Jazz, Jazz Journalists Association and “Top 5 Debut Records of the Year” from NPR Jazz Critics Poll. Lending contemporary flair to mainstream stylings, Thiroux carries on the hard swinging tradition of such bass masters such as Ray Brown and John Clayton, while channeling the buoyant vocal finesse of iconic singers including Anita O’Day, Chet Baker and Ella Fitzgerald. Thiroux offers in-the-moment jazz that draws upon the rich history of the music, from swing to bebop and beyond. Recent performances include Blue Note, Birdland, UCO Jazz Lab, GPAC Concert Series, Juneau Jazz and Classics, San Jose Summer Jazz Fest, WBGO “The Checkout” and NAMM. Thiroux’s upcoming sophomore release, Off Beat, will be released on Capri Records in the Fall of 2017.
