Kate Blechinger is an inventive and charismatic Edmonton based vocalist, composer, and arranger. Originally hailing from Regina, Saskatchewan, Kate takes direct influence from the vast prairie landscapes of her youth to create expansive, evocative compositions and arrangements for listeners to enjoy. Kate’s “jazz” is the musical equivalent of an artist’s palette, and is definitely a hybrid of sorts; she pairs the harmony, instrumentation and improvisation of more traditional jazz forms with the lyricism of modern jazz and folk genres. What results is a music that is personal, poetic, and playful – and one that involves audiences in a truly eclectic musical journey!
In November 2018, Kate released her debut album, Under a Dancing Sky, which features innovative folk-jazz arrangements of Joni Mitchell’s compositions alongside several of Kate’s original songs. This collection of songs is a tribute not only to Joni Mitchell, who celebrated her 75th Birthday in November 2018, but also to Kate’s experiences growing up on the prairies. Recently, Kate was honoured to receive the Jazz Recording of the Year award at the Edmonton Music Awards for her version of “Night in the City”.
